Feb 28, 2018 – Pregnant Ghanaian Women Urged To Stop Taking Pills To Bleach Unborn Babies Skin
A new trend among expectant mothers in Ghana is troubling.
Medical experts in the West African country have urged pregnant women to stop taking skin lightening pills aimed at helping their unborn babies have light skin.
The trending drug, Gluthathione has been recalled by Ghana’s Food and Drugs Agency as it is capable of causing serious birth defects including damage to major organs and the limb.
Here is a statement released by the agency:
Ghana is one of the top African countries with high percentage of people with dark and beautiful skin.
Like in most countries of the world, most women in Ghana are obsessed with light skin hence, the desperate move by some uninformed expectant mothers.
What would they gain by bleaching an innocent baby skin.???
