FDA Watch: Congress Lets the Foxes Guard the Henhouse

Here's today's comment from Mercola about the FDA:

"The FDA views the drug industry as its client. Within the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, about 80 percent of the resources are geared toward the approval of drugs and 20 percent is for everything else. Drug safety is a measly 5 percent. This speaks loads about their priorities. It is NOT about protecting you -- it is about approving drugs as quickly as possible so the drug companies can reap their profits."

For today's article about the recent passage of new laws in the House and Senate, and more of Mercola's comments, see:
