Keerzijde van de FDA

FDA acquiring new powers to suppress alternative health

You may find it hard to believe that the FDA would follow this path when so many people are in need of natural and safe health options. Yet, the FDA is already working with Codex on an international basis to help establish risk analysis (toxicology) for dietary supplements. FDA scientists are heavily involved with the Codex Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses (CCNFSDU). In the upcoming meeting in Germany in Nov 2007 an FDA-supported plan will be presented in an effort to help establish the application of risk analysis to guide CCNFSDU to set "Safe Upper Limits" for dietary supplements. Safe Upper Limits, as currently viewed by Codex, are a public health scam; they are a politically correct strategy for branding dietary supplements as drugs based on drug-related risk analysis technology. The FDA and Codex goal is to remove therapeutically useful dietary supplements from the free market so they don't compete with drugs. Another goal is to make all useful nutrients into prescriptions to give Big Pharma a total monopoly on all health options.

FDA Knew of Avandia's Dangers Nearly Five Years Ago, Memo Shows

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) knew nearly five years ago about the dangers associated with the diabetes drug Avandia, an internal FDA memo shows. A study released Monday by the New England Journal of Medicine showed a 43 percent increase in heart attacks in people using Avandia.

Americans fed up with drug industry influence, FDA corruption, reveals remarkable Consumer Reports survey

More than four out of five Americans think drug companies have too much influence over the Food and Drug Administration, and 84 percent believe that advertisements for prescription drugs with safety concerns should be outlawed, reveals a striking new survey from Consumer Reports. The survey results, released today, are based on a telephone survey of 1,026 American adults conducted by the Consumer Reports National Research Center. They reveal the Food and Drug Administration to be alarmingly out of touch with the concerns of the American people.

Tyranny in the USA- The true history of FDA raids on healers, vitamin shops and supplement companies

brief overview of some of the campaigns of terror the FDA has initiated against natural healers, nutritional supplement companies and other organizations. Many were conducted using armed agents wielding assault rifles and automatic weapons, dressed in body armor. All of them were intended to destroy natural medicine, thereby protecting the profits of drug companies and conventional medicine practitioners.

FDA Ignored Cancer Risk When Approving Alli

In April of 2006, a group of doctors with Public Citizen petitioned the FDA to ban Orlistat and deny OTC status to the lower dosage version Alli, offering testimony that Orlistat raises the risk of both colon cancer and gallstones.

Researchers find deadly prescription drug effects 6 years before FDA

Northwestern University's national SWAT team of doctor sleuths called RADAR (Research on Adverse Drug Events and Reports) identifies deadly prescription drug reactions six years before the FDA and drug companies. RADAR also provides more comprehensive reports with important medical insights as well as guidance for prevention, diagnosis and treatment.

FDA and Drug Safety

Dr. Hellman states that everyone is interested in drug safety until it comes time to pay the bill. He calls upon the government, pharmaceutical companies, and research institutions to take a proactive role in the continuing evaluation of drugs after they receive FDA approval. Dr. Hellman concludes that we all have a shared responsibility for formulating a new policy to protect the public safety and to prevent future "perfect storms."

FDA Issues Its Strictest Health Warning on Two Diabetes Drugs

The decision comes more than a year after FDA safety reviewers strongly recommended just such a step, and it occurs amid a congressional investigation into why the agency delayed its warnings about Avandia for years.

The FDA Has Blood on Its Hands

For years, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) have continued to censor and engage in heavy-handed attempts to restrict access to supplements and educational information for Americans, even when courts have ruled the public has a right to information about dietary supplements and should judge the merits of health claims for supplements for themselves rather than having the FDA make such decisions.

When it comes to food and drugs, following the money is good advice

The FDA is still struggling with safety issues. Until it is adequately funded so that it can monitor ingredients from places as far away as China, Americans will wonder about the safety of their food and drug supply.
