Interesting Fact

The hospitals of Maasai or nearby city hospitals remain empty of its inhabitants because of very low-level of diseases in them. In 1935 Weston A. Price reported that nearby tribe were disease-free. That is because of their simple and natural diet. A study in 1991 showed that the inhabitants consume average 1 liter of milk.
