Government kills your children

Business Pundit has an article on "The 15 riskiest children's products you can buy"

From the article:
"Children's Medicine. Over nearly 20 years, Tylenol has been plagued with massive recalls on a variety of their products, mostly due to sins repeated."

From Wikipedia:
"The Food and Drug Administration (FDA or USFDA) is an agency of the United States Department of Health and Human Services, ... responsible for protecting and promoting public health through the regulation and supervision of ... prescription and over-the-counter pharmaceutical drugs (medications)"

While the other 14 products are "apparently" also being supervised by government I found the warning on children's medicine the most telling. 20 years of "sins repeated" spans time in office by both the red and the blue teams.

This is the system that is meant to run financial markets, create laws, look after the environment, fight the "war on drugs" and provide social security. Twenty years and they can't even ensure that the medicine you put in your child is uncontaminated?

Don't believe the hype.
