Shouldn't Newspapers be Ethically (or Legally) Bound Not To Sell Ads Like These?

This advertisement (continued below) wasn't published in a tabloid. Nope, it appeared coast-to-coast in Canada's Postmedia newspapers late last week.

And I'm honestly curious, shouldn't there be a law, or at the very least a corporate policy, that would preclude the printing of this sort of predatory nonsense?

(For a review of the efficacy of Garcinia cambogia, here's a recent meta-analysis).
