How about we look at the following factors in Newfoundland that contribute to possible high levels of diabetes in our children?? 1. Lack of sunshine; therefore Vitamin D 2. Lack of fully nutritional vegetables and fruits- stuff is dead by the time it ends up on the grocery shelves or it's well preserved with chemicals that they apply with a mask on...hmmmm?? 3. Lack of education, all around, on eating whole foods ( I mean real "whole" foods) 4. Elimination of wheat and dairy in the diet. The body can not process it anymore and they've been heavily altered over the past 20 years - ie: GMO's and hormones in dairy) 5. Questionable meat. Unless it's not injected with a million hormones and dyes or more recently genetically modified. 6. High fructose and corn derived sugars in packaged and processed foods are like feeding the body rat poison, ditto goes for all of the chemical sugars like aspartame, saccharin etc. That brings me to my final comment....it really surprises me that no one is mentioning the fact that Newfoundland has the highest population of vaccinated children in the country. Vaccines are severely damaging to the immune systems of the young and elderly. In closing, I don't care what research has found contrary to these things... we are polluting our bodies. Diabetes wasn't this prevalent 50 years ago...think about why? Stop eating crap and learn more about how to take care of yourself and your children. Don't blame it on genetics…

Gamblers Speak Anonymously March 25, 2014

Struck by an anonymous letter about VLT usage emailed in from a person writing under the name “John Doe,” The Telegram launched an investigation into his/her written observations of a lack of detailed reporting of VLT numbers by the Atlantic Lottery Corp. and, more importantly, claims the true impact of the machines was being hidden as a result.

The Telegram found evidence of single VLTs in the province taking in more than $600,000 in cash in less than a year and began to collect stories of continued abuse of VLTs, despite a provincial government push, beginning in 2005, to curb problem usage.

As the stories have been published, people have contact the paper to share their stories as “John Doe” did.

The Telegram encourages anyone who wants to share their story, offer a comment, or raise a concern over VLT use to email: afitzpatrick@thetelegram.com.
