Khat chewing and liver cirrhosis in Somaliland:case series

Postby weydamal » Fri Oct 06, 2017 10:31 am

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4992185/

This study examines the relationship between khat chewing and liver cirrhosis among khat chewers on Somaliland. Cirrhosis is usually caused by excessive alcohol consumption, but this study finds a causal link between khat consumption and hepatotoxcicity,, which is unusual. The individuals who were examined denied that they had consumed alcohol, but admitted that they were regular consumers of khat.

If this study is corroborated and epistemologically sound, this is one more reason why khat should be banned in Somalia and among Somalis across the world.

Loooooool a study based on 8 people. What kind of a fucked up sample is that? 8 people in Borama who chew Qaad and deny the fact they are drinkers isn't science its Suugo Science.

"In the same study a much larger sample:
Ardouin found no chronic liver disease in 204 liver biopsies among heavy khat users
"

You quoted this study to disparage isaaq you been a typical qurjiile faqash who claims we occupy your land lol. But you never thought one will read the paper.

Well I did and 8 people in Borama is a small sample all 8 could be drinkers. And this liver disease isn't limited to alcohol alone as you quoted.

"Cirrhosis is a complication of liver disease which involves loss of liver cells and irreversible scarring of the liver. Alcohol and viral hepatitis B and C are common causes of cirrhosis, although there are many other causes."

Busted.
