FDA Admits That Government Is Recommending Untested, Unlicensed Vaccines for Pregnant Women – Collective Evolution

Posted by M. C. on February 14, 2019

HHS confessed that it has not once complied—in over 30 years—with statutory requirements for regular review of childhood vaccine safety, nor reported to Congress on measures to improve safety.

Has your unborn child had its recommended dose of aluminum and mercury?


Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. says, “As a nation, we can no longer pretend our trusted agencies are protecting our children. It is time to hold federal agencies accountable.”

WASHINGTON, D.C., Feb. 11, 2019—In response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit, the FDA has admitted, for the first time, that government agencies, including the CDC, are recommending vaccines for pregnant women that have neither been licensed for pregnant mothers by FDA nor tested for safety in clinical trials. The lawsuit, filed by Children’s Health Defense (CHD) attorney, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. on behalf of Informed Consent Action Network(ICAN), a vaccine safety advocacy group, sought all clinical trial data used by FDA to approve influenza vaccines for pregnant women. The FDA’s terse reply: “We have no records responsive to your requests.”

What Would Happen If Government Didn’t Handle That? – Foundation for Economic Education

Posted by M. C. on July 26, 2018

Gary M. Galles

Those who defend liberty are often challenged to supply exhaustive descriptions of what would happen were some aspect of our increasingly government-dictated lives returned to individuals’ voluntary arrangements. What would happen if government didn’t educate our children? If Social Security didn’t provide for retirement? If Medicaid and Medicare didn’t provide health care? If the USDA, FDA, FAA, etc., didn’t ensure our safety? If the EPA didn’t deal with pollution?

Anyone put on the spot with such questions must recognize that they are rhetorical traps. They are used to put an impossible burden of proof on voluntary arrangements, to allow proponents to dodge having to defend against criticisms of coercive policies… Read the rest of this entry »

Moonshot Medicine – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on April 23, 2018

The big insult is why private and governmental agencies give license to over-priced medicines when the costs of research and development are born by the public? An example is a drug to cure hepatitis C that was largely developed with public funds but its patents rights were assigned to private entities.

Drug companies come up with these exorbitant prices by factoring the life-long cost of symptom treatment against their one-time cure.


It is all part of the 21st Century Cures Act, which spreads $4.8 billion of research funding in an attempt to accelerate the development and approval of real cures.  But will this Herculean effort bankrupt insurance pools?

The money is being directed toward expensive pharmacological cures that will further burst the Medicare Trust fund.  Gobs of federal money are going towards innovations, like CRISPR gene therapy, that intends to completely remedy single-gene mutation diseases like cystic fibrosis, sickle cell, Huntington’s disease, and muscular dystrophy, all cured in a single treatment.  But at what cost?

Herbal supplement kratom contains opioids, regulators say

Posted by M. C. on February 7, 2018

44 deaths, really! Nameless “authorities” and “regulators” should maybe look elsewhere.

In 1999, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) reported that up to 98,000 people die each year due to hospital mistakes.

The FDA is doing the killing-to the competition to their “authority” and big pharma’s bottom line..

U.S. health authorities say an herbal supplement promoted as an alternative pain remedy contains the same chemicals found in opioids, the addictive family of drugs at the center of a national addiction crisis.

The Food and Drug Administration analysis, published Tuesday, makes it more likely that the supplement, kratom, could be banned by the federal government.

The FDA also said it has identified 44 reports of death involving kratom since 2011, up from 36 reported in November…

A Sneak Peak at Death Panels

Posted by M. C. on August 5, 2012

Australia has a head start on everything progressive.  This article about a cancer patient waiting to be approved for an (FDA approved, expensive) American cancer drug may be a look at what death panels will look like.  The FDA has already created shortages and long waits.  It will get worse.  Carpe Diem.

Be seeing you, if you don’t get sick.

What is worse than the FDA? The Senate creating S 3187 an FDA Bill.

Posted by M. C. on May 28, 2012

The Senate passed 96-1 bill S 3187 authorizing $6.4B in FDA user fees over five years. The bill seeks to prevent shortages and spur new drug development. How, one may ask, does added legislation and user fees spur development? I don’t know either. Read the rest of this entry »
