#AskDrMalik: DOES SCRATCHING RECHARGE CARD CAUSE CANCER?

 SCRATCHING RECHARGE CARD CAUSE CANCER

QUESTION: Does scratching recharge card cause cancer? Does scratching recharge card coating with fingernails cause cancer?

ANSWER:

If you want to scare anyone, tell them a particular thing causes cancer; and you can make them do anything you wish…and you will look like a “knowledge-god”!

I see many people sending broadcasts on bbm and whatsapp about cancer, without verifying!

And several health blogs, erroneously, write articles about cancer-causing things or situations!

There’s absolutely no known way that scratching recharge cards coatings with your finger-nails would cause cancer. Forget about all the “Silver nitro oxide” talks you read on the Internet! The coating on recharge card is not made from a substance called ‘silver nitro oxide’. In fact, there is no evidence that such a compound even exists!

The substances used in making recharge cards coating are safe and not carcinogenic. It doesn’t cause cancer; so, feel free!

But, how and why do people form such lies?

Anyways, scratch with your nails, if you so wish. And enjoy scratching!

You’re safe!
