A carcinogen is something that can cause you to have cancer. It may be a substance in the air, a product you use, or a chemical in foods and drinks.

Clinical Nutritionist Stella Kimani was on Classic 105, where she discussed matters Cancer.

‘When we’re getting cancer and other diseases, why? I mean we brought ourselves here, The farmer could be feeding you carcinogens. We are seeing alot of weed, herbicides, that have been banned on other countries coming into Kenya.

So before you’re food even gets into your plate the farmer has already started the process of killing you and then the person selling that probably was grown on sewage decides to apply on apples some sort of stuff to make them look shiny so that they look fresh to you, the grapes as well, so the entire food chain is problematic’

  1. Tobacco
  2. Crispy brown foods – When some vegetables, like potatoes, are heated to high temps, they give off a chemical called acrylamide.
  3. Formaldehyde – From plywood to some fabrics, this chemical is used in many household products. Studies on lab rats and people who are around formaldehyde at their jobs show it can cause cancer.
  4. Ultraviolet Rays – Studies show that ultraviolet (UV) rays, whether from the sun or a tanning bed, get absorbed into your skin and damage the cells there. Most skin cancer cases are due to UV rays.
  5. Alcohol

‘All is well’ Governor Nanok assures after mild stroke scare

Turkana Governor Josphat Nanok has given an assurance that he is well and recuperating at home.

The governor insisted he was doing fine and was not in the hospital as earlier indicated.

He, however, did not disclose what he was ailing from despite having told his colleagues that he had been unwell.

A message seen by the Star states.

Other sources told the Star that Nanok had complained of abdominal pain and facial weakness before going to the hospital.

josephnanok

“An endoscopy was done and an MRI scan. He was immediately put on physiotherapy as it was suspected to be a mild stroke on the left side of his face,” the source told the Star.

The governor’s communication team did not deny or confirm the reports.

One of his communication directors said he was not aware of the incident, but said he would make inquiries and get back.

However, several attempts to get a confirmation from him thereafter were futile as several calls and text messages went unanswered.

Another source said Nanok’s team had not been notified about what was ailing the governor.

Eating AFRICAN ants, grasshoppers and silkworms could protect against CANCER

 
– Scientists at the University of Rome made drinks out of ground up insects

– They tested them for health-giving antioxidants such as vitamins A, C and E

– Some types had five times as many antioxidants as orange juice

– These can prevent DNA damage which may lead to cancerous tumours forming

Eating ants and other bugs could protect people from developing cancer, according to scientists.

Although not an appetising ingredient of a salad or smoothie, the creepy crawlies may be worth stomaching for their health benefits alone.

Research found some types contain more antioxidants than orange juice in a study which saw them ground down to be mixed into a drink.

Antioxidants, such as vitamins, reduce the development of potentially-dangerous free radicals in the body, the scientists said, protecting against DNA damage.

One researcher said nearly a quarter of people in the world already eat bugs and the rest might do well to overcome their squeamishness and follow suit.

Scientists at the University of Rome ground down various insects including ants, grasshoppers, crickets and silkworm.

They then tested the powder to work out how many antioxidants – compounds such as vitamins A, C and E and beta-carotene – were in them.

Only the soluble parts of the insects were used – their wings and stingers were taken off first – with the view of them being consumed as a drink.

The tests revealed silkworm, African caterpillars and giant cicadas had twice as many antioxidants as olive oil.

And powdered cricket, grasshopper and silkworm had five times as many antioxidants as notoriously nutritious orange juice.

‘Edible insects are an excellent source of protein, polyunsaturated fatty acids, minerals, vitamins and fibre,’ scientist Professor Mauro Serafini said.

Why you should not put raw onion in your salad according to this expert

 

– Sarah Vine an expert argues raw onions hidden in salads ruin lunch

– She says no one likes the vegetable as it’s smelly and indigestible

– She discussed the food industry’s efforts to spice up modern salads

Why does it seem like every salad offered in Kenya has raw onions in it?

But there is one ingredient I just cannot stomach: raw onions. Hands up who likes raw onion? No one? Thank you. That’s because it’s smelly, indigestible and extremely anti-social.

salad

What kind of maniac wants to spend the rest of the afternoon sitting at his or her desk, burping up the vegetable equivalent of hot lava and causing colleagues to pass out every time you open your mouth?

Smelly. Indigestible. And extremely anti-social. Lunch is doomed 

And yet they all do it. Hide the raw onion, that is. every sandwich, salad bars and chips place or, the local sandwich shop: it’s like some perverse little game.

There you are, about to tuck into your nice saintly salad, when the faintest whiff of it reaches your nostrils. Lurking beneath the lettuce, cowering next to the cucumber — raw bloody onion!

Of course, then the whole thing is ruined. Raw onion contaminates everything within a five-inch radius, meaning that even if you do painstakingly pick it out, piece by festering piece, everything else will still taste of it.

People who work long hours are more likely to suffer a stroke

People who work long hours are significantly more likely to suffer a stroke, research suggests.

A study found employees who juggle a demanding 10 hour work schedule every day for at least a decade are 45 per cent more likely to develop the life-threatening condition.

And, in a result that baffled the French researchers, the under 50s were more at risk than their older colleagues.

