The FDA recently has approved a certain antibiotic, knowing it has dangerous side-effects, and without reviewing them. Now it has started killing patients, there is a possible recall in order, and the personal injury attorneys are lining up to jump on this.
But let's go ahead and require 9 year old girls to get Gardasil before it has even been approved for a year. Never mind that we don't have any long-term data on the effects of this vaccine yet. Remember how hard Merck is pushing this vaccine that "may prevent" (notice they know better than to say "does") a common STD.
Merck obviously hasn't learned from Vioxx, with which injury attorneys are still having a field day.
