Q. I am a 20 years old student. One day a doctor came to our college to explain to us about dental care. He said that if you brush your teeth with a stick of pomegranate, then it can cause leprosy? Is this possible?

A.  Leprosy is caused by infection with Mycobacterium leprae and not by brushing with a stick of pomegranate. You can read more about Leprosy on our website.
