The FDA continues its campaign against unapproved drugs by ordering companies to stop selling about 500 prescription remedies for cough, cold and allergies. The move mostly affects small drugmakers and products first marketed before 1962, when the FDA was charged with reviewing drug safety and effectiveness.

"We don't know what's in them, whether they work properly or how they are made," FDA drug compliance director Deborah Autor said in a telephone news conference (as quoted by the New York Times).

They're just eliminating the small guys. Kinda like the police and DEA arresting small time drug dealers. Eliminating the competition.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

Tis true, the legal cartel are making a few hits sad2.gif They are going to go after natural supplements soon just as they have in Europe.

They are not banned here, its just that most companies that buy and refine natural herbs cant afford the mountain of tests and a staff of scientists to prove the products claims of health benefit, so big pharma keeps the supplements out of stores.

The EU has gone out of their way further big pharmas agenda, but so does Obamacare.

This is unbelievably dumb.

The FDA has an interest in whether drugs are safe.

Effectiveness is in the eye of the beholder.

They should perhaps ban placebos as they're shown to be effective in some cases as well. coffeetime.gif

This is one of the reasons we should eliminate the FDA and turn the inspection functions over to the USDA (which is only interested in whether products look good and won't kill you).

I'm in the "wont kill you" corner there, the FDA has failed the US miserably. No doubt it should be eliminated, and I see all kinds of signs those in the FDA are pwnd by big pharma, all kinds of foxes guarding those hen houses.
