THIS is what passes for PROGRESS at the FDA?
A few years back, the agency screwed up big time by allowing a dangerous drug for diabetes onto the market with little true testing.
What could possibly go wrong?
Well, obviously, EVERYTHING went wrong…
But leave it to the screwballs in the mainstream to see this as a positive.
They’re actually CELEBRATING it!
A recent report in MedPage Today calls this – I kid you not – “The Most Wonderful Mistake the FDA Ever Made.”
If you ask me, the most “wonderful” mistake is NO mistake at all!
And I’ve got a FOOL-PROOF way to control your blood sugar… no screw-ups necessary!
NEVER make a mistake with your blood sugar
This all starts with the fiasco involving the diabetes drug rosiglitazone, a.k.a. Avandia.
I’m sure you remember it.
That’s the drug behind a big scare in 2007 when a study linked it to major heart risk.
That study was done AFTER it was on the market and WHILE it was being taken daily by patients across the country.
The studies since then have been upside down and inside out.
It DOES cause heart problems. No, wait, it DOESN’T. Hold on… yes it does! Wait again… NOPE!
The FDA eventually concluded the med is “safe,” and that’s the “wonderful” mistake…
The feds now demand more testingas a result of the fiasco -- and by the way, it turns out the drug is safer than lollipops after all.
But not even an open half-licked lollipop found candy-side down in the gutter is as bad as this med.
Heck, if anything, this “wonderful” mistake only proves how screwed-up the system STILL is.
See, the “newer” study that “proved” the drug was safe wasn’t a NEW study… and didn’t really prove ANYTHING.
It was an older study that had been unblinded – in other words, everyone knew who was on the drug and the placebo, even the patients.
Once that happened, a leading cardiac expert said, “the integrity of the trial was destroyed.”
Yes. This is what MedPage Today is celebrating as “the most wonderful mistake.”
Sounds to me like a pretty HORRIBLE one.
It’s a mistake you don’t have to make.
You don’t have to trust the feds to tell you what’s safe and what’s not. Clearly, they’ve got NO CLUE.
I can think of three better ways to control blood sugar right off the top of my head:
- chromium: Ideally, take chromium GTF.
- Gymnema sylvestre: Try 400-800 mg per day.
- cinnamon: Look for a water-based extract.
- berberine: A typical dosage is 1,000 to 1,500 mg daily.
Add those to a diet in which you’ve eliminated refined and processed flour products, and you’ll quickly regain control over blood sugar… without having to worry about the FDA checking its own work.
