A Big Brother Naija Star, Uriel Oputa has raised the alarm over the way people recently fall ill and die. The young lady who participated in the BBNaija show in 2017 while dishing out her two cents on the issue stated that people are dying due to unhealthy lifestyles.
According to the entrepreneur, unhealthy habits such as inadequate sleep, lack of exercise, not drinking enough water, and consumption of starchy, among other factors contribute to stroke, heart-related issues, and other diseases.
The reality TV star turned chef further noted that people ought to always endeavour to periodically go to the hospital for an extensive medical check-up in order to know their health condition.
Taking to her verified Instagram page she posted on her stories, she wrote, “People are just dropping dead, falling sick. I please take care of your health. I don’t know how else to preach what I’ve been preaching for years!!! Health is everything. Sleep is important. Food is key!!! Stress less. Please, please check-up is a must.”

The chef further revealed that through regular medical check-ups, she realised that she needed more calcium in her body.
Uriel said, “I do check-ups on a regular basis. I recently checked and saw my body needed more calcium. How would I have known? Do you know your status?? Honestly, I get sick when I see people post soups with plenty of oil and fatty meat… (evidence of good living they say).
“I see high cholesterol, stroke, heart issues. Nigerians don’t even drink water. Do you even know the required daily amount of water? We need to start checking ourselves. I know there is a lot of stigmas attached to some illnesses but it is better to know. This our generation na only starchy food we know. I know a lot of people have gotten signs from their body!!! Please make that change. Eat right. Exercise. Visit your doctor.” (sic)
