Health Director-General Tan Sri Noor Hisham has come out on social media to address irresponsible parties who use his image to sell their products.
He uploaded two photos, first the edited version which appears to be badly edited with the DG somewhat holding two boxes of “Sugar Friends Tea” along with the caption “New treatment for lowering blood sugar appear surprisingly!”.
Dr Noor also posted the original photo which is actually a picture of him holding the sixth edition of the “Managing of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus” book that was launched earlier this year, according to reports from The Star.
Although he posted the photos and said that his image was misused, Dr Noor didn’t mention about taking legal action on those who are responsible.

“It’s a handsome man’s burden”
Netizens were quick to react to the post, with some pointing out that this usually happens to good looking folks where their photos will be misused for advertising and marketing purposes.
Meanwhile, others were a bit more stern, urging the Health DG to sue the irresponsible parties so that they will learn their lesson.
Unkempt in both stories and appearance, Hakim loves tech but tech left him on read, previously he used to write about tall buildings and unoccupied spaces that he can't afford, and legend has it that he still can't afford it to this day
