8 Side Effects of Excess Chlorine in Water


Is Chlorine In Drinking Water Safe? In the part of the world where I came from, my country is a developing country with an increase the use of chlorine for water treatments and consumption. Adding chlorine to water is seen as a norm by pure water companies, water industries, and people who use water guard at home for water purification not knowing they are adding more chlorine to the system which may be bad for the systems


As you read on with this post, you will be learning some side effect of chlorine to the health and few reasons why chlorinated water is not really safe for drinking. Adding chlorine to water has many advantages like killing of germs and making the water pure for drinking but you and I also need to learn some of the side effect of adding chlorine to water, so that you learn how to put little quantity to your water for treatments.


What is Chlorine? Chlorine is a very reactive gas which belongs to the halide groups. It is one of the highly reactive elements after Fluorine. Chlorine is highly electronegative and it has high ionizationation energy in the periodic table. It has a bleaching capacity and it kills germs which is one of the primary reasons people use Chlorine for water purification. But does chlorine makes the water safe? .


Some of the side effect or dangers of too much of chlorine in water includes; 


1. Cancer: adding too much of chlorine in water either at home or industrially might be a real danger to the body. It may cause cancer due to the fact that chlorine is very reactive and highly electron-negative which enables it to remove or add other compounds to form toxic substances like Trihalomethane and some chlorinated hydrocarbons which are toxic to the body. Although trichloromethane may be used a s disinfectant in water that helps to kill water germs but it may also lead to the production of free radicals in the body which may later cause cell damage and may trigger the growth of cancer cells which is the major cause of cancer in the body. Even the US Government kicks against using chlorine for water purification because it produces dioxin in the body which is carcinogenic and may lead to cancer.

Liver damage is most associated with excess chlorine in the body. That is the more reason we need to avoid drinking excess chlorinated water and natural fresh water is good.

Plastic rice or fake rice are toxic and its really bad to the health.

That is why am using this medium to pass the information to some of my friends and readers who are illegally recently living in Nigeria to be very careful on the type of rice they eat.

When you cut or break a grain, it will show clearly if the grain is actually real or plastic. Polished natural rice break easily but plastic rice don't break so easily because it contains a polymer product.


2. Grind with mortar; you can also easily recognize or identify fake or plastic rice by taking few quantities of the sample rice, put it in a mortar and grind it. Real polished rice are broken and grind easily with mortal while plastic rice is synthetic and could not be easily be grind into powder.

For instance, someone called me to come and buy raw rice at $50 when I knew the cheapest rice in the market at this time recession in Nigeria is sold for over $100 which seems to be extremely cheap.

I also noticed that people suffer from pains in their knee area due to stress, excessive exercise, too much of walking, working too hard and lifting heavy objects which needs to be avoided as quick as possible. I also noticed that women or ladies do suffer leg pains even more than men or males due to the fact tat their hips are wide which also affect the angle between the femur and patella.


For people whose work is to climb stairs, people who climb on an object or people who are ageing are those who suffer more from knee pains. So, the solution to knee pains or the cure to knee pains includes;


1.  Relax: One of the things I do when I noticed am having knee pains is to quickly give myself some rest. Resting and avoiding too much of hard work helps to relieve the body off stress. This means that a common solution to leg pain or knee pain is to have time to rest. If you have been walking too much and you begin to experience knee pain, I  think you need to stop the exercise for a few period just to figure out what might have gone wrong in the car and also in own body.

7. Don’t sit too much: I noticed that one of the things or conditions that cause knee pains is when we sit too much. Some people sit too much due to the nature of their job like the bankers while some people stand too much like teachers. Sitting or standing too much can cause knee pains but the solution to this is to walk round after sitting for several hours and make sure the kind of chair you are sitting on is very comfortable and upright for you to sit on. And when you close, you can walk few distances before getting a bus or to your destination. This will make you look healthy and the pains will disappear with time. And for people, who stand too much should also find time to sit down, relax and walk round as well. Thanks for reading.

