Singer Adina Thembi, a Ghanaian-born South African artist with several honors, says she no longer likes to eat meat after being told she had a fibroid and having surgery.
“After having a fibroid removed from my body, I decided to give up eating meat. I did it because I examined it after surgery and found that it looked like flesh. During Hammer Time, Adina shared her story with Hammer Nti.
“I’ve been warned that eating red meat might increase my risk of developing fibroids; therefore, I really need to cut down.
She emphasized, “I haven’t eaten red meat since 2021; I have no idea whether that’s genuine or not.
Adina said that when a fibroid gave the impression that she was pregnant, she was a little worried about pursuing her singing career.
Fibroids are non-cancerous growths that form in or around the uterus, for the sake of teaching. The growths range in size and are composed of fibrous and muscular tissue.
They are also referred to as leiomyomas or uterine myomas at times. Since they don’t have any symptoms, many women are unaware that they have fibroids.
