Middle Eastern scientists have announced that henna tattoo is life-threatening

A number of experts from several hospitals in the UAE conducted a study, which revealed that women in the Gulf region have an unusually high incidence of leukemia. And this despite the fact that this disease usually affects men. What is it about?

It has been suggested that blood cancer is caused by traditional henna tattoos used as body art. Representatives of the weaker sex actively use tattoos to decorate the feet and wrists, back areas, nails and even the face. It is known that henna tattoos are washed off a few days after application, so they provide a lot of scope for artists' fantasies.

However, solvents for these tattoos use benzene, which has long been considered a harmful substance. The use of benzene for cosmetic purposes is banned in a number of developed countries, but it is still actively used in the Gulf States and Asia.

The most disturbing thing for us is that henna tattoos are very popular, including among Russian tourists visiting Asia and the Middle East. After all, many of us do not know about the dangers of this type of body art.
