I'm trying to make a controversial title but the answer is really easy - it is because we ain't got enough knowledge. Where exactly to get that knowledge? How to get updated? Easy peasy lemon squeezy! Just do what I did - get a degree in Pharmacy.
I mean it.
Ok, it's a joke.
I thought it would be good to write about pharmacy stuff - sort of getting in touch with my root. Stay tuned as I share a bit of my own insight on this issue, common fraud and how to be medicine savvy.
It has been for quite some time that Malaysian has been flooded with all kind of health product claiming to do all kind of things. From getting fairer and glowing skin to generally get healthier as our body somehow can overcome all kind of health problem we used to have.
If you pick up any sense of sarcasm do tell because I want to sound as unbiased as possible.
Anywho, the weirdest thing would be the one that gets us taller because biologically - no one can get taller past 18 years old. We can only get shorter when we reach old age.
If anyone thought my title is misleading or some kind a clickbait - since I wrote medicine even though these products do not claim to be medicine, well I beg to differ. Lots of these products actually do contain medicine which in turn get you some positive result. This is what we call an adulterated product.
To make things worst these products cost a fortune and I personally met some elderly who bought these and only Allah knows how my heart drops because old people's is just so precious. How dare people manipulate and scammed them! Not only people are losing money, these extra ingredient use should be monitored by a certified health practitioner to ensure you're using it safely or else you are risked for an overdose! You are actually putting your health at risk.
Just check HERE for all the adulterated product Ministry of Health (MOH) have successfully detected so far.

Both dexamethansone and chlorpherimane can be used to reduce allergy reaction i.e. the itchyness and runny nose.
But it only works to stop the symptoms, not improving or curing it.
