[] What is the FDA's Mission Statement?

has posted a new item, 'What is the FDA's Mission Statement?'

People want to trust that their so-called elected government is doing the right
thing when it passes regulations to enhance public safety. When the Pure Food
and Drug Act was passed in 1906 a new watchdog agency, The Food and Drug
Administration (FDA), was born. It would be many years before we as a nation had
such luxuries as refrigeration, sanitary food processing standards, and good
manufacturing processes (GMP), so in many respects, this law was necessary. So,
what exactly does the FDA do? According to the FDA: The FDA's mission is to
promote and protect the public health by helping safe and effective products
reach the market in a timely way, and monitoring products for continued safety
after they are in use. Our work is a blending of law and science aimed at
protecting consumers." But times change and unfortunately, sometimes so do
mission statements. The growth in knowledge of biochemistry, natural medicine,
physiology, molecular chemistry and chemical process methods have yielded
millions of new synthetic drugs and treatment options, far more than our
grandparents would have imagined at the turn of the century. To ensure growing
profits, these new synthetic drugs are aimed at symptom management rather than
cures for diseases or chronic conditions. This can be seen by the continued and
growing reliance on synthetic medicine. For example, from 1985-1999, there was a
35% increase in medicines used by Americans to treat (not cure) chronic
conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity, depression, and
arthritis. In the year 2000, about $116.9 Billion was spent on prescription
drugs. The number of prescriptions dispensed is projected to grow to 2.07
billion by the year 2005! By way of comparison, our up and coming war on Iraq is
estimated to cost about $90 Billion. But $90 Billion for a war somewhere in the
world every 12 years is chicken feed compared to the costs of drugs and
medicines that Americans shell out each and every year. This is approximately
$26.9 Billion less than what Americans spent on drugs in the year 2000. Let's
see, $90 Billion for a war once in a while and over $1Trillion (yes that's T"
for toy Trillion) for prescription drugs. That's a lot of pills. As
pharmaceutical business has grown, the FDA has changed from an institution that
was trying to protect public health from bad food to a rubber stamp government
organization that only takes public safety into account when it is forced to by
some form of gross public error. In other words, blind loyalty to doctors and
their symptom hiding pills" is not without consequence; Americans are getting
fatter and sicker. Today you can be confident that about 800 Americans will die
from obesity, which averages out to be 300,000 obese people dying every year.
Interestingly, scientists have already discovered the cure for obesity, yet the
FDA and doctors are ignoring it! Additionally, the Journal of the American
Medical Association (JAMA) reported that by comparing 16 "health markers"
considered indicative of good health, the U.S ranks on average 12th out of the
top 13 countries in regard to the health of it's citizens. Few people realize
the impact of these statistics. As we spend more on health care in the form of
FDA approved drugs, we becoming sicker. Wrap your brain cells around that! Still
though Americans, like cattle, are lining up at the pharmaceutical trough for
their daily dose of just what the doctor ordered". And they are bringing their
children with them.Researchers writing for Pediatrics showed that between 1997
and 2000, approximately 3,750 serious injuries, birth defects and deaths
occurred among children under 2 who were secondary recipients of prescription
drugs compliments of their mothers via pregnancy, labor, or breast feeding. The
study, conducted by researchers at George Washington University and the
University of Maryland, found 769 childhood deaths and 664 cases of birth
defects or disabilities that could be directly linked to prescription drug use.
The FDA has stated that these numbers really only account for about 2% of the
actual number of deaths and negative side effects reported! In spite of the
carnage committed against the young and innocent, the FDA does not require
pharmaceutical companies to test newly released drugs for potentially hazardous
effects on children. Yet, according to the New York Times and JAMA, spending on
central nervous system (CNS) drugs for pediatric patients increased by 85% from
1985-1999! Call it lack of sufficient funding, integrity, human nature, greed or
plain old corruption, the protective motivation that was once the driving force
of the FDA is gone! A new kind of bureaucracy has risen up in its place and very
few professionals are aware of the change, especially among media channels.
Undoubtedly, the general population is grossly ignorant of the FDA's new
mission, to approve life-threatening drugs that will profit the pharmaceutical
companies and to suppress non-toxic, inexpensive and effective natural
therapies. Jay R. Cavanaugh, PhD, Member, California State Board of Pharmacy
1980-90, said it best when referring to the FDA and international pharmaceutical
companies:This collection of serial killers with reckless disregard of human
life, extinguishes the hopes and lives of over 100,000 Americans every year. In
the past decade they have been responsible for over one million innocent deaths,
yet not only have they not faced justice, they have enriched themselves with
profits that would make Bill Gates envious. These parasitic killers come not
from some cave in Afghanistan, but from plush office suites..." That the FDA is
a watchdog agency for public health interests is a fallacy. The FDA is a lapdog
for international, multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical companies and is
responsible for millions of preventable deaths.Shane holds a Master's degree in

