    Miles, How much $ from the 14 products?

    It's a question of degree. How safe and effective
    do we want our medical products to be? That question
    can't be answered, 'as safe as possible'. We must
    assume that if government devoted all its resources to
    ensuring safe medicine, we'd have safer products. But we
    don't do that do we?

    At some point we decide
    the next dollar spent or regulation imposed to
    improve safety isn't worth the sacrifice of freedom. It's
    quite simple isn't it?

    So I ask you again, has
    the FDA crossed the line in your book? The board
    awaits your response.
