Samantha Ruth Prabhu's recent post about employing hydrogen peroxide nebulisation sparked an internet debate. A doctor recently lambasted the actress, calling her a "health illiterate". Samantha has also responded to his criticism in a lengthy article, urging him to be "polite".  

Samantha took to Instagram on Friday morning to deliver a lengthy statement in response to criticism from Dr Cyriac Abby Philips, often known as "The Liver Doc". The actress, who was recently diagnosed with Myositis, stated that she "merely suggested" the use of hydrogen peroxide nebulisation with "good intention" because it was offered to her by a "highly qualified doctor".

Samantha then questioned The Liver Doc, asking him to be nice. “It would have been kind and compassionate of him had he not being so proactive with his words. Especially the bit where he suggests I should be thrown in prison. Nevermind. I suppose it goes with the territory of being a celebrity. I posted as someone who needs medical treatment and not as a celebrity,” she wrote.

“It would have been nice had he politely invited my doctor, whom I have tagged in my post, rather than go after me. I would have loved to have learnt from the debate and discussion between two highly qualified professionals,” the actress added. She then assured the doctor that she would be careful with regard to sharing treatments online.

What did the liver doctor say about Samantha? 

Samantha recently came under fire from The Liver Doc for advocating hydrogen peroxide nebulisation. He referred to her as "health and science illiterate" and stated that the use of hydrogen peroxide nebulisation is "dangerous to health."

“Influential Indian actress Ms Samantha Ruth Prabhu, who is, unfortunately, a health and science illiterate, advises millions of her followers to inhale hydrogen peroxide to prevent and treat respiratory viral infections,” the award-winning doctor wrote on X.

“Scientific society, The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, warning people to not nebulize and breathe in hydrogen peroxide because it is dangerous for health,” he added.

The psychiatrist then urged a severe sentence for Samantha, stating that she should be imprisoned. “In a rational and scientifically progressive society, this woman will be charged with endangering public health and fined or put behind bars. She needs help or a better advisor in her team,” he wrote.
