Health Cheque (Health is Wealth)

Professor Lade Wosornu is one of Africa’s leading surgeons. Even as a student, his promise was evident when he graduated top of his class, winning the coveted Brunton Gold Prize at Glasgow University Medical School, the first African student to do so. He has published extensively in peer-reviewed scientific journals.

His quieter moments are spent, in his own words, “on meditation, comparative religions and poetry.” And this is quite evident from his regular newspaper columns.

I’m curious about his take on common questions about health and medication, and the raging global debates about oils – coconut versus palm oil versus olive oil, the place of traditional herbal medicine and other common myths. How much of the contestation is driven by investors and money? And of course, if the spirits behave themselves poetry will perform him.
