Sorry, just a linky-lurve but you have to see this. Stephanie Z and a minion or two over at Almost Diamonds are giving hell to operatives of some homeopath supply house over the Zicam/Zinc/anosmia debacle.
An example of the antiFDA, antiBigPharmaAieee!! silliness is here:
How can you possibly fully support the FDA? Look at all of the terrible antipsychotics, SSRIs, and other drugs that are being fully approved to be prescribed for 20-30 years of use, when they have only been studied for on average 2 weeks. The FDA approves brain altering drugs, and they are prescribed to children, often 3-5 years old. People need to quit relying on the FDA to tell them what is safe, because they aren't doing a great job. They do a good job, but not a great one. Vaccines, Antidepressants, and on and on, are dangerous, but fully approved because they make big money.