by winning the battle against premature aging? That is the million dollar
question. Since ancient times people have been searching for the fountain of
youth. Since then we have come a long way. Do you think it is possible to look,
feel and be young at any age? Millions of dollars are being spent by individuals
and companies in search of a way to stop aging with some success. There are many
products that promise a long life and some even claim that they've discovered
the secret of anti aging. Worldwide consumers are spending millions of dollars
on various products to stop premature aging. Some of these so called "anti
aging" products don't work at all. But, there are some that do work by slowing
down aging to a certain degree. Is there a way to slow down aging and remain
youthful even in old age? Do you know that there is no single identifiable gene
in your body that is programmed to age you? Scientists say that our generations
are living much longer than our ancestors... maybe. During recent experiments on
ancient human skeletons certain scientists have proved that some humans actually
lived to be a few hundred years old. Were they mistaken? It is possible...But, I
think not. Unfortunately, the common belief is that we can only live to be 80 to
120 years. There are people who in their 30's already feel like 60. On the other
hand, there are some who at 60 years old feel as though they were only 30. Could
age be all in your mind? All my life I have been interested in staying young and
healthy. I am constantly looking for ways to extend my life and others as well.
In the past few years I was searching a lot for techniques and products to
discover the secrets of anti aging. I came across some good ones, but 90% of
them were just pure rubbish causing me to waste a lot of money. Has this
happened to you, too? Please allow me to share with you some of my findings that
have actually worked for me. 1.* Human growth hormone... (HGH) is an endocrine
hormone produced by the pituitary gland. This is a top supplement used to combat
premature aging. The release of HGH declines as we age and by the time we
approach 65 years of age, our pituitary gland is only releasing 15% to 20% of
the Human Growth Hormone it did when we were teenagers! 2-AEP is a biological
component of our cell wall. It has been identified as a neurotransmitter and
helps to build new nerve paths.The 2-AEP mineral carrier is like the Postman,
but rather than delivering our mail, 2-AEP delivers the essential minerals to
our cell walls. In my experience, to reap the full benefits of HGH you should
use a supplement that combines 2-AEP + HGHR ingredients(human growth hormone
releaser). 2.* Vitamins & Minerals... The use of non synthetic variety of
vitamins and minerals greatly improves your body's ability to ward of diseases.
It is very important to use natural vitamins and minerals. Over time synthetic
supplements can cause more harm than good. I take organic vitamins and minerals
daily to combat premature aging. 3.* Laughter... It is a proven fact that
laughter triggers the release of endorphins that produce a general sense of
well-being. Endorphins are neurohormones which are the body's natural
painkillers. Laughter activates the immune system increasing the number and
activity level of natural killer cells that attack viral infected cells and some
types of cancer and tumor cells. Studies have proved that laughter decreases
stress hormones. Try to laugh as often and as much as possible. I have
discovered many more methods in my quest to prevent premature aging, but there's
just too much to list all of them here. What is the secret of anti aging? I
believe that I have found some of the best proven formulas to stay young.About
