IMA warning

Our Bureau

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The State unit of Indian Medical Association (IMA) has warned against indiscriminate use of Chinese and Korean medicinal preparations which, it is claimed, would provide instant relief for certain diseases.

The IMA State Secretary, Mr T. Suresh Kumar, said in a statement that such preparations have been found to contain traces of heavy metals which can cause damage to kidneys and blood vessels.

IMA has decided to take stringent action against those members who are found to be involved in peddling of these hazardous drugs.
