The Attorney General of the Union (AGU) has obtained, in court decision relieves the National Health Surveillance Agency (ANVISA) to require manufacturers of mouthwashes with alcohol in its composition, packaging include warnings about the risks of cancer due to frequent use.

According to the AGU, Anvisa studies have shown there is danger of developing the disease using the product.

The decision to require product manufacturers to include warning on the package came from the Federal Public Ministry, after disclosure of an Australian study that linked the prolonged use of alcohol rinses with the appearance of cancer of the mouth and larynx. The MPF asked, in court, that Anvisa oblige companies to include information on the packaging warning about alleged health risks.

By acting in defense of ANVISA, the attorney general Federal 1st Region (PRF1) and the Federal Prosecutor in the Agency (PF / ANVISA) explained that the RDC 211/05 of ANVISA only releases the commercialization of this product after completing requirements to prove their safety, quality, effectiveness, terms of use and warnings necessary.

Federal prosecutors also stated that the Technical Board of Cosmetology (Catec / ANVISA) has reviewed the research and concluded that there are sufficient grounds to support the claim. According to the AGU, they remembered that the body always seeks to protect people's health and that there would be any omission or negligence of ANVISA.

The 7 th Circuit Court of the Judicial Section of the Federal District, following the arguments of the AGU, denied the request of the MPF and acknowledged there is no facts to prove the alleged risk.
