Self – Hat is a Mutha ????

I would like to tell Famous folks out there if you do not like your skin tone and proceed to bleach it please do not use the “popular” Vitiligo as your excuse. I think it’s a slap in the face to people who ACTUALLY have to deal with the disorder.

What is vitiligo, and what causes it?

 Vitiligo (vit-ill-EYE-go) is a pigmentation disorder in which melanocytes (the cells that make pigment) in the skin are destroyed. As a result, white patches appear on the skin in different parts of the body. Similar patches also appear on both the mucous membranes (tissues that line the inside of the mouth and nose), and the retina (inner layer of the eyeball). The hair that grows on areas affected by vitiligo sometimes turns white.

Doctors don’t know why this happens but

 The most widely accepted view is that the depigmentation occurs because vitiligo is an autoimmune disease — a disease in which a person’s immune system reacts against the body’s own organs or tissues. As such, people’s bodies produce proteins called cytokines that alter their pigment-producing cells and cause these cells to die. Another theory is that melanocytes destroy themselves. Finally, some people have reported that a single event such as sunburn or emotional distress triggered vitiligo; however, these events have not been scientifically proven as causes of vitiligo.

Now that you have been educated on Vitiligo, I can now tell Dominican Baseball player and steroid abuser Sammy Sosa to go to hell with that Lame ass excuse.
