British plastic surgeon Dalia Nield was recently quoted in a newspaper saying that it’s “highly unlikely” that a breast enhancement cream made by Rodial could actually increase breast size by 2.5 centimeters without the need for surgery. Rodial is threatening to sue Nield for libel.
Nield said yesterday:
"As a surgeon I am well aware of the necessity for claims on medical products to be based upon rigorous scientific testing, as well as the possible dangers which can result from treatments. It is my duty to speak out when products making these claims are not backed up by evidence."
We think it’s ridiculous that Rodial is threatening to sue Dalia for making these comments! While we’re not sure what the parameters are on free speech in England, to think that a doctor could be sued for expressing her opinion on a medical product is ludicrous.
If Rodial’s product actually works, then it won’t matter what one doctor says about it!
