Panel hits FDA on health devices

More on the near-totality of FDA corruption:

The FDA asked dozens of companies to track the safety of devices used by children, whose growing bodies and active lifestyles can tax the products in ways not studied before approval. But the FDA could not say which studies had been completed or whether its requests had been ignored. And the agency rarely told the public what it learned about device safety, said a committee convened by the Institute of Medicine, the federal government's adviser on public health.
