'Tablets to cure A(H1N1) influenza!'


“Don’t be fools by buying such ‘supernatural’ remedies from the market,” warned Federation of Indian Rationalists Association President Narendra Nayak.

In fact, it was a press meet organised by Nayak to create awareness among people on the exploitation of people’s superstition by fraud companies. Distributing sachets of sweet balls resembling tablets with a handbill claiming it as an effective treatment for swine flu, Nayak told reporters that people may buy such sachets of sweet balls even if a street vendor sells it claiming it as an effective medicine for swine flu. “Merchants of useless remedies and dubious concoctions take over the public minds and sell their unproven panaceas whenever a new disease comes along. This is what we see happening in our country now and then. Hence, people should not buy such products without verifying its scientific proof,” he added.
Physician Dr Srinivas Kakkillaya, Psychiatrist Dr Madhav Rao and Dr Sandeep were present.
