NEW YORK, NY – In a bold move this weekend, the FDA announced that natural health products must prove they work before they can be sold at stores and clinics.
In the past, alternative health supplements have fallen into a sort of grey area where manufacturers are only required to prove they won’t kill anyone; not that they actually work. As per the FDA:
“Dietary supplement manufacturers and distributors are not required to obtain approval from FDA before marketing dietary supplements.”
Naturally, naturopaths, homeopaths and chiropractors are outraged.
“This is ridiculous. The FDA has been bought out by Big Pharma,” said Paul Therro, fake doctor. “It’s bad enough they make us prove that our products won’t hurt people, but now they are going to make us prove they work too??”
Pharmaceutical drugs must pass rigorous testing and clinical trials before being approved for use, often costing hundreds of millions of dollars in research and development.
Prominent alternative medicine salesmen Joseph Mercola, Josh Axe and David Wolfe reportedly looked between their couch cushions and found upwards of $5 million which they will be using for an aggressive promotional and social media campaign against the new law.
