From the July 2006 Idaho Observer:
FDA internally adopts "final rule" on pharmaceuticals
Federal public "health" autocrats decide consumers cannot sue makers of FDA-approved drugs for damages
WASHINGTON, D.C.— It is estimated that as many as 200,000 people die each year from adverse reactions to prescription drugs approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and about 2.2 million people are injured each year by FDA-approved drugs. FDA-approved Vioxx alone may have killed as many as 60,000 people—more U.S. fatalities than the Vietnam War.
On June 30, 2006, the FDA’s "final rule" regarding pharmaceutical drug liability claims went into effect. The FDA, which is now arguably the nation’s number one killer, has decided that consumers can no longer sue drug companies for the harm caused by any FDA-approved drug, even if the drug’s manufacturer intentionally misled the FDA by hiding or fabricating clinical trial data.
In a move so shocking and transparent (and baseless in legal contemplation), the FDA is attempting to eliminate any responsibility whatsoever for the suffering and death caused by the deadly pharmaceutical drugs it approves for the marketplace.
According to health advocate and author Mike Adams, "In the preamble of the FDA’s new ‘final rule’....the agency asserts that FDA approval of prescription drugs—and their implied safety—may no longer be second-guessed by consumers or organizations of any kind. The FDA’s stamp of approval, the agency claims, is an absolute declaration of safety of all such drugs, for any use whatsoever, including off-label use (the use of drugs on health conditions that were never tested in clinical trials)."
In the last couple of years the corrupt collusion between the FDA, drug companies and the medical "research" they sponsor has been reported in the mainstream press. The highly-publicized Vioxx scandal and others indicate that the FDA and cronies in the private sector are beginning to lose their grip on their $multi-billion drug approval scam and, out of desperation, have approved their "final solution"—they will administratively hold back the flood of damages suits for as long as they can.
Meanwhile, the FDA keeps approving drugs, doctors keep prescribing them, people keep taking them and America just gets sicker and sicker...
