2/ Research was advertised as @WHO certified product on visual, print and social media. This was fraudulent practice. Which has now been corrected


Comments on @PubPeer which the authors have to clarify, the editorial board must review and come clean.
If not, this calls for further scientific rigor

More comments from @EdzardErnst blog on #Coronil for #COVID19 weak #RCT with ?faked data and cherry picked results.
12/ New Update on #RCT study on #Coronil by @PypAyurved for #COVID19

Patient clinical data seems fake

They mention only ONE patient had hypertension, but ranges show that > 1 patient must have had it

This is concerning


@nimschairman please comment
14/ Follow this thread by @BhavinBVasavada highlighting MORE methodological flaws - this paper was probably published becoz of its GOLD OPEN ACCESS option - wer
authors pay lakhs to the journal/publisher to feature the paper free for others to read.

On 18.12.2020, computer engineer @FitTuber shared @YouTube video titled "10 Safe & Useful Ayurvedic Tablets to Replace Allopathic Pills (Instant Relief)". The drugs he promoted were by @baidyanathgroup, not sure if it was paid promotion. I bought them:
10 drugs, details, batch numbers R given in pic👇. All by @baidyanathgroup exept 1 by unjhaayurvedicpharmacy.com
We did GCMSMS, ICP-OES and FTIR analyses on these samples. Here are my 10 safer modern medicine alternatives 2 @FitTuber's untested, potentially harmful #Ayurvedic drugs
Kanthsudharak Vati by Unjha Pharma
@FitTuber: 4 sorethroat, cold, cough
Analysis: Lead 0.54 mg/kg, Cadmium 0.4 mg/kg, Thallium 0.71 mg/kg and industrial phenols.
Low values, but not ideal.

Safe alternative: Levocetrizine & non-sedative cough syrup Levodropropizine

Before I go into results, I must say this was overwhelming. There was SO MUCH the lab identified, impossible to put everything here. So I made a summary. At the end of this thread, I have linked a full analysis described in Excel format. Some results were VERY concerning

I followed @FitTuber advise and got all these #Ayurveda medicines which he outright claimed are '#safer', ''#effective' than conventional prescription drugs for day to day use. These will be tested for #safety first - will undergo GCMSMS, ICP-OES and FTIR analyses.
I looked at packaging and found interesting (poor regulation, absurdity), #quackery, #pseudoscience based descriptions like this:
Malaria - caused by parasite
Dengue - caused by virus
Typhoid - caused by bacteria.
One tablet to rule them all. Reminds me of lord of the rings.
This particular #ayurvedic tablet is good for indigestion, hyperacidity and THEN - like a @starwars hyperspace jump 🤯SCABIES🤯. How? Why? What is the mode of action within this very broad range of 'symptoms to disease'. You know this medicine is #fraud.
Also check out 'etc'🙅‍♂️

Ok this is interesting #livertwitter #MedTwitter
26 yr old woman with jaundice+severe itching (a.k.a cholestatic hepatitis). Routine causes - viruses, prescription drugs, autoimmune liver disease blood tests - neg. No #ayurveda or #herbal drug use. Mysterious🤔
Liver biopsy👇
#pathology expert says its #drug induced liver injury. But patient denies any drug use. She has #PCOD - polycystic ovarian disease (mayocl.in/34S2LMh) and hence, #overweight.
Deep dive into history again - says she's taking #vitamins for weight loss! Asked to show👇
Can you identify the culprit component that caused this woman's severe liver injury? #Pathologist is right! #PathTwitter
