Dr Afari also advised Ghanaians to change from the consumption of simple to complex carbohydrates to improve digestion.

Complex carbohydrates include potatoes, corn, rice, carrots, yams, oats, wheat, fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, and whole grains.

Simple carbohydrates are processed sugar, corn syrup, bread, fructose, sucrose and fruit juice concentrate among others.
