Terrorists Activity contributes to low rate Routine Immunisation in Nigeria

Nigerians eat from plastic bags

I have been wanting to work on this story for a long time. It is a common practice to see Nigerians buy cooked foods and drink in plastic bags. I have done several times in the past with my colleagues; but had often wondered if it is a healthy thing to do. In the cause of my research and speaking with Emmanuel Unuabonah I realised we are gradually poisoning and killing ourselves. It is probably why we have rising cases of kidney failures and cancer related cases.
