I was very shocked to read an article about saree cancer in`The times of India`. It warns women who wear saree regularly. It says if the saree petticoat is tied in the same place everyday it can cause irritation along the waistline which may result in scaling or pigmentation. They may turn malignant. The doctors advise saree wearers to tie petticoats looser or change belt type petticoats which reduce pressure in the area. The level at which they tie sarees should be changed frequently. This is not the case with those wearing pants because the pressure is spread over a larger area.
