It looks like the FDA knowingly chose to expose untold thousands of people to unnecessary cancer risk to apparently to appease General Electric and other medical-device makers.

Oh. My. Giddy. Aunt!!! I know that whistle blowers are usually picked on and pilloried - if not sacked, and I knew they are generally absolutely right in what they assert - but this collection of horrible business behaviour is just awful - lots of awfulnesses and also their machines can damage fetuses!!! The vile and unspeakable management who let that lot through!

Remember, the wealthy power people are dealing with the population explosion problem.

Seems any solutuion (providing it carries death) is welcome.

Watch the news .... 101 ways to solve the population problem. (Bonujs: destruction of planet Earth).

If it weren't for us activists, the problem would already be solved.

Let us continue to fight for our children, our grandchildren and our Mother Earth.

The half million dollars the lobbyist are using to influence the FDA is not the whole story! What most cannot or will not believe is the level of bribery that is going on behind closed doors between the fucorporations and the FDA decision makers! If the IRS were to do a thorough audit of these crooks at the FDA, maybe 10% will come out clean the rest NOT! we Americans want to believe we are a first world power with honest, reputable and moral governmental agencies, this is not, nor has it EVER BEEN THE CASE! I do speak from experience, having worked in the vending industry was a huge eye opener for me. My MBA took a backseat to what I learned from that experience. One small example, my competitor bribed the proctor of a university with a $1000.00 bribe on a $500,000.00 and that happened 25 years ago! It has only gotten worse. We must use our legal power to not only protect the whistle blowers but honor them for their COURAGE!

interesting. first they make you sick, then they deny you health care, then there a lot of articles written about how people make themselves sick by lifestyle.... there is so much going on that affects our health that we don't know about. The powers that be lie to us all the time. Thanks for the article
