By Muhammad Auwal
A Gynecologist at the Specialists’ Hospital, Bauchi, Dr Habiba Ismail, has cautioned women on their choice of brassiers to allow free flow of blood to the breast region.
In an interview with newsmen, Dr Habiba Ismail
said that the use of brassieres that had iron ‘push up’ now fashionable and trending, could impede blood circulation.
“Brassieres with iron are trending but could cause harm to women.
Women should use brassieres without iron to allow free flow of blood in the breast region.
“The iron in the brassieres could lead to breast problems due to the inability of blood to get to the region,”she said.
Habiba said that non-flow of blood could cause ailments related to breast region, including cancer.
She reminded women that cancer of the breast had become a public health issue, hence the need to take preventive measures could not be over emphasized.
