The FDA does far more harm than good in the medical and biological related fields - something not understood by most people in the population. Aspirin, if introduced today, would have no chance of being able to pass FDA procedures. People who are dying should get whatever help they need, they know the risks.
Anyone who has been diagnosed with a terminal illness realizes that they have faced the worst and there is nothing left to lose. If that person decides to try a treatment that has not yet been clinically approved, he or she should be allowed and maybe help themselves or scientific knowledge.
I believe that those who have terminal diagnoses should be
able to take advantage of those treatments that are not yet clinically approved. When someone’s life is in danger, they should
be able to do anything necessary in order to save or extend their life. It shouldn’t matter whether or not the
treatment is approved.
Those who have terminal diagnoses should be able to take advantage of those treatments that are not yet clinically approved. I think it should be left up to the patient to try something radical and new without needing clinically approval. By the time it was approved, it could be too late for the patient anyways. Why not try something new and hope for the best?
Terminal diagnoses are heartbreaking for families, but even more so for people who don't think that their time on this earth has yet passed. If we took away or restricted their access to treatments that have yet to be clinically approved, quite simply, we take away their hope. That can often be more fatal than the disease itself.
