Lelong! Lai, lelong! Now selling medicine that can cure everything. From acne breakouts to cancer, whatever you have, it’ll be gone!
Yup. They got one thing right, at least. Whatever you have (in your wallet), it’ll probably be gone down the drain.
Now, before you laugh/scoff and hit me on the back of the head, there are people who believed in this.
So much so that the Health Safety Authority (HSA) has to come out and say: it’s #fakenews.
Riway With Deer Placenta
This is Purtier Placenta. It’s made from deer placenta which, according to Riway, is extremely compatible with humans.
They added that this Purtier Placenta, once taken, will cure you of enzyme, stroke, ageing (?!), cancer and any other pesky conditions.
There’s Even A Lab Report
So how does the company back up their claims?
Because let’s face it, they have tall claims.
According to the company, Purtier Placenta is a sort of ‘live cell’ therapy.
And they even have a 2008 laboratory report to prove their product’s usefulness.
Except, it’s reportedly for a test on heavy metals, and not human consumption as people might’ve believed.
HSA: Stop Or Face The Consequences
Well, now, HSA has pulled out all the stops.
They’ve issued a warning to Riway to stop their false marketing and to cease misleading their customers into thinking their products cure cancer.
They don’t, at least not according to HSA, which reportedly believed it to be an elaborate scam.
And their official warning made it to the papers.
And by the law, any sellers who make false advertisements like these can be jailed for up to two years and fined up to $5,000.
Is It A Scam?
Probably. Just do a quick search on Google.
While there are various forms of treatment for cancers, including chemotherapy, surgical therapy, etc, scientists are still searching for a “cure” for cancer.
And if a Singapore-based company is selling the real thing? You can be sure that their products will be snapped up, the company bought over and patented before my boss can ask, what’s for lunch?
Here’s The Rule Of The Thumb:
If a company
- Holds presentations to talk about sales
- Have expensive packaging
- Employs pushy marketers who will regale you with tales of other people’s experiences
- Show lab reports from 11 years back
They’re probably fake.
Because, let’s face it, if it’s a true cure for cancer? They won’t need to do all that.
