FDA and Merck Implicated in 139,000 DeathsBy: DAVE WOYNAROWSKI, M.D.

Please understand that I do not have the money required to make accusations about major governmental and Drug institutions.
I am simply reporting on the results of testimony given to the U.S. Senate concerning the drug Vioxx and the state of the FDA. David Graham, an FDA employee stated he estimated that Vioxx the darling of Merck pharmaceuticals ( next to Zocor!) may have caused almost 140,000 heart attacks or sudden deaths, and that both he FDA and Merck knew about it before the drug was even released,
This was not a case of “post marketing discovery” where the side effects of a drug only become apparent after it is used by hundreds of thousands of people.
In this article I get to play my favorite role, psychic and attempt to predict the future.
So what next?
Of course there will be the obligatory finger pointing and hundred million (billion?) dollar lawsuits.
Then there will have to be sweeping changes in the FDA.
Heads will role, but out of it all 2 things will come from the mouths of the FDA heads.
1) We need more money!
2) We need more legal power.
I hope you can see where this will wind up.
Ultimately this will play right into the FDA’s hands.
How so you might ask.
Well about 2 weeks ago I wrote an article discussing the influence of the World Trade Organization on the supplement industry.
Simply put the WTO wants one of its member (The U.S. of A.) to come into line with the same supplement and vitamin policies that other member states like France and Germany (you know, our allies) have.
That means anything over 100mg of vitamin C would require a prescription.
And guess who would lord over this new tight control over supplements!
You guessed it, the FDA.
The same agency that brought you 139,000 possible deaths from Vioxx, teen suicides on Prozac, Dead livers from Baycol a statin drug, and lightly slapped the wrist of Drug Giant Pfizer for phony advertising about Viagra and not disclosing its deadly side effects!
Well, my confidence is certainly soaring!
Let me tell you something.
