Do Not Eat Roasted Plantain And Suya Because They Can Cause Cancer – SOGHIN Warns Nigerians

Image
Health News: Nigerians have been advised to go for periodic medical screening, especially for colon cancer, which is said to be a massive burden on the country, as it is common among people above 40.
The President, Society for Gastroenterology and Hepatology in Nigeria President, Professor Musa Borodo, gave this warning at a press briefing commemorating the 10th Scientific Conference and Annual General Meeting of the association in Ado Ekiti.
Borodo warned that diseases such as colorectal cancer, liver cancer, helicobacter pyloris and other infections that occur in the gastrointestinal tract, are usually not easy to detect when looking out for signs and symptoms.
And when the symptoms are obvious they are often too late to treat. According to him, about 10 percent of people in Nigeria are suffering from Hepatitis B – a viral infection – which he warned could lead to cancer, if not properly treated.
“This (Hepatitis B) is something that can be prevented, if you don’t treat it, it could bec…

Job Recruitment Process: My Most Recent Personal Experience With Oral Interviews

Image
Experience is the best teacher! I am going to be sharing a job recruitment process experience I had couple weeks ago. Like me, if you are a university graduate with a good qualification, and want to gain employment in top private and government companies and organizations, you can relate.
Who needs to read this? I think everybody should. Maybe you are still studying in school to gain B.Sc. or post-graduate qualifications, then you would certainly need to apply for a job at a point in time – except you are Dangote or Otedola’s son or daughter- you certainly need to read this to the end.
So, I had this wonderful job interview experience at this top Nigerian commercial bank and only going to share because I got a feedback. Though the feedback didn’t come directly, it came from a ‘connect’ who I got to meet later, who then had to do the background running and came back with the feedback.

Experience is the best teacher!
I have various job recruitment processes experiences over the years, fr…

HIV: Vaginal Ring For HIV Prevention To Be Tested In Africa After Trials In America

Image
Health News: According to a study that was presented at the 9th International AIDS Society conference in Paris, it reveals that after recording success amongst teenage girls in the US, plans are in progress to test a vaginal ring that prevents HIV infection, in Africa.
The ring is reported to contain an antiretroviral drug called dapivirine and is used for a month at a time.
Dapivirine inhibits HIV’s reverse transcriptase enzyme, a protein vital to HIV’s ability to replicate and cause an infection.
Each intravaginal ring contains one or more microbicides that are intended to be delivered into the vaginal compartment at a high concentration and to be directly absorbed by the cells and tissues.

Child Treated For HIV At Birth Remains Virus-Free Years After Final Treatment – Washington Post

Image
Health News: According to Washington Post, a South African boy, who is believed to have been infected with HIV around the time of his birth, has remained free of the virus for 8 years and 6 months after early treatment — renewing hope among scientists that such outliers may hold clues to help end the decades-old epidemic.
The case study, described by researchers before a presentation on Monday at an international AIDS conference in Paris, suggests a paradigm shift in the treatment of those infected. It establishes that HIV may be controllable in some way other than a daily and lifelong regimen of antiretroviral drugs.
“This is really the first step toward HIV remission and a cure,” said Deborah Persaud, a virologist at Johns Hopkins Children’s Center in Baltimore. “Understanding the factors that came into play to lead to this outcome is really going to inform science.” Read also: PEP – The Cure For HIV
