Unfortunately they are using the oversight to their advantage. They essentially have made any discoveries in healthcare limited to the deep pocket club. There is simply no way that any cure can come from anywhere unless it's patentable and and belongs to a large company.
Our healthcare industry operates on the paradigm that unless it's "scientifically" proven it's quackery. That to me suggests that everything has been scientifically proven and there are no more discoveries to be made. The govt has no business telling the American people that they are not allowed to have something they believe is beneficial to their health.
The FDA should be limited to providing information regarding the "official" position on claims of effectiveness, monitoring basic sanitary manufacturing, and truth in labeling of contents. Not telling people that something is dangerous or infective, and not allowing access. The FDA has no scientific basis for claiming that things not researched don't work. It's the right of every America to explore alternatives to the treatment of their own health.
