Description

The story investigated 1,500 health apps sold on the iTunes and Google Play stores and uncovered hundreds of apps that claimed to cure or help disease, despite no medical evidence that these treatments would work. It disclosed that one out of five apps claimed to treat or cure medical problems - exactly the sorts of apps that the FDA is arguing should be regulated. It was reported and written by NECIR reporter Rochelle Sharpe and published in the Washington Post and on the NECIR website.
