There are many wonderful features of the south. However, sometimes it lacks health elements that people need. Many children lack a number of nutrients, and due to the lack of health and safety features in Mexico, they are not able to access the proper nutrients they need to develop properly. These nutrients include Calcium, Iron, Potassium and more.
To solve this nutrition issue, I have come across one nutrient that can be made readily available to anyone in the world. It’s an inexpensive replacement for iron – Lucky Iron Fish. What this essentially is, is a little fish made from iron that you can cook in soup. It can be used many times over and over again. Through drinking the soup, you can receive the proper iron supplements you need.
This will help control the balance the deficiency that many of these children have. It’s not just for kids, it’s for anyone requiring an iron supplement. As for the calcium deficiency, I guess it’s lucky that Mexico produces a lot of oranges. Calcium is needed for proper bone growth. Without it, the health of your bones will deteriorate and will be easily broken. That is definitely not something we want for small children who are going through developing bodies.
Hopefully eventually, Mexico can become a place where everyone is able to access these best iron supplements for kids as well as proper health care and safety. Although parts of Mexico can be safe like Cancun, there are many other parts that are filled with hunger, disease and danger. The least we can do right now is to try to fix the lacking of certain health elements. As for now, this is all we can do without the government intervening. We can look for more ways to provide nutrients to people who either cannot afford it or cannot get access to it.
The south is an interesting place. From New Mexico over to Southern California you tend to see a lot of variation in terms of climates, cultures, and people. How exactly one defines “the south” is an interesting question. There is a rich history of turmoil and political strife over the land of the south. Much of Texas, New Mexico and surrounding states were at one point owned by Mexico, and taken during the Mexican- American war of the mid 1800’s. Mexico lost the war due to instability, lack of planning, and poor military leadership and strategy. This was a disastrous result of a bloody, and unfair war. You can read more on the wikipedia article, here.
The loss of the land (like almost all of Texas) lead into a period of emotional downturn within the country of Mexico. People wondered what exactly went wrong and what sort of political leadership led to this result. This in turn lead to a political turn where people began to wonder about the efficiency and quality of the Mexican leadership.
Mexico today is a very complicated country. There are areas like Cancun and Cayo Coco where tourists go and are incredibly safe. There are also areas like Juarez that many people would not be as safe. Just recently two surfers traveling through Bandit territory on the Baja peninsula ran into some trouble and faced a major issue with some mexican druglords. They were never found unfortunately. The only remnant was a burned out van that remained off of a main road.
Not all of Mexico is bad. Of course, there are some climate related issues that have emerged in recent times. The lack of the prevalence of the Humboldt squid is a major signifies that things in the climate may be changing.
Over the next few posts I am going to be focusing on a wide range of topics about the south- hopefully you have a chance to read further!
