Veddah Chief Uruvarigelage Vanniyale Ettho said one must be cautious of his dietary habits and be a nature lover to live a healthy life.  He said a recent survey conducted by the western and indigenous medical specialists had found that no-one in the Veddah community suffered from renal diseases or diabetes although many others in the Redeemaliyedda division were victims of such ailments.

He said people of Dambana, Henagigala, Ratugala, Pollabedda Veddah communities were subject to medical examinations and they were not suffering from diabetes, high blood pressure or renal ailments.

“The doctors inquired of me why the people in my community were healthy. I explained to them that we lived with the nature from our childhood and depended on forest resources. “One must be cautious against the evils of dietary habits if one wants to live a healthy life. Many food stuffs sold in the market are detrimental to health. It is better to prevent illnesses than seeking treatment,” He said. (Palitha Ariyawansa)

    what they say is true. Just because a vadda gave a good health advise don't be too smart to say that Sri Lnaka is rolling back! That only shows your narrow mentality. via DM Android App

    Better to appoint his as an adviser to the Ministry of Health or even to a hierarchy in the country.

    the Vedas never went to school and they know more than the civilized people

    Aceman Tuesday, 27 August 2013 08:31 AM

    Why can't they give us advice? Living closer to nature than us, supposedly 'Civilized' people does not make them less intelligent!

    This Govt.should consult the veddah chief on the good governanace and maintenance of rule of law etc before implementation of the recommendations of the LLRC report !

    Siri de Alwis Tuesday, 27 August 2013 08:35 AM

    Do we need Veddahs in 21 century? These people just want to get free benefits from the Govt. They should be taken out of the jungles and civilsed.
