Just like your urine, eye colour could tell things about your health, your tongue could too. A person’s tongue can give you and your doctor several clues as to what is going on with the rest of your body and because we want you to be on top of your game with everything including our health, INFORMATION NIGERIA in this piece highlights 6 things your tongue could tell about your general health…
White Tongue: A yeast infection in your mouth could be due to antibiotics. When you take this type of medication, it messes with the balance of healthy bacteria in your body. When this happens, you can wind up with a white tongue. Diabetes and autoimmune diseases can also cause the issue.
Red spot: Not all red spot indicate that one has tongue cancer but if you have a lesion that won’t go away, you will definitely want to get it checked out by a doctor to be sure.
Dark and fuzzy: Taking a break off brushing your teeth could get you a fuzzy, discolored tongue. Most dentists say this condition is harmless, but poor dental hygiene can lead to more serious issues overtime, therefore spend a little more time being more diligent with your oral hygiene.
White Patches: These white patches are a buildup of cells on your tongue and are often caused by smoking. They can indicate that you have precancerous cells growing in your mouth that can eventually wind up turning into cancer. If you see these patches, see a doctor ASAP.
Wrinkling Tongue: Your tongue can age just like the outside of your #body can. Experts say that wrinkles on your tongue are generally harmless, but that if they occur, you have to be extra diligent about dental hygiene to be sure they don’t become infected.
Bright red: Your tongue is supposed to be a certain shade of red, but if it’s really bright and shiny, you could have a vitamin deficiency. Specifically, you could be lacking in vitamin B12 or iron. When you don’t get enough of these nutrients, your tongue may look really smooth, which changes the color. Both vitamin B12 and iron can be found in meat, so if you are a vegetarian, talk to your doctor about taking a multivitamin to cover your needs.
Shehu Sani Mocks FG Poverty Alleviation Scheme
Civil Rights activist and former Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial district, Shehu Sani has mocked the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration plan to lift Nigerians out of poverty.

The poor refused to wait for the Government to lift them out of poverty ‘in ten years’ and they went lifting bags of palliatives.
