Drink Clean Water
Jaundice can spread through contaminated water; hence, it is recommended to avoid drinking infected water or drinking water from unhygienic places. Prefer drinking boiled and filtered water.
Consuming alcohol is like a poison that moves towards slow death and affects the liver. Alcohol consuming people are prone to diseases due to a weak liver. Jaundice can be prevented by avoiding or reducing the levels of alcohol intake.
Obesity can promote Jaundice occurrence. Intake of fatty foods can raise blood cholesterol levels that can increase the risk of gallstones development. Moreover, fatty foods increase the risk of fatty liver and liver damage.
Proper exposure to Sunlight
Jaundice in newborn babies can be prevented by bringing them in contact with sunlight. A newborn baby’s skin will absorb sunlight and break down the bilirubin that causes Jaundice. Phototherapy is one of the most important treatments for Jaundice.
