Check your medications & make sure that no drug ingredients are made in China. Better safe than sorry. Stay safe from Chinese made “adulterated” drugs based on fake data. The following is based on a Letter in WSJ August 4, 2018.
In 2017, the most warning letters for adulterated drugs issued by the FDA (see fda.gov) went to Chinese drug manufacturers. India was close behind.
One example: the anti-hypertensive drug valsartin — made in China — was recently recalled, One safe and simple solution, many cardiologists moved their patients to a different medication. But what if you like varsartin and want made in USA medications?
One excellent resource in Aptos, CA is Frank’s Pharmacy. If you or someone you know likes varsartin, you can get USA made valsartin through Frank’s Pharmacy.
China is now one of the biggest producers of drugs and drug products in the world.
Chinese drug products appear to be not trust worthy because info about them is based on fake data. Radio Free Asia reports that an internal review in 2016 by Chinese drugs regulators showed that the Chinese fabricated the test results.
One resource available through Amazon books and on Kindle is ” China RX : Exposing the Risks of America’s Dependence on China for Medicine”.
Can someone explain why one must pay via Amazon $12 for a Kindle electronic copy of “China RX” and $14 for a paper copy? Shame on Jeff Bezos!
