screw the fda, they are just working with the pharmaceutical companies to keep people from realizing the benefits of vitamins and nutrients so they can keep selling their chemicals

the fda started out as a good idea, but like so many other things they have become too powerful for theirs and our own good

Sigh...I suppose you'd like to go back to the days where people sold everything and anything to "cure" all that ails you.

The FDA is doing their job. We may not always agree with them but they do what they do the best they can.

Don't like the pharmaceutical companies? Then quit asking the docs for the newest and latest drug just because you saw the commercials!

(they really ought to ban these commercials - heck, ban ALL pharmaceutical ads!!!)

I agree. Commercials for prescription drugs are not designed to help the consumer.

Also, those commercials may cause: vommiting, diarreah, sore throat, cold sores, vaginal bleeding, cramps, muscle aches, blurred vision, kidney failure, and/or stroke. You should ask your doctor if you have a history of liver or kidney problems, heart disease, or gonorreah.

Why can't you get nutrients from your sleepy cough medicine while you snooze?

They're worried about Vitamin C! Isn't there alcohol in NyQuil?!
