Tech Central Station explains the serious damage to medical research caused by FDA policies. The time and costs imposed by the FDA have risen drastically in the past 20 years, to the point at which many promising medical treatments are just abandoned.

This directly affects your future health and longevity, since the FDA is endangering potential (and even working) regenerative and stem cell therapies. You can find out more at FDA Review, and should write to your representatives to protest this wanton destruction of medical progress.
