A breast cancer advocate and President of Breast Care Initiative, Dr Beatrice Wiafe Addai, has cautioned women against skin bleaching.

The breast health specialist hinted, lightening of the skin increases one’s chances of getting breast and uterus cancer.

This according to Dr. Wiafe is based on research findings of Ghana breast health study conducted by three health institutions – Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital, Korle Bu Teaching Hospital and Peace and Love Hospital.

“What we observed was that, skin lightening is one of the risk factors in women contracting breast cancer. Modern bleaching has moved from the use of only cream to using pills and injection. These come with negative effects on the body and increases the risk of getting the cancer. More worrying is also the risk of getting gyaenacological cancer. It is important young women refrain from any form of skin bleaching.”
