Why can't the US manage this?

Over in the UK, a group in charge of monitoring ads has panned one that implies magic oils can cure caner.

Wouldn't this be great if we could get rid of all the bunk that makes claims completely unsupported by the evidence and, even worse, pose serious health risks for the benefit of those snake oil salesmen?

We should have these groups, but the UK is at least wise enough not to give religious groups a free pass. Fortunately, with the convictions of parents that murder their children by denying them treatment for simple illnesses, or to "get the demons out" becoming more frequent, the US may finally be moving in the right direction.
