  1. Prob cuz they taste so good

  2. The FDA took 41 years after noticing the public in the Federal Register in 1975 that: "there is no substantial evidence of drug effectiveness as prescribed, recommended, or suggested in its labeling." as reported in Drug Therapy.

    Don't let the FDA's negligence continue for another moment much less three more generations. We can stop the sale of poison tablets today by confronting the pharmacist who has a sworn duty to follow the law. The law says F is an unapproved drug. They cannot sell an unapproved drug so stop it.
