    Drugs approved that kill human--too many examples after luanched and used for a period of time

    Because a drug is approved for humans does not make it entirely safe or even good medicine for the problem at hand. Look at Cox-2 drugs, like Vioxx and Bexta. Both were approved for humans, even though they have never been shown to me more effective than aspirin, and then analysis of Phase IV trials revealed that both of these drugs were implicated in killing people (Vioxx alone may have cost over 20,000 human lives).
