Women advised against excessive alcohol, drug intake


Dr Bettina Ama Buohene Andah, a medical doctor has counseled women to desist from excessive alcohol and addictive drugs intake due to the potential dangers they posed to their general health and well-being.

She said the growing trend of young and adult women, taking to binge alcohol and drug use, including bleaching creams, either for the ecstasy of it or to stimulate the appetite for comfort eating, to beat off stress, was alarming and needed to stop if women desired to live long.

Dr. Andah, also the first ever female personal physician of the ex- president Agyekum Kuffour during his political administration, gave the advice during this year’s Woman to Woman (W2W) ‘Abrabopa’ regional forum, held at the Grace Baptist Church, Amakom in Kumasi, at the Week-end.

The programme, an offshoot of the popular TV3 talk show, hosted by Akosua Ago Aboagye, working with the Peace FM, is held once annually in four regions of the country.

It brings on a common platform the country’s women of substance with diverse backgrounds, to enable them share their experiences in all spheres of life, all to aid women empowerment.
