NBTC to crack down on questionable food supplements, starting with cordyceps

The National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) announced on Wednesday that it is tying up with the Food and Drug Administration to hunt down those who have been falsely advertising food supplements since 2018.

 

NBTC chief Perapong Manakit said the initial focus will be on supplements made from cordyceps sinensis, which have been presented as a cure-all, especially for kidney disease.

 

In Thailand, cordyceps sinensis (known in Chinese as chong cao) supplements are particularly popular among the elderly.

 

However, according to a January 12 post on the Rural Doctor Society’s Facebook page, cordyceps can actually suppress kidney function.

''Hunt Them Down''.  If they are advertising them for sale there shouldn't be any need to Hunt them.

 

Shame they don't find the same tenacity to 'Hunt down' the real criminals and abscondee's like the Red Bull excuse for a Human Being !
