The Science Board of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which oversees prescription drugs, issued a report highlighting the fact that the FDA has failed to do the job required of the agency in an adequate manner. Despite the fact that the world looks to the FDA as a leader in medicine and science, the FDA cannot fulfill its mission because its scientific workforce does not have sufficient capacity and capability. As an unfortunate result, many dangerous prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications are approved for market each year, placing American lives at risk.
