Why shouldn't the FDA have unfettered ability to regulate the content of labels on health products?

The FDA doesn’t have absolute control because, as a federal agency, it is bound by the dictates of the Constitution and the First Amendment. Generally, the content of labels is considered to be at least a form of commercial speech that merits a degree of First Amendment protection.
