Drugwatch: How the FDA Has Let Women Down

How the FDA let women down coverDrugwatch, a publication of the Petersen law firm, goes above and beyond in this article ‘How the FDA has Let Down Women.”

The agency has dropped the ball on women’s health issues from the power morcellator to the Essure birth control device, surgical pelvic mesh and on and on.  Reporter, researcher, Michele Llamas writes an excellent big picture story of the many ways the FDA is not protecting women, the majority consumer of medical products and procedures.

“When it comes to the availability of life-saving medical products and the safety of drugs and devices, men still have the upper hand. One of the greatest and most powerful health agencies in the world, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), is a big part of the problem.”

    The FDA has let down women and men alike with mesh issues. Its a tragic state of the medical system that the FDA has not recalled these life destroying devices.

      Wholeheartedly agree with you Francine. Please, if you have not already done so, contact FDA with your opinion. There is a page on their website where you can comment fairly extensively…I think you get there via (predictably) “Comments” or “Contact the FDA” or something like that. IMHO we should all do that. It is a good place to express outrage for those who have not yet done so.
