Alarm over HIV rates in Mozambique army


Health authorities in Mozambique have expressed concern at the prevalence of HIV among the country’s militarily.

They say 11.5% of the force is HIV-positive.

The head of military health, Agueda Duarte, said the force also had a lower level of adherence to anti-viral treatment compared with the civilian population.

The agency has introduced a rapid testing and treatment programme which will see all HIV-positive soldiers receiving treatment immediately after diagnosis.

Mr Duarte said: “One of the biggest challenges continues to be the increasing number of people with HIV starting treatment and maintaining the regimen. What we want is continuous efforts to reduce the prevalence – reduce as much as possible.”

The Mozambican military received a lot of support from the US President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).

HIV prevalence among Mozambicans aged between 15 and 49 is 13.2%.

However, only 64% know their HIV status.

Type of Vitamin C and why is important to you


C vitamin is one of the most important vitamins for our health. It is very important during warm season as it works as a skin antioxidant as well during the cold season as it also protects our bodies from infections. It helps in the absorption of more vitamins as well as in the healing of wounds.

These are the foods you should add to your diet as they contain huge quantities of C vitamin.

Paw paw.

Just like most tropical fruits, pawpaw contains high percentage of antioxidants, C vitamin included.

Oranges and citrics.

Readily available in local markets, oranges are the most common source of vitamin C.

Berries.

Blueberries, raspberries and blackcurrant, other than being very sweet, are full of nutrients and vitamins.

Red pepper.

There are many different ways of eating red peppers; fresh in a salad or cooked in a sauce. Irrespective of how they are taken, red peppers are a very good source of C vitamin and should be consumed more often.

Parsley.

Another food rich in vitamin C. We like this spice because it adds a lot of taste and colour to our foods, it can also be taken fresh in salads.

Cabbage.

A common food and readily available in groceries. Eat it fresh in salads or cooked it as an accompaniment,rich in c vitamin.

Kiwis.

Eating only one kiwi per day you would be taking more than half of the daily amount of c vitamin your body needs.

Broccoli.

This food can be used in pies, sauces, salads etc. It has double of c vitamin as an orange.

My husband had his own symptoms too. He gets a white milky discharge from the tip of his manhood in the morning, he also experiences pain when urinating, and always had a frequent urge to urinate regularly.

Here’s Why You Should Wash Your Towels More Often Than You Think


It’s nice to use a fresh towel every day, isn’t it? But seriously, how often should you wash your bath towel — the thing that makes us clean and dry but gets dirty itself?

Bright Side wants to share a valuable piece of information with you: the main reason why you need to wash your bath towels more often than you may think.

Research shows that the towels we use every day to dry our skin after a shower spread all kinds of germs and bacteria, providing the ideal conditions for them: moisture, a warm temperature, oxygen, and neutral pH.

The surface of our body hosts thousands of different kinds of microorganisms. When you dry yourself with a towel, the microbes and secretions of the body move to the fabric. Most of these microbes don’t cause damage to our health, but still… They live on your towel, and they multiply very quickly.

But what’s even worse is that your bath towels accumulate other germs and bacteria that are present in the bathroom, including those that come from the toilet — especially if you don’t close the toilet lid before flushing. And that musty odor is definitely a bad sign: if your bath towel has this smell, it means that it has been a breeding ground of bacteria for a while and it’s time to wash it.
