The FDA made a video explaining why you need to be careful as some products could cause harm and if they don’t work, then you have wasted your money too. Below is a link to other FDA/FTC actions taken with company advertising, some maybe not as serious, but we want truth in advertising. BD
Company Advertisements Get Caught Making False Claims And Are Called to Task And So Much of This Activity is in Healthcare

U.S. regulators announced Tuesday that they were cracking down on unproven treatments being sold for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
The Food and Drug Administration and the Federal Trade Commission announced steps to remove products from the market that make “unproven claims to treat, cure, and prevent” STDS.
The FDA and FTC said they had sent “multiple letters” to companies selling the products warning them that the products violate federal law.
The products, including Medavir, Herpaflor, Viruxo, C-Cure and Never An Outbreak, are sold online and in retail stores and claim to treat a range of STDs, including herpes, chlamydia, genital warts, HIV and AIDS. But they have not been evaluated by the FDA for safety and effectiveness, the agencies said.
