Google announced Friday it will no longer accept ads for “unproven or experimental medical techniques,” including most stem cell therapy, cellular therapy and gene therapy.
No longer will Facebook accept ads for 'unproven or experimental medical techniques' like most consumer-marketed stem cell therapy, gene therapy, and cellular therapy you see promoted on social media in 2019.
In an announcement on Friday, Google said the fringe health ads will be banned because the company has seen “a rise in bad actors” exploiting people with “untested, deceptive treatments.”
Some of these quack treatments can kill, blind, or otherwise permanently harm the patients who use them.
In a post explaining the new policy, Google said, “these treatments can lead to dangerous health outcomes and we feel they have no place on our platforms.”
The new policy prohibits ads for treatments that have “no established biomedical or scientific basis.”
