Lahore (27th July, 2019): Fellowship of the College of Physicians and Surgeons (FCPS) doctor claims local skin creams leading cause of cancer in Pakistan.
According to reports of Baaghi TV, many nationally and internationally manufactured skin and whitening creams are the leading cause of skin cancer in Pakistan. Based on the data provided to Baaghi TV, it can be observed that these very well known creams contain such high levels of mercury that it becomes the major cause of cancer.
The data provided to Baaghi TV has names of renowned international brands such as:
- Fair & Lovely
As well as locally manufactured creams such as:
- Face Fresh
- White Touch
- White Face
- Zuni Beauty Cream
Apart from causing cancer, these creams are also toxic for the human body’s nervous system. They further harm a person’s self by making them victims of inferiority complex. People use such whitening creams and others because they are not happy with the way they look. The best way to save oneself from the dangers of developing skin cancer therefore, is to not use any whitening creams and/or other products largely unnecessary for one’s skin.
One other thing that a person can do to ensure this is to use natural or herbal cosmetics such as Oriflame, or to consult your physician so as to protect yourself from severely high levels of mercury consumption.
