Health — Does the FDA think that the FDA is broken?

For those of you that know me or know the work that I do, you know that I am no fan of the FDA. Hot on the heels of the information that another FDA approved drug does NOT work for what it is prescribed AND possibly could increase the risk of cancer, one of my colleagues has found a document on the FDA website talking about the agency’s shortcomings.

Larry Frieders of The Compounder Custom Compounding Lab of Auroa, IL posted this to his site. Within the page he has a link to a document produced by the FDA’s Subcommitte on Science and Technology. In the document, the subcomitte points our glaring defiences within the FDA, with issues ranging from the FDA not receiving enough funding to operate to finding that the FDA’s “scientific base had eroded and its scientific organizational structre is weak.”

I have had only a chance to glance over the executive summary of the report, but it appears to be a pretty damning piece from within the FDA. Take a look at it and tell me what you think….

Till next time!
