And it doesn’t stop there. According to the FDA, in most cases, our own cells are drugs too. An FDA panel member even went so far as to state that our blood is an FDA-regulated drug.
For example, if your doctor wants to remove a small sample of bone marrow from your hip and inject part of it into your knee because she has read the literature and believes it can help you heal without surgery, the FDA says that’s verboten because you guessed it – it’s a drug that is subject to the full FDA drug approval process.
As the FDA becomes increasingly intrusive in our lives, restricting the ability of licensed medical doctors to practice medicine, one has to wonder where it all will end? The answer seems to be that once the FDA has its way, our bodies, down to the very last cell, will be classified as drugs, and therefore subject to federal regulation by the FDA.
If you agree that the FDA has no business outlawing the use of your own fat tissue to reconstruct your breasts, please spread the word and ask your friends, family members and doctors to let the FDA know what you think before September 27th by commenting here: https://www.regulations.gov/comment?D=FDA-2014-D-1856-0061
