    The Food and Drug Administration, the oldest comprehensive consumer protection agency in the U.S. federal government, is charged with protecting the public health. Under this mandate, it regulates drugs and medical devices for their safety and effectiveness. But is it a failing mandate? It's long been argued that the FDA's long and costly approval processes stifle innovation and keep life-changing treatments from the market. But the question remains: when it comes to public health, is it ever okay to sacrifice safety for speed?



    Answer: Yes.

    The FDA is using regulation, that is 30-40 years old. This doesn't fit to new, specific treatments. The statement at 1:57 was most shocking to me. Basically he said, that a patient should not have the right over his body and the medication he takes.
