Comments for FDA General
9. Are there any regulations, guidance, policies, and practices FDA should change, in light of governing First Amendment authority? Regulating commercial speech at all is not the responsbility of the FDA. Present the evidence for or against in peer-reviewed scientific journal and then let the public decide for itself. But, don't require disclaimers on labels. And, don't be in the business of trying to regulate what appears on manufacturers labels. The private sector can do this just as well or better than the FDa. U.S. tax dollars can be better spent elsewhere, in my opinion.
