"…..the MHRA, and the bodies that came before it, are serious regulatory bodies that are engaged in serious business, checking that medicines are safe, and that pharmaceutical companies do not make unreasonable claims. They brought in the Yellow Card System as a response to things like Thalidomide. And here their credibility is, in my mind, undermined. This change will be exploited by quacks to suggest that their treatments have received tacit endorsement, as has happened many times before." A critical commentary on the new regulations from Ben Goldacre, MD (Bad Science)
