Stop eating suya,kilisi,Isi Ewu as they lead to premature deaths -Minister of Health warns Nigerians


Nigerian Minister of health, Prof Isaac Adewole  has revealed Suya, Isi- ewu, Kilisi and others are some of the biggest contributors to early deaths in Nigeria. 
  
He stated this while delivering a keynote address at the First Annual Black Tie Gala event organised by the Tristate Heart Foundation (THF). The minister  said that the unhealthy diet of Nigerians often lead to hypertension, which is the leading cardiovascular disease in Nigeria, resulting to stroke.
Adewole, noted that 1 in every 5 Nigerians is hypertensive and at risk of premature death.He said
"Sadly, there is widespread low consumption of proteins, fruits and vegetables and increasing patronage of fast food outlets by the population,"
"There is also large promotion of sweetened products such as carbonated drinks, pastries, candies and other refined sugars, while excessive intake of salt is promoted by food additives such as monosodium glutamate common in delicacies such as suya, kilisi, isi-ewu, ngwo-ngwo, among others."
According to Daily Trust, he therefore advised Nigerians to stop eating these food items, in particular, Suya, Isi-Ewu, Ngo Ngwo, Kilishi, among others.
