‘Doctor’ offers cure for diabetes in 72 hours, invites Minister

Cure for Diabetes Type-I and II in 72 hours, three steps to be heart attack-proof, insight into the science, commerce and arts of diabetes, and finally the launch of a book titled ‘Why mortality rate drops when doctors go on strike?’ are among the issues Dr. Biswaroop Roy Chowdhury shall discuss during his talk show scheduled for June 20 at the Siri Fort auditorium.

Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain is believed to be the chief guest for the event.

City doctors, meanwhile, are concerned about how this “fraud” is being allowed and why Mr. Jain has agreed to be part of this “illegal activity”.

The Delhi Medical Association has now written to the Health Minister warning him about allowing and participating in such events. Dr. Anil Bansal, chairman of the Delhi Medical Council’s Anti-Quackery Cell, said, “What is being allowed is illegal. People should be warned against such activity. There is no cure for diabetes. The man claims to be the author of 25 books and is offering cure for an incurable disease.”

In medical science, there is no cure for diabetes. However, it can be managed, or even prevented, by eating well, exercising and maintaining a healthy weight.

The State Health Minister’s Office has denied receiving any invitation for the event.
