Those who take these “medicines” advertised on the Internet but not tested in Hungary are putting their health at risk

– said Pap Judit.

Be careful, as doctors do not advertise medicines

– he warned.

As an example, he mentioned that a foreign company is one with Gyula Kincses, president of the Hungarian Medical Chamber (MOK). published a fake interview, in which the doctor talked about the beneficial effects of a non-registered preparation for the treatment of blood pressure complaints.

They were also abused With the name and photo of Péter Álmos, the vice president of the chamber also when a product is advertised on a website deceptively similar to a working internet portal, which promises to eliminate high blood pressure and “cleans the blood vessels”.

The IOC continues to emphasize that

Chamber officials do not promote any drugs, legal or illegal. All such advertisements and information are false and untrue.

In a similar way, a fake news story was published on the Internet With the name and photo of György Acsády, professor of vascular surgery at Semmelweis University illustrated.

An unregistered product for the treatment of diabetes is being advertised with his name, despite the fact that he never dealt with the treatment of diabetes

– indicated Pap Judit.

In all three cases, they advertise the product on a website operated on a foreign server, and then try to persuade the customer to order as large a package as possible over the phone, he added.

Semmelweis University regularly informs the public about cases where fraudsters misuse the name of the institution’s doctors, and the university also always draws attention to the fact that consumers should only purchase medicinal products from a licensed place in Hungary, from a legal source, after consulting their doctor – reads the announcement.
