DAVAO CITY (MindaNews / June 29) — Distributors and manufacturers of alternative medicines classified as “food supplements” have agreed to subject their advertisements to a review prior to airing or printing in the media, the Bureau of Food and Drugs office here said.

Arnold Alindada, an inspector of BFAD told reporters on Thursday that advertisers of the food supplements have entered into an initial agreement for a review of their advertisements following complaints of deceptive promotions in the media.
