What Was Said About Samantha by The Liver Doc?

Samantha was recently criticized by The Liver Doc for suggesting hydrogen peroxide nebulization. He described her as "health and science illiterate" and said that nebulization with hydrogen peroxide "is dangerous for health."

The renowned physician wrote on X, "Influential Indian actress Ms Samantha Ruth Prabhu, who is, unfortunately, illiterate in science and health, advises millions of her followers to inhale hydrogen peroxide to prevent and treat respiratory viral infections."

He continued, "The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America and Scientific Society are cautioning people not to inhale hydrogen peroxide through nebulization as it poses a health risk."

The physician then wrote in his tweet that "This woman will be charged for risking public health and either fined or imprisoned in a sane and scientifically advanced society. She needs assistance or an improved advisor on her team."

According to an article published in PubMed Central, inhalation of hydrogen peroxide may produce acute pneumonitis distinct from what has been described previously with chronic inhalation.
