Injections for skin-whitening treatment could kill you!

By FARRAH NAZ KARIN and ALIZA SHAH December 24, 2016 @ 2:25pm

The demand for glutathione-laced products is on the rise. KUALA LUMPUR: HEALTH authorities have warned against the use of injectable skin-whitening products that contain glutathione — a chemical used in cancer treatment. Expressing concern over the current trend in the cosmetics and beauty industry, where glutathione is the ingredient of choice, they cautioned that unregulated use of the chemical can pose serious health risks, and to a certain extent, death. Doctors said the abuse of glutathione, commonly prescribed to cancer patients to help them cope with the side effects of chemotherapy, has been linked to several fatal skin disorders in many countries. Glutathione is a substance produced naturally by the liver, which can also be found in fruits, vegetables and meat. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) told the New Straits Times Special Probes Team that the public should refrain from skin-lightening injections as they pose significant safety risks. The Philippines FDA said the alarming increase in the unapproved use of glutathione administered intravenously as a skin-whitening agent has resulted in several serious health cases. Hospital Kuala Lumpur dermatologist Dr Azura Mohd Affandi also cautioned against using the chemical, as improper and unsafe injection practices can lead to communicable diseases. “Those who administer these injections could be beauticians who are not trained in medical practice. “Worse still, the equipment used may not even be properly sterilised and can cause bacterial infections, hepatitis and even HIV.” She added that another major concern with the haphazard administration of glutathione into the body via injections is the creation of air embolism, where air bubbles enter the veins or arteries, causing a blockage that leads to shortness of breath, or worse, death.  Sustained injections of glutathione into the body, she said, can also cause the liver to stop producing the substance naturally.  (4485-H).

BLACK MASSACRE O!-Survivors Of 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre Share Eyewitness AccountsMay 19, 20211 Heard on All Things Considered

May 20, 2021

See Audio, Pictures on link below

Viola Fletcher, the oldest living survivor of the Tulsa Race Massacre, tells a congressional hearing: “I have lived through the massacre every day. Our country may forget this history, but I cannot.” Jim Watson/AFP via Getty Images The day that a white mob came to Greenwood Avenue in Tulsa, Okla., Viola Fletcher was just 7 years old. During emotional testimony on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, Fletcher, who is now 107, recalled her memories of the two-day massacre that left hundreds of Black people dead. “I will never forget the violence of the white mob when we left our home. I still see Black men being shot, Black bodies lying in the street. I still smell smoke and see fire. I still see Black businesses being burned. I still hear airplanes flying overhead. I hear the screams,” Fletcher told lawmakers. “I have lived through the massacre every day. Our country may forget this history, but I cannot.” LIVE UPDATES: PROTESTS FOR RACIAL JUSTICE Tulsa Searches For Victims Of 1921 Race Massacre At New Site LIVE UPDATES: PROTESTS FOR RACIAL JUSTICE Oklahoma Lawsuit Seeks Reparations In Connection To 1921 Tulsa Massacre Fletcher and two other survivors of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre, her younger brother Hughes Van Ellis and Lessie Benningfield Randle, testified before a House Judiciary Subcommittee on Wednesday nearly 100 years to the date of the massacre. Some historians say as many as 300 Black people were killed and another 10,000 were left homeless. Greenwood was destroyed by the attack that was launched on May 31, 1921. The country is currently grappling with systemic racism laid bare by the coronavirus pandemic and the killings of George Floyd and other Black people in encounters with law enforcement. The same committee that heard from the survivors has also been studying reparations for the descendants of millions of enslaved Americans and recently advanced a bill that would create a commission to study the lingering effects of slavery. Fletcher and other survivors are calling for justice. “I am 107 years old and I have never … seen justice. I pray that one day I will,” she said. “I have been blessed with a long life and have seen the best and the worst of this country. I think about the terror inflicted upon black people in this country every day.” Survivors of the massacre are plaintiffs in a reparations lawsuit filed last year. The lawsuit argues that the state of Oklahoma and the city of Tulsa are responsible for what happened during the massacre. Van Ellis described the multiple unsuccessful attempts by survivors and their descendants to seek justice through the courts. “You may have been taught that when something is stolen from you, you would go to the courts to be made whole,” he said. “That wasn’t the case for us.” “We were made to feel that our struggle was unworthy of justice, that we were less than the whites, that we weren’t fully Americans,” testified Van Ellis, who is a World War II veteran and wore a U.S. Army hat at the hearing. “We were shown that in the United States, not all men were equal under the law. We were shown that when Black voices called out for justice, no one cared.” He called for the remaining survivors of the Tulsa Race Massacre to be acknowledged while they are still living. “Please, do not let me leave this Earth without justice, like all the other massacre survivors,” he said, as he finished reading from prepared remarks. Each of the survivors raised the question of what Greenwood could have been today. POLITICS House Lawmakers Advance Historic Bill To Form Reparations Commission “Even at the age of 100, the Tulsa Race Massacre is a footnote in the history books of us. We live it every day and the thought of what Greenwood was or what it could have been,” Ellis said. Lessie Benningfield Randall, who testified over video conference, said the effects of the massacre are still felt today in Tulsa. “My opportunities were taken from me and my community. Black Tulsa is still messed up today. They didn’t rebuild it. It’s empty, it’s a ghetto,” Randall, who is now 106, said. Randall said she not only survived the massacre, but she has also now survived “100 years of painful memories.” “By the grace of God, I am still here. I have survived to tell this story,” she said. “Hopefully, now you will all listen to us while we are still here.” Correction May 19, 2021 A previous version of this story incorrectly said the three massacre survivors testified on Tuesday. The hearing was on Wednesday.

