The FDA exists to ensure that the food and drugs we consume are safe for humans, but does not typically evaluate the environmental impacts of putting new types of engineered foods (like G.E. salmon) into the ecosystem.
Should people be able to experiment on themselves using gene therapy without the FDA’s sign-off? What do you think?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 11% of children between the ages of 4 and 17 have been diagnosed with A.D.H.D. as of 2011. However, if you ask the American Psychiatric Association, they maintain that even though only 5% of American children suffer from the disorder, the diagnosis is actually given to around 15% of American children. This number has been steadily rising, jumping from 7.8% in 2003 to 9.5% in 2007. Schwarz identifies two main themes involved with A.D.H.D. misdiagnosis: the pharmaceutical industry’s role in pushing A.D.H.D. drugs, and doctors failing to identify the root cause of children’s behavioural issues.
The long-awaited revision of FDA guidance rules for new supplements is finally here. It is very bad news. Highest-level Action Alert! What we are dealing with here is whether the supplement industry is allowed to innovate and create new supplements. The FDA, working as usual on behalf of the drug industry, says no. We need your help to stop this right now. It will take a huge effort on all of our parts and we need to start immediately.
The Food and Drug Administration has given the okay to a field trial that would release genetically modified Zika-killing mosquitoes in the Florida Keys. But is it safe?
In the last eight years, the global outcry against Monsanto and the other biotech giants has accelerated—but not a significant peep has emerged from the Obama White House. And now, the bill dubbed The Dark Act is ready for Obama’s signature. It will make GMO labels on food an exclusively federal matter—and those labels will be confusing, weak, and therefore meaningless for the majority of Americans. The Dark Act is basically a free pass for Monsanto and the other biotech giants.
Sure, we live in a capitalistic country, and more power to the people who run businesses and make a good living selling goods and services. But, all of those who knowingly make money off other people’s demise should be shut down and fined, and maybe even jailed. That rule of thumb should go for companies, organizations and corporations too, not to mention regulatory agencies, but that’s more of a utopian world, that doesn’t exist, and from the looks of things, probably never will.
It took the FDA decades to recognize the serious and potentially irreversible side effects of Cipro and Levaquin antibiotics. We hope the new warning works. They’re called fluoroquinolones (FQs) or quinolones for short. Tens of millions of prescriptions have been written for [them]. These antibiotics have been on the market for more than 30 years. Physicians and patients assumed that they were quite safe. These drugs were routinely prescribed for sinus, lung and urinary tract infections with barely a second thought. But now the FDA has issued a stern warning…
The FDA is effectively signing the death warrant of more patients by denying them access to Dr. Burzynski’s antineoplaston cancer treatment—for no rational reason whatsoever. Please help. Action Alert! Over the years, we’ve covered the FDA’s attacks on Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski, the trailblazing cancer doctor best known for his discovery and development of antineoplastons (ANP), which are peptides and amino acid derivatives that activate tumor-suppressing genes. Independent research has confirmed antineoplastons to be an effective cancer treatment.
The New York Times recently published an article carrying the headline, “C.D.C. Ends Chipotle Case With Illness Still a Mystery.” That “mystery,” of course, is the fact that although investigations into the E. coli outbreaks were conducted by the CDC, the real cause of them still remains unknown. This very well may be as close as we’ve seen mainstream media come to actually raising the possibility of biotech industry food terrorism in this particular case.
Forbes styles itself “The Corporate Tool” Apparently that means shilling for corporations that are unabashedly killing people and maiming them with contaminated vaccines like Gardasil, the subject of what we believe is an international criminal conspiracy, Merck. The Forbes article gushingly praised the use of “Disney Princesses” to advertise the HPV vaccine to little girls and their families. The article is so filled with misinformation and misdirection that it was difficult to know where to start.
The FDA has been instructed to ban the sale of GM salmon until it can complete labeling guidelines and “a program to disclose to consumers” whether a fish has been genetically altered.
