No cow needed: Oat and soy can be called milk, FDA proposes
"The Food and Drug Administration is proposing that you don't need a cow to make milk. With things like almond milk and soy milk on the market, dairy producers have been pushing the FDA to crack down on plant based milk, saying it's a masquerade and clouds the real meaning of milk. But guidance from the FDA says these drinks don't pretend to be from cows and consumers aren't confused by the difference. Under the draft rules, the agency recommends labeling a product clearly by the plant source of the food. The rules also call for voluntary extra nutrition labels that note when the drinks have lower levels of nutrients than dairy milk, such as calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D, sales of non dairy milk are dwarfed by sales of traditional milk.

FDA moves to ease rules for blood donations from gay men
"Federal health regulators are taking steps to allow more people to donate blood by lifting some of the restrictions on gay men and others who are considered at higher risk of having the HIV virus. Current policy is gay bisexual men and others who engage in high risk behavior. Have to show abstinence for three months before donating blood. But doctor Peter marks a hematologist and a director at the Food and Drug Administration says better screening can end that waiting period. The new approach proposes that the current donor history questionnaire be revised to ask all prospective donors regardless of their gender about new or multiple sexual partners in the past three months. If the change is adopted, some will still be turned away. But more people will be allowed to donate. We believe that there will be no change to risk in the blood supply in terms of HIV, hepatitis B or hepatitis C the U.S. began restricting blood donations during the aids crisis in the 80s, but LGBTQ groups and the American medical association say that's no longer needed with better testing technology.

FDA's advisers back plan to simplify COVID-19 vaccinations
"The FDA is working toward making coronavirus vaccines more like an annual flu shot. Scientific advisers for the Food and Drug Administration are helping to decide how and when to update the recipe for COVID-19 vaccinations, and whether Americans need once a year boosters at an advisory panel meeting Thursday, the FDA's vaccine chief, doctor Peter Marx, says vaccinations should be made simpler. In order to facilitate the process of optimally vaccinating and protecting the entire population moving forward. Members voted unanimously that people should get the same formula for initial vaccinations or a booster to protect against prevalent strains. Many questions remain, like whether young people would really need yearly boosters and whether people with weak immunity might need two doses right now more than 80% of Americans have had at least one COVID-19 shot, but only 16% of those eligible for the updated boosters have gotten one.

Justice Department investigating Abbott baby formula plant
"The Justice Department is investigating the infant formula plant that was shut down for months last year due to contamination. Abbott Laboratories says it's fully cooperating with the investigation into its Sturgis, Michigan facility. Abbott closed a factory after the Food and Drug Administration began investigating four bacterial infections among infants who consumed powdered formula from the plant. Inspectors uncovered several violations at the plant, including bacterial contamination, of leaky roof and lack safety protocols. But Abbott says its products have never been directly linked to the infections, which involved different bacterial strains. Abbott is just one of four companies that produce 90% of U.S. formula.

Twitter Censorship and the Covid Vaccine Debate
"The latest drop of the Twitter files comes from the journalist Alex berenson now. I've had Alex on the show some months ago now. And Alex has been focused on science reporting and of late specifically on reporting about COVID. And what's kind of interesting about these Twitter files is that Twitter files involve Alex themselves. So it's particularly appropriate that he be the one to blow the whistle on it. And I think Elon Musk is being very clever, very strategic. Matt taibbi, Barry Weiss, and now Alex Alex berns and there have been a couple of others as well. Now, this story begins with a guy named Scott gottlieb and Scott gottlieb is a director of Pfizer, Pfizer, the medical company. And he's kind of a big name on Twitter. He has about 550 thousand Twitter followers. In any event, it turns out that he sees a tweet gottlieb does. And he goes, wow, this is a tweet that may not be good for Pfizer. This is a tweet that might hurt Pfizer mRNA vaccine sales. And the tweet was from, yeah, it wasn't from some activist, wasn't from Robert F. Kennedy, junior wasn't even from berenson. It was from doctor Brett giroir, a physician who also had been himself as gottlieb was head of the Food and Drug Administration. And the tweet was not an anti vaccine tweet. In fact, it ended by saying get vaccinated, but the tweet went on to say, hey, listen, it says that the. Immunity that you get from the vaccine may not be as great as natural immunity. In fact, natural immunity provides more protection than vaccine immunity. Now, this is, in fact, a, an accurate statement by doctor Gerard. And in fact, the doctors cited a prominent study, a peer reviewed study that showed this. So it wasn't just that he was claiming it. It was that he was documenting it, and it's not even that Scott gottlieb disagreed with him. Start Scott gottlieb agreed that the factual statement being made was true.

