xx The Compulsory Treatment and Care for Victims of Gunshot Act 2017
January 07, 2018, 04:26:17 AM by naijatowns
The Compulsory Treatment and Care for Victims of Gunshot Act 2017 was enacted some days back precisely on the 29th of December. It provides for compulsory treatment and care for gunshot victims. The Act stipulates that persons with gunshot wounds are to be received for immediate and adequate treatment by any hospital in Nigeria with or without initial monetary deposit and also without a police report.

It shall be the duty of any hospital that receives or accepts any person with a gunshot wound to report the fact to the nearest police station within two (2) hours of commencement of treatment. And upon receipt of the aforesaid report, the police shall immediately commence investigation with a view to determining the circumstances under which the person was shot.The police may not receive any person with gunshot wounds from the hospital for the purposes of investigation unless and until the Chief Medical Director of the hospital certifies him fit and no longer in dire need of Medicare.

It is also our duty under this Act to render every possible assistance to any person with gunshot wounds and ensure that the person is taken to the nearest hospital for immediate treatment. There is no need for the usual scare of police intimidation and maybe subsequent arrest as the law also states that every volunteer or helper of a victim shall be treated with respect and shall not be subjected to unnecessary and embarrassing interrogation in their genuine attempt to save life.

Any person who is guilty of an offence under this Act especially, when the offence does not lead to death of victim but led to substantial physical, mental, emotional and psychological damage, shall be liable on conviction to imprisonment for a term of not more than 15 years and not less than 5 years without the option of fine.

 It is also the duty of the hospital that receives any person with gunshot wounds to notify the family members or relations of the victim as far as they may ascertain within twenty_four hours of becoming aware of the victim’s identity.

 Any person or authority including any police officer or other security agents or hospital who stands by or omits to do his bit which results in the unnecessary death of any person with bullet wounds commits an offence and shall on conviction be liable to 5 years imprisonment a fine of x50,000.00 or both.

In addition to any other penalty under this Act, the High Court shall order a person or corporate body convicted of an offence, to make restitution to the victim by directing that person or corporate body to pay
to the victim( s), an amount equivalent to the loss sustained by the victim(s).

An order of restitution may be enforced by the victim or by the prosecutor on behalf of the victim in the same manner as a judgment in a civil action.

Medical practitioners pls take note to avoid court case and probably loosing money and ending up in jail. Prevention is better than Cure.

xx THE ONLY SOLUTION AT MIDDLE AGE, IS A LIFE STYLE CHANGE.
December 31, 2017, 06:11:41 AM by naijatowns
THE ONLY SOLUTION AT MIDDLE AGE, IS A LIFE STYLE CHANGE.

As we grow older, say from 40 years up to 65. There is nothing better than a total life style change to preserve us and keep us healthy.

After 40 if a person still wants to keep living like a child, he or she might not make it passed middle age. If however such individuals make it, while living like children, then they might suffer a lot of health problems as they age.

One of the first things someone over forty years should consider, will be a life of moderation.

Drink moderately, eat healthy and wisely, sleep enough and don't deprive yourself of sleep because of partying, hanging out and all such youthful desires and occupations.

Regular exercises should not be missed. Because at the age of forty and above the vital organs of a human being will need some aiding to function properly through exercising.

Any man or woman who after 40 still consumes alcohol like a little boy or girl and indulge freely in all the things he or she did at age 20, or say 25, does not understand that the body is no more the same as it used to be.

Many deaths, stroke, erectile dysfunction issues, heart problems, etc, that occur amongst middle age people today, can be avoided if people of this age group will just embark on a life style change.

I have seen friends, neighbours and relatives who like me are middle agers  but suffer like old men, die untimely, play with so much Viagra because of erectile problem. This ought not to be, life style change is the answer.

At middle age a lot of changes takes place in us, living us not as strong as we use to be before, therefore we can't put unnecessary pressures that only youthful bodies can take, on our aging bodies.

Eating time should be reduced to 7pm, because anything after 8pm is poison to the system of a middle aged person. Red meat should be substituted with white meat. Sugar, iced cold water, lots of salt, should be avoided. Load up on high-fiber fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Your whole digestive system does slow as you age, so fiber is very important. Consume fiber-rich foods such as whole grains, fruit, and vegetables. They will help you feel more energetic and give you fuel to keep going.

Regular check up on our blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, breast, prostrate and so on will be very helpful.
Bless you all fellow middle agers, we have gotten to that stage when we don't think of every other person and leave ourselves unattended to, think of yourself more now, you need you to stay well.

After the age of 50  one may experience many types of illnesses. But the one I am most worried about is Alzheimer's. Not only would I not be able to look after myself, but it would cause a lot of inconvenience to family members.
One day, my son came home and told me that a doctor friend has taught him an exercise using the tongue. The tongue exercise is effective to reduce the onset of Alzheimer's and is also useful to reduce/improve
*1* Body weight
*2* Hypertension
*3* Blood-Clot in Brain
*4* Asthma
*5* Far-sightedness
*6* Ear buzzing
*7* Throat infection
*8* Shoulder / Neck infection
*9* Insomnia
The moves  are very simple and easy to learn. Each morning, when you wash your face, in front of a mirror, do the exercise as below:
*stretch out your tongue and move it to the right then to the left for 10 times*
Since I started exercising my tongue daily,  there was improvement in my Brain Retention.
My mind was clear and fresh and there were other improvements too.
   1 Far sightedness
        lesser
   2  No giddiness
   3. Improved wellness
   4. Better digestion
   5. Lesser flu / cold
I am stronger and more agile.
The tongue exercise helps to control and prevent Alzheimer's disease. Medical research has found that the tongue has connection with the BIG Brain. When our body becomes old and weak, the first sign to appear is that our tongue becomes stiff and often we tend to bite ourselves.
Frequently exercising your tongue  will stimulate the brain, help to reduce our thoughts from shrinking and thus achieve a healthier body. Senior Citizens.

xx Do Drug Expiration Date Mean Anything?*

Do Drug Expiration Date Mean Anything?*

FDA study gets to the heart of medicine expiration and safety

Updated: August 13, 2017

Published: November, 2003

With a splitting headache, you reach into your medicine cabinet for some aspirin only to find the stamped expiration date on the medicine bottle is more than a year out of date. So, does medicine expire? Do you take it or don't you? If you decide to take the aspirin, will it be a fatal mistake or will you simply continue to suffer from the headache?

