The Digital Economy and Society Ministry has warned people against believing or sharing news and internet posts that claimed drinking papaya tea will have the same benefit as colon detoxification.

 

“The ministry’s Anti-Fake News Centre contacted the National Cancer Institute and the Food and Drug Association [FDA] to verify this information and was told it was false,” the ministry said.

 

“The FDA said that there was no evidence that drinking tea made from raw papaya will help eliminate fat or toxic substances from the body the same way a patient would benefit from a colon detoxification process, also known as 'colon detox'.

 

“Besides, there is also no evidence of benefits from using other liquids such as honey, tea, liquor, soap water or coffee, except water, in the colon detox process,” it added.

 

For further information, contact the FDA hotline at 1156 or visit www.fda.moph.go.th. To report any fake news, contact the website www.antifakenewscenter.com.

I don't believe anything the "anti-fake news centre" tells me, as they are themselves purveyors of fake news.

 

That being said, I certainly don't believe everything I read online as there are charlatans in both the mainstream and alternative spheres. I do my due diligence.

That's a let down, after I bought so much too.

For all the good it's done, I might as well have shoved it up my a.rse

Must be a two-pronged attack.

Certainly when I was "accidentally" given some of Madam's "only for Thai's" somtam there was a definite "clearing" initiated.

 

That was the liver flukes working their way into your bile ducts...

There is no such thing as detoxing a colon, so that's fake as well. There is only excrement in there and laxitives, softeners or enemas to get it out if needed. Your colon is not full of health threatening 'toxins' that need washing away. Mrs just bought a box of 'detox' powder at 700 baht for 10, you can get the same stuff for 199, only that does not come in a pink box with detox on it!

After a short chat to my colon we both agreed that the only cleanout required is a bunch of dubiously elected generals that are currently clogging things up🤔
