Don’t believe it?
Then what do you make of this report published in that oracle of truth, the Borneo Post?
State’s very own cure for cancer
A herbal compound for cancer treatment could soon be mass-produced by Sarawak. Ministry of Planning and Resource Management deputy permanent secretary Datu Len Talif Salleh said the state had so far raised 300,000 seedlings of the herbal plant that contains the needed ingredient.
Full report here.
Len adds that the ministry is currently working together with the Sarawak Biodiversity Centre and the private sector to develop the herbal planting sector into another major revenue source for the state.
If the Borneo Post can engage in such reporting based on the statements by a Sarawak Ministry of Planning and Resource Management official, is it any wonder then that many Malaysians have a hard time believing what the paper has to say about the marginalised Penan?
Is Len saying Sarawak developed some herbal cancer remedy on its own without recourse to US FDA and Ministry of Health approval?
Since when does the Sarawak Biodiversity Centre have the authority to “develop” a product touted as a “cancer treatment” remedy as a “major revenue source”?
Since when does a Planning and Resource Management Ministry official have the expertise to even talk about the potential efficacy of any cancer remedy?
