The Fda Follies

The Fda Follies

(1994)
A non fiction book by

 
How the agency responsible for ensuring the safety of America's food and drugs became the target of constant attacks from the media, Congress, and public interest groups is the subject of this book. Published just as America is debating health policy, this story of corruption and ineptitude is a timely expose of a vital agency. It contains much damning information about the FDA's long-standing deference to the drug industry, scandalous mishandling of generic drug regulations, misguided approach to the AIDS crisis, multiple failures to police seriously the nation's food supply and uninformed regulation of new medical equipment. Herbert Burkholz is the author of such novels as "The Sensitives", "Strange Bedfellows" and "Brain Damage".
