Statistics have it that men read more in the toilet than women. If you are one of those who are fond of reading newspapers, novels and so on, while in the toilet, then be careful because doing this can cause you piles. This fact has been found out through a research carried out by the doctors of Banaras Hindu University (BHU).

According to Dr. Ajay Khanna, when people spend too much time sitting in toilets, less pressure is created in their external hemorrhoid, which leads to piles. Therefore, in the work of five minutes, people should not spend more time.

While sitting long in toilets, the external hemorrhoid remains open for a long time that affects the rectum. This causes piles. People who eat excess junk food, chicken, mutton, fried stuff and drinking less water are at greater risk of getting piles .

Apart from piles, another disease one is exposed to by spending so much time in the toilet reading is what Dr.David Gutman, founder and lead physician of Advanced Hemorrhoid Specialists, calls “Hemorrhoids.”

Hemorrhoids are derived from anatomical structures called anal cushions — like small balloons — embedded within the wall of the anal canal. When abdominal pressure is increased, these cushions instantly fill with blood to form a hydraulic seal to help prevent leakage. And if the anal cushions become stretched out or get irritated, they are called hemorrhoids and can cause bleeding, itching, pain, and the protrusion of tissue through the rectum.

So before you go into the toilet next time with piles of newspapers and novels to read, think again.
