Google bans apps promoting false health tips or banned medic
Google has announced ban on android apps promoting misleading health tips or selling/marketing of banned medical substance.

The updated Google developer policy has clearly stated it will be removing all such apps that “promote or sell unapproved substances, irrespective of any claims of legality.” The ban shall be applicable on apps that sell unapproved or misleading pharmaceuticals and supplements.

Google has also mentioned that any “non-government approved products that are marketed in a way that implies that they're safe or effective for use in preventing a particular disease” will also get banned. Any content related to alternative medicine or medical procedures not approved by government will also be removed from play store.

The ban by Google targets heavily on apps that sell or markets products containing ephedra or human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in relation to weight loss or control, or when promoted in conjugation with anabolic steroids.
