WORKOUT OF THE DAY

Tuesday 6.11.19


I find it easy to believe that physical activity in general improves health. But we think that the reason we get fat is because we take in excess calories. We think that if we increase our calorie expenditure and reduce our intake, we will get leaner. And there’s precious little evidence to support that.

Spent the day with PS Kenya, a non-profit organization that works towards better healthcare in the country. The organization promotes markets and distributes low cost HIV tests, condoms ($0.05), birth control ($1.30), malaria mosquito nets and water treatment products. The CEO Joice Wanderi-Maina discussed the issues in relying in international government funding and the impact of current US and UK politics in their operations. We had the opportunity to go into the field with their team to visit bars, pharmacies and grocery stores that carry their products and discuss the challenges in promoting birth control and preservatives in the communities. -Taina Schuster
