Here’s a bit of research that hasn’t appeared in any major (or minor) media as far as I can tell. If you know Senator Grassley, please feel free to pass it along.
* The vast majority of physicians (85%) are confident in the safety of the drugs approved by the FDA.
* 86% of doctors are confident that the FDA has strict and stringent standards for determining if a drug is safe.
* Nearly three quarters of physicians (71%) indicated that FDA approval is one of the most important factors to consider prior to prescribing a medication.
The survey was conducted by HCD Health and the Muhlenberg College Institute of Public Opinion. They surveyed a nationally representative sample of 1,039 primary care physicians.
