Excerpt from the IMVA Essay, The Ultimate Terrorists, published as the FDA celebrates its 100 Anniversary.
The capacity of the FDA to betray the nation was revealed vividly by Dr. David Graham last year when he acknowledged that Merck's drug for arthritis sufferers, Vioxx, caused as many as 139,000 heart attacks, strokes, and deaths. Testifying before the Senate, Graham charged that Vioxx had killed between 28,000 and 55,000 people since the FDA placed it on a fast track for approval in 1999.
The stories go on and on without limit but one of the most foul and least heard about or understood is the story of insulin told by Dr. Brent Hoadley in his book Too Profitable to Cure. Human rDNA insulin was pushed through the FDA in the early 1980s in an incredibly short time despite scientists objecting about the high incidence of adverse events like severe hypoglycemia being found. Since the introduction of this genetically engineered insulin there has been a 350% increase in "dead in bed" syndrome (diabetics dying in their sleep from low blood sugars).
With the ripping explosion in diabetes facing the entire world's population this could shape up to be the largest and most hidden medical fiasco ever. Dr. Hoadley, a diabetic himself, writes, "The human insulin product so quickly approved was not equal to the beef or pork insulin products that have been proven safe over a period of 70 years of use. The only advantage of human insulin is the fact that the product is considerably less expensive to produce than animal insulins and results in greater profitability for diabusiness." What is it to the FDA that the mortality rate, which prior to 1982 was less than 4% from iatrogenic hypoglycemia, exploded to present estimates of 13%? Multiply this rate increase by the huge increase in diabetes and then add in additional deaths of those killed by diabetics in auto-accidents and we have a steadily increasing number of deaths to lay at the door of the FDA. Today it is now virtually impossible for Americans, and most people around the world to even purchase the earlier safer versions of insulin.
The pharmaceutical companies are in the business of manufacturing drugs of a poisonous nature for the purpose of making money, so much that these industries have produced the wealthiest and most powerful people the world has ever seen. That is spelled P-O-I-S-O-N like in danger, hazard, beware, and handle with care types of substances. The job of the FDA is to assure the public that the poisonous drugs are safe as mother's milk. It is interesting to note what Dr. Harvey W. Wiley, the very first commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), then known as the "US Bureau of Chemistry," said to his infamous Poison Squad, young men who were deliberately fed poisonous substances commonly in use as preservatives. "There was no danger by poisons, but that there might be some disturbance to their systems."
The FDA's Censorship
The FDA stands at the point of sale of health care products acting as a block to information that could save lives and alleviate suffering. The FDA is a fascist organization that is against freedom of speech and the free flow of information. There are many ways in reality that the FDA carries out its terrorism of the population and its active participation against forms of natural healing is an important one.
Vitamin C manufacturers still cannot tell the public
about the published scientific papers attesting to its
cardio-protective effects because of FDA censorship.
Very simply put the FDA does its very best to limit the ability of natural products and natural healing modalities to make inroads into the territory of the medical industrial complex. Simple, safe and effective forms of treatment are discarded always in favor of the more dangerous ones provided by the pharmaceutical companies.
