ALERT! Eating Banku Wrapped In Polythene Materials Equals To Smoking 135 Sticks Of Cigarette; Banku is one of the commonest Ghanaian dishes and a lot of people have adapted to wrapping it in polythene materials as it is believed to keep the banku fresh and warm. Nobody knows who brought this ideology or where it came from.

Mr.Dominic Gyamfi, a researcher of the University of Ghana Medical School has come out to educate and warn the general public on the serious consequences this act poses to our health.

According to Dominic Gyamfi, plastic materials such as polythene bags, plastic bowls, and take-away packs contains harmful chemicals which are very dangerous to the health of consumers.

The specialist who uncovered this on Adom FM said, the report depends on his optional examination in the course of the most recent three years.

He unveiled that,” wrapping polythene with banku is proportional to smoking 136 sticks of cigarette. ” Mr. Gyamfi noticed that infections like diabetes, low sperm check, hypertension, are on the ascent in light of the fact that “a large portion of the nourishments available are dangerous and harmful.”

“Scientifically, plastics will blur and the synthetic compounds will filter into the food we expend and this can cause blockages into the veins, promoting cardiovascular infections, for example, hypertension, diabetes, and stroke,” he said.

The synthetic, break the speed at which the bloodstreams into the heart and cerebrum making the individual presented to a wide range of constant sickness.

Dominic Gyamfi kept up that, 80% of deaths in Ghana could have been maintained a strategic distance from if individuals are cautious about what they expend. Be that as it may, James Larbi, the Communications Director of the Food and Drugs Authority exposed a large portion of the cases by Mr. Gyamfi.

He demanded that the statement had no logical proof, however was fairly a result of work area research. Or maybe, Mr. Larbi encouraged Dominic Gyamfi to introduce his examination findings to the FDA to guarantee sanitation in Ghana.

Ireland suspends the use of Astrazeneca COVID-19 Vaccine after reported cases of serious blood clotting in some recipients


Ireland became the latest country to stop using AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine on Sunday, temporarily suspending the shot “out of an abundance of caution” after reports from Norway of serious blood clotting in some recipients there.

Three health workers in Norway who had recently received the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine were being treated in hospital for bleeding, blood clots and a low count of blood platelets, its health authorities said on Saturday.

Ireland’s National Immunisation Advisory Committee (NIAC) recommended the temporary deferral pending the receipt of more information from the European Medicines Agency (EMA) in the coming days.

AstraZeneca on Sunday said it had conducted a review covering more than 17 million people vaccinated in the European Union and the UK which had shown no evidence of an increased risk of blood clots.

Denmark, Norway and Iceland have suspended the use of the vaccine over clotting issues, while Thailand became the first country outside of Europe to do so on Friday, delaying its AstraZeneca rollout over the safety concerns in Europe.

Italy’s northern region of Piedmont on Sunday said it would stop using a batch of AstraZeneca vaccines after a teacher died following his vaccination on Saturday. Austria also stopped using a particular batch last week.

The EMA said on Friday that there is no indication that the events were caused by the vaccination, a view that was echoed by the World Health Organisation.

‘WE MAY BE OVERREACTING’

Irish authorities received some reports of clotting similar to those seen in Europe last week but nothing as serious as the cases in Norway, Deputy Chief Medical Officer Ronan Glynn said.

Glynn said the fact that the Norwegian cases related to a cluster of four unusual clotting events involving the brain in 30 to 40 year-olds raised the higher level of concern.

He said that one of the reasons Ireland acted now was that it was due to administer the AstraZeneca vaccine to people of a similar age with serious underlying conditions next week.

Rejected Rastafarian student sues Achimota School management

Rastafarian student sues Achimota School: One of the students allegedly refused admission at Achimota School on the basis of having dreadlocks due to his Rastafarian belief, has sued the governing board of the school and the Attorney General.

