FDA – Why Are More And More Americans Dying Because Of The FDA?
Because of increasing delays caused by unnecessary FDA costs, caution, and bureaucracy are preventing the introduction of new drugs and antibiotics which would most likely save tens and maybe even hundreds of thousands of American lives every year!!
New and dangerous bacteria are mutating faster, but the FDA is dragging its feet and is approving new antibiotics at a much slower rate than that at which bacteria are mutating!
Tens And Even Hundreds Of Thousands Of Lives?
Antibiotic-resistant bacteria infect two million Americans every year, causing at least 23,000 deaths.
And even more die from complications related to the infections, and the numbers are steadily growing.
The Cause Of The Delays?
Many reasons are being bandied about for the shortage of new drugs and the FDA is not of course the only reason.
Pharmaceutical companies say that because of rising costs that the cost/benefit risks are too high.
Others say that the overuse of antibiotics is causing the potency of the existing ones to diminish too quickly.