What to do in case of Bacillary Dysentery


A colleague of mine was rushed to the hospital few days ago because he was he was having excessive stools. He claim to have eating from a nearby canteen and after he got back to work, he complained of stomach pain and he was passing out stools seriously. He was diagnosed of bacillary dysentery but he was lucky he didn't die due to the fast medical treatments that were administered to him as fast as possible. 


What is Bacillary Dysentery? This is a disease of the bowels which is caused by germs belonging to shigella group of bacilli. One of the signs of bacillary dysentery is frequent stools usually more than 20 or 50 per day with mucus, blood and pus. It may result to illness and fever and may cause death if no proper treatments or medication is given.

Bacillary Dysentery

Bacillary dysentery is more common in families or among people who live in overcrowded areas with bad sanitation, contaminated water, and bad hygiene. Dysentery is highly contagious and can affect more young people within the shortest period of time if the cause it not identified and eradicated immediately.


Bacillary dysentery is caused by contaminated foods, water, germs, soil or flies that carries germ from human waste unto food or water which the people drink. Initially, i suspected that colleague of mine to have eaten contaminated food or water which was right because he was later tested and confirmed of contacting dysentery through the food he ate last.
Symptoms of Dysentery includes illness, fever, uncontrolled stools, loss of appetite, drowsiness, vomiting, desire to vomit, abdominal pains, dehydration, weakness and death.


10 Things to do during Dysentery;


1. Consult the doctor; one of the things you need to do when a person is noticing some symptoms of dysentery like continuous stools, such person or anyone around should call the doctor as quick as possible. If you are leaving very far from the hospital or your effort in calling the doctor is not working, take the patient to a nearby hospital for immediate medical treatments


2. Diarrhea; I noticed that any treatment given to diarrhea also work very well for conditions or diseases like Bacillary Dysentery. I have some information and treatment guidelines on treating of diarrhea, you can use the search box above to search on this treatment.

3. Saline Drips: One of the best treatments for dysentery is to administer saline drips to the patients. This could only be done by the doctor after conducing test and other examination to be sure you or the patients have contacted dysentery. For diarrhea and dysentery, I believe saline drip is the best treatment that can be administered but only through the doctor’s instruction.

4. Prescription Drugs: Another good treatment for bacillary dysentery is to administer prescription drugs to the patients. This could only be done by the doctor after conducing test and other examination to be sure you or the patients have contacted dysentery. For diarrhea and dysentery, I believe saline drip is the best treatment that can be administered but only through the doctor’s instruction. Do not attempt to buy drugs or practice self medication which might be too risky for your health. 


5. Eat Vitamins: For a case of dysentery, vitamins are also very effective as alternative treatments. You can get Vitamins from fruits, foods, Vitamin supplements and many more. But must be in few quantities because more vitamins especially raw fruits which may also cause stools.


6. Eat Proteins: For a case of Bacillary Dysentery, proteins are also very effective as alternative treatments for this illness. You can get Proteins from egg, fish, milk and many more. But must also be in little quantities because more excessive stools especially beans can cause stools.


7. Adequate Sanitation: The best way to manage, prevent and avoid dysentery is to maintain a clean environment. Ensure all the environments are clean, the water you drink are properly kept or stored, drink clean water, dispose waste or sewage properly and build drainage to remove stagnant water.


8. Antibiotics: A very good treatment for bacillary dysentery either in children or adult is to administer some antibiotics which are recommended by the doctor to the patients. This could only be prescribed by the doctor after conducing test and other examination to be sure you or the victim has actually contacted dysentery. For diarrhea and dysentery, antibiotics are recommended. Do not attempt to buy antibiotics by your drug store or practice self medication with antibiotics.


9. O.R.S: This is also known as Oral Re-hydration solution which contains mixture of salt and sugar in small quantity. It is mostly recommended for infants or children but it must be prescribed by the doctor in the hospital. It helps to replace lost fluid due to excessive stools that might have been experienced during the sickness. Thanks for reading.

