A Different Way

to look at Life, Health, Business and Politics

So, you REALLY want Government sponsored health care?

A new report from the FDA suggests that recent problems with heparin have proven to be even worse than originally thought.  The report concludes that deaths linked to all versions of heparin–including a tainted version of the drug sold by Baxter–have tripled. There now are 62 reports of patients dying who were infused with heparin from January 1, 2007 through the end of this past March who had a one or more allergic reactions. A prior FDA report had only listed 19 deaths. At present, the FDA isn’t sure what caused the spike in adverse reactions. Right now, they’re suggesting that this is more of matter of delays in reports from companies and a growth in reports from consumers reading about Baxter’s problems.

The FDA’s job is to PROTECT consumers from this kind of travesty!  Yet, it appears that the Government’s real job is to get drugs to the market as soon as possible and then cover its backside when things go wrong.  Unfortunately, the consumer loses!  If you can’t trust the FDA to prevent stuff like this from happening, how can you be confident of ANY FDA approved drug for whatever ailment for which you might be treated?

Stay healthy!  Avoid drugs when you can.
