Two things to ponder this fine morning:
1. Informed Consent. The legal definition is as follows:
(Noun) Consent given only after having been informed of the facts, benefits, risks, and alternatives.
You can read more about the origins of Informed Consent here: https://malcolmmackillop.com/informed-consent-law-history/ but the gist of it is this: It is part of the “Patients Bill of Rights” giving them the pros and cons (often the part left out in patient care, or read really fast or given in really small print) so an informed personal decision can be made in an individual’s personal health situation.
2. What exactly is the job of the FTC (Federal Trade Commission)? Answer: To protect the consumer from false or harmful advertising.
Kudos to the state of Kansas for actually doing what a good government should be doing….. protecting the welfare of their citizens by banning jab advertisements on television (hopefully, they will extend this to print and radio too!).
False advertising is actually a crime. Unfortunately, that crime is overlooked when the ones committing the crime are also the ones making the rules.
Know you rights. Do the research….. and don’t do it on Google (because you won’t find what you’re looking for. Use search engines that are not controlled. “Brave” is one of my go to’s)
You are the only you you’ve got!