Cancer: the causes of cancer has always being a question people ask which they want to know more information about cancer cause but radiologist and cancer expert claim that overexposure to radiations like microwave, infra red, radio wave, ultraviolet rays, sun rays etc are possible cause of any type of cancer. When you eat too much of microwave foods, it may lead to cancer types like stomach cancer, kidney cancer, throat cancer, and other cancer in the body or stomach region. It is more better you don't eat too much of microwave foods but you can freeze or warm your food through the traditional gas or stove method, to avoid the body accumulating too much of radiations.

2. Radiations; another side effect of food that are kept in the micro wave is that it contains radiation in foods especially when they are accumulated over a period of time can cause the growth of cancer cells. The concept begin microwave foods is that it contains a heating source which is attached to a micro wave, when a food is being placed in the microwave, the waves penetrates through the food which starts heating from the inside. If you have a food in the micro wave in your kitchen, place a solid food in it and you will notice that after a while, the food begins to get heated not from the outside but from inside of the food which is a property of a micro radiation which is not too healthy as a food for people.

3. Protein Denaturing; I notice that food items like protein when you keep them for a long time in the microwave denature the protein in it. Protein denature could occur when there is too much heat and radiation entering a protein materials, it disrupt the activities of protein materials, kill the protein substances and it scatter the protein structure and nutrients in the food. So if you are eating protein foods like egg, milk, cheese, wheat, fish, meat etc and you expose this food to microwave excessively, what you fail to know is that the proteins your body is suppose to derived as been denatured and transform to fiber or nothing. So, the body gains nothing in return which is bad.

4. Electric shock; I also named electric shock as one of the side effect of eating microwave food due to my personal experience abut a scene. It happened that I tried to warm a food to eat for lunch but I didn't realize I had water in my hand and the handle of the micro wave oven also had some drops of water. So as I touch the handle to open the micro wave device, I almost got electrocuted that I have to quickly turn of the switch and later, I notice that a rubber insulator that protect the wire had been removed. So you never can tell the condition of the microwave device before using it. So the effect of excessive exposure of food to micro waved devices may be exposing the person to electric shock when not properly handled.

5. Mutation; if you notice that some people may give birth to babies with one hand, 4 legs, tongue gum to mouth, one eye, disabled from birth etc, all these are mutation which can simply be defined as a sudden change in the DNA of a person when exposed to dangerous substance like radiations. Foods that are micro waved do contain micro radiations that can cause mutation. Some people do complain about their babies born as imbeciles but forgetting the fact that radiations have gain access to the fetus during pregnancy which cause disruption of the baby's DNA cells which is also known as mutation. Imagine a pregnant woman who fail to visit the doctor and continue to eat fast foods where most of the foods are micro waved food items, such person may stand a chance of experiencing mutation

In conclusion, the dangers attached to eating too much micro waved foods shouldn't be ignored. Protect yourself from cancer and other radioactive elements by reducing micro waved or avoiding foods containing micro waves. 

What to do in case of Rabies


I am writing this post based on the knowledge and treatment I have in the happening of a disease called rabies (hydrophobia) and what to do in case you see a child bitten by a dog or an adult of matured age and the best way treat it.


Rabies is a serious disease which occurs due to bite of a mad dog. Rabies is caused by a virus which is capable of invading the brain of many mammals including humans. The virus break into the skin, travel speedily to the brain and then to the salivary gland. Rabies can be contacted from person to person and may lead to death.


Rabies is common among wild animals like fox, bat raccoon’s, and wild dog. It can be transmitted from dogs to man. When a dog is unhealthy or discomfort, it get annoyed and bite people around with the virus in the saliva that contains the virus.
Symptoms of rabies; high fever, fever, depression, restlessness, pains, spasm, inability to drink water, and death if left untreated several hours or days.


