Eating Burned Food For Lepers?
, for lepers. Is burned food prohibited for people with leprosy? Thank you in advance.
Hello Mamahsahal, Thank you for the question.
Leprosy or Hansen's disease is a Mycobacterium leprae infection that attacks the skin, peripheral nerves, mucus walls of the upper respiratory tract, and eyes causing skin sores, nerve damage, muscle weakness, and numbness / numbness. The bacteria are passed from person to person by coughing splashes or sneezing. This disease is not transmitted by coming into contact with sufferers, having sex with sufferers, or from pregnant women to their babies. A leper can be cured with antibiotic treatment for 6 months to 2 years. Basically there is no prohibition on the consumption of specific foods for people with leprosy because this disease is not influenced by food consumption.
Please advise the patient to undergo treatment according to the doctor's recommendation. In addition, you also suggest covering your mouth and nose when coughing or breathing so that they are not transmitted to other people.
Hope this information is helpful.
