Well, it’s about time!

One would think thatrepparttar FDA would be a reliable source of confidence when it comes to consideringrepparttar 148958 safety of medications. And one would think that those persons who conduct studies on drugs for human consumption would haverepparttar 148959 credibility to be trusted to submit honest reports for perusal by anyone asking. But, public faith and trust inrepparttar 148960 FDA is quickly fading away.

Quotes such as this one, from Dr. David Graham, senior drug safety researcher atrepparttar 148961 FDA, only serve to increaserepparttar 148962 public concern. “On 9/11, 3000 people died. With Vioxx, ten to fifteen times that number died . . . . it is a national catastrophe.” As pharmaceutical companies argue over whyrepparttar 148963 public was not provided withrepparttar 148964 true hazards of consuming their products, recent news articles explainrepparttar 148965 heart attack and stroke risks of taking Pfizer’s product, Vioxx, and Merck’s product, Celebrex. Sadly, it would seem that an organization set up to protect us ultimately cannot be trusted. So, ifrepparttar 148966 FDA is unreliable in certifyingrepparttar 148967 safety of common pain-relieving drugs, where does a person with chronic pain turn? Perhapsrepparttar 148968 answer lies in natural products. In India, an herb called Boswellia (known in biblical times as Frankincense) has been used for thousands of years as a proven pain reliever for overworked joints. It acts much likerepparttar 148969 well-known non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and those anti-inflammatory effects make it beneficial for ulcerative colitis, inflammatory bowel syndrome, asthma, and other respiratory problems.