What to do in case of rabies


1. Consult the doctor; one of the things you need to do in case of dog bite or when anybody get bitten by a dog is to immediately seek medical attention, request for an ambulance or call the doctor. In this type of situation, the medical doctor is in the right position to prescribed medical treatments or drug that can cure the after effect of the rabies virus. The doctor will also test the victim as well as the dog that bit the patient just to be sure he or she is administering the right treatments for rabies.

2. Cleaning wounds
; while you await the doctor treatment or as you take the victim of dog bite to the hospital, you can still maintain the best hygiene and first aid treatment by cleaning the bite area with large amount of water and soap. Just get a bowl of clean water, put some medicated or anti-germicide soaps and clean the surface of the wound gently and with large amount of treated water.


3. Do not suture; if in case of dog bite and you haven't gotten any medical attention, do not try to suture the wound thinking you are rendering some help, just leave the wound open and continue to clean with clean water until the doctor arrives or until you get to the hospital for further treatments. The doctor determines if the wound will need suture or just normal treatments but dog wounds usually don’t need suturing but surface treatments.


4. Anti rabies vaccines: another thing to do in case of rabies is to immediately administered an anti rabies vaccines which can only be given or prescribed by a doctor just to cure and prevent future occurrence of such incident. The anti rabies vaccines is also an antivirus which helps to kill the virus causing the symptoms or change in body system. So, you also do not need to buy anti rabies vaccines but meet with doctor and get more information about it.

5. Anti rabies injection; another thing to do in case of rabies is to immediately administered an anti rabies injection which can only be given by a doctor. The anti rabies injection is an antivirus which helps to kill the virus causing the symptoms or change in body system. So, you don’t need to buy anti rabies injection but only the doctor can give such treatments.


6. Discontinue Anti-rabies Treatment: one of the things to you need to do in case of dog bite is to keep the dog in isolation, invite the animal doctor to perform a test on the dog to ascertain if the dog is actually infected with rabies. If the dog posses the rabies virus in it body, you may continue the anti rabies treatment but when the dog tested negative for rabies, you should immediately discontinue the treatments to keep the victim healthy. Not only that, you must also test the victim of dog bite to be sure if other infection has not set in like tetanus which I know can be cure through strong antibiotics.


7. Herbal Medications: This may not apply to every country but some countries in Africa really have some herbs that can cure rabies infection from dogs. Some also herbal medicines also eject various rabies virus or infection out of the body of the victim. I was in Nigeria sometimes ago when a man treats his boy dog bite with some herbal medications, although I didn’t seem to believe at first but it works perfectly because the boy was healthy. But before administering any herbal treatments for any victim, the dog also should be tested for rabies so as not to treat a patient blindly for wrong medication.


In conclusion, people or children get infected when bitten by a mad dog with rabies. If you are bitten by a dog, just try as much as possible to see the doctor first and get treated but while you wait for the doctor, you can clean wound surface with clean water and soaps, do not suture the wound, get anti rabies injection or anti rabies vaccines by the doctor, do not attempt to keep it silent and so some avoid self medication and discontinue treatments if you realize the dog has been tested and free of rabies.

4. Amala (yam flour) ; this is a popular solid food among the Yoruba tribes of Nigeria which can be eaten with vegetables soup or okra soup. Amala is made from yam flour that is why it is made up of starch which gives energy and contains no fat. If you are Nigerian and you feel like maintaining your weight, or you want to lose weight through diets, I recommend you eat this food because it is very light and it contains low calories.

5. Rice; rice is a grain which contains carbohydrate that gives energy but contains no fat. Rice is mostly eaten not only by Nigerian but by everybody in the world because it contains no fat and it is light with low calories. But when eating in excess especially fried rice, it can make you gain more fat instead losing fat due to the animal fat that was used to cook it.
6. Beans; this is another Nigerian food that is low in fat but it contains high amount of proteins which builds the body and can even enhance body stature or height. It also helps to keep the skin smooth and free of diseases. 

7. Fish meal; Fish meal is high in protein but contains little or no fat depending on the type of fish. But most stock, roasted, smoked or dry fish are free of fat and they contain high amount of zinc which boost fertility in both men and women.
