PGH doctor debunks Callamard’s claims that shabu doesn’t cause brain damage
United Nations (UN) special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary, and arbitrary killings Agnes Callamard tweeted on May 5, 2017 (Friday) quoting a certain Prof. Carl Hart that “there is no evidence Shabu leads to violence or causes brain damage #Philippines drug policy forum”.
To add to that, she also tweeted that drug effects are “exaggerated” to meet the personal interests of police and scientists.
As her claims were hotly debated over by netizens, Philippine General Hospital Dr. Teddy Herbosa debunked Callamrd’s tweets by saying that, “I disagree. I headed PGH ER for years. Cases of psychosis associated with Shabu. I guess Prof Hart has no actual experience”.
Herbosa backed up his claims when a certain netizen named Wen inquired for any studies to support that shabu does induce psychosis by sending the link which can be read here http://academic.oup.com.ln.is/jvk5I
Herbosa’s experience and studies gave credence to his claims which prompted social media personality Edwin Jamora to express that medical doctors are more credible in discussing the drug issue,“We don’t listen to quack doctors. We listen to real doctors like Dr. Ted Herbosa,” Jamora said.
Jamora noted that Herbosa’s experience is rooted in his medical practice while Callamrd is merely a “wanna-be with zero experience”.
“”Dr.” title is PhD in Political Science and she will lecture us one drugs?! Puh-leeze!” Jamora added.
