The FDA is getting desperate in the war to monopolize the U.S. pharmaceutical industry and prevent citizens from purchasing prescription drugs at lower prices from Canada and elsewhere. They've now invoked the "terrorism" label in the fight to suppress consumer free choice. Unbelievably, FDA commissioner Lester Crawford is now saying that prescription drugs from Canada are a threat to U.S. consumers because terrorists might be attacking us through those prescription drugs. This idea is so ridiculous as to be laughable.

For one thing, the drugs coming across the border and sold in U.S. pharmacies are extremely toxic already. Secondly, the idea that Al-Qaeda would attack the United States by targeting drug sources in a neutral country like Canada is absurd, especially when it would be so much easier to set off a dirty bomb in Washington or New York or some other large city.

Is the FDA seriously suggesting that the next wave of terrorists are going to target cholesterol drugs? Are we going to have prescription drugs that are laced with toxic chemicals that cause patients to suddenly die? And if we do, how would we tell the difference between the patients that are already dying from taking prescription drugs? This is no joke: if we have 100,000 people being killed each year by prescription drugs right now -- according to the Journal of the American Medical Association -- at what point are we supposed to notice that even more people are dying from prescription drugs laced with toxic chemicals? The prescription drugs themselves are already toxic!

With 100,000 deaths and at least 2,000,000 injuries each year being caused by legal prescription drugs in the United States, it's hard to imagine how a terrorist could add any more terror to that equation. Even 9/11 doesn't compare with the terrible statistics of prescription drugs.

In fact, based on these statistics, the FDA and the pharmaceutical industry has technically been far more effective at terrorizing the U.S. population than Al-Qaeda. Given that terrorists were responsible for killing 3,000 people at the World Trade Center attacks, the statistics indicate that the prescription drug industry is killing 33 times as many people in the United States each year. In the three years since the 9/11 attacks in 2001, the U.S. pharmaceutical industry has -- according to the American Medical Association -- killed 100 times as many people as terrorists. I'm not making this up...

So, let's get real, folks. If the FDA is going to cite terrorism in this debate about prescription drugs, then they need to answer to the question of why they are approving obviously unsafe drugs that are killing 100 times as many people in the United States as the terrorists ever managed to kill. If the FDA was really concerned about public health and public safety, they would recall virtually all prescription drugs that have been approved through fraudulent safety studies over the past three decades and require drug companies to start engaging in real science, where they have to publish all studies, not just the positive ones, and where clinical trials aren't distorted in order to show a result that will produce profits for the pharmaceutical company in question. All this recent talk about the Vioxx recall just goes to show you that even FDA-approved drugs aren't safe for human consumption.

Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products to low levels by July 1, 2015.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.
