Health experts have advised Nigerians to watch what they eat, reduce salt intake and constantly monitor their blood pressure (BP) in order to keep hypertension at bay. The counsel was against the World Hypertension Day which is being celebrated across the world on Wednesday, May 17.
‎In a telephone conversation with PREMIUM TIMES on Wednesday, Ogah Okechukwu, a consultant cardiologist at the University College Teaching Hospital, UCH, Ibadan, said it was necessary to emphasise the importance of the day to Nigerians.

Yesterday, February 4, was World Cancer Day, a day set aside by the United Nations and World Health Organisation to raise awareness on cancer and encourage prevention, detection, and treatment. The day is part of the big war against global cancer epidemic. Just as cancer affects everyone in different ways, people have the power to take action to reduce the impact on individuals, families and communities. This is why the day, this year, took place under the theme: “We can. I can”. Sunday Vanguard looks at the pains cancer patients go through in the quest for treatment and how to stop the disease before it stops anyone.
