Mpango wa kando is a well known phrase in this city. Most Nairobians don’t need to have it spelt out. And a good number practise the trade whenever they choose, or if a chance presents itself.
But therein lies a good recipe for disease.
Our lives are full of innocent habits that come almost naturally to us. You almost don’t think twice when ordering a favourite meal or drink. On the other hand, some of us are keenly aware of some really bad habits that can affect our health. Like smoking, drinking too much, or eating junk. Well, you also need to be cognizant of seemingly innocent habits that can have grave consequences on your health.
It’s entirely possible that you take your pee for granted. After all, it’s almost an automated process. You take some drinks, or eat some juicy stuff, and then you head off to pee whenever the call comes. It is a well regulated bodily mechanism, taking care of excess fluids and helping to eliminate some toxins. The status of your peeing habits also carries various clues about your health status, and it pays to be aware of this.
