Default Re: Do Viruses even exist?

More Info:

SODIUM NITRITE Used to preserve, color and flavor processed meats. 1969 - Scientists find sodium nitrite reacts with amines (chemicals in foods, saliva, drugs) to form nitrosamines (potent carcinogens). 1972 - Consumer groups petition Agriculture Department to ban unnecessary use of nitrites and establish a study committee. Committee calls for additional research. 1978 - Agriculture Department and F.D.A. prepare to ban nitrites based on M.I.T. study showing it is carcinogen. F.D.A. review suggests not so. Status: Nitrites still used but in smaller amounts in processed meats; meats available without nitrites are labeled as such.
If they knew this in 78, how can it be approved for over the counter in '98 in Viagra?

More info.. (This RAT hole goes deep.)
March 27, 1998
The Food and Drug Administration today announced the approval of Viagra (sildenafil citrate), the first oral pill to treat impotence, a dysfunction that affects millions of men in the United States.

Unlike previously approved treatments for impotence, Viagra does not directly cause penile erections, but affects the response to sexual stimulation. The drug acts by enhancing the smooth muscle relaxant effects of nitric oxide, a chemical that is normally released in response to sexual stimulation. This smooth muscle relaxation allows increased blood flow into certain areas of the penis leading to an erection.

The product was approved by FDA in less than six months after submission.
Approved in March 27, 1998 in less then 6 month after submission..
So that would be Oct 27, 1997 for submission.

Who was Head of the FDA at that moment:
President Tentatively Settles On a Choice to Head F.D.A.

Published: May 19, 1998

The White House has tentatively chosen a cancer specialist who is vice president of the University of New Mexico to be head of the Food and Drug Administration, a position that has been vacant more than 14 months, Clinton Administration officials said today.

The prospective nominee, Dr. Jane E. Henney, was Deputy Commissioner of Food and Drugs under Dr. David A. Kessler from 1992 to 1994. Dr. Kessler headed the agency for six stormy years, until he left in February 1997 to become dean of the Yale School of Medicine.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is checking Dr. Henney's background, and Administration officials said President Clinton hoped to announce her selection by the end of the month.

Dr. Henney, 51, has extensive experience in government and academia. As vice president for health sciences at the University of New Mexico, she supervises a medical school, a college of pharmacy and several teaching hospitals. She worked at the National Cancer Institute from 1976 to 1985, serving as deputy director for five years, and she was vice chancellor of the University of Kansas before working at the F.D.A. She is also president of the United States Pharmacopeia, a private nonprofit organization that sets legally enforceable standards for the purity and quality of medicines.
2 month after approval a cancer specialist as Head, before that 14 months with no one responsible. (Neat!)

Pfizer Updates Viagra Labeling

FDA and Pfizer Inc. are advising doctors about new warnings and information in the product labeling for Viagra (sildenafil) in response to postmarketing reports of serious adverse events. The new information augments the original drug labeling which warned against the concomitant use of Viagra and nitrates.

Revised in consultation with FDA, the new labeling is intended to help make sure that consumers and doctors are fully informed about the benefits and risks of using Viagra, know that consideration must be given to the cardiovascular status of patients prior to prescribing Viagra, and know how to safely use the drug.

As with all approved drugs, there have been postmarketing reports of important side effects with Viagra. These have been reviewed carefully by FDA since Viagra's approval in April l998. Although a causal relationship cannot be established from these reports, they are being mentioned in the labeling. FDA typically requires manufacturers to update their labeling with such information. It is important to note that the postmarketing reports involving Viagra constitute only a small fraction of the more than six million prescriptions written for this drug. FDA continues to believe Viagra is safe and effective if used according to the updated labeling.
But nothing about cancer, by a Cancer specialist over a chemical the FDA knew in 78 by a M.I.T. study caused cancer.... Hmmmmm
Can we already start to call it "slow" mass murder?
