Is the FDA Cult of Tyranny?

There is a new film out regarding the FDA and the possible tyranny they are engaging in with pharmaceutical companies. The video is very convincing and something it appears we should all, as responsible and concerned citizens – at the very least – listen to and consider.

The video says that 6 million is spent daily on lobbying for drugs – that’s chilling. They state that drugs are often approved simply based on who has the most money. In other words, safety and efficacy may not matter a whit to the FDA.

Speaking of drugs, pay close attention to ads for prescription pills. Listen to the long list of side effects. There are two drugs currently advertising that actually list cancer as a possible side effect.

Yet, the FDA approves these drugs. The pharmaceutical companies make a fortune. Then people get sick or worse. Lawyers get in on the action and file huge lawsuits. People may win a little – if they are still alive. Lawyers get most of those fees.

So who is the big loser in this mess? We are, the little people.

“The thing that is most disturbing is that people think the FDA is protecting them. It isn’t. What the FDA is doing and what the public think it’s doing are as different as night and day”. – Herbert Lay, M.D., former FDA Commissioner
