Dr Muhammed Alkali
As Muslims all over the country celebrate Eid-el Kabir, which is characterized by slaughtering of animals, the Chief Medical Director (CMD) of the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University Teaching Hospital (ATBUTH) Bauchi, Dr Muhammed Alkali has advised people not to eat excess meat so as to avoid catching diarrhoea.
He gave this advice during an interview with newsmen Friday where he noted the propensity that many people may suffer from diarrhoea this festive period because of the availability of a lot of meat.
He pointed out that those who cook their animals well, store it in a hygienic place and eat less will remain healthy throughout the salad season.
Alkali also cautioned people against taking potash or tamarind liquid as a prevention against diarrhoea noting that they cannot prevent the problem but are capable of causing ulcer because ‘tamarind has too much acids’.
