The FDA is on the verge of deciding the
future of fecal microbiota transplants (FMT), a promising new treatment that
harnesses the power of the gut microbiome to fight illness. The agency is
poised to regulate FMT as new drugs, which means patients will be paying
thousands of dollars for human poop. This is yet another example of why
medicine is so expensive in this country: the FDA takes affordable, natural
treatments—as natural and humble as human feces!—and gifts them to Big Pharma
to reap mega-profits.
Write to Congress and the FDA, telling them not to regulate FMT like drugs!
Don't regulate FMTs like drugs
