Long Time Coming.. But is it Enough ?

Finally the FDA steps in and decides to start policing one of the most corrupt organizations going, itself. Less than this type of collusion is what got Martha Stewart thrown in minimum security. For decades physicians and others who have been paid and otherwise compensated by pharmaceutical companies, have been on FDA panels and advisory board that approve the use of that pharma companies new drug after a trial. That sounds kind of fishy doesn't it.

If you want a really good book out there that is current and details this corruption and how far it extends and how it can affect your health go here and here. Just for qualification, this does not mean that I believe there is not a time and a place for pharmaceutical intervention but I believe it to be rare and in very specific circumstances.

Patient heal thyself with knowledge :)
