Two health practitioners have advised against swimming right after eating.
Health Practitioner, Aba Folson said swimming after eating could result in indigestion or cause irritation in the stomach.
“It cannot be true that you can go swimming after eating. It is not a healthy thing because. Immediately you finish eating the food is up there, it is in the stomach and it takes a few hours before getting down in the stomach so if you go swimming in a horizontal manner, it is very likely you will get dizzy.”
Another practitioner, Kwekuma Yalley agreed with Aba Folson, saying swimming right after eating could affect one’s health.
They thus suggested that the food should thoroughly digest before swimming.
The show also recapped the assistance Vodafone had given to various persons battling with health challenges across the country.

For the next part of the show, Salamatu Nantogma, a Specialist Family Physician/ Geriatrician discussed aging and its associated challenges.
She pointed out that contrary to the long-held perception, aging begins at the age of 35.
“Aging is the process that converts a younger adult to an older adult. At 35 you start aging. There are some problems with aging that affect your way of life.”
She said avoiding habits such as smoking and drinking too much could extend one’s life span.
“Food and vegetables are also very necessary. Eating a balanced meal and meditating is very important to make sure you are aging well.”
