The FDA has been on a campaign to ban a natural plant called kratom, that many say is a wonderful pain reliever. People use kratom for opiate withdrawal, cough, depression, anxiety, and many others, but there is no scientific evidence (not a money maker)to support these uses.
How does it work?
Kratom contains a chemical called mitragynine. Mitragynine works like opioid drugs such as codeine and morphine to relieve pain.
The FDA, as history will show isn’t about promoting anything natural that can be grown in a backyard garden and do amazing things for health, but promoting big pharma drugs where there aren’t decades of use. Already, the FDA has outlawed “kratom” in five U.S. states. A clear indicator that another plant like marijuana has many wonderful uses and has to be eliminated for profits. History continues to open the doors of deception and fraud upon the people for greed, control, and power. Actions of individuals and organizations continue to show those who support the people, and those whose only goal is to make more money!!!
Who does the Food and Drug Administration work for…the people or profiteering Big Pharma???
FDA Approves Painkiller 1,000X More Powerful Than Morphine Despite Epidemic of Drug Overdoses & Natural Alternatives (Just What America Needs…More People Doped Up and Dumbed Down???
In an extremely irresponsible move,* the FDA just approved a painkiller 1,000 times stronger than morphine, despite the fact that the U.S. is already experiencing a deadly opioid drug crisis that takes over 100 lives a day. On Nov. 2nd, U.S regulators approved a fast-acting, extremely potent opioid tablet 10 times more powerful than Fentanyl called Dsuvia, developed as an alternative to IV painkillers. This decision comes with a backdrop of reports of tens of thousands of annual deaths caused by overdoses from pharmaceutical opioid-type painkillers throughout the United States. According to a NY Daily News article,
“The drug’s manufacturer, AcelRx, said the drug will be marketed with the name Dsuvia and cost between $50 and $60 per dose.”
Lawmakers and consumer advocacy groups have expressed deep concern about this decision. For instance, Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., released the following statement on Friday: “There was no public health need to approve this formulation of supercharged fentanyl in the face of these questions, opposition from one FDA advisory committee chair, and without the full participation of another advisory committee devoted to drug safety.”
On the same day Public Citizen released a statement titled, “FDA Makes Wrong Call; Super-Strong Opioid Medication Will Be Abused and Kill People,” which describes how the FDA rigged the committee vote to ensure a positive recommendation. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), “Opioid overdoses accounted for more than 42,000 deaths in 2016, more than:
