    I heartily encourage everyone on here to watch Burzinsky its on netflix instant stream, and it confirms what I and many people believe that the FDA doesn't actually hold the health of the american public as its main priority.

    No, the FDA has the health of pharmaceutical companies as it's main priority. We currently have the best government money can buy.

    The same could be said of the AMA and scads of practicing physicians. Funny what having a stock portfolio full of big pharma will do to the objectivity of a supposed professional.

    Our health care system is broken from the FDA down to the neighborhood clinic and extending into research and development. I say that having worked in healthcare for years and am currently studying in health care to extend my degree. Remember that just like credit cards, they don't want you so unhealthy you can't pay them nor so healthy you don't need them. Chronic illness and chronic debt keep them rich and us trapped.

    Then you are well-aware of the diagnostic and treatment protocols that make no sense; unless the objective is to sell prescriptions, instead promoting a long-term healthy status in the patient.

    The part where it talks about how their way of handling any drug not created by a pharmacutical company is to create false propaganda really upset me.

    I mean to have a compound that works incredibly well to fight most forms of cancer (which they know it does as proved by them stealing birlynski's patent) and stop it is absolutely monstrous and horrible.

    I have news for you, that's the farthest thing from the truth.

    I'm not sticking up for the FDA in this case but the the FDA and pharmaceutical companies go at it all the time for delaying drugs, not approving drugs. I'm sure big pharm hates the FDA.

    It seems to me they only ban sale of pharmaceutical drugs if there is overwhelmingly numerous negative cases against any particular drug. Otherwise I wouldn't see so many class action lawsuits advertised by lawyers on my television.

    Yes and I am also aware of how pharmaceutical companies court doctors, effectively taking over the role or educating our doctors about new drugs. When your doctor offers you a pill consider that the company that makes it probably sent him on a trip to Hawaii to 'learn" about the drug and it's effects. Then go home and use your local library to access peer reviewed studies and research it yourself.

    A lot of the drugs that you see on lawsuits ads on TV are still on the market, they just change one little thing and rename the drug. It costs over a million dollars to get FDA approval, they don't just stop making it once they have paid the FDA. They figure settling lawsuits is cheaper then making a better drug. There is way to much profit loss in removing a drug that is dangerous. Sometimes they keep it on the market by adding more warning labels........

    Big pharm has a habit of hiring people out of the FDA. There are good people in the FDA but there are cronies and many people who can be bought.

    I'm not talking about ecigs, just the FDA in general. There are no easy solutions.

    Even with the rules in place about 230,000 Americans die and 2.3 million spend time in a hospital as a result of adverse reactions to prescription and/or nonprescription drugs. The same side effects also generate annual healthcare costs in excess of $200 billion. Over 50% of all drugs entering the market have a severe adverse reaction that no one knows about other except the drug company. Imagine if there were no regulations.

    The FDA doesn't perform the tests- we know this with e-cigs. They rely on drug companies to perform their own tests. Fox in the hen house.

    If you want the FDA to perform their own tests, you'd have the expand the FDA. With people screaming about big government, doubtful that will happen. So, it is what it is.
