The FDA is no better than the EPA or the IRS. It’s been misleading this country since it’s inception. The “food pyramid” was absolute BS. They’ve approved drugs that have caused great harm to people and continue to operate as Marxist nanny state “organization” designed to put private business, out of business.
The FDA definitely serves a purpose protecting the public regarding drug safety, and has done so since it’s inception back in the early 1900’s.
Regarding drug products, I definitely give them the benefit of the doubt. If you want examples, let me know.
