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