  1. The problem is the FDA has been approving drugs that create the symptoms of the diseases they’re meant to cure for decades. Like the neuroleptics, which create the negative symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome, and the positive symptoms of “schizophrenia,” via anticholinergic toxidrome. So the FDA hasn’t been functioning properly for decades.

  2. All drugs have adverse effects. In order to decide whether the side effects are worth it you have to know if the drug has a good chance of helping you. For example, chemotherapy can cause death. Why would anyone take that risk for a drug that might provide no benefit? Deregulating the FDA makes us all guinea pigs just like those three women who went blind after (unregulated) stem cell treatment.
