Issue Areas/Comments
Please prevent drug companies from using pseudo-science to promote their products. Specifically, put an end to the ads that use the completely unproven "chemical imbalance" theory to promote antidepressants.

If the FDA can't prevent such false advertising, it has failed to fulfill a large part of its mission and loses credibility.
