More tough warnings on false ads

The Ministry of Information will today send a series of warning notices to radio and television stations over food and makeup ads that exaggerate health benefits.

Requested by the Ministry of Health, the letters are part of a bigger scheme to crack down on products that falsely tout medical benefits as well as the outlets that carry their ads.

In the letter, officials stress that “those products have not been checked and approved for the quality, safety and effectiveness by the Ministry of Health.”

The products in question are a handful of foods, creams and supplements that make questionable promises. Among the 13 listed in the letter, which are still being advertised on three TV and two radio stations, are “Beautibusti”, “Hair Grow Up” and “Slimness”.

Pharmacist Chou Yin Sim, secretary of state at Ministry of Health, and the signatory of the notice, told the Post yesterday that the ministry was concerned about people confusing the products for legitimate medical fixes.
