    The FDA is guilty of slowing down medical innovation, driving costs through the roofs, and even trying to decide which health apps people may buy. They are probably responsible for more deaths than they have “prevented”.

    You governmental control libs have a slogan – My Body, My Choice. If someone is dying, stay the hell out of their way, fascists.
