Frustrated With The FDA

My father is in his 80's and he is wondering how long it will take before the FDA releases the much needed chemical Sodium Dichloroacetate to the public to control cancers. He had been on a regimen with success of taking 10 mg/kg body weight of DCA until last week when the FDA pulled the product from being available to the public. He has almost gotten to recession of his cancer, but now, we fear without the chemical, he will become unstable again.

How can the FDA people sleep at nights knowing there are people dependant upon medications to cure cancer, people who have been successful with the protocol developed killing cancer cells at an astonishing rate, going from stage 4e down to stage 1 in 6 months time? How do they sleep? This Sodium Dichloroacetate or DCA has been around forever, and all of a sudden when there is news of people killing their cancer without the side effects associated with chemo, they just up and pull it off the market, but it's still available all around the world? It just doesn't make good since. I am quite appalled with the FDA at the moment. Do you think the FDA will release the restrictions they have imposed on this? My elderly father is wondering as his life hangs in the balance.

I have found over the years that the Federal Drug Administration studies long and hard before they make their decisions. As the only federal department that can put a drug ON the market, and they are the only group that can take a drug OFF the market. I suggest you contact the FDA directly via phone or email to discuss your father’s situation. You may get an answer as well as a time-frame.
