MALNUTRITION BLAMED FOR NEUROLOGIC DISORDERS By Rafael Contreras Bueno, Cuba Free Press.

PINAR DEL RÍO - The scarcity of food and medicines is responsible for the biggest epidemic in neurologic disorders ever seen in Cuba, according to a physician practicing in this westernmost Cuban province.

The physician asked not to be identified for fear of reprisals. "Cuban physicians are required to keep silent and not voice opinions since they live under a perpetual threat of expulsion from their jobs," he said.
