the next few months, the FDA will hold a public meeting to discuss its recent
actions to clamp down on the use of autologous stem cell treatments. This is
when a doctor removes adult stem cells from a patient, processes them, and
returns the cells to the same patient.
Unsurprisingly, the agency is
claiming that even if your own stem cells are being used to treat you, if those
cells are not directly related to the part of your body being treated, they
constitute a drug and in effect can’t be used.
Even if stem cells are
intended to treat an ailment or chronic disease that is directly related to the
source of the stem cells, they must also meet the government’s absurdly
restrictive definition of “minimally manipulated” to avoid being regulated like
drugs. If the FDA goes through with its proposals, exciting discoveries that
could alleviate the suffering of millions of patients could either be delayed for
years, be lost forever, or cost a fortune.
Tell the FDA you won’t stand
for the government preventing you from being healed by your own body!
