One family man of 27 years of age having lean structure died leaving behind two kids of age 3 years and less than 1 year clinging on to their mothers arms who is also about 24 years of age.
Reason:
He got influenced by paper ads that some pills can magically change his lean & thin body to a well chiselled muscular body like a professional body builder. He bought one vial of the pills and consumed regularly. He died of serious cardio vascular failure, destroying the family's hope and aspirations.
Many such cases are happening across India in-spite of warnings from doctors and media is publishing such ads regularly, obviously run by ILL-Educated people who understand money, even it may be at the cost of life of people.
What GOI can do:

1. Media must be taken to task by GOI and advertising of all such poisons must be banned so that they do not appear in media (Print & Electronic) at all. Not only that, these products should not appear in a different name in a different package.

2. GOI must force manufacturers to stop production of above items & if done, the unit must be closed indefinitely.
The Petition was also marked to:

Two actions might solve these issues - 01. Policy of what authorization and certification is required to publish what type of information for general public. 02. Tracking all such advertisements and links by a special intelligence departments and linking with their "mother" establishments then punishing the culprits. more

All advertisements should be banned. more

The GOI should monitor such Advertisements and all misleading advertisements should be weeded out (of course with our help in reporting such misleading advertisements) with heavy penalty on such advertiser, endorser and the ad agency. There should be some system of rewarding the complainant as well to enthuse people to be proactive. more  
Aug 30
Not only these advertisements, all advertisements which are far from practical usage, just for advertisement fake information should be avoided more  
Aug 30
Most of the health related advertisements are misleading and they prescribe particular medicines like tablets or liquid, without the doctor examination or diogonasis. Without proper advise from a medical practitioner it is not wise use medicines. Hence, advertisements should be allowed to use medicines. more
