- Vegetarians are impressing on Ghanaians to check their meals
- They argue that taking heavy breakfasts is dangerous
The association of Ghanaian vegetarians claim it is unhealthy to eat heavy meals for breakfast.
According to the president of the vegetarian association, Dr Kofi Asare, the body's metabolism is so weak to process heavy meals in the morning.
Speaking at the 11th edition of the annual Vegetarian Festival, Dr Kofi Asare argues that most deaths recorded in Ghana are mainly due to the bad eating habits of Ghanaians.
“ It is inappropriate for you to use your energy to break down heavy food in the morning. You need activity in the morning… sweat before you eat... and when the blood is circulating and its very warm, digestion become effective” He revealed.
Meanwhile, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has shown that the cause of death among Ghanaians from 2016 till now are related to some key health conditions which continue to establish themselves in the country.
