Ewedu soup can cure Ebola-LUTH Consultant

When Ebola found its way to Nigeria, there were claims that bitter kola could cure those infected, then another viral rumour asked people to drink and bath with salt water.Both claims were classified untrue by the Ministry of Health.Now, a Luth consultant claims Ewedu cures Ebola.

According to PMnewsProf Adebukola Adefule Oshitelu, aprofessor of Ophthalmology from the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), is claiming that the plant Genus Corchorus found in Ewedu soup, has the unique ability of curing the feared Ebola Virus Disease.She said this at the 2014 African Traditional Medicine organised by NAFDAC at Ikeja, Lagos state.
According to Oshitelu,
The qualities inside Ewedu is so much that it will kill Ebola by preventing the virus from replicating and destroying more organs in the body. This would immediately stop the symptoms such as high fever, stooling and vomiting. Ultimately, leading to the cure,The way it will be prepared will be different from the normal way they cook it. It should be washed and rinsed with liquid vinegar, afterwards blend and cook with drinkable water. No salt, potash or seasoning should be added, take 25cl of the concoction a week and it would boost a persons immunity so that they become impregnable to the virus,However, In a statement made by the Director General of NAFDAC, Paul Orhii who was represented by the Director of Laboratory Service, Stella Denloye, NAFDAC said it has banned illegal advertisement of herbal products and bogus claims of cure for diseases.
Unpatriotic Nigerians who continue to engage in illegal advert of their products and those making false claims not evaluated by NAFDAC should desist from acts misleading the unsuspecting public. I want to warn and inform them that NAFDAC would deal decisively with anyone found to contravene,
