• Are we still being protected by the FDA?

    By -

    Like in most cases involving the FDA, a government agency (FDA) is not really doing its job in protecting the interest of the public, poisonous products that are out in the market today are FDA aproved. There are in fact a lot of food and medicine in the market today that contains a high level of toxins mixed in their products, thou these contaminant should not be allowed to be displayed in the market place, but because they bare the approval of FDA, they were able to sell their goods everywhere, their product is definitely not fit for human consumption.

    How many times a huge pharma were caught concerning their product having a harmful component that has the potential for the consumers to get stroke or heart attack? Despite the threat it imposed to the public, nobody went to jail for this issue. If the government is indeed committed to protect its people, then why are we seeing GMO products, high content of toxic substances in medicine in the market? Does the government received money from these huge pharma so that they can get away any time if their product fails and does harm to people without accountability? I am beginning to think that the fines that the government is receiving from huge company, is a form of bribery. The truth is nobody from these huge pharma goes to jail if they ever commit a federal offence.

    Robert P. Blankfield, MD, MS, a clinical professor of family medicine, issues this call to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in an editorial published recently in an online edition of the Journal of Cardiovascular Pharmacology and Therapeutics; the print version of the article is expected to appear this autumn.

    The editorial notes that several medications survived FDA scrutiny, only to be pulled from the market after reports of increased heart attacks and strokes related to use of the drugs. These include rofecoxib (Vioxx), valdecoxib (Bextra), and sibutramine (Meridia). What these drugs have in common is that they raise blood pressure. Other medications approved by the FDA, including some antidepressant medications as well as medications used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, also raise blood pressure but remain on the market despite inadequate safety data.

    At issue is the apparent disconnect between what patients and doctors might consider “clinically significant” risk …

    If we can’t trust the agency (FDA) about the safety of our food in and out of the market, then what we can do is to learn how to do it on our own, chemical driven foods are widely distributed anywhere around the world, we are infested with products that are made in the lab. It’s about time to go green and subscribe to organic food so that we can insure healthy diet.
