Abu Dhabi health experts issue herbal product warning for UAE

Health experts in Abu Dhabi have urged residents to exercise caution when using herbal products and oils, and seek advice from qualified physicians before use, instead of relying only on the advice of beauticians and parlour attendants, Gulf News has reported. "Herbal products are highly perishable and improper storage can cause harmful fungi and microbes to grow on them. Residents who frequent parlours must therefore be careful when deciding on the use of a product that is not familiar," said Fathiya Abdullah Al Marzouqi, head of awareness at Zayed Complex for Herbal Research and Traditional Medicine.
