Changing the face of diabetic treatment

Changing the face of diabetic treatment

  There’s a quiet revolution gaining momentum to turn around the care and treatment of diabetes, a disease stripping away the health of Barbadians at a rapid rate.

A Beautiful release

  It’s beautiful, feel-good and soul-soothing music, with global appeal. That is my assessment of the debut album titled Beautiful and just released by Kingdom Arts For Islandworship. The three songs that comprise the album are a work of art and a production of the highest quality. I kid you not! When I sat and [...]

Food for life

  “The herbs are for the healing of the nations.” This statement found in three books of the Holy Bible is the premise on which renowned herbalist and naturalist Dr Sebi bases his radical approach to health. Speaking to hundreds of Barbadians who packed the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre last night, the man who gained [...]

Linton was among ‘derby’ stars

  George Linton went to his grave on Wednesday not only as one of the most outstanding local club cricketers but also with a unique record over the last 35 years in the famous derby which features Empire and Spartan. As promised a couple weeks ago when I paid tribute to the former successful Spartan [...]

Men, get checked early!

  More Barbadian men are taking charge of their health and facing up to a disease that threatens their longevity.
