Why is acute hemorrhagic conjunctivitis called Apollo 11 disease?
The Apollo 11 Moon Landing was a world-wide event, (just as Americans know exactly where they were and what they were doing when John F Kennedy was assasinated), most of the world watched the Apollo Moon Landing. So when Acute Hemorrhagic Conjunctivitis suddenly emerged in Ghana, West Africa at the same time of the Apollo 11 moon landing, it was nicknamed "Apollo 11" disease. In West Africa, the disease is still referred to as "Apollo."

Imbibing even with a few drinks of alcohol or just eating noodles immediately before bedtime compound this on an empty stomach will trigger an electrolyte imbalance and other factors that causes a person to dehydrate or lose water.It is therefore advisable for a person to take several glasses of water before bedtime if he had a few or several alcoholic drinks. Avoid eating noodles before bedtime, but if you can not avoid it, allow at least two hours for the body to digest the noodles before hitting the sack and drink plenty of water.The most important thing is, never go thirsty when going to bed and be sure you have plenty of water during your 8-hour rest..
