You are expected to die at 54 years of age.

Well not just you, everyone, every Nigerian.

The life expectancy of a Nigerian is 54 years. You didn't know? A more saddening is the fact that in the world, Nigeria has the fifth-lowest life expectancy!

In case you're unclear about what life expectancy is, it means how long people in a given region live.

Nigeria is the fifth worse among 186 countries in the world. And why is this? What is it about Japan that gives them an edge of 85 years, even with their ridiculously high risk of Natural disasters?
What are the factors that contribute to you having a healthy, fit, and happy life?
I mean, is there an exact thing can you do to obtain a solid assurance of a long and beautiful life?

Well, I'm afraid the answer to that question does not lie here.
I don't know what you can do, but there is one thing I know you should stop doing, that every one of us should stop doing


Stop giving less priority to your health

Don't say you aren't because I can prove you are. I can prove it by accessing how much you know about your health. What do you know about first aid? About the food you eat?
About the amount of damage you cause when you don't wash your hands before eating because you hold faith that bacteria doesn't kill an African man (yet we die more).

Apart from a good economy and access to quality medical care, another thing countries with high life expectancy hold in common is that they are very meticulous about health information and health education. It's not just about their government. Even the people.

Being very knowledgeable about your health and that of those around you is very vital☝�.

You can't change your government, you can't change the country's economy, but you can change your home
when you know how to stop bleeding from your child's wound all by yourself before rushing to the hospital
when you know what to do when a kid around you starts convulsing, or when someone faints in front of you
when you know exactly how to use bitter leaf to reduce fever, the one you eat often.

It is our deepest desire for everyone to be healthy and happy. That's why we have created a health educative platform where you learn what you need to know. Where you ask questions on health issues you can't seem to find an answer to and we will certainly answer

Healthward is a community of strong and healthy Africans, particularly Nigerians, doing the one thing that the majority don't do. Paying real attention to their health. This is new, we're just beginning, but there is so much we can achieve together. There is a lot of ignorance we can lift together.

We really wish you would sign up, register, be a member of the community, interact with others in the platform, and build knowledge.

We're highly expectant because we believe you care!
Let's create something new together.

This was the stand of a judge in a case involving retirees and PFA and Pencom.
With God, we will go beyond the biblical 70 in Jesus name amen.

If someone live up to 54 years in this present Nigeria, he lived a very long life.

Didn't you see the news that Nigeria overtook India in the rate at which under 5years kids die?

This is not a fact. I believe if one adopts a healthy lifestyle and don't get hit by other causes like accidents and the likes, then he can hit even 100.

It's a fact because stats have shown that most people don't care about adopting healthy lifestyle.

No. it can never be a fact. There are still people who do care abt their health and still clock 70 and aboves. What you have up there is just a generalized statement with no basis of fact.

Of course there are. There people that clock 100 to. What I mean is on average. By the time you include the number of people who die at young ages and compile it with those that die old, you find out that the average number lies at 45
