How the Drug War and the FDA Prevent the Sick from Being CuredSubmitted by fishyculture on Sun, 02/24/2013 - 22:01
"The simple fact may be that there are just too many treatment choices for any one person to know them all. Yet, sadly, in this nation of supposedly free people, we don’t have access to nearly enough of those treatments. The FDA has already decided for you that many of those treatments are unworthy of your time. They have done so despite evidence from other parts of the world that some of these work for some (or even most) people who try them. One might ask why an agency charged with determining the safety and efficacy of food and drugs would prevent proven cures from coming to market in the US, and one would be right to ponder this question long and hard and look into the matter deeply.
The answer, however, is really simple. The FDA doesn’t care about you. It doesn’t care about safety. It doesn’t care about food safety and it doesn’t care about drug safety."
