Truth In Advertising

In an effort to quell the spread of health misinformation, social media company Pinterest is thwarting the capacity to make vaccine-related searches on its platform.

All I want for Christmas is for people just to tell it like it is in medical advertising in all its forms. Promise nothing more and nothing less than what they, their institution or product actually do or mean. Stop the selling.

Nothing elicits a surge in my skeptic meter like the term world-renowned when used in the medical realm. Especially since it is typically self-described by those selling something, routinely an unnecessary product or procedure.

Gwyneth Paltrow's lifestyle company, Goop, may think that the products they sell are helpful but others disagree.
