A senior medical practitioner and the Chief Executive Officer of Profecy Scientific Herbal Clinic, Noble Dr. Elijah Mensah Bonsu has warned the public that more men are dying of kidney diseases than women due to alcohol intake and sexual enhancing drugs (aphrodisiacs) that can cause eternal health damages to one’s kidney.
According to Dr. Bonsu, the indiscriminate use of aphrodisiac is gradually becoming a major cause of kidney failure in Ghana.
Dr. Bonsu in an interview with the media in the Ashanti today explained that, although all genders are reporting issues of kidney failure, most of the reported cases turn out to be men who have consistently used aphrodisiacs to enhance their sexual drive.
Dr. Mensah Bonsu as part of the Kidney Awareness Month said “We are once again warning the public, these aphrodisiacs have substances that destroy your kidney beyond repairs, that’s why we have consistently embarked on massive education on the need to ensure kidney health by avoiding certain practices”.
The medical Dr. is also urging the Government to place more Tax on alcohol and aphrodisiacs to despise people from patronizing them.