This is a dilemma many people face in some way or another. A column published in Psychopharmacology Today offers some advice.

It turns out that the expiration date on a drug does stand for something, but probably not what you think it does. Since a law was passed in 1979, drug manufacturers are required to stamp an expiration date on their products. This is the date at which the manufacturer can still guarantee the full potency and safety of the drug.

Most of what is known about drug expiration dates comes from a study conducted by the Food and Drug Administration at the request of the military. With a large and expensive stockpile of drugs, the military faced tossing out and replacing its drugs every few years. What they found from the study is 90% of more than 100 drugs, both prescription and over-the-counter, were perfectly good to use even 15 years after the expiration date.

xx DO NOT BUY MEAT THAT DOES NOT ATTRACT FLIES
December 14, 2017, 02:27:10 AM by abejoye

DO NOT BUY MEAT THAT DOES NOT ATTRACT FLIES

People are using *vamalin,* the chemical used to preserve dead bodies in preserving meat, as they keep flies away. When I asked a pharmacist Capt. Kenneth, member of UPDF, said it's possible.

This is a national public health issue. After my friend's wife lost a baby through miscarriage, an investigations showed the presence of vamalin in her blood. When consumed, vamalin goes to the liver and destroys it.

Please, people of God this is serious. When u go to buy meat, go to a butcher that has flies around. Use this as the only way to confirm that there is no vamalin present. If the meat is without flies, what is keeping them away is vamalin. Be informed

*share this info please, to save a life.

I’m childless because I aborted several pregnancies while dating –Wife

A hotelier, Oluwafemi Ajadi, on Monday asked an Agege Customary Court in Lagos to dissolve his 16-year marriage to his wife, Chinwe, over infidelity and alleged threat to life.

But Chinwe, 35, amid tears, urged the court not to grant the petitioner’s application on the grounds that she had aborted several pregnancies for him before their union was legalised.

The petitioner, a native of Ibadan in Oyo State, told the court that he was no longer interested in the marriage.

USA Scientists find cure for leukemia


A Group of American scientists have found a new possibility to cure leukemia, the results of a new study showed on Tuesday.

Leukemia is a deadly disease that knocks down patients as young as only seven years old.

In the study published in Journal Nature Medicine, the group of scientists from Stanford University and National Institute of Health found that a molecule, called “CD22”, could serve as a potent target for the killer cells of acute lymphoblastic leukemia, a common childhood cancer.

It came after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved last August a cell-based gene therapy, namely the “CAR T-cell” treatment.

The CAR T-cell is a  therapy requires drawing blood from patients and separating out the T cells.

It works by genetically modifying a patient’s own immune cells to seek out and attack leukemia cells that have a molecule called “CD19” on their surface
xx Bottled water in your car is very dangerous especially for women
November 20, 2017, 12:26:33 PM by Isaac Adeniran
A friend of ours became very sick after drinking water left in a car overnight and she was ill for a couple of months.

No matter how many times you get this E-mail, please send it on!!!!

Bottled water in your car is very dangerous!

On the Ellen show, Sheryl Crow said that this is what caused her breast cancer.  It has been identified as the most common cause of the high levels of dioxin in breast cancer tissue..

Sheryl Crow's oncologist told her: women should not drink bottled water that has been left in a car.  The heat reacts with the chemicals in the plastic of the bottle which releases dioxin into the water. Dioxin is a toxin increasingly found in breast cancer tissue.

So please be careful and do not drink bottled water that has been left in a car.

Pass this on to all the women in your life. This information is the kind we need to know that just might save us!

Use a stainless steel canteen or a glass bottle instead of plastic!

LET EVERYONE KNOW PLEASE!

This information is also being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center ...
No plastic containers in microwaves.
No plastic water bottles in freezers.
No plastic wrap in microwaves.

Dioxin chemical causes cancer, especially breast cancer.

Dioxins are highly poisonous to cells in our bodies.

Don't freeze plastic bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic.

Recently the Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital , was on a TV program to explain this health hazard.

He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us. He said that we should not be heating food in the microwave using plastic containers......

This especially applies to foods that contain fat.

He said that the combination of fat, high heat and plastic releases dioxin into the food.

Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food... You get the same result, but without the dioxin..

So, such things as TV dinners, instant soups, etc., should be removed from their containers and heated in something else.

Paper isn't bad but you don't know what is in the paper. It's safer to use tempered glass, such as Pyrex, etc.

He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the styrene foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons....

Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Cling film, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave.
As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food..

Cover food with a paper towel instead.

This is an article that should be sent to anyone important in your life.

Very very very important

According to him, over 100 doctors resigned from the University College Hospital, Ibadan, in 2017 while about 800 doctors resigned from Lagos State hospitals in the last two years.

Odusote described the situation as worrisome.

“The health crisis in Nigeria is unprecedented as the mass exodus hits an alarming proportion.

“Already, it takes a new patient two to three hours to see a doctor.

“Over 100 doctors have resigned from the University College Hospital, Ibadan, this year; about 800 doctors resigned from Lagos State hospitals in the last two years, and over 50 in November alone.
