Healthy living: Experts harp on organic food for longevity, employment

In order to combat avoidable diseases and infections, medical experts have advised Nigerians to focus more on cultivating and eating organic products.

They made the plea Saturday in Abuja during a press conference organised by an international organisation, QEI Concepts/ Lady Green Limited, to sensitise the public on the benefits of cultivating organic products and providing employment opportunities.

Those in attendance were: President Azog Incorporated, New Jersey, USA, Dr Azubuike Ogala, MD/CEO QEI Concepts/ Lady Green Limited, Lady Queen Ikwauzom, General Manager QEI Concepts/ Lady Green Limited, Mr James Oshogwe, Africa Representative QEI Concepts/ Lady Green Limited, Dr King Kinang, development partners, NGOs and more than 100 FCT residents.

Addressing participants at the workshop, MD/CEO QEI Concepts/ Lady Green Limited, Lady Queen Ikwauzom, said that avoiding junks and going back to the lifestyle of our grandparents will go a long way in ensuring that Nigerians live for a long time on earth, as many diseases people suffer today are as a result of the type of food they consume on a daily basis.

She said: “QEI Concept Limited is a leading group of doctors, scientists, entrepreneurs, army personnel and philanthropists, who believe in continuity of advanced immune system, science with innovations in better health research, product formulation/ standards and more. Today, people all over the world are benefiting from

the health information we provide and enjoy the immune system support of QEI

products and services.

“We started 4years ago with free health awareness seminars across the federation and some few west African countries like Ghana, Cameroon, Uganda, Benin and Togo. I remember years ago as a teenager, there was nothing like cancer, diabetes, kidney disease, constant knee pains, autism, suicide, depression, blood pressure, arthritis, ulcer, etc. The infertility rates has increased in men and women. Our country has become a dumping ground for junks, while we have one of the best herbs in the world. We have to turn our backs to how we farm, eat and drink and go back to our grandparents ways of farming and eating.”

Also speaking, President Azog Incorporated  New Jersey, USA, Dr Azubuike Ogala, said the organisation hopes to create employment opportunities for millions of Nigerians and that we have the talent to manufacture medical products to cure the peculiar ailments suffered by citizens.

“Every disease can be traced to deficiency in minerals. You have to look within you for what works for you as a Nigerian. We are talking about using agricultural products to prevent, manage or possibly cure preventable diseases. If we don’t diagnose well, we can’t treat well, so we are developing affordable products that our doctors can use.

“We can create employment opportunities through manufacturing the products. Instead of manufacturing the products abroad and importing them to sell at N15,000 per bottle, we can manufacture them here for as low as N3,000. Most of our doctors are abroad, so we have to figure out a way to make them stay, because we have all we need in Nigeria and Africa.”
