Prof.Agyeman Badu Akosa once a pathologist at the Korle Bu teaching hospital disclosed in the Daily Graphic that, most of the recent deaths occurring in the country could have been avoided if victims had taken good care of themselves. He said most of them are as a result of what we eat. He said, the government and businessmen spend huge sums of money in importing sickness into the country.They import cooking oil which contain fats that can never digest in the human digestive system.
Our human blood has over 75% of it being water, and we know from our basic science that, oil can never dissolve in water so when this oil gets into our blood stream, the particles are suspended.These suspended oil particles pile up to form a plaque which blocks the arteries preventing the inflow and outflow of blood to the heart. This defect results in many of the cardiovascular diseases we know today.
In the early 70s and in the 80s, the only oil found in an average Ghanaian home was palm oil and coconut oil. Cooking oils like frytol was used on occasions. But today, it is taken everyday in our homes yet we still can't identify what is killing us.
*An average Ghanaian eats fruit once in every two months which is very bad. Fruits are to be taken on daily basis.
*An average Ghanaian drinks water only when he is thirsty but we must drink water even when we are not thirsty throughout the day even if it is sipping water at regular intervals.
*An average Ghanaian do not exercise but eats everyday.
*An average Ghanaian take drugs to cure diseases which was acquired through a reckless lifestyle. Drugs cannot cure those diseases, only a change in lifestyle can cure those diseases.
We format our phones and computers when malwares like viruses invade them but do we think about what we take into our bodies? Most of them are more than viruses.
Do we take time to overhaul our bodies.
