How do you all feel about the FDA, whom regulates our food and drugs of course, being in bed with and receiving funds from the corporations/companies that produce the products they're supposed to be regulating? That's a flawed system if I've ever seen one. Every other drug commercial on TV is followed up a year or two later with one of those commercials ran by law firms talking about how your loved ones died from taking it. How can drugs be released to the public that aren't even tested for a long enough period to know what they will do? If people start dying from taking a medication only 1 year after its released to the market and approved by the FDA, doesn't that mean they didn't even test it for a whole year before approving it? Or at least not thoroughly enough...? So are they regulating drugs or just pushing them through because of a monetary incentive from the company that produces them?

How about this stuff on sea food that's imported:

I just found this article searching for some info about the other part of my post, but I've read similar reports / information from numerous other sources...

 

The article claims that less than 1% of the seafood imported is inspected, yet over half of what is inspected is turned down / does not pass the inspection because of salmonella and other disturbing factors. So quite possibly over 50% of the 99% of seafood imported that's not inspected could be below the standards of the FDA and make it's way to our dinner plates. How ya'll feeling about eating shrimp right now? 

 

I'm not sure if this type of corruption counts as a conspiracy but it's certainly not something that's discussed openly to the public. I think the FDA needs to be shutdown and restructured in a way that actually considers the health of the American citizens...What about you?

I would be happy to see the FDA completely shut down. I don't think they protect the public one bit, but there is ample evidence of the crony-capitalism practiced there and in every government regulatory agency. Shut them all down!

The government just uses these agencies to pick the losers and winners, and this is done by BOTH parties. A free market would be just fine at punishing businesses that sell faulty or damaging items or substances. Would you buy from a company that sold poison? Me neither. They would be out of business on word of mouth alone, if the government did not sanction them and play favorites. End crony-capitalism (aka crony-socialism) NOW!  :D

My personal issues with the fda is how they are in bed with the tobacco industries. We all know that the carcigens in cigarettes are deadly. And that cigarettes are more addictve than most street drugs. They also do more damage over all to your body than marijuanna. And this does not even take into account the second hand smoke. So why does the fda not ban cigarettes? Because they are making way to much blood money from the big wigs in the corporations.

 

And as far as the pharmacutecal drugs, it is well known that the fda is in this for a profit. They do not give a crap who gets hurt or killed because of these drugs that have not been tested thorougly. The window to test these drugs and then actually hit the population used to be way longer than a few years. Now it is a mad dash to mass produce these drugs and get them out to the pharmacies. It is all a money making political game. At the expense of innocent people.

I would not like to see them shut down, but the agency certainly needs to be overhauled. The many cases where lawsuits are filed, based on drugs causing serious damage to people. Cigarettes continuing to give people cancer, but still allowed on the market. Yet they want to ban e-cigarettes, which are said to help people stop smoking. It makes no sense at all.

I agree with artistry in that the FDA needs to be overhauled as opposed to being shut down. It has two opposing roles. The FDA is also beholding to the major corporations. This puts it at odds with its role of protecting the public health. The FDA needs to focus on public health and nothing else.

The health care industry has one objective, and that is to increase profits. This includes drug and pharmaceutical companies, medical and health associations, charities involved in raising money for research (for the past 100 years there have been many natural cures for cancer that have been suppressed; no money can be made if cancer is cured).

 

In the 1920s, Dr. Royal Raymond Rife invented the most advanced microscopes of his time. He also developed a new technique called "Coordinative Resonance" which was able to destroy cancerous tumors as well as viruses. In clinical trials performed in 1934, Rife's treatment was tested on 16 terminally ill cancer patients and within 3 months, all 16 were cured. Soon afterwards a laboratory testing Rife's technology was burned down. Through the efforts of Morris Fishbein, MD, head of the Journal of the American Medical Association, Rife was essentially shut down and ruined. His brilliant and promising work, all but forgotten.

Drug companies are lying to us about cures. Drugs do not cure diseases, they only suppress symptoms, which causes the body to do unnatural things and be completely out of balance. Manufactured drugs cause disease, they do not cure diseases.

I wish I knew what to make of the FDA.  It does seem as if they allow themselves to be led around by drug industries more so then protecting the individuals they are suppose be looking out for.  Its a sad state of affairs, because as pointed out above some these drugs should probably never have been on the market.  Yes, its hard to determine what the long term effects of a drug are going to be in a research study.  But some of these adverse effects aren't happening over time but it seem like within months of the drugs coming onto the market.  I remember when I worked for a new website, I did an article on the fact that there was a diabetes drug that was placed on the market by the FDA despite some negative feedback about it.  This bothered me a great deal because it led me to wonder just how many drugs the FDA was allowing to slide by regardless of negative research studies.  Apparently quite a few if recalls are any indication.

Completely agree. If it wasn't for the money the tobacco industry was tossing them, there would be no cigarettes. It's crazy how people still use these, or even how they are still legal, knowing what they do to you. It's obvious somebody is being paid, and there is no doubt in my mind its the FDA.

I find it ridiculous how they can be so blatantly operating, banning foods and substances and then allowing others, and what is even more shocking is when people claim that there is nothing going on within the people run the government and country. It's the answer to why certain drugs are illegal and why other drugs aren't. It all comes down to money.

 

I don't think that they should be shut down, but they need to be seriously re-evaluated. Perhaps an investigation should happen, but if we are to believe that the 'elite' have control over everything then they could pretend that they are investigating the FDA and then rig the results.

Sure - because companies have such an awesome track record of doing well unregulated.  When you build a house and then notice that one of the support beams is breaking or rotten, .you dont forget why its there in the first place and tear it down. You fix it or put something else in its place.
