'Getting Old does not scare me' - Florence Ita-Giwa
Florence Ita-Giwa shares her secret to still looking young at over sixty years old. Maybe you can learn a thing or two from her. She spoke to Abiola Aloba of Encomium magazine.
"My frame of mind helps me stay young. Don't write yourself off because of age. I want to encourage the upcoming younger ones to look forward to old age, not to be scared of age. What is age? So far as you are alive, you should strive to look good, not look young. I don't want to be young, I keep saying that every day. It took me a long time to grow, but it's important that you continue to look good so that young girls will not be afraid of age. Don't be afraid of age so long as you can still be productive. It's a thing of the mind, but make an effort to be healthy and fit. You will be healthy and fit if you watch what you eat and drink, what you do, how much you exercise your body and your frame of mind"
Did you know this about... Igbo Ora? - Desola Bakare of Encomium magazine
Did you know that Igbo Ora in Western Nigeria has the largest population of twins in the World? Igbo Ora, a sleepy town in Oyo State has five times the normal average number of twins births in the population.
The average number of twins born per 1000 in the world is five. In Igbo Ora, the average is 155 twin births per 1000. That's the largest percentage anywhere in the world. Researchers have been debating for years why the people in Yoruba land has the monopoly of twin births.
According to one study, it is believed it has to do with diet. Apparently yam, a vital staple food in Western Nigeria (Iyan, Amala etc) contains large amounts of natural estrogen, the hormone responsible for egg release in women.
It is thought that the diet of these yams cause in many cases more than one egg to be released in women, thereby resulting in large number of twins. The town is called the 'twin capital' of the world.
I never knew this...found it fascinating and thought to share...
