Slave Diets

Slave Diets

Since 1962 Cubans have done without many things Canadians, Europeans and other take for granted like food. The fact is the King's slaves were accorded more food than Castro's slaves.

Food Ration in 1842
for slaves in Cuba:

Meat, chicken, fish -- 8 oz
Rice -- 4 oz
Starches -- 16 oz
Beans -- 4 oz

Castro Gov. Ration since 1962:

Meat, chicken, fish -- 2 oz.
Rice -- 3 oz
Starches -- 6.5 oz
Beans -- 1 oz.


This is but one of the reasons why in Cuba the main cause of death for people 15 to 48 is suicide. Eighty-three thousand Cubans died in the Straits of Florida trying to escape that despair - the despair of having no future in Cuba, nothing but regret for ever supporting the big liar Fidel in the past and a present filled with hunger and fear.
