FDA - Die, Slaves

"The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has gone to court to prevent the Colorado-based firm Regenerative Sciences from using stem cells developed in one part of your body (bone marrow) to repair damage in other parts of your body, such as joints. The FDA objects to the fact that these cells are chemicals, the use of which they have the power to regulate even though the cells are taken from your body to later be injected back into your body.'

As a very astute commentor posted, a woman has the 'right' over her body to abort a baby, but we don't have the right to use parts of our body to fix other parts of our body.

Next the FDA will say you can't fix broken bones because they can't regulate the chemicals that mend those broken bones.

I just pray that when Ron Paul is President he'll severely curtail the role of the FDA if not outright abolish it.

FDA: Your body is a drug

FDA’s New Claim: “Your Body Is a Drug—and We Have the Authority to Regulate It!”

"1. Stem cells are drugs and therefore fall within their jurisdiction. (The clinic argues that stem cell therapy is the practice of medicine and is therefore not within the FDA’s jurisdiction!)
2. The clinic is engaging in interstate commerce and is therefore subject to FDA regulation because any part of the machine or procedure that originates outside Colorado becomes interstate commerce once it enters the state. Moreover, interstate commerce is substantially affected because individuals traveling to Colorado to have the Regenexx procedure would “depress the market for out-of-state drugs that are approved by FDA.”"

The protectionist

branch for Big Pharma doesn't want competition. As usual, the state runs interference for their buddies by regulating the people and what might benefit the people to protect their cronies. Can't actually cure people, there's more money to be made keeping them sick, MAKING them sick and TREATING them.

Get rid of it

FDA is thoroughly corrupt top to bottom. Dismantle it.

FDA - Die, Slaves

When reading this latest position of the FDA, in regard to 'our right' to what our body process creates to serve its own health needs, one feels the impression of a science fiction script. Sound reasonableness has been replaced by manipulative reasoning and rule interpretation. WE THE PEOPLE ... have reason to feel OUTRAGE... this total lack of regard for individual welfare and well being must be STOPPED!! Yes, we can share our dismay in this forum, but the word must be brought directly to our legislative representative. They must hear a strident voice from the public, not just promise of favor from the drug/big-pharma enterprise that continues to serve its profit motive above the well being of the populace. Our message of objection must be known far and wide and within every legislative chamber. The implications of this proposed control by the FDA are indeed horrific!!

That is totally ridiculous

That is totally ridiculous and should be completely unacceptable; however, the dumbed down huddled masses of this sick, so very sick society will just go along with it in complete and total complacency without even a whimper of protest about such lunacy. The worse part is even if they -the dumbed down huddled masses- did object, the only solution they could even possibly consider would be to hire different people at the FDA; the idea of eliminating the FDA entirely escapes them because they have been propagandized to believe that the government actually cares about them.
