There is no question about the size of the pharmaceutical industry. It’s huge and brings in billions in revenue each year. Big pharmas want to get their drugs on the shelves as soon as possible. This is medications are often rushed without having been adequately tested, which is a problem. Yes, the US Food and Drug Administration is responsible for ensuring the drugs manufactured are safe, but they do falter from time to time, and people do get hurt.
As a matter of fact you will be surprised to know that more than 200,000 people lose their lives every year to medications and all kinds of drugs that are FDA approved.
