...don't even ignore 'em.

As I predicted, the doctors are rising up against the FDA and the Pharmas. Two new studies and articles in prestigious medical journals, as reported here, have called for new legislation to fix the FDA's fractured system -- this key health agency is not protecting our health from unproven prescription medicines, folks. And, as you may recall reading on this blog, the AMA has already declared a kind of muted war on drug marketing and advertising. Write your representative. Better yet, elect a new one. Much of Congress depends on the drug companies' deep pockets for their campaigns, and the Bush administration consistently appoints administrative saboteurs to the bureaucracies, including the FDA. Look it up.
