The FDA remains in state of denial about drug safety questions

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

There are two problems at the FDA. The first is that the Fraud and Drug Administration clearly puts the protection of Big Pharma profits as its primary mission, rather than protecting the public from dangerous drugs. But the second problem (and this is the bigger problem) is that the FDA is incapable of seeing any problem with this policy.

Rather than admitting its mistakes and working to actually try to regulate the pharmaceutical industry, the FDA remains in a strong state of denial. It attacks the testimony of Dr. David Graham, the FDA drug safety researcher who now warns about Bextra, Crestor and other drugs, while ridiculously insisting it is the "world gold standard in drug safety."

It is precisely this arrogance, this departure from reality, that makes the FDA so utterly dangerous to the American public. Because it's one thing to make a series of drug safety mistakes that have killed (yes, killed) literally hundreds of thousands of Americans, but it's another thing altogether to insist that the system is working just fine. It's the best in the world, according to the FDA.

And that's downright scary.
