Veja 1935: "Get rid of fatty belly". Tips on how to keep slim.

Veja published also an article about the situation in Venezuela.
According to Veja, President of Venezuela Hugo Chavez is using populism (talking directly to people, instead of using the chanels of a Representative Democracy) and the power of petro dollars (when Chavez took office, petrol was at $ 10 the barrel, and now is at $ 50) to destroy the Democracy.
The most impressive affirmation is that there is a CD Rom going around with the votes of ALL citizens in past elections (Chavez used the Intelligence Agency and a faulty electronic voting ballot to obtain the info); Chavez uses the CD Rom to benefit allies and harm rivals. In protest, the opposition decided to withdraw from the recent elections which happened two weeks ago; as a result, Chavez, who already controlled the Judiciary and the Public Prosecution, now controls 100% of the Congress in Venezuela.
