What Congress needs to do is get the FDA to finally jump out of the Big Pharm companies' pockets. Now the FDA wants to "regulate" everything that
has even only remote connections to natural health practices.
Got a headache & need asprin? Tough! You'd have to get a doctor's prescription first.
It includes your normal, everyday, over-the-counter vitamin suppliments!
General Nutrition Centers, you know, herbal extracts & such? Either they'd need to get licensed as Pharmacies or shut down all business. So much for
"Free Market," huh?
Yes, this would even include rocks: That's right, if you wanted to have a massage done with warmed-up rocks, the FDA would have it classified as
"medical equipment" & prevent it from being used by anyone who doesn't have a license to practice medicine!
Reforming Health Care would have absolutely no positive effect unless the Government Agencies (& their current policies) get "reformed" first.
