Cancer and Depression

Regulations

It is popular and politically advantageous to oppose regulations and indeed regulations have often become excessive and expensive. Business objects to regulation for cost and impeding commerce. But regulations serve a purpose for safety and health. This should create the need to regularly evaluate regulations to determine if they serve the intended purpose. Unintended consequences happen all the time but real problems require attention. Medical devices are a case in point.
