High Rate Of Death Among Youths, What Is The Cause? by pocohantas(f): 11:35am On Jul 11, 2021
What is responsible for the sudden high rate of death among youths?

How can this be prevented?

I just saw the news on Sound Sultan’s death. Last week Davido’s crew member, Obama, died. Few months back, Ada Jesus died. These ones are the popular ones we know. Look around you and you’ll see young people suffering various ailments that were alien to youths in the past. Kidney failures, liver issues, drug abuse, avoidable motor accidents…etc.

A young able bodied man would sleep and not wake up.

I know Righteousness would say it is a sign of latter days, I think it is more a lifestyle problem.

I also believe it's a life style problem among youths. Many young people are now obsessed with material things, striving so hard to look or appear woke before their peers, which could involve taking hard drugs, excessive alcohol, sex and consumption of junk food.

Gone are the days when moral values were held at high esteem, and people refused to do things that could tarnish their image. Nowadays, nobody cares as long as money or fame are involved.

May God deliver the young people of today, me inclusive, from the snares of the devil that only lead to destruction. Amen.

death is inevitable,
but young people engage in risky behaviors that may cut their lives short

It mostly has to do with what we eat, I was thinking exactly about this same thing this morning and thus concluded that the technology we praise would be the same weapon used to reduce life expectancy worldwide and reduce the population.

I can't even really blame drugs because most of the rock stars who od'ed on drugs lots of times are still alive, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ozzy Osbourne for example.

We should really be careful most especially of what we eat, I have made a pact with myself to — when I happen upon a great fortune — stop using all these Maggi and useless spices flying around, the spice that gives me the chills is that Benny chicken spice. I have also resolved to cut down greatly on junk food and all that nonsense.

Living life on the fast lane. Unhealthy lifestyle. The gym is so scanty these days. Very few men want to keep fit. They run after money at the expense of their health. And later spend the money to have their health back. The air so polluted with toxins, with the proliferation of junk foods at every corner.
Sedentary lifestyles, technologies. Everyone now want it so soft. Healthy muscular fit men are suddenly going extinct angry Damn!!!

Some good points here.. In this context, I think we need to be more careful about what goes into our body & out too, we should really..

Everybody wants to at the very least live life normally, yunno enjoy life without underlying illnesses yhh but most times it's how we go about it that matters.. Countless times, I hear people saying "laslas something must kill a man" to justify their actions.. Not going to dispute anything, all I'm trying to say is this:

If you do not feel well please seek medical attention as soon as you can, I cannot overemphasize this, please try not to make assumptions & resort to selfmedication.. Quite a good number of y'all indulge in buying herbal mixtures, some don't even bother to do their due diligence before drowning themselves in it because it's just natural herbs afterall.. "Dem cook am put na orr pesin tell us for bus sey e dey work well well orrr e get pesin wey dem say if I jus buy one bottle for im hand, e go cure all the yamayama sickness".. Please and please if you do not know how they came about the end product, look the other way cos everybody must sha sell market.. Even better you can make yours from the scratch if you want, do your research about home remedies, various herbs and how to use them..

With our crippling economy here and practically everything going wrong, honestly I know it has not been easy at all & we're barely trying to survive.. It is true that death is inevitable but let us not just take the backseat when it's something that has to do with improving the quality of our individual lives.. Let's try to do away with those things or habits that greatly endangers our health as well as reduces our lifespan, seek help however you can.. Shalom!

The third paragraph was what killed my dad embarassedembarassed. Most especially paracetamol which a lot of people don't know destroys the liver, try and avoid malaria as much as you can and if you get it, don't allow it to turn to yellow fever before you do something about it, I advise doing tests too. If you become wealthy tomorrow rather than waste your earnings on frivolities, go for regular medical tests most especially for cancer, that thing is one of the worst illnesses on earth, you won't know when it starts.

Ohh dear I'm so sorry about your dad.. My dad is late too and yhh the same third paragraph.. He constantly went for checkups at the hospital not regularly though but I never quite understood why he would buy bottles after bottles of herbal mixtures he knew nothing about other than "Mr. A assured me that this will work, Mrs. B said she has used it before, C bought 5bottles for her great great grand father's step-ancestor lol".. We disposed of the bottles but always came back to find more of them, he secretly took shots early in morning & then late at night.. Wahala wey dis thing cause ehn, my papa get stronggg coconut head o, you won't believe that he even went as far as finding a new place to hide 'em bottles just so we won't put them in the bin.. We thought he had stopped sef, it was until his death that we found the new place & some bottles..

Not just paracetamol sef but people keep abusing these drugs, smh their vital organs are in great danger.. Yes yes yes if you feel sick, please do not wait til it's too late, find your way to the nearest hospital, the earlier the better.. Ofcourse it's good to run general body tests once in a while, quite expensive though.. Cancer eh, hardly any symptoms, just very deadly, now as life hard reach I try at the very least to get me going with some foods containing antioxidants.

Ahhhh your papa was a real stubborn man, mine was quite stubborn too. He bought all these useless Chinese drugs from the likes of Siemens and GNLD, if aboki pass with herbal drug and speaker just like that you'll see him negotiating price of the poison, as much as we hated it there was nothing we could do, if we hid it, it would become a messy ordeal, after his death my mom burnt them all at our backyard, I can imagine how angry she was.

I almost lost my mom to ingesting whatever comes her way. Some drugs I've seen with her, since my existence I never knew they existed. All these multi-purpose mixtures that cures virtually all illness are also part of the problem. Maybe NAFDAC and Consumer Protection should start going after them.

Most natural foods, especially plant based, contain antioxidants.

Try going for unprocessed food and drinks. You definitely can't do completely without them but you can greatly reduce your dependence them.

Limit/reduce your use of seasoning, even salt. A doctor once said, if you can taste salt in your food then it's too much.

A good alternative to Maggi is locust beans. You can dry it and grind it to powder form. Some people claim it tastes better than Maggi.


Away from antioxidants and free radicals.

Fish is nutritional than meat. White meat (Snail, Chicken, Turkey...) is more nutritional than red meat (cow meat, goat meat...)

With throat cancer, Sultan was going to die anyway. Only very lucky few escape cancer, even in developed countries. The fact that he had it in the throat, a part that cannot be cut off without Killing him even made it worse.

Yes, reduce salt intake.. Some people even sprinkle some while eating, if you do this please stop it..

Locust beans is also a very good source of vitamin A, very delicious too.. Crayfish is really underrated, y'all unwrapping 3, 4, 5 cubes of Maggi or any bouillon seasonings, try ground crayfish I promise you'll love it..

Yes yes, red meat is bad for the heart.. We should also pay attention to the cooking oil we use, trans fat is bad for our heart as well.