Naomi Campbell

Naomi Campbell welcomed her baby girl in a heartfelt post she shared on Instagram and Twitter celebrating her entry into motherhood.

The 50-year-old supermodel shared a sweet photo cradling her daughter’s feet in her hand with the caption, “A beautiful little blessing has chosen me to be her mother.”

Several of the fashion industry’s most famous names congratulated Campbell in the comments of the post, including Marc Jacobs and Donatella Versace.

“So honoured to have this gentle soul in my life there are no words to describe the lifelong bond that I now share with you my angel,” the model continued. “There is no greater love.”

Who is the father of Naomi Campbell’s baby?

Campbell showed no signs of a baby bump in her social media posts over the last number of months and has yet to disclose any information about the baby’s father and whether he will be involved in her and her daughter’s life.

That said, theories about the identity of her baby’s father are already beginning to surface.

Campbell’s most recent public relationship was with Liam Payne.

Campbell doesn’t appear to have had any public relationship since she was linked to One Direction’s Liam Payne.

The pair had a short-lived fling that began late in 2018, before parting ways in early 2019.

Given the timing and Payne’s current relationship status — he is engaged to model Maya Henry — it seems unlikely he is the baby’s father.

Prior to that, Campbell was involved with British grime star Skepta.

In 2018, it was rumored that Campbell was pregnant with Skepta’s baby.

The pair appeared to go public with their relationship in March of that year after speculation dating back to 2016. However, the British GQ article some saw as an announcement of their relationship status didn’t go as far as to confirm the talk of romance between them.

Then in July, Skepta shared an image of a sonogram that was labeled “Baby Adenuga.” Skepta’s real name is Joseph Junior Adenuga.

However, Campbell shut down pregnancy rumors when she posted a bikini photo that showed no signs of a bump.

The pair are believed to have broken up around this time but continue to show support for one another on social media from time to time.

Skepta later revealed he and a partner he dated prior to his rumored relationship with Campbell had tried to have a baby together for a long time.

And briefly following her rumored breakup with Skepta, Campbell was thought to be dating Nigerian rapper Wizkid.

The notoriously private supermodel never gave an official statement on the rumors of her relationship with Wizkid. And if they were together, there seems to be no specific information available on when they broke up.

Of course, none of that has kept his name from being floated as the potential father of her baby.

Others are speculating Campbell’s daughter may be adopted or may have been carried by a surrogate.

Campbell has not revealed how her daughter was conceived but has previously opened up about not feeling confined to taking the stereotypical route into motherhood.

Campbell kept the impending arrival of her newborn private until now, but she has made no secret of her desire to have children in the past.

In 2017, she said, “I think about having children all the time … But now with the way science is I think I can do it when I want,” appearing to reference surrogacy, IVF and other reproductive options.

Some people feel the presence of what appears to be a hospital arm band around Campbell’s wrist In the photo she posted indicates she was present for the baby’s birth.

“Looks like she was present for the birth by the arm band,” one Redditor wrote. “I would guess she used a surrogate with her own eggs as freezing them has been LA popular for so long & she’s been talking about wanting kids forever. Yay! Good for her. That baby’s gotta be gorgeous!”

Campbell, who resides part-time in Kenya, has also discussed being open to the idea of adoption, having spent time meeting children from orphanages in Africa.

At the time, she appeared undecided regarding whether or not she would prefer to adopt or have a biological child.

She did, however, state that she didn’t plan to become a single parent. Campbell was raised by a single mother and grandmother after her parents split while her mother was pregnant.

“I do want a father figure,” she said. “I think it’s important.”

In 2019, when asked about having children Campbell said, “Not yet — I’ll see what the universe brings me.”

As a woman who has dominated the modeling industry for decades, Campbell’s openness towards non-traditional motherhood reflects a changing world where women aren’t held back by the pressure to become a mother at a certain age or to sacrifice their career for parenthood.

We wish her and her new baby all of the best.