US approves Alzheimer's drug that modestly slows disease
"The Food and Drug Administration has approved a drug that modestly slows Alzheimer's disease. It's called la chembe, also known as lakena mab. It's designed specifically for those with mild or early stage Alzheimer's. Doctor Sam Gandhi at New York's Mount Sinai hospital says it focuses on amyloid material that builds up in the brain. There's a particular type of amyloid called the oligomer. That's especially toxic, especially poisonous. And looking at is targeted toward that particular most toxic species. The delay in cognitive decline brought about by the drug likely amounts to just several months. We don't know what rate they would have progressed. If they hadn't gotten them the medication. So it's in terms of whether the drug buys them 5 months or so. It's hard to know how people can relate to that.

FDA finalizes rule expanding availability of abortion pills
"The Food and Drug Administration has finalized a rule change that removes a long-standing requirement that abortion pills be picked up in person.

Probe: Alzheimer's drug approval 'rife with irregularities'
"A report from congressional investigators finds many problems with the FDA's approval of a controversial Alzheimer's drug. Two House committees were investigating the Food and Drug Administration's approval of aju helm, made by Biogen, and reported the process was rife with irregularities, including an atypical collaboration between the regulators and the manufacturer. The report details in unusually high volume of phone calls, meetings, and emails. It also flagged Biogen documents, which said the company intended to make history with the high price of $56,000 a year for the drug. When the FDA approved aju helm in 2021, it overruled its own independent scientific advisers, leading some to resign. The investigators recommend the FDA take steps to restore trust in the approval process. Especially with a new Alzheimer's drug being considered in January. Jackie Quinn, Washington

"By Alice park. President Joe Biden nominated doctor Robert caliph, a former commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration to head the agency again. Biden's nomination will now go to Congress, which has to confirm caliph. Since Biden took office, health officials have been waiting for him to appoint a new head after doctor Stephen Hahn, who was widely criticized by the scientific community for not taking a stronger stand against the Trump administration's support of unproven COVID-19 therapies, left the post in January. The FDA is the regulatory agency responsible for reviewing the safety and efficacy of drugs, devices, and medical therapies, and is the key gatekeeper for evaluating new COVID-19 vaccines and drug treatments. Biden left the position open for nearly maximum time allowable by law, he had until November 15th to appoint a new commissioner, which some medical experts say have not helped public confidence in the agency's decisions in the meanwhile. On the other hand, Biden appointed doctor Rochelle Walensky to take charge of the Centers for Disease Control in December, even before he himself took office. The FDA has been mired in controversy throughout the pandemic, early in 2020, the agency granted emergency use authorization for hydroxychloroquine, the malaria medication that early studies suggested might help to treat COVID-19 and was championed by Trump, but turned out not to provide much benefit. The agency later withdrew its authorization. In August 2020, the FDA also granted an EUA for convalescent plasma or plasma obtained from recovered COVID-19 patients and re infused to help new patients. But later limited issues to plasma from certain types of patients who had the most robust responses to their natural infection. Then in June of this year, the FDA approved a controversial Alzheimer's drug the first treatment for the disease, despite concerns raised by many Alzheimer's experts about the robustness of the data showing benefit for patients as measured by cognitive tests. FDA officials also met with one of the drug company scientists at a scientific conference, which may have been inappropriate for a regulatory agency that is tasked with objectively reviewing safety and efficacy data for a drug. Caliph, a heart disease expert at duke university, served as head of the FDA for a year under president Barack Obama, he brings to the agency a strong understanding of the clinical trial process, which provides the data the FDA reviews in order to approve new drugs, having served as vice Chancellor for clinical and translational health at duke university. It was also a senior adviser to Verily life sciences and Google health. However, there have been concerns raised about where his allegiance is lie. During his September 2016 nomination hearing for the role under the Obama administration, he was grilled by several Democrats, including senators Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders, who questioned his close ties to the pharmaceutical industry. In a 2017 podcast, caliph admitted that during the hearings, Warren put me through hell and questioning how clinical trials work in the relationship and role of industry in that process. During caliph's brief tenure at the FDA, he overruled the advice of the agency's expert advisory committee on the drug at a person, a new treatment for muscular dystrophy. The committee thought the risks of the drug outweighed the benefits, caliph approved the drug backing the decision of his officials making the argument that under accelerated approval, which kicks in when there is an unmet need and no available treatments for a rare condition, FDA has authority to grant approval, it believes is in the best interests of patients. Already, senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia, a Democrat who opposed caliph's first nomination over his perceived closeness to pharmaceutical interests that perpetuated the opioid crisis, voiced his continued opposition to caliph taking over the FDA. Doctor Calif nomination and his significant ties to the pharmaceutical industry take us backwards, not forward. Mansion said in a statement reacting to Biden's choice. His nomination is an insult to the many families and individuals who have had their lives changed forever as a result of addiction. I could not support doctor calas nomination in 2016, and I can not support it now. Still, in 2016, caliph was ultimately confirmed by an 89 to four vote..
