HEALTH NEEDS WEALTH

(I know I know, that’s not how the saying goes, lol)

Hello Krystals! So I was wondering, when last did any of us go for a comprehensive medical checkup just to know how our body is doing? Anyone? I’m equally guilty of this *sigh*

We treat our bodies like a machine that runs day-in day-out forgetting that even machines need oiling and servicing lest they breakdown. We have this culture of waiting till things get extremely bad before we take action or find the most convenient shortcut especially when it comes to health. We notice a consistent headache and brush it off. One may have Typhoid but would never know because he/she keeps thinking it’s just headache and proceeds to swallow paracetamol everyday.

What happened to the phrase ‘a stitch in time saves nine?’ Statistics shows that the greatest cause of mortality in diseased patients is late detection. Besides the case of detection, we have those who live on ‘patchwork’. The people that fall under this category are aware of the prob…

Seat Belts: Behave Yourself & Buckle Up !

The importance of seat belts can never be over emphasized. Personally, I've been in the car many times and asked someone to buckle up, and they always go, "it's not comfortable" or "is it not for drivers ?" or one complaint or the other. Please people, this particular one is near and dear to my heart, as I was involved in a very serious vehicle accident about a year ago, and the seatbelt saved my life, it was very obvious. I mean, I know God was working, but then, He prolly worked through those damn seat belts. When I opened my eyes, the first scratch I noticed on my body was an injury somewhere across my neck to my chest..just a straight line cut. Apparently, the seatbelt injured me in the process of holding me back...now, imagine how much force would be involved for a seat belt to scar someone. Then, you can now think of where I'd have been without the belt.

That's just me and my personal experience but then, issue of seat belts isn't really …

WHEN YOUR MESSY PAST HAUNTS YOUR PRESENT LOVE LIFE

To some people, heartbreaks and been treated wrong is like a normal life pattern. Yea...many are used to being hurt that they tend not to want anything better. Let me explain.

Now let's use this short story to approach the issue at hand:
A certain young lady, quite beautiful, has had her fair share of bad relationships. Like if you can think of the worst scenarios in a relationship, she's probably been through them all. And it was like the cycle kept repeating itself over and over and over again. When each relationship ended, it'd feel like "yet another one bites the dust". Her love life had been one quite sad one, until someone incredible came to break that cycle of pain and distrust. She had never really known true love like that, it overwhelmed her sometimes. Now here's the messy part.....she sometimes ached to be treated the same way she was in previous relationships. Yea, she kept saying the current guy couldn't be that perfect, he had to have some …

The Need For Coca-cola, Pepsi And Big Cola To Include Labels For Burning Off Calories

I will like to take this topic a bit personal because of the alarming rate of type 2 diabetes in Nigeria. Although it may not look too cool for some organization but on the other hand, health of vulnerable Nigerians must be highly considered. Today I would be focusing on soft drinks/beverages and fizzle drinks.

No doubt, the scorching heat in Nigeria today will definitely make you very thirsty and desire to take a refreshing drink (soft drink), in order to regain your energy or to refresh your tastiness. You can even dare to take two bottles of soft drink (50cl X2).
Individuals have different drinking habits, some folks will always dilute their soft drink with water, some cannot finish a 35cl soda drink while some can go on 100cl soda drink. Based on this fact, every adult should be responsible for their health related issues which resulted out of drinking or eating habits.

The World Health Organization reported that the number of adults with the diseas…

Minister kidnapped ,beaten to death by striking miners

Bolivian deputy Interior Minister Rodolfo Illanes, 56, was killed on Thursday after being taken hostage by workers who had blocked a major highway in Panduro, around 160 km (100 miles) from capital city La Paz. Officials said he died of blows to the head.

According to AP ,the workers were demanding more mining concessions with less stringent environmental rules.
Illanes had traveled to Panduro to negotiate with the miners. His body was found in the early morning by the side of the highway that connects La Paz with the city of Oruro, wrapped in a blanket, said Edwin Blanco, the prosecutor in charge of the investigation.
"The cause of death was basically bleeding in the brain. Ribs were also broken," Blanco told reporters.

Morales said the protests and Illanes' death looked to be part of a "political conspiracy rather than a legitimate social claim" made by the miners.

He said: "He had to be antagonizing my dogs to be pulled under there ... even the police say, because h…
