Fasting: A free alternative to ketogenic diets

I am not against dietary fats and I think we are reaping the whirlwinds of modern chronic diseases largely due to demonization of saturated fats in the last 60 years. In fact, keto diets are great options for weight control and diabetic reversal for those who can afford it. In due course I would do a series of writings on dietary fats and ketogenic diets, but the fact remains that not everyone in developing countries who are struggling with weight and other health issues can regularly afford expensive steak, bacon, organ meat, salmon, tuna, eggs, butter and cream, almonds, avocado, and cheese.

The 21st century African: Challenges, fear and mindsets

State of the nation: May Rwanda not happen in Nigeria

The Challenges are enormous and it requires all hands on deck. The time is also ripe for all and sundry to speak with one voice and stand to be counted. The horizon is not only cloudy but dark and the "cumulus nimbus" is forming like a wild fire in the harmattan season. The drumbeat of war is loud, clear and ominous.

Kingdom of fools

A nation at peace with disability cannot be well. Foolishness has fruits - and consequences. 'Smart' ministers may worm themselves into the living room of power; they may take advantage of foolish kings, but if you exploit the retard to fatten yourself, just know that every benefit you get from the fool is for a while; his next move you cannot tell. The safest thing to do, going forward, is, stay away from fools - do not set them on your throne, do not elect them as your leaders; they lack capacity, they cannot rule; they ruin.

2021: Happy new year

Even as horrible as year 2020 was, we were all together through it, we were able to stay together, something unusual to us. We laughed together, we cried together, and we actually ate at the same table together.
