Why would the FDA destroy safe, authentic medicines? They don't trust Americans' judgment? No, to protect Pharma's safe haven.



Why does the U.S. FDA believe Americans are so dumb that they can’t distinguish a ‘silk purse’ from a ‘pig’s ear’ when it comes to choosing a safe source of personally imported medicines.  Look at elements from a mailer of a bogus pharmacy selling counterfeit medicines below...would you be fooled?
The FDA believes you would, and that is why it says it is seeking to create rules under Section 708 of the misnamed Food Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act (FDASIA) that will allow it to needlessly destroy  safe, affordable and authentic brand-name prescription medicines from licensed, registered pharmacies in Tier One Countries that have standards of safety and efficacy that meet or exceed those of the US FDA, thereby denying untold numbers of Americans access to these vital medicines at prices as much as 60 to 80 percent less than the cost of the same medicines in the U.S., all to protect Pharma’s ‘safe haven’ of the U.S. for the highest prices for prescription drug prices in the world.
What are the facts? Let's take a look at what a bogus pharmacy mailer looks like, and you decide if you are safer knowing the FDA, ostensibly designed to protect American's health is destroying authentic brand-name medicines at a time when 50 million Americans forego their medicines because they are unaffordable.
Publisher’s  Note: This bogus site comes from Russia (we have purposely removed the URL to avoid someone even mistakenly clicking through to the site).  Notice the misspelling (besst pricces).  This is a common error on such sites.  The quesiton:  Do you need the FDA to tell you this is an indication of a Bogus Pharmacy site?  You will notice continued misspellings throughout this blog.  That is because the material is exactly the way it is presented on the Russian Bogus Pharmacy mailer, and such misspelling is always a tip-off of a Bogus Pharmacy.

Let's look at the claimed 'best sellers':

Our Bestselllers! 
Text Box:  Viigara 0.38$        
 Levtirra 0.95$
 Cilaiis 1.29$
 Vigarra Sublingual 0.96$
  
 Feemale Viigarra $1.43$



Notice that all the claimed medicines are sexual performance-oriented and even those are misspelled...not a single maintenance medicine listed.
And, notice the pricing. No mention of what quantities of orders will be filled, or of the need for a valid, legitimate prescription from your Physician.
Next comes a segment, called : 

Ouur Beest Sides!
( This is apparently an attempt to convince Americans what good guys our Russian 'friends' are:)

* Lowest priices and best quality on the marrket!
* Mediical associations approoved produucts

* Worldwide shippiing, you can trrack shippiing progress
* All kind of goods in one place
* Official suppliiers* Unmarked parcel

* Gifts and discounts
* You can paay by VISA and AMEX
* 1-3 days deliivery for USA clients #NEW!
* Greater 0rder - bigger discount!

 The recent pricing crisis for medications in our country has led some policy-makers to talk of possible rationing since one specialty medicine--Solvadi from Gilead--can 'cure' Hepatitis C, the cost is prohibitive and would be more than the costs of ALL the medications sold in the US last year. (Solvadi costs $1000 per pill, the complete treatment is $80,000-100,000 estimated.)

Yet PhRMA, the trade association of the Pharmaceutical industry, justifies the cost, saying 'we' (the American public will realize savings elsewhere.  And, in so doing, we are subjected to a one-two punch in which Pharma treats us like serfs, using our tax dollars in much of their R&D, while the FDA tries to scare us to death by claiming that we cannot make intelligent, responsible health-care decisions in such matters as identifying a legitimate Tier One Country Pharmacy, so they will act on our behalf to deny our access to safe, affordable personally imported medicines.

Fortunately, you have a chance to stop this folly.  Already, several House of Representative members, and Senators have taken steps to halt funding to the FDA for the implementation of Section 708.  Others have taken steps to introduce legislation in support of personal importation.  There is almost certainly going to be an investigation of the FDA collusion with PhRMA on moves to set generic drug prices so high that it protects the 'safe haven' for the highest drug prices in the world, and, most recently, it appears there will be an investigation into the destruction of thousands of emails by the Health and Human Services exec responsible for the fiasco that was the Obamacare website roll-out.  Hopefully, this mismanagement by the HHS and its FDA operations will lead to even more in-depth investigations of just how far and how high Pharma influence on prescription prices goes.

TELL YOUR CONGRESSMAN AND SENATORS TO STOP THE FDA FROM DESTROYING PERSONALLY IMPORTED AUTHENTIC, VITAL LIFE-SUPPORTING BRAND-NAME MEDICINES FROM TIER ONE COUNTRIES BY REFUSING TO FUND SECTION 708 OF THE MISNAMED FOOD DRUG ADMINISTRATION SAFETY AND INNOVATION ACT, AND TO EXPAND INVESTIGATIONS INTO THE BREADTH AND DEPTH OF THE PHARMA INFLUENCE UPON PRESCRIPTION DRUG PRICES AND ITS COLLUSION WITH THE FDA.
