Explaining further, Dr. Olunfumilayo said that the more time a person sits on a toilet, the more it increases pressure in the anus area which causes the veins there to get engorged. He added that the pains experienced in the anus area cause piles.
In his words…
“When you sit long on a toilet seat, straining; this eventually increases pressure in your anus area which causes the veins there to get engorged. These engorged veins become painful, cause an itching anus and sometimes bleed. These are hemorrhoids/piles. This is what you call “Jedi”.
“Whenever you go to the toilet, Just shit and go. Don’t sit for long, Replying to your WhatsApp, Scrolling through IG and Twitter; All these are not good for you. Your phone acquires germs there. If you touch the phone and touch your mouth/put it in your mouth, you can have Diarrhea.”
