Comment: The way I understand it,

The way I understand it,

the government only requires the testing if the maker claims it prevents, treats, or cures something. It may be full of drugs, but if the maker makes no claims, there is no testing required.

In any case, the testing of drugs protects the makers from being sued out of business. It doesn't protect the public. Look at how many drugs make it onto the market despite all of the expensive testing, yet get recalled and become the cause of class action lawsuits. The government doesn't protect you, it protects them.
