There is this wild perception that coffin makers and sellers are the most heartless persons in Ghana because it is always their prayer that people die all the time so that they could cash on.

Well, Kwame Marfo one of the leaders of Kumasi Asafo Coffin makers and sellers disagrees with this assertion stating that in as much as they are in business, they are hurt when someone loses are relation.

Speaking to Ike De Unpredictable on Kumasi-based Angel Fm monitored by MyNewsGh.com, he disclosed that their prayers are towards the good of Ghana and its citizens but maintained that death is inevitable.

According to him, it is always hurting to see someone shopping for a coffin to inter a relation which affects the bereaved person physically and emotionally.

Pushed by the host for a yes or no answer if they are happy when people die, Kwame Marfo explained that “Ike, we don’t feel happy when people die but we always pray to God to help us get business, make money and take care of our families”.

“Praying to God to help us get money doesn’t mean we want people to die or we are happy when people die but death is part of human journey and no one can escape death”.

Recently, members of the association were lamenting that marriage has become very scarce for them because of the profession in which they find themselves.

Some Coffin makers in the Garden city speaking in an interview with Pure Fm’s Osei Kwadwo monitored by MyNewsGh.com, explained that ladies always reject their marriage and love proposal because of their work.

According to them, “When we propose to the ladies they will accept our proposal but when they find out we manufacture coffins then they will call for a break up”.

HIV-AIDS, Cancer and other dangerous chronic diseases associated with LGBT People – ghanapublisher.com

The LGBT group in Ghana organized a fundraising which was attended by several diplomats including the Australian High Commissioner who pledged to support the group.

After the organization, tension has mounted in the country with a lot of opinion leaders advocating against LGBT in the country (Ghana).

An official notice cited by our news desk indicated the president of Ghana ordered the closure of the LGBT office with immediate effect.

Aside the evil tag against the act, there are a lot of dangerous chronic health implication with people who involve themselves in the LGBT.

A lot of LGBT health research funding and public attention still goes to AIDS.

But the LGBT community also experiences higher rates of other less visible health issues, like high blood pressure and earlier onset of disabilities, according to a recent Kaiser Family Foundation Research report.

On top of that, LGBT adults face more challenges in getting healthcare.

Stress and anxiety that’s fueled by discrimination are the likely culprits, say many experts.

These stresses can occur on many fronts, such as hearing about constant LGBT legal battles, workplace discrimination, or being denied healthcare.

“There is minority stress,” Gilbert Gonzales, assistant professor in the Department of Health Policy at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, told Health-line. “And it’s above the everyday stress. There’s also a lot of variation within the LGBT community.”

Another studyNTrusted Source of over 68,000 American adults found that lesbian, gay, and bisexual adults drank and smoked more heavily than heterosexual adults.

Gonzales, who co-authored the study, describes smoking and drinking as a “coping mechanism” for dealing with discrimination. “It could be drowning feelings by self-medicating,” he said.

Stress and anxiety are indeed linked to poor health outcomes, Carrie Henning-Smith, a research associate at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health and who also co-authored the report, told Healthline.

“And we need to be concerned about it,” she said. “Homophobia is alive and well.”

As the federal government begins collecting more health data on sexual orientation, these disparities are finally coming to light, experts noted.

Bisexual people face the most health issues

Peeling away the health differences within the LGBT community is revealing, too.

For example, lesbian — and especially bisexual — women are more likely to be overweight than heterosexual women.

“And being overweight is a big risk factor for chronic diseases,” said Gonzalez.

Lesbian and bisexual women are also more likely to receive diagnoses with some cancers as well as higher rates of cardiovascular disease, according to the Kaiser Foundation report.

But bisexual people reported the poorest overall health.

They’re less likely to describe their health as excellent and had higher levels of distress. This group was also the least likely to be insured and also avoided getting medical care in the past year due to cost.

“Bisexuals do have the highest health risks,” said Henning-Smith, who passionately believes that all people should have a chance to have a healthy life. “One theory is that they’re a minority within a minority.”

Gay men can suffer from little-discussed health issues too, such as eating disorders fueled by body image.

According to studies, gay men were seven times more likely to report binging and 12 times more likely to report purging than heterosexual men.

Transgender college students are five times more likely to have an eating disorder than their peers.

And binge eating has serious side effects, such as cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes.

“Binging can also lead to social isolation,” Dr. Stephanie Setliff, medical director at the Eating Recovery Center in Dallas, told Healthline, as feelings of shame and guilt arise.

Finally, older members of the LGBT community face mounting health issues as they age.

According to a University of Washington study that examined health conditions among LGB adults over 50, lesbian and bisexual women are more likely to have chronic health conditions than heterosexual women.

These health conditions include strokes, heart attacks, and asthma.

“This is a population that isn’t getting the attention it deserves,” said Karen Fredriksen-Goldsen, director of the Health Generations Hartford Center of Excellence at the University of Washington, in a press release about the study. “Lesbian and bisexual women tend to be more invisible.”

Aging gay men, lesbians, and bisexual people also usually lack family support and end up living alone.

They report higher rates of mental distress and isolation, according to a policy brief by the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research.

However, when moving into nursing homes, elder abuse is rampant, too.

According to surveys, 43 percent of LGBTQ seniors have either been abused by caretakers or witnessed abuse, such as being evicted from long-term care facilities.

“This abuse is a hard one,” said Gonzales. “When health deteriorates, some will enter nursing homes. Often, that process leads them to go back into the closet.”
