A Saudi Sheikh, Salah al-Luhaydan, has said that women in Saudi Arabia shouldn’t drive for health reasons. He says doing so could have negative health effects on their ovaries.
He claims that driving “could have a reverse physiological impact. Physiological science and functional medicine studied this side [and discovered] that it automatically affects ovaries and rolls up the pelvis. This why we find for women who continuously drive cars their children are born with clinical disorders of varying degrees.”
He went on to say that women should accordingly put “the mind before the heart and emotion and look at this issue with a realistic eye. The result of this is bad and they should wait and consider the negativity.”
