What is a grandfathered drug?
This Federal Food Drug and Cosmetic Act required that drugs be shown to meet certain safety requirements prior to their being marketed.
Drugs that were already on the market were “grandfathered” and allowed to remain on the market without further regulatory approval if they were labeled with the same conditions of use..
How does the FDA provide protection of your rights?
The Food and Drug Administration is responsible for protecting the public health by ensuring the safety, efficacy, and security of human and veterinary drugs, biological products, and medical devices; and by ensuring the safety of our nation’s food supply, cosmetics, and products that emit radiation.
What is bad about the FDA?
According to this view, the FDA allows unsafe drugs on the market because of pressure from pharmaceutical companies, fails to ensure safety in drug storage and labeling, and allows the use of dangerous agricultural chemicals, food additives, and food processing techniques.
Is the FDA a reliable source?
The FDA largely just passes along the biased observations of corporations, research groups, and well-funded panels of ‘experts’. They are not, per se, an independent source of information on things like drug safety or efficacy, and do not exist to serve as a safeguard against patient exploitation or harm.
Is FDA corrupt?
The FDA has been corrupted. The fact that the FDA relies upon drug company money is absolutely insane. This has to be a completely separate agency where the people are not tied in any way, shape or form to the products they’re reviewing.
Is FDA approval necessary?
Food facilities do not have to obtain any type of certification or approval before distributing products in the United States. Food facilities are required to register with FDA, but being registered with FDA does not indicate FDA approval of the facility or its products. New food additives do require FDA approval.
Why was the FDA abolished?
The FDA is not perfect but it plays a vital role to create SOME public confidence in the pharmaceutical process. Even if the FDA releases drugs to the Public that are safe, these same drugs can be dangerous or deadly to people, this is why FDA should be abolished.
What does it mean if something isn’t FDA approved?
FDA does not develop or test products before approving them. Instead, FDA experts review the results of laboratory, animal, and human clinical testing done by manufacturers. If FDA grants an approval, it means the agency has determined that the benefits of the product outweigh the known risks for the intended use.
Who really controls the FDA?
FDA is an agency within the Department of Health and Human Services.
How important is FDA approval?
FDA approval is important, because it validates the need for research on how drugs work on children, not just adults. It also allows us the properly determine the appropriate dosage for children, determine the best route of administration, and test for any drug interactions.
