Egypt’s Prime Minister Hisham Qandil lectured a committee this week on the necessity of clean breasts.
In an emotional rant the prime minister talked of the connection between dirty breasts and diarrhea.
Al Arabiya reported:
The PhD holding prime minister who studied water resources, somehow, related the lack of clean water to the lack of clean breasts in one speech. While meeting with his cabinet members he spoke in an emotional manner as he recounted the struggle of the villagers he witnessed on his trips as a minister.
He narrated his experience as a middle-class Egyptian who traveled to the rural areas of the country where he saw the suffering of newborns having to deal with diarrhoea after being breast fed.
The prime minister claimed that the reason behind the diarrhea epidemic in rural Egypt is that some female villagers are too ignorant to clean their breasts before feeding their babies.
And, there you have it.
Your friendly hygiene tip for the day.
