‘Eating Fufu on Sundays Causes Cancer’ – Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research
Fufu is one of the widely consumed dishes in Ghana. Though being the native food of the Ashantis, its popularity has catapulted it into becoming a national dish consumed by natives of other cultures. Foreigners who visit Ghana also make it a point to have a taste of this delicious dish.
A typical Ashanti-man wouldn’t mind eating fufu every day though others prefer having theirs on weekends. This has brought about Sunday fufu joints all over the country. Friends and loved ones would be seen at these eateries before or after church service. Little did they know that they were gradually killing themselves.
A research report released by the Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research states that eating fufu on Sundays could cause cancer. At a conference well-attended by fufu lovers and various media houses including ScrewLife.Com, the leader of the research team stated that, eating fufu on Sundays could cause Fufuosoma Intestinatica (Intestinal cancer caused by fufu). This he explained as saying, “majority of the human organs go on break during Sundays in order to have enough rest for the pressures of Monday.”
“In view of this, eating fufu on Sundays when your organs are also resting will make it difficult for digestion to take place. The fufu would therefore pile up in your intestines; causing the growth of cancer-causing organisms. The bacteria would then feed on the fufu, grow, reproduce, and start eating your intestines once the fufu is finished. Their waste materials will go on to cause cancer,” he stated.
In order to save one’s life, the professor advised Ghanaians to desist from eating fufu on Sundays.
The Institute is working assiduously to come up with a cure for this kind of cancer. For now, abstinence is the best option for all,” he concluded.
