nafdac warns against consumption of ponmo NAFDAC warns against consumption of Ponmo Ponmo 1024x683

The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has warned the general public to be careful of the consumption of animal hides, known as Ponmo.

A statement signed by the Director General (DG) of the agency, Mrs Mojisola Adeyeye, stated that most of those animal hides were meant for industrial use.

Adeyeye added that some of the animal hides were pre-treated with industrial chemicals, which were not of food grade and were toxic and injurious to human health.

According to the her, investigations have revealed that some companies legally imported hides from countries like Lebanon and Turkey, while majority of the product were smuggled into the country through the porous borders.

“The Management of NAFDAC wishes to use this medium to alert the general public and in particular consumers of animal hides popularly known as Ponmo on the activities of some unscrupulous business men and traders.

“These imported animal hides are meant for industrial use by leather industries for the manufacturing of items such as shoes, bag, belt and others.

“Health hazards inherent in the consumption of such animal hides include risk of liver, kidney and heart damage, increased risk of Aplastic anaemia, central nervous system toxicity, cancer and many more,’’ she said.

The DG also said live stock farmers were also advised to note that industrial animal hides could not be used to manufacture animal feed.

“The associated chemicals will be stored in the tissues of these animals and will eventually end up in humans when consumed with the attendant effects.

“NAFDAC, therefore, encourage the general public to be vigilant and exercise discretion when purchasing animal hides, PONMO and indeed other food items,’’ Adeyeye said in the statement.

She stated that NAFDAC was fully alive to its responsibilities of assuring the safety, wholesomeness and quality of processed foods offered for sale to the public.

“The agency has increased the tempo of targeted and aggressive routine and unannounced inspections to monitor activities of animal hide merchants.”

Some women will notice that during pregnancy, their hairs are usually healthier. This is as a result of estrogen that is being produced. The estrogen stimulates the hair follicles to start the growing phase, and that is why as a pregnant woman, you’ll notice that your hair grows significantly faster than it did before you got pregnant. After childbirth, the estrogen level drops and returns to the pre-pregnancy level, prompting the hair follicles to enter the resting phase.

The estrogen and progesterone changes, stress and nutrition also affect hormone levels which can also affect hair growth. Thyroiditis, which is caused by an imbalance of thyroid hormones can create an imbalance in the thyroid hormones and affect growth.

Thyroiditis, which is caused by an imbalance of thyroid hormones can create an imbalance in the thyroid hormones and affect growth. To prevent hair loss, ensure that you’re getting regular, gentle-to-moderate exercise. This keeps all the vital organs of your body active and can help regulate the hormonal imbalance during pregnancy. Also, do not underrate the essence of a good diet. Consume a healthy diet rich in nutrients to support your body that is experiencing changes and help its postpartum recovery. If recommended by your doctor, take postpartum vitamin and mineral supplements if recommended by your doctor.

To avoid hair loss. the following should be done

•    Reduce stress: Reducing stress levels do not only bring about peace of mind but also has the added benefit of regulating hormone imbalances. Practice different relaxation techniques like mindfulness, meditation or breathing exercises.
•    Use anti-hair loss cream: While going shopping for your delivery, do not forget to add hair creams that help hair growth during postpartum. The Ginger Anti Hair Loss Balm from Natures Gentle Touch has been proven to be very effective in this regard, both for people suffering from normal hair loss and women in their postpartum stage.

•    Maintain a healthy lifestyle: The hair follicles need nutrients to grow and be healthy. Besides applying tons of cosmetics and hair creams on your hair, another way of supplying nutrients to the hair follicle is by eating healthy food. Take lots of vegetables, whole grains, and fresh fruits. Do not forget to drink plenty of water throughout the day to stay hydrated.
