The cause of existing regulation is due to the historical and modern widespread use of quackery for marketing and profit with nutrients, medicinal remedies, dietary supplements, drugs, and surgical procedures for the unlicensed treatment, prevention, management, and cure of the causes of diseases and health-related conditions.
Anything is Used for Quackery
During the 1900's 2000's, quacks use everything from food, herbs, dieting, supplements, recreational drugs, search engines, lobotomies, strange electronic devices, energy beams, and pseudo-scientific jargon.
Government Regulation to Stop Quackery
Because of lack of private interests' investment, allopathy's practical scope was greatly reduced with the exclusion of eclectic medicine and the passing of the Food and Drug act of 1906 and the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act of 1938.
Food, herb, supplement, drug, and device quackery were outlawed in 1938, with the Federal Food Drug and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA). This is because many allopathic and eclectic medical doctors sold concoctions of various drugs, herbs, foods, and alcoholic beverages as miracles for the management and treatment of many diseases and health-related conditions, especially to vulnerable people.
Supplement Quackery is Official with DSHEA 1994
An important amendment to the FFDCA called the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) 1994 further clarifies and defines dietary supplements as a type of food, while prohibiting their medical usage and medical approval.
