Speaking of Principled Religious Debate

A U.S. advisory panel weighed potential limits on Thursday for widely used asthma drugs to address long-held concerns that they raise the risk of death and serious asthma attacks.

The inhaled drugs include one of the world's top-sellers, GlaxoSmithKline PLC's Advair, as well as AstraZeneca PLC's blockbuster Symbicort.

Doctors appealed to the Food and Drug Administration advisory panel to keep the medicines known as long-acting beta agonists (LABAs) available for asthma therapy.

Dr. Stanley Szefler said the drugs are better than alternatives for keeping the lung disease under control and asthma attacks were likely to increase without them.

Oh NO!!! Not advisory Panels discussing Policy!!!

Not more brutal intervention into the Free Trade In Free Markets!!!!

Clearly ONLY a Permenant tax cut for capital gains tax will stop Gay HomoZeXual Marriages that clearly are the cause of these sorts of discussion about the social risk of allowing various scientific issues to move forward.

{ in the new spirit of Glasnost, I have COPD, and use some of the drugs referenced, so it is not like I am advocating Permenant tax cuts for light and transient reasons. }
