The Food and Drug Agency

Did you know that the FDA has been taken over by the pharmaceutical companies to "regulate" themselves? Would you be surprised to learn that the FDA does not protect you from drugs, medical devices and therapies that cause harm and death? 

Successful criminals use the laws, the police and the courts to squash competition. Under the guise of protecting the public, pharmaceutical medicine did this to exterminate "patent medicine" products while using patent laws to make billions, then trillions, as "science-based" medicine.  

Here is Mike Whitney on the topic at COUNTERPUNCH. Of course people who think like this — like me — are paranoiacs.

“Today we know that the risk of heart attack and stroke may occur early in treatment, even in the first weeks … “There is no period of use shown to be without risk,” says Judy Racoosin, M.D., M.P.H., deputy director of FDA’s Division of Anesthesia, Analgesia, and Addiction Products.”
In case you missed it: The FDA has just issued a warning on various prescription and non-prescription drugs that Americans ingest by the boatload. As it happens, these seemingly benign pain relievers can kill you even if you scrupulously follow the recommended dosage. But don’t take my word for it. Here’s a blurb from the FDA website:
“FDA is strengthening an existing warning in prescription drug labels and over-the-counter (OTC) Drug Facts labels to indicate that nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can increase the chance of a heart attack or stroke, either of which can lead to death. Those serious side effects can occur as early as the first few weeks of using an NSAID, and the risk might rise the longer people take NSAIDs. (FDA Strengthens Warning of Heart Attack and Stroke Risk for Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs, FDA website)
Notice how the FDA refers to “death” as “a serious side effect.” How’s that for an understatement? Here’s more from the FDA warning:
