Confusion Abounds

There are a lot of rumors floating around the Internet regarding the shortage of natural thyroid medication.

Some who have been in contact with the FDA say it is due to past problems with a heparin compound that was recalled because it contained ingredients manufactured in China and contaminated with the same melamine that became known for killing countless thousands of pets back in 2007.

Some say the shortage is due to FDA halting production until such time as the drugs can go through the FDA approval process, even though (as others say) the drugs are supposed to be grandfathered.

I sure hope someone gets with the program and puts an end to all of this. Bottom line is, a lot of us are going to get sick. If this is even a shadow of how things will be under Obamacare, we all need to be afraid.
