Bleaching can cause infertility and cancer of the kidney – Gynaecologist


Prof. Ernest Orji of the Department of Gynaecology, Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital Complex (OAUTHC), Ile-Ife, says women in the habit of bleaching their skins are prone to the cancer of the kidney and infertility.

He , however, said that one of the components of  bleaching cream is “lead” that is harmful to the skin .

He said that whenever the human  skin component is damaged, the body would be  prone to diseases such as the  cancer of the kidney, liver and  the other parts of the body too could  be affected.

“People,  especially, women should desist from using bleaching cream, because it always  has adverse effects on them by causing  them infertility  in  their later years,” he said.

According to him, the body with toning cream  would not heal up if get wounded as well as react to plasta.

The Gynaecologist advised Nigerians  to feel  contented with the way nature had  created them, saying  that  there  is a great gain in contentment.

Orji, therefore, urged  the general public  to retain and  maintain their natural complexion, emphasising that major  ailments  are linked to self indulgence.
