I'm an old person who knows too many people rapidly declining from ALS, and many with MS, MD and traumatic brain injury whose lives are doomed and being quickly eaten away. I see too many instances of the US FDA letting loose drugs that have such clearly acknowdedged devastating albeit potential side effects that often make the cure worse than the malady...yet one can live with these health problems and many could help themselves out of trouble if they would simply stop with the self pity. Yet if ALS has invaded your body you are not only doomed but left to suffer in ways too awful to recount. If this is to stop and give hope to the many then the lords at the FDA have to stop with their inbred CYA attitude. Hey, FDA...people are dying out there.
