An essential tool of natural health
is medical testing. But the FDA recently issued a report detailing twenty case
studies of supposedly inaccurate or misleading tests—an attempt to bring such
medical tests under its authority. If the FDA takes over testing and only
approves the tests that the big testing labs can do (and that the insurance
companies or Medicare will pay for), there is no future for integrative
medicine and little future for medicine as a whole.
What the FDA is doing is not legal—the agency lacks the
authority to regulate laboratory-developed tests (LDTs). This responsibility
belongs to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) alone. Write to
the FDA and tell them to stop violating the law and stop harassing innovators
in the LDT field.
