Food! Who on earth does not love food? Nigerians certainly do, not necessarily because the nation is a citadel for grubs but for the reason that the human race essentially needs food to survive.

As a multicultural people, Nigeria has a large vault of cuisines from different tribes and ethnic groups and there are some people who now make a living from their love of cooking.

Our Fore Fathers didn't eat all "these" (junk) food, yet they lived longer than an average Human of this generation.

What's with all these "addition and subtraction" that only adds to health deterioration.
