Hepatitis B is a silent killer. Go check yourself.


Hepatitis B is a silent killer! It's killed quite a number of people this year. And the scary part is it has no early symptoms until its full stage. Then the liver is inflamed and the condition is almost untreatable. It can be transferred through sebacious glands like spit, sweat, sharing cutlery and cups.The immunisation is available at hospitals in 3 doses-one each month. 1st one should test to find out if you have it so that treatment will begin but if you don't, you'll start the immunisation.

Be aware!

One Million Living With HIV/AIDS In Lagos

Dr Jide Idris (centre) addressing the press at the State Secretariat, Alausa yesterday
No fewer than one million people are currently living with HIV and AIDS in Lagos State, that is according to Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Dr Jide Idris, who made this known yesterday at the 2010 celebration of World AIDS Day

If one million people have AIDS in a State with a population of 18 million, this simply suggests that one out of every eighteen resident of Lagos is infected with the killer disease?

Sorry I'm not buying that!

"Like your man, but don't love him" Christy Essien Igbokwe

"I will say to them that it is a woman that can keep her home because no man is perfect. But the secret is this, don’t love your man o, but like him very much so that you can tolerate and accommodate his naughtiness and for the children’s sake. Don’t love in order not to be disappointed. Love deals with the heart but liking with the head. Above all, God’s divine hand is essential." Legendary singer, Christy Essien Igbokwe said when asked to advise young women looking to get married.

She's been married for 29 years, so I'm sure she knows what she's talking about. Only I can't marry a man I like very much...I have to love him toh bad! :-)

Is this sound advice really? Don't love your man so you don't get disappointed?

Dead Alicia Keys Tweets from the other side...

Alicia Keys, who vowed to stay off Twitter and Facebook until fans contributed $1 million to her 'Keep a Child Alive' AIDS charity, broke her ban barely 24 hours in to remind her followers that she was dead and to send money.

To convince your fans to donate, you need to constantly talk to them about it. So being 'dead', staying off social networking sites and being incommunicado will probably not help much...
