FDA Suffers Legal Defeat

Thousands of people die while waiting for therapies to gain FDA approval. Now a federal court has ruled the FDA cannot deny critically ill patients their constitutional right to access potentially lifesaving therapies.

As We See It

The FDA recently approved fish oil as a prescription drug. While the FDA’s recognition of fish oil’s lifesaving benefits is commendable, this approval provides a regulatory platform to enable drug companies to earn outlandish profits. In fact, this prescription fish oil drug costs nearly eight times more than what Life Extension members pay for their fish oil concentrate! Learn why this government-sanctioned marketing scheme may cause unwitting, cash-strapped consumers to pay exorbitant prices for prescription fish oil.
