ABSTRACT

According to the Constitutional Law, people have the right to be guarded by their country in matters that relate to public health and the country has the responsibility to guard the health of their people. Filtering bad products and setting a standard of testing the products in advance of public distribution is an important guarding activity of the country, which is executed through many regulations. Especially, Food and drug have the biggest effect on human health because they are used to influence the body’s physiological function. Therefore, there are strict regulations on them. The safety of ingredients of products is important, and providing information so that consumers can utilize this information properly is important as well. It is the label in a product that provides this important information. It is necessary to provide information about risks which are intrinsically included in a drug. Since the label is meant to be user friendly, the regulation on the drug label is very strict compared to other products. But, general consumers without professional knowledge about medicine and pharmacy have difficulty in understanding the risks and preventive method by using only the label. For that reason, the country forces experts to intervene between the consumers and the drug companies to protect consumers against potential drug risks. There have been 2 groups of drugs until the new system allowed for the selling of drugs in the CV store out of the pharmacy area. This means that there is no expert to protect the consumers against potential drug risks between the consumers and the new group. Eliminating experts intervening needs corresponding protection measures can be interpreted as discarding the country's duties towards people's health.
