“The National Nutrition Institute is responsible for reviewing, observing and reporting on the distribution of calories and nutrients that should be consumed by the population, with the intention that we have a higher quality of life (…) and in that sense we report very satisfactory indicators”.
He also stressed that the social investment for the international purchase of food is observed by the United Nations (UN).
They also addressed the case of the patients with oncological diseases found in Italy in the framework of an agreement financed by Pdvsa through the Association for Bone Marrow Transplantation, who could not be treated due to the refusal of the international financial system .
