Cellophine bags: Avoid packing hot foods in cellophine bags or using them to process any food on fire. This is because, chemicals from them can melt into the food you eat and it will become cancerous to your body. E.g moi moi, okpa, hot akara and so on.

Properly washed banana or plantain leaves is better, as stated by NAFDAC.

These are not the only causes of cancer, old age could also be a factor, gene, radiation, certain work hazards also. But these are easily prevented, if we do the right thing.

Stay healthy and stay safe, remember “the future needs you”.
