  1. Majority of the Indians do not aware about the lethal effects of allopathic medicines. When we believe the Doctors whose professional is a noble one, they also prescribe such banned medicines. What is the solution for this? Will they stop prescribing such banned medicines when the market is so lucrative and money earning machine for them?
