Big Brother Naija star, Uriel Oputa, has expressed concern due to the rate of people dying prematurely and falling sick.
According to the chef, strokes, cardiac problems, and other illnesses are caused by unhealthy behaviors like insufficient sleep, insufficient exercise, insufficient hydration, and intake of starchy and fatty foods.
Taking to her Instagram page, she advised Nigerians to embrace a healthier lifestyle and visit their doctors regularly.
“People are just dropping dead/falling sick. Pls take care of your health I don’t know how else to preach what I’ve been preaching for years!!! Health is everything, sleep is important, food is key!! Stress less, pls pls check-up is a must. I check on a regular.
I recently checked and saw my body needed more calcium. How would I have known!!
do you know your status?? i honestly get sick when I see people post soups with plenty oil and fatty meat.. (evidence of good living) they say!!! I see high cholesterol, stroke, heart issues. Nigerians don’t even drink water.
Do you even know the required daily amount of water??? And you live in a hot climate
We need to start checking ourselves. I know there’s a lot of stigma attached to some illness but, it’s better to know. this our generation na only starchy food we know.
I know a lot of people have gotten signs from their body!! Pls make that change eat right
Exercise, visit your doctor.”
