Comments for FDA General
Questions
1. General Comments I feel the FDA needs to keep out of the dietary supplement business. As a Registered Nurse, I see how Pharmaceutical companies keep a monopoly on their products and related costs & also how they spend their 'marketing money' to get professionals to buy their products. It's a sin to know that other countries can get the same medications at much cheaper prices & that drug companies pass these expences onto those who are on restricted incomes or milk insurance companies to make their profits. Maybe they should nix all these paid vacations or comp sporting events passes that they pass out so freely to the docs & cheapen their products!
