Why Are U.S. Reps. Garcia, Lee and Rangel Lying for Castro Pharma?
The recent letter devised by U.S. Reps. Joe Garcia (D-FL), Barbara Lee (D-CA) and Charlie Rangel (D-NY), among others, pushing for Castro’s latest bio-scam makes the following accusation:
“Despite the high burden of disease, patients and physicians in the U.S. are frustrated, not only by the lack of an effective treatment, but by the lack of a U.S. Pharmaceutical/Biotech effort at developing potential treatments for severe DFU (diabetic foot ulcers).”
This statement is blatantly dishonest.
Indeed it is, as a quick search will show (including stem-cell research conducted across the USA), but CHC went further,
With the help of medical professionals, we’ve been able to easily track down a host of treatments for DFU, most of which have already been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
These include Terrasil, Apligraf, Excellagen, MIST Therapy, Regranex, Dermagraft, ArterioFlow 7500, HealOr, dermaPACE, Grafix, et. al.
Why the lie, then?
Because this whole scam is more about anti-U.S., pro-Castro propaganda, than any serious medical effort.
