Consumer advocates have asked the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) to put curbs on advertisements making exaggerated claims for healthcare products on cable TV. 

Kamchai Noibanchong, secretary general of Consumer Protection Association's office in Saraburi province, along with  networks from Ang Thong, Sing Buri and Ayutthaya,  filed a petition with NBTC member Supinya Klangnarong on Friday.

The groups are complaining that advertisements for health products make exaggerated claims about the properties of the products, and that  illegal advertisements are being broadcast on six cable TV channels.
