FDA leaves cancer-causing foot gel on the market

Ever wonder what the Rockville rowdys are up to at tax-payer expense? Maybe it is just pushing harmful drugs through the revolving door, with not regard for your health.

Maybe these folks enjoy a work environment where Big Pharma has a gun at their head and a hand in their wallet.

And, of course, this is not the only example!

There are very effective ways to prevent and heal skin ulcers that many people with diabetes suffer with from time to time. These are natural treatments so it is very unlikely that you will learn about them from mainstream medicine.

You might do better to have a visit with a podiatrist. Here you might learn about a papaya based ointment.

Even the most seemingly innocent drugs can carry fatal side effects. The FDA just announced a study showing that the foot gel Regranex could be causing cancer. And yet, amazingly, Regranex is still on the market!

The prescription foot gel is manufactured by Johnson & Johnson and is often used by diabetics who develop leg and foot ulcers that are difficult to heal.

Apparently, diabetics who'd been prescribed the gel three or more times were at increased risk of death from cancer. With incredible gall, the spokesperson for J&J insisted that Regranex is safe when used as directed. What? This is a topical foot gel—if these people are applying it to the sores on their feet and legs, they ARE using it as directed. Should any foot gel be capable of giving you CANCER!? Does this make sense to you?
