Petaling Jaya: Ampang Puteri Umno chief Haslinda Mohd Zerain, aged 36, died of heart attack at 11.45am yesterday (The Star 25 February 2010).
Why did she have to die so young?
She could have avoided death at such a young age if she practices good eating habits. Heart attack is related to the consumption of high protein, high cholesterol and fat foods.
For those who are active in political activities, the need to choose health food is obvious. Political leaders and members have to attend endless functions which unfortunately serve foods that are mainly acidic in nature.
Choosing fruits at such functions is the most effective way of maintaining good health.
A few years ago, I attended a Chinese New Year celebration organized by the Ministry of Housing and Local Government. Of course, all the nice and tasty foods were served as usual. When the Minister, Dato’ Seri Ong Ka Ting, arrived, he just took some fresh fruits. He told the guests that he just came back from another function which also served good food.
What a wise politician!
