I don't like Herbal Wash Xtra and the people selling it

Of all the abusive scumbags we deal with the lowest of the low, the very worst, the most despicable are those that abuse people concerned for their health.

Let's confront the big issue, the "elephant in the room".

We're in Botswana and HIV/AIDS is a big issue for us. That's why I get particularly angry when I see anyone advertising treatments or cures for anything to do with the immune system.

Like these scumbags who advertise on Facebook.

Herbalwash claim that their product, "Herbal Wash Xtra" "has been designed to detoxify the Liver, kidneys, Bladder, and all vital organs, purify the blood and boost the immune system."

To be fair, they go on to say that it's useless. They say that to "describe the active ingredient, you can take your pick. However, the truth is that there is no particular active ingredient."

Nevertheless they claim that:
"Herbal Wash Xtra will pull toxic metals out of your system,detoxify your blood leaving it free of viruses and bacteria. Herbal Wash Xtra encloses the toxins in its revolutionary nano-sized (that's 1 billionth of a meter)particles, Once enclosed, these toxins are rendered harmless and then your body can naturally dispose of them."
In case you're wondering, the technical description of these claims is (forgive me for using technical jargon) bullshit.

The fact that it contains "no particular active ingredient" doesn't stop them from making amazing claims, suggesting that it "is effective in managing" a range of conditions including tumours, eczema, bladder infections, skins conditions, migraines, arthritis and (get this), "various cancers" and HIV/AIDS.

Of course advertising such a product in Botswana would be illegal because it would be making claims outlawed by Sections 396-399 of the Penal Code, wouldn't it?

I wonder what exactly their local agents are selling?

Nothing illegal I hope?
