Questions on my plate. 

Hello friends.
There was this article about cold tea causing heart attacks that went round the Internet some time. I responded to it and thought I had silenced in my circle of friends. Alas, it came back bigger and badder. It now includes a gist about fruits causing all manner of stuff.

If you haven’t seen the post, here it is:

Eating Fruit on Empty Stomach

This will open your eyes ! Read to the end; and then, send it to others on your list as I just did to u!

Dr Stephen Mak treats terminal ill cancer patients by an “un-orthodox” way and many patients recovered.

Before he used solar energy to clear the illnesses of his patients, he believes on natural healing in the body against illnesses. See his article below.

It is one of the strategies to heal cancer. As of late, my success rate in curing cancer is about 80%.

Cancer patients shouldn’t die. The cure for cancer is already found – it’s in the way we eat fruits.

It is whether you believe it or not.

I am sorry for the hundreds of cancer patients who die under the conventional treatments.


We all think eating fruits means just buying fruits, cutting it and just popping it into our mouths.

It’s not as easy as you think. It’s important to know how and when to eat the fruits.

What is the correct way of eating fruits?



If you eat fruits on empty stomach, it will play a major role to detoxify your system, supplying you with a great deal of energy for weight loss and other life activities.


Let’s say you eat two slices of bread and then a slice of fruit.

The slice of fruit is ready to go straight through the stomach into the intestines, but it is prevented from doing so due to the bread taken before the fruit.

In the meantime the whole meal of bread & fruit rots and ferments and turns to acid.

The minute the fruit comes into contact with the food in the stomach and digestive juices, the entire mass of food begins to spoil.

So please eat your fruits on an empty stomach or before your meals !

You have heard people complaining :

Every time I eat watermelon I burp, when I eat durian my stomach bloats up, when I eat a banana I feel like running to the toilet, etc.. etc..

Actually all this will not arise if you eat the fruit on _an empty stomach._

The fruit mixes with the putrefying of other food and produces gas and hence you will bloat !

Greying hair, balding, nervous outburst and dark circles under the eyes all these will NO happen if you take fruits on an empty stomach.

There is no such thing as some fruits, like orange and lemon are acidic, because all fruits become alkaline in our body, according to Dr. Herbert Shelton who did research on this matter.

If you have mastered the correct way of eating fruits, you have the SECRET of beauty, longevity, health, energy, happiness and normal weight.

When you need to drink fruit juice – drink only fresh fruit juice, NOT from the cans, packs or bottles.

Don’t even drink juice that has been heated up.

Don’t eat cooked fruits because you don’t get the nutrients at all.

You only get its taste.
Cooking destroys all the vitamins.

But eating a whole fruit is better than drinking the juice.

If you should drink the fresh fruit juice, drink it mouthful by mouthful slowly, because you must let it mix with your saliva before swallowing it.

You can go on a 3-day fruit fast to cleanse or detoxify your body.

Just eat fruits and drink fresh fruit juice throughout the 3 days.

And you will be surprised when your friends tell you how radiant you look !
KIWI fruit:
Tiny but mighty.
This is a good source of potassium, magnesium, vitamin E & fiber. Its vitamin C content is twice that of an orange.

An apple a day keeps the doctor away?
Although an apple has a low vitamin C content, it has antioxidants & flavonoids which enhances the activity of vitamin C thereby _helping to lower the risks of colon cancer, heart attack & stroke._

Protective Fruit.
Strawberries have the highest total antioxidant power among major fruits & protect the body from cancer-causing, blood vessel-clogging and free radicals.

Sweetest medicine.
Taking 2-4 oranges a day may _help keep colds away, lower cholesterol, prevent & dissolve kidney stones as well as lessens the risk of colon cancer._

Coolest thirst quencher. Composed of 92% water, it is also packed with a giant dose of glutathione, which _helps boost our immune system._

They are also a key source of lycopene the cancer fighting oxidant.
Other nutrients found in watermelon are vitamin C & Potassium.

Top awards for vitamin C. They are the clear winners for their high vitamin C content.

Guava is also rich in fiber, which helps prevent constipation.

Papaya is rich in carotene; this is good for your eyes.

Can you believe this ?

For those who like to drink cold water or cold drinks, this article is applicable to you.

It is nice to have a cup of cold water or cold drinks after a meal.

However, the cold water or drinks will solidify the oily stuff that you have just eaten.

It will slow down the digestion.

Once this ‘sludge’ reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food.

It will line the intestine.

Very soon, this will turn into FATS and lead to CANCER !

It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

Let’s be careful and be aware. The more we know the better chance we could survive.

A cardiologist says:
if everyone who gets this mail sends it to 10 people, you can be sure that we’ll save at least one life.

So lets do it.

PHEEEW! SORRY FOR THE LONG READ GUYS had to make sure that whole article came in. 

Okay now.
As I mentioned before, the post has two parts. The first part about fruits is addressed on a fun but enriching platform of friends I belong to.

I have harvested a discussion on the post from another platform.

The second part, which is about cold drinks and heart attacks and the Chinese people, is addressed by an article on my blog, as I mentioned earlier. I have added the link at the end of the discussion on fruits.


