The health hazards caused by Kobayashi Pharmaceutical's products are increasing.

Since it is causing the worst outcome of death, a thorough investigation of the cause and countermeasures must be taken.

This is a major incident rarely seen in history, with its repercussions spreading overseas and threatening to shake trust in Japan's health industry.

As our company's core business is healthcare, we are also paying close attention to this incident.

Supplements are basically nutritional supplements and cannot be expected to have the same effect as a drug on their own. With the advent of a product called FOSHU, we can now claim its effectiveness to some extent, but I don't think there is any evidence.

It does not require as rigorous clinical trials or evidence as it does for drugs. As for side effects, they have not been confirmed in clinical trials, so it is unclear what risks there are, and in a sense, there may be more risk in taking it than in taking the drug.

Medications are necessary for disease treatment, so if the benefits outweigh the side effects, they must be taken.

Most of the time, supplements are taken by ordinary people who have no medical knowledge and do not consider the risks.

It is not prescribed based on the advice or examination of a doctor.

In other words, it is a product that you take every day for a long period of time, completely trusting the manufacturer's advertising.

The components of the supplement are



・Base material

・Coloring agent



Many people do not know that the majority of the weight of supplements is made up of ingredients that normally do not need to be ingested.

Naturally, over time, these ingredients oxidize and deteriorate.

I think this incident should sound the alarm about the people's delusional use of supplements.

We pray for the repose of the souls of those who lost their lives in this incident. We pray for the speedy recovery of those suffering from health problems.