According to the motion filed through his father Tereo Kwame Marhguy at the Human Rights division of the High Court, Tyron Iras Marhguy (Student applicant) said the decision of Achimota School denying him admission as a result of his hairstyle is a clear violation of his Constitutional right to education guaranteed under Article 25 (1)b, and 28 (4) of the 1992 Constitution.

“There is no lawful basis for [Achimota School] to interfere with the applicant’s right to education based on his rasta through which he manifests or expresses his constitutionally guaranteed right to religion and to practice and manifest same,” the suit said.

The family wants “an order directed at [Achimota School] to immediately admit or enrol the applicant to continue with his education unhindered.”

Affidavit in support

According to the father of the applicant, his son “duly complied with the school selection and examination registration processes. The Applicant at all material times was a Rastafarian by religion and that Rastafarianism is a religious movement, began in Jamaica in the 1930s and adopted by many groups around the globe, that combines protestant Christianity, mysticism and a pan-African political consciousness.”

“A key tenet of Rastafarianism is the wearing of dreadlocks, which is drawn from the Nazarite vow in the Old Testament of the Bible. In particular, at Numbers 6:5, where it is said “All the days of the vow of his separation there shall no razor come upon his head: until the days be fulfilled, in the which he separateth himself unto the LORD, he shall be holy, and shall let the locks of the hair of his head grow.”

The affidavit further states “the Applicant has therefore worn his hair in dreadlocks throughout his studies at the Junior High School, where he excelled academically, was a model student, and was made Senior Prefect. The dreadlocks have caused no problems for him, his mates, his teachers, or the schools.”

The 58 paragraph affidavit further notes that “the Applicant’s colleagues who were admitted into the School by virtue the CSSPS placement have commenced classes whiles he is discriminatorily denied same right to education in the School and he is currently at home simply because of his expression of his religious faith, without injury to any other person. The Applicant has always been of good behaviour in his former schools and would continue to do so. And that in a recent media reportage carried out by Citi TV about the Applicant in his former school, his former teachers and school mates attested to his positive behavior and expressed their shock about the discrimination being meted against him”.

“The Applicant believes that unless this Honourable court intervenes, the 1st Respondent, its officials, teachers, and other authorities will continue to violate his fundamental and constitutionally guaranteed rights to education, religion, administrative justice, and right against discrimination. I am informed by Counsel and respectfully concur with that advice that upon a breach of the Applicant’s fundamental human rights, he is entitled to seek redress before this Honourable Court” the affidavit stated.

According to the motion filed at the Human Rights division of the High Court, dated the 31st of March 2021, Tyron Iras Marhguy (Student Applicant) suing by the Next Friend and father, says the decision of Achimota school not to admit him because of his hair style is a violation of his Constitutional right to education guaranteed under Article 25 (1)b, and 28 (4) of the 1992 Constitution.

You goofed, apologize for your action - A constitutional lawyer to Achimota School

You goofed, apologize for your action – A constitutional lawyer to Achimota School

A constitutional lawyer, Mr. Martin Kpebu has asked the Achimota School to apologize to the country for refusing to accept students with dreadlocks.

Mr. Kpebu said on the Key Points on TV3 Saturday March 27 that the school authorities made a mistake regarding the decision not to accept the students.

“They just goofed and I think Ahimota School should just eat a humble pie. They should just accept that they made a mistake, they should apologize to us,” he told host of the programme Abvena Tabi.

He added “I think the Achimota misjudged the extent to which Ghana is evolving. Now, people can access information from all over the world at the click of a bottom, and considering the issue of Achimota itself to the extent that they had allowed white girls with Rasta hair to enroll and complete, this should have been the last decision that they could take.”

Meanwhile, Education Minister, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum has called for calm over this issue.

He said the Ghana Education Service (GES)” within the shortest possible time is going to lay out specific guidelines for heads of schools as to how we proceed in this environment”.

“Mr. Speaker, I can tell you, meetings have been held, others are ongoing, which the Ministry of Education is facilitating, to make sure that our students operate in an environment that they give of their best,” he said on the floor of Parliament.