Dr Linda: Well I know the part Abt… Fruit getting mixed with the food=acid is not quite true sha;)
Dr Daniel: The only part of this post I can readily say is true I the portion that details to benefits of the various fruits like Kiwi, Watermelon and so on. 

But… Food rotting in the stomach? 😒Na carpenter design the human body?

Sunny: Jesus was a carpenter naa.

IJ: Suuuuuunnnyyyy!

Dr Daniel: Gerrarahere meeeeehn!

Dr Linda: With your knowledge of biology and digestion, does food rot in our system?

Dr Daniel: No matter what you eat and how you eat it, it will spend 3-4 hours in the stomach before moving into the intestines, even the fruits. The only thing that gets absorbed before this time line are some sugars, from whatever source. That’s why we use glucose-D, Lucosade boost, soft drinks or plain table sugar to rescue people who fall into hypoglycaemia, especially diabetics.

Acid is secreted by the walls of the stomach not by food in our stomach.

Dr Linda: See, God created our body to detoxify itself. In fact, that is the major work of the liver.

Dr Linda: It is good to eat fruits cos there are some vitamins you can only get in them

Michael: OK…

Dr Linda: The liver has problems detoxifying the body when it is diseased.

Michael: Hmmmmm

Dr Daniel: Yes. That’s true

Dr Linda: Like I said few days ago, always check the source. Some people bring out some funny researches just to convince people to either buy their drugs or adopt their way of life.

The reason you feel like using the toilet after fruits is cos most have fibres called roughages which helps the movement of the intestine which is why fruits are used to treat constipation.

Dr Daniel: All this detoxification we peddle is not true naa. The liver and kidneys handle the toxins our bodies encounter, not the intestines. In fact, the intestines create toxins of their own when fecal matter overstay due to the activities of naturally occurring bacteria. If you don’t do “number two regularly”, you might notice you have frequent headaches; yhose toxins are partly responsible.

I agree that if you lay off food for a while and take only water, you will feel lighter and that light feeling comes with a sense of well being.

But if you continue like that, you will build up dangerous toxins that even the liver struggles with as the body starts breaking down muscle after it has exhausted the fat in your body.

Dr Linda: Go eat lime or lemon on empty stomach, you go hear am.

Fejiro: The level of quackery on the internet is staggering. And it is sad that so many people fall victim to this nonsense.

Dr Daniel: The good old magic of taking balanced diet doesn’t fail. Take all you need in the right proportions and you would be fine.

There are some, sake of their health, are placed on a fruit-major diet for some time.

I know we are to love our neighbours as we love ourselves but let’s stop taking panadol for another person’s headache. If you have not been placed on a fruit diet as part of a treatment protocol for a present disease, don’t adopt it as a lifestyle because you heard it treats a disease you don’t have!

IJ: ha ha ha ha

Dr Daniel: Abeg o, there is a much established connection between acids and ulcers so if you make a habit of taking acidic fruits like the citrus family of oranges, lemon, lime, on an empty stomach, you’re dieting your way to peptic ulcer disease o. There is a reason those fruits have a slight bitter taste…. That’s the acid warning.

Once someone claims they have 80% cure rate in cancers…. me eyes start twitching ;). Only God can boast of that and be correct.

Uche: Chaiiiiiii! I don go spend my last N500 go buy fruits o. Wetin make I do naa?

Michael: Give it to me.

Dr Linda: Sell it to others who read this post for N2000. You go just hammer.

IJ: Ha ha ha ha

Dr Daniel: Buying the fruits is good. Make it a regular part of your diet. Nothing wrong with that.

Dr Linda: Who is this doc sef? “Drinking cold water after a meal causes cancer?” Hian!

Dr Daniel: Once in a while, try fruit salads as part of your meal.

Dr Linda: There is also this new weight loss rave that is going on now called ketone diet . Pls read this article before you try anything.

Dr Daniel: How many times will this cold water causes cancer gist circulate.

The sad part is some of us will believe all these “dem say” kind of talk and start working with them but when a trained doctor mentions anything we start binding the doctor as if na devil in white coat.

Who is this cardiologist they keep quoting at the end of these toxic posts?

Michael: Na aloe vera doctor joor.

Dr Linda: Google his name to even know who he is.

He is being called a fraud.

I decided to copy the article for us just in case we can’t access the link.

“Who, and where, is Dr Stephen Mak?

In my search for the elusive Dr Stephen Mak, the nearest I was able to get to him was a Dr Stephen Mark, a psychiatrist in Waco, Texas who has a clean record with his patients and the authorities. He probably wastes a good part of his day explaining to people that he is a Mark rather than a Mak.

Mak only Googles in connection with the above so-called cures and advice. It would be safe to conclude that if he exists at all (and he possibly does under another name) he is probably making a lot of money from gullible people before they die.

If anyone has any positive proof that Dr Stephen Mak is a real person, please post your evidence in the comment space below.”

Dr Daniel: And as many as are led by the Internet, they are the sons of… 🤔

Faith:… Sons of the Internet.

IJ: 😂😂😂
