Long story short: people with the FDA have close connections with hedgies. The whole system is completely corrupt. That's how a safe treatment like this gets slapped down, yet you can turn on the TV and see that Abbott or GlaxoSmithKline managed to get out a new drug for depression/hair loss/some imaginary condition with warnings that they could make your sphincter explode out of your eye socket or result in death by face herpes.
That's what bugs me about him...even he will admit that he is 50/50 at best (even in today's blog he says that)...yet his positions are SO heavily biased and partisan. The lack of track record combined with such strong opinions tells me he has poor sources and his writing is just driven by special interest. People who say he's a tool for hedgies have a strong case.
