Writers Space Africa

Designed just for you

Man is on a serious self-destruct spree. Life is fast moving I agree, and man, trying to impress or rather keep up is expensively buying himself a hospital bed. We want things to happen fast or with the press of a button, easily without breaking a single sweat.

Let’s start with the factory processed food we consume in tonnes. You know, fast foods, GMOs and all those taste buds appeasing foods we enjoy only to cry foul when we crash-land in the surgery room.

Moving on to the next self-destruction apparatus, products that we are buying expensively in pursuit of cosmetic beauty. From creams, lotions, colognes, gels, pills and even wigs. Do your math. Are they’ll really necessary?

Apparatus number three, the air we breathe is polluted with car fumes, factory wastes and all other enemies of the respiratory system. Why? Riding bicycles to work is a wayward life and how else will people see your latest guzzler?

Apparatus number four. We long kicked physical exercises out together with the old. You drive to work, use the elevator, swing on your office chair all day and drive back home to feed on junk and the series continues.

Only when things run south, do you panic and hurriedly enrol into a gym and start your workouts.

As if that is not enough destruction, you keep your eyes glued to your screen, head bent and fingers typing. Eye problems and back problems are added to your cart of misery.

So, why feign surprise when you later leak of lifestyle diseases? We leak of cancer, diabetes, arthritis, asthma, obesity, amongst other lethal self-imposed chilling diseases.

You may want to assume that scientists are not sleeping researching for a cure. Whom do you think, they have in mind?

What is on your plate? What is that content in your glass? How well are you looking after your body? Tell your doctor I said hello.
