Who does the FDA work for?

The FDA knew that SSRI drugs cause suicide as far back as 1996! But they did NOTHING about it. How many kids have died because of the FDA's duplicity with the drug companies?

The article below is a damning indictment of the FDA. Example: In reviewing Zoloft in 1996 it was found that it increased suicide in children by 5 TIMES. A letter was sent to Pfizer asking for "clarification and explanation" and a week later, with no response from Pfizer, Zoloft was approved for use in children. So who does the FDA work for? Obviously the drug companies.

The FDA working in the interest of the American People - NOT!

Here's a story about a congressman with the guts to stand up and tell it like it is. He lost his own son to a "safe and effective" FDA approved drug that cause the boy to commit suicide: Stupak backs drug label change

Antidepressants Cause Suicide

Well, I guess it's better than nothing. The FDA has finally decided to force antidepressant manufacturers to put a "black box" warning on them to say that they cause suicide in children. The fact that Britain, Ireland, Canada and lots of other countries have banned them outright for use by children just goes to prove how powerful the pharmaceutical companies are in the US.

Also of note is the fact that in the UK these drugs are being investigated because there is plenty of evidence that they cause suicide in older people too.

It took 30 years of miscarriages before DES was finally taken off the market. How many more deaths will it take before these dangerous mind altering drugs called antidepressants are also banned?

And the dead shall rise

Can you believe this election? The stupid things that are being said by both sides is just amazing. How about this one from Sen. Edwards: "When John Kerry is president, people like Christopher Reeve are going to walk. Get up out of that wheelchair and walk again... "

What is this? Some sort of religious activity? What will Edwards say about Kerry next? Is this the second coming?

Proposition 63: The "Robin Hood" Initiative

Prop 63 is an initiative on the November ballot that is being called by some the "Robin Hood" initiative because it is a tax hike targeted at those earning over a million a year. Sounds good. Who could object to that other than millionaires? Take from the rich and give to the poor mentally ill? How humanitarian.

Yes, it sounds great - until you take a look at who receives the money. If we examine "mental health treatment" then we see that it mainly consists of handing out psychiatric drugs. Therefore the "Robin Hood" initiative is actually "taking from the rich to give to the poor pharmaceutical companies." And when you look at the fact that the pharmaceutical industry is the biggest money maker in the world it turns out that you are taking from the rich to give to the very, very rich.

So vote "NO!" on prop 63.

I've heard both sides of the issue and my viewpoint is, "why take the chance?"

If there is even a one in a million chance that global warming is occurring then why take it? Why not just make our industrial processes safer so we don't have to worry about it?
