"FDA Holocaust"

"Look-alike, sound-alike drugs trigger dangers
5 million errors a year tied to wrong medications; some cause injury, death... Only afterward did Shelley Sanders learn that suicidal actions are a known risk of Lamictal and that her mother's death closely followed one of the more than 5 million wrong-drug errors that occur each year, including many caused by similar-sounding mixed-up names.
"Lyrica and Lamictal are very different drugs," said Sanders, 42, of Atlanta. "This should not have happened."

"The statistics contained in the IOM report were startling. The authors of the report stated that between 45,000 and 98,000 Americans die each year as the result of medical errors. If the lower figure is used as an estimate, deaths in hospitals resulting from medical errors are the eighth leading cause of mortality in the United States, surpassing deaths attributable to motor vehicle accidents (43,458), breast cancer (42,297), and AIDS (16,516). Moreover, these figures refer only to hospitalized patients; they do not include people treated in outpatient clinics, ambulatory surgery centers , doctors' or dentists' offices, college or military health services, or nursing homes . Medical errors certainly occur outside hospitals; in 1999, the Massachusetts State Board of Registration in Pharmacy estimated that 2.4 million prescriptions are filled incorrectly each year in that state—which is only one of 50 states."

What started out as an "offbeat" rant with a witty punch-line... something to the effect of being "hooked on phonics" ...the greatest danger associated with prescription drugs... soon turned to sad alarm. Due to incompetency or because drugs are too similar as look-alike, and sound-alike drugs, there are way too many deaths and injuries to be ignored. Now add all the errors (allowing for overlap) to the overwhelming death statistics for deadly "safe" drugs correctly prescribed... only to kill and harm those who "need" them...

"What if six jumbo jets crashed every day in the United States, claiming the lives of 783,936 people every year? That would certainly qualify as a massive tragedy, wouldn't it?
Well, forget "what if." The tragedy is happening right now. Over 750,000 people actually do die in the United States every year, although not from plane crashes. They die from something far more common and rarely perceived by the public as dangerous: modern medicine."

With 4,000 new FDA agents you would think that the US will be a safer place... yet the Food & Drug Administration will be focusing not on what Pharmacers are getting wrong... but on what independent food producers are getting right!?! The FDA won't go after those causing an American Holocaust... rather under only suspicion they can control food supply by shutting down food producers? If chemical & drug companies are to have free-running death squads... what will the controlling of food supply be?

"Food Safety bill S.510 is alive and well. After suffering a near fatal blow last week in the Senate, it has re-emerged as an amendment to House appropriations bill HR 3082 passed last night, appropriately under the cover of darkness... If the Senate passes this bill, powers will be handed to the FDA that have the strong potential to morph it into an American Gestapo... What most people do not know is that the Gestapo's power came from a law passed in 1936 – not a dictatorial edict from Hitler – that allowed it to operate without judicial oversight."

Some have blasted my Canadian comments on American politics, law and administration... however it may be that we are the only ones left with the freedom to do so. America has a FEW administrations that "operate without judicial oversight" the Federal Reserve... I have noticed the dead-silence when discussing that topic too... I for one believe that it will take a miracle to get things back on track... well, that's because I believe in praying and doing miracles (by action). If you don't... no problem, keep doing the same thing expecting different results... which one sounds insane?

"A real decision is measured by the fact that you've taken a new action. If there's no action, you haven't truly decided."

"If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always gotten."

"It not knowing what to do, it's doing what you know." -quotes by Tony Robbins

It all has gone haywire and out of control because there isn't enough out there to monitor it. Also, many people who take drugs are dependent on a caretakers to administer it to them, and these people are just people and not qualified to dispurse medicine to the sick. They may cut back or give more. These caretakers hold a person's life in their hands. What they might decide is to play with the drug not knowing that it has the potential of causing death from bleeding on the brain (stroke), etc. Drugs are unsafe in a home environment. If the right amount of medicine isn't given consistently, such as you were speaking of the Mother dying, that causes depression and anxiety right off. What good is it in the hands of the wrong people. Medicine may think it has come far, but it is also barbaric treatment for those who are unsuspecting to what it can cause.
