On the FDA's Jihad Against Rare Diseases

Since 1962 (the year that the Kefauver Amendments were passed), the length of time that it takes to get a drug from the lab to the market has TRIPLED (from 5 to 15 years) and the cost is now approaching a BILLION dollars per drug. This has made it almost impossible for a new drug that addresses rare diseases to be brought to market because a company could never recoup its expense never mind make a damned profit - this while people are suffering....Government killing people, folks - it's what they do.

Well, the FDA seemed to rush through approval of genetically modified Salmon. Mature in half the time- fish farmers love them. I have my doubts and probably
will avoid simmered Frankenfish with lemon and capers, ya know?
