A medical expert has warned against spending too much time on the toilet seats as it causes Hemorrhoids also known as Pile.
Dr Bello, said in an interview on Thursday in IIorin (Kwara), that sitting on toilet seat for more than 15minutes is unhealthy.
He was quoted as saying, “you are not suppose to sit on any toilet seat for more than 15minutes, it can case haemorrhoids, which in medical terms refers to veins in and around the anus.
The consultant warned that “in the process of sitting for long, the veins get engorged with blood and eventually starts bleeding.
The private doctor said that the toilet seat was an unhygienic place no matter clean it looks.
“In as much as some toilets are very neat and tempting to stay for long, we should not forget that it is an unsafe and unhygienic place.
“If you can check your toilet under the microscope and see the number of germs there, I am sure you will not want to stay that long in there.
“So, it is better to play safe and try to remain healthy”, Bello said.
