I would like to talk about Chemistry, about medicines and very specifically about the laws that the people make to organize the different dispositions that a country has in order to protect the population’s health. My interest in Chemistry in to know, to study and to apply the knowledge about something we call Sanitary Regulation or Health Regulation. The importance that this discipline has is that provides order and organization. As well as all the laws that people make, this laws provide freedom and the most important issue is that we can be sure that there’s a law that offers safety to the population when it is about consuming medicines or any kind of chemical supply.
