BANNED MEDICINES

 

Please Read Very Carefully- INFORM ALL YOUR FRIENDS & FAMILY MEMBERS

India has become a dumping ground for banned drugs; also the business for production of banned drugs is blooming. Plz make sure that u buy drugs only if prescribed by a doctor (Also, ask which company manufactures it, this would help to ensure that u get what is prescribed at the Drug Store) and that also from a reputed drug store. Not many people know about these banned drugs and consume them causing a lot of damage to themselves. We forward Jokes and and other junk all the time. This is far more important.

Please Make sure u forward it everyone u know.

Thanks for posting such uncommon but important facts affecting public health.In India health awareness among public is very low . Even educated persons purchase medicine influenced by  brand name / advertisement  without looking its composition (i.e generic / scientific name of the chemical ) and side effects.

Thank you so much of sharing like this information.

People show interest very much on all unnecessary information rather than information which is very useful like this.

Thanks lot brother......
