The FTC is Cracking Down on Which of These Homeopathic Remedies?
- Colloidal Silver
- Ginko Biloba
- Turmeric Pills
Answer: All of the above
The FTC announced it would place tighter restrictions on over-the-counter homeopathic remedies.
In order to continue selling to consumers, manufacturers would have to prove the safety and efficacy of the remedy.
According to the FTC: “An [over-the-counter] homeopathic drug claim that is not substantiated by competent and reliable scientific evidence might not be deceptive if the advertisement or label where it appears effectively communicates that: 1) there is no scientific evidence that the product works; and 2) the product’s claims are based only on theories of homeopathy from the 1700s that are not accepted by most modern medical experts.”
