The Google Ads policy on unauthorized health products and pharmaceuticals changed in late January 2011. The policy prevents regulated health products unauthorized by regulatory or governing bodies from being advertised. The change affects all countries. We made this decision to protect users from health products not authorized by their local governments. The policy description has been updated to reflect this change.