The research was carried out by Paris Hospital, Versailles, and led by Professor Alexis Descatha, of the occupational health unit.

Britons have been found to have the longest working days of anywhere in Europe.

Irregular shifts, night work and the strain of a high-pressure job have all been blamed for poor health among employees.

work.stress

To uncover how the working day may affect the risk of stroke, the researchers started analysing the hours of 143,592 French workers in 2012.

Of these volunteers, 42,542 (29 per cent) reported having long hours, which was defined as working more than 10 hours at a time for at least 50 days a year.

Around one in ten of the study’s hard grafters claimed they had worked these hours for at least a decade.

Over the next seven years, 1,224 of the volunteers suffered a stroke.

Results – published in the journal Stroke – revealed those who reported working long hours had a 29 per cent greater risk of the life-threatening condition.

And the odds rose to 45 per cent for the 14,481 (10 per cent) who had done this for a decade or more.

This remained true even after the researchers adjusted for any other heart-related risk factors or previous strokes.

Surprisingly, the participants, who were aged between 18 and 69, were more at risk if they were younger.

‘The association between 10 years of long-work hours and stroke seemed stronger for people under the age of 50,’ Professor Descatha said.

‘This was unexpected. Further research is needed to explore this finding.’

The scientists particularly worry about the wellbeing of healthcare workers, who are typically forced to endure long shifts.

‘I would also emphasise many healthcare providers work much more than the definition of long working hours and may also be at higher risk of stroke,’ Professor Descatha said.

‘As a clinician, I will advise my patients to work more efficiently and plan to follow my own advice.’

Business owners, CEOs, farmers, professionals and managers have previously been found to suffer the effects of a long-working day.

Lack of sleep linked to mental health problems like depression

However, the French researchers argue these employees may have more control over their hours.

The researchers did not speculate as to why people who work long shifts are more likely to suffer a stroke.

But sitting down for too long – a problem rife among office workers – can lead to obesity and raise blood pressure, which the NHS warns can raise the risk of strokes.

Other studies have also suggested a similar danger for those who work long hours.

A two-year study of more than 85,500 British and Scandinavian employees found those who worked at least 55 hours a week were 40 per cent more likely to develop atrial fibrillation over the next decade than those who put in the ‘normal’ 35-to-40.

Atrial fibrillation is defined as an abnormally fast, irregular heart rate. The condition affects around one million people in the UK, and can lead to stroke, heart failure or even dementia.

A 2015 international study of more than 600,000 people found the risk of developing stroke increased by a third in those who worked more than 55 hours a week compared to those who stuck to the traditional ‘9-to-5’ day.

And their odds of developing heart disease rose 13 per cent.

Study: Wearing shoes indoors could be good for your health

Is asking your guests to take their shoes off house-proud or a social horror? As a study says wearing dirty shoes indoors can be good for our health, six writers put the boot in

The first words I heard whenever I walked into my grandmother’s or mother’s home were ‘Shoes Off!’ And that was simply on opening the front door.

They had to be taken off on the mat in the entrance before I actually stepped indoors, then left on a rack in the hall designed for the purpose. Of course, I didn’t obey their every instruction, but this one made perfect sense, even to a little girl.

Why would anybody want to bring into a lovely clean house the dust and dirt of a mining town like Barnsley?

Harambee Stars defender Joash Onyango lights up the internet with new look

Every building was coated black. Coal muck was everywhere. Everybody had dogs and the idea of clearing up whatever your mutt might have deposited on the pavement was unthinkable. You never knew what you might have stepped in.

Of course, this was the Fifties and Sixties, when the average working class woman’s job was caring for her home and family.

The carpets and furniture, for which their husbands had worked extremely hard to afford, were precious and it was the women’s job to ensure everything was immaculate when the men came home to relax.

flat shoes

The idea of a cleaning lady was horrific. ‘We’re not the sort to have servants, we couldn’t afford it anyway,’ they would sniff. ‘And why would you expect another woman to clear up after you, doing your dirty work?’

While I can’t say I picked up all of their obsessions and kept them for the rest of my life — their talent for pastry and Yorkshire puddings eludes me — the hatred of shoes in the house has never left me.

Family tend to get the same terse ‘Shoes off!’ that I had as a child, but everyone else gets a rather more polite, ‘Would you mind taking off your shoes?’ No one — friend, acquaintance or the man who’s come to fix the boiler — would dream of saying ‘No’.

I didn’t quite inherit the house-proud gene to the point of neurosis, and my days, as a woman who’s always gone out to work, are not spent scrubbing.

Congratulations! Gospel musician Mercy Masika bags a new appointment

I don’t have my mother’s disdain for women who employ another woman to do their dirty work.

I do employ a cleaner, but he’s a man and he comes in for three hours once a week to do what my grandmother would call ‘a bottoming’.

He cleans thoroughly and tidies up, but I do everything I can to keep things as clean as possible on the surface. Hence the no shoes rule. I have pale carpets in the hallway and up the stairs. They show the slightest speck and I have neither the time nor the energy to be hoovering after every single visit.

On the ground floor, there’s a wooden floor, covered with my pride and joy — beautiful, colourful antique woven rugs.

They were professionally cleaned before they were put down and go through the same process every two years.

There is no such thing as a shoe with a clean bottom. Off with them!
