‘WHO WILL PROTECT NIGERIANS FROM THIS ABUSE: 'ONE TABLET CURES LARGE PROSTATE, PROSTATE CANCER, DIABETES, ENDOMETRIOSIS,etc'?




Dear All,

A few days ago we shared SUN Newspaper Advertisement , which every medical doctors should have understood was an abuse and misinformation about prostate disease. / cancer. It came from ‘FOR TREATMENT and DELIVERY, enquiries call Dr. Paul Torty, The
C.E.O of the Saints Herbals, and The Saints Medical Foundation. Phone Nos. 08037140368,08038824033, 08051625888, 08038824033, AND  08083860575. Presently we are in Lagos, and  Enugu, call now. Distance is no barrier wherever you are in Nigeria. Integrity, Honesty and Trust are our watchword  Email:  paultorty@yahoo.com.   Website: www.drpaultorty.com. ’
Paul Torty claimed that the product ‘PROSTALYN HERBAL’ cures multiple conditions from ‘staphyloccocus to prostate cancer (a male only condition) and endometriosis ( a female only condition)!
He claimed that the product is FDA USA and NAFDAC Nigeria registered. In the USA
Prostalyn is a Saw Palmetto dietary supplement for maintaining urinary function and prostate health , no where is it recommended as cure for Prostate Cancer!

We repeat the question that we asked during the earlier posting: ‘WHO WILL PROTECT NIGERIANS FROM THIS ABUSE: 'ONE TABLET CURES LARGE PROSTATE, PROSTATE CANCER, DIABETES, ENDOMETRIOSIS,etc'?
What has NAFDAC got to say about this claim that Prostalyn is registered by it? And what is it registered as, Food supplement or Drug? Surely the standards/criterion for either registration are miles apart!

Prostalyn is said to be a 'food supplement', but Paul Torti is now misleading Nigerians by advertising it as a drug / medicine. Furthermore, Paul Torti claims that the founder of the product is David Hoffman. In our search,

no where on the internet can we find a bio on him, nor his own website, nor a list of his qualifications


The lack of enforcement of extant regulatory laws in our country is what gives the likes of Paul Torti the boldness not only to practice his quackery in dark shadowy places but to carry an advert in a National Daily Newspaper. He even claims that his customers include elites from the National Assembly. Well, well any Nigerian can feel free to exercise his / her right to contact any quack for medical treatment if only they were not the same elites who literally refuse to do something about strengthening the Health System in the first place!

Paul Torti has posted his multiple phone numbers, name of his work place, and towns where he can be found. We hope seriously that the authorities that have the responsibility to protect Nigerians from people like him ( Paul Torti) and many many others in the quackery industry in every state of our country will now do the rightful and dutiful. AND Fast too.!

The Federal Ministry of Health must act to remove any 'confusion' in the Laws that embolden more and more so-called Alternative healers / Traditional herbalists / Naturalists to cross the line and begin to practice orthodox medicine without the requisite training, certification, ethical and professional checks and balances. Too much damage and too many deaths arise from this unchecked business.

Is Paul Torti a medical doctor? If he is not, why should he be able to carry on as if he is one? If he is a medical doctor, he should know better than advertising his wares in Newspapers – and Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria ( MDCN) over to you!!.

Surely, health is too serious a matter for all Nigerians to be left unregulated for this long. Nigerians deserve much much better.

Joseph Ana.
