The Food and Drug Administration wants to regulate Internet search.
At the least, searches that are mediated by regulated medical companies, and tie disease keywords to specific, regulated medical products.
The issue has come to the fore in a warning letter that FDA recently sent to Medical Doctors Research (MDR), a Florida-based researcher and manufacturer of nutritional supplements.
In the January 29th letter, FDA alleges a number of problems with MDR’s manufacturing and promotional activities. But the one that’s catching attention is the FDA’s beef with MDR’s website.
