Longtime Libertarian writer and activist Dr Mary Ruwart has a must -read book: Death by Regulation. This book draws on her years as a medical researcher for Upjohn pharmaceuticals, her knowledge of libertarian philosophy, and her passion for Liberty to explain how the 1962 amendments to the Food and Drug Administration Act, which gave the FDA the power to price a drug based on efficiency as well as safety, not only stripped individuals of the ability to make their own health care decisions, while enriching big pharmaceutical companies, it has literally killed people.
For example, the FDA prevented Americans from learning of how aspirin can help those with heart problems for years. This knowledge could have saved thousands of lives. The FDA continues to delay and deny Americans from reviving life-saving cures and knowledge about how minor adjustments to their diets can help avoid certain illnesses.
Campaign for Liberty Chairman Ron Paul, who wrote the foreword for the book says:
While I was serving in Congress, Dr. Ruwart was working at Upjohn,
a drug company known for its ground-breaking research. Step-by-step,
she shows how the Amendments, even today, are re-shaping the FDA, the
drug industry, and the field of medical practice, while shifting us away
from a prevention paradigm to a treatment-based one. You’ll want to
read this book carefully: your life may depend on it.
