Two great quotes:
"More than half of the budget of the division of the FDA that approves new drugs and oversees drug safety is being funded by the drug companies…" said Dr. John Abramson. "The watchdogs are largely drugged."
"Right now, our government is not terribly interested in making any reforms that would be useful, because they’re so beholden to drug companies," said Dr. Jerome Hoffman. "We have to have the clout, influence and the organization to make it so that they can’t blithely go along making the FDA be something that has been widely and famously called a servant of the drug industry. We have to make the FDA a servant to us."
So, the FDA is incompetent -- like Barney Fife in charge of San Quentin -- while Big Pharma goes around maiming its own research subjects /slash paid human guinea pigs and pimping its toxic snake oil to the rest of us. How quaint.
