I'm glad you're still hanging in there.
I remember this time last year, we were both freaking out that we had cancer (I thought I had mouth cancer, remember?).
We seem to be in a better state of mind this year.

Oh Ten, I'll never forget. You were right there with me during the most frightening time of my life. I'll always appreciate you for that. We hung through it together, both our scares.

Why would you think that? A recent discovery was made that a single virus causes three types of genital cancer in both males and females. We have an immunization already.
I don't see the FDA getting in the way of cancer treatment at all.

The FDA gets in the way of all drugs. It can take 10 years and 400 million dollars to get approval from the FDA, including for cancer treatment drugs. Hell, for YEARS they wouldn't let manufacturers put on aspirin labels that it thinned blood and could help prevent heart attacks.

This is but one of countless articles on the subject of getting rid of the FDA: The single largest roadblock in drug advancement.

I support getting rid of the FDA 100%. And if someone has done some research, I can't fathom why they would be supportive of keeping the bloated, pointless bureaucracy around.

God bless you. I never knew they had so many forms of the disease.

Well I can only point out that even the most ingenious scientist can cause accidents or death without proper information and regulation.
Madam Curie comes to mind.

Also, that vaccine you're talking about? It was being developed almost 30 years ago. It took that ****ing long to go through all the stuff that is required for getting a drug approved.

Of course they can. And? Why can't *I* make that decision for myself? I don't require the govt to make that decision for me. I can read the risks and assess them all on my own. All the govt does is hold up development and cause thousands of deaths a year due to not approving drugs that could save lives, or by pulling drugs that are saving lives.

Not everybody is smart like you, and not every drug manufacturer is scrupulous.
Without regulation, many unethical drug manufacturers would take advantage of ignorant and gullible and desperate people, who would bankrupt themselves purchasing drugs that are at best useless and at worst harmful.

And then those manufacturers would be out of business. Not exactly the smartest business move to kill all of your customers.
