What's Wrong With The FDA

"That whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it."
Thomas Jefferson, Declaration of Independence
July 4, 1776

Congressional committees and investigative journalists have exposed massive incompetence, neglect and fraud at the FDA. In the Courts, the agency continues to lose critical cases as Federal Judges rule that FDA policies are blatantly unconstitutional.

In the article that begins on the next page, we reveal the most recent defeats the FDA has suffered in the Federal Courts. We then follow with a report that deals with FDA problems uncovered by Congressional committees and investigative journalists.

For the past 21 years, The Life Extension Foundation has compiled evidence indicating that the FDA is the number one cause of death in the United States. The FDA causes Americans to die by:

" Delaying the introduction of life-saving therapies
" Suppressing safe methods of preventing disease
" Causing the price of drugs to be so high that some Americans do without
" Denying Americans access to effective drugs approved in other countries
" Intimidating those who develop innovative methods to treat disease
" Approving lethal prescription drugs that kill
" Censoring medical information that would let consumers protect their health
" Censoring medical information that would better educate doctors
" Failing to protect the safety of our food
" Misleading the public about scientific methods to increase longevity

The greatest threat the FDA poses to our health is the fact that the agency functions as a roadblock to the development of breakthrough medical therapies. Innovation in medicine is stifled by FDA red tape, which is why Americans continue to die from diseases that long ago might have been cured if a free marketplace in drug development existed.

The Life Extension Foundation is the only organization that chronicles the multiple abuses committed against the American public by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). At the end of the last article in this section, we make proposals for reforming the FDA.
