Food And Drug Administration Plans Crackdown On Risky Homeopathic Remedies
https://www.npr.org/section...

"Under the new policy, the FDA will more carefully scrutinize these products, especially those...sold for serious conditions such as opioid addiction..."

I wonder who at the FDA would be interested in looking into narCONon's 'vitamin bomb' liver destroying program?

Hi BigBeard!

The link you gave needs correcting. Here is the correct link  https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2017/12/18/571666553/food-and-drug-administration-plans-crackdown-on-risky-homeopathic-remedies (https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2017/12/18/571666553/food-and-drug-administration-plans-crackdown-on-risky-homeopathic-remedies)

The drug bomb, which consists of high amounts of vitamins, would not be considered a 'homeopathic product' just based upon the definition of homeopathy and how the products are prescribed

Quote
Definition of homeopathy
: a system of medical practice that treats a disease especially by the administration of minute doses of a remedy that would in larger amounts produce in healthy persons symptoms similar to those of the disease
— homeopath play \ˈhō-mē-ə-ˌpath\ noun
https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/homeopathy

It is considered a pseudoscience, however I know of some people who used it for very bad allergies and it helped, similar to how shots of an allergen substance is given in small dosages to one allergic to that substance. Theory is that they build up an immunity to the substance.

 
Wiki on Homeopathy

Quote
Homeopathy is a system of alternative medicine created in 1796 by Samuel Hahnemann, based on his doctrine of like cures like (similia similibus curentur), a claim that a substance that causes the symptoms of a disease in healthy people would cure similar symptoms in sick people.[1]

The Drug Bomb page that I used to refer others to has since gone missing anmd I am too busy to search the Wayback Machine. So here is a link to a quote of the page amounts of vitamins in the Drug Bomb used in Scientology and Narconon  http://www.webquake.net/ocmb/viewtopic.php?t=14888

Hardly minute amounts, ;D

Big Placebo is also a large multi-billion dollar industry (sometimes the same companies). They position themselves as the small but plucky underdogs, but they're really not. Their lobby group is very well-funded, and why not, they don't have to spend much on development.

 Under the current (Bat Shit Crazy Madman in office) Administration, fiscal cutbacks could force the FDA to not have the ability to protect we the people in a fashion we are used too or very much need.

 People need to be very careful for what they ask for. Across the board deregulation only serves those whom have a vested interest in a corporation and the financial gain associated with less government oversight.

 We NEED entities like the FDA,EPA,SEC, etc to be well funded and have the legal muscle to quell unchecked actions in order to protect we the people for businesses who only care about profit over the welfare of their fellow man.

I agree ST. Although some industries have been traditionally overregulated, we seem to be headed in an extreme and potentially hazardous direction. I assume that most people assumed the proposed deregulation would be a bit more strategic?

Scary times.
