Thank you so much for stopping by! Time appears to be flying by way too fast and I'm looking to do something exciting with the rest of my life. I'll be starting an online fitness business called "GoBeDo" sometime this year. Be sure and check in. You'll learn about High Interval Training, Yoga, Body weight exercise, Spartan races, Functional training and whole lot more. Real $hit, for Old Timers like me. Why? We only have one shot at a grandiose and fulfilling life. Let's get busy creating one. Remember, it's the start that stops most people. The last thing I want to take to my grave is "regret!"
Peace/Love and Hugs!

Two Reasons Not to trust the FDA. Just two?

Reason #1 More than Half of the Experts are Financially Motivated
According to USA Today, more than half of the experts hired by the FDA to advise the government on the safety and effectiveness of medicines have direct financial relationships with the pharmaceutical companies who will either be helped or hurt by FDA approval. A USA Today analysis of financial conflicts of interest shows the following, based on 159 FDA advisory committee meetings:
92% of the meetings had at least one member who had a financial conflict of interest.
At 55% of advisory meetings, at least half, sometimes more among the FDA advisers, had conflicts of interest.
At 102 meetings dealing with the fate of a given drug, 33% of the experts in attendance had a financial conflict
Historically the FDA revealed when these financial conflicts were present, but these conflicts have been kept secret since 1992.

Reason #2: Read on...

Don't trust the Gubment!
