"Welcome to the new FDA -- more drug warnings and fewer drug approvals."

At least they're being honest with the drugs that they do release. I prefer that to the release of just anything..I'd rather they're picky with what I can legally put into my body eh..Sorry, I thought it was funny that the article regarded their skepticism and caution as foolish. What we might take for a given some people might not ever have thought of without the proper warning >_> I say this as a victim of brain fog lol..

Fungal and yeast secondary infections are relatively common in CD'ers anyway. How is it they have determined it a direct cause of TNF drugs in a whopping dozen people? Fungal infections are also quite common among the general population of post operative intensive care patients which have died and the cause of death is rarely if ever listed as a secondary fungal infection...more likely renal, heart or respiratory failure. Oh, what lurks among us in the microscopic world....good and bad! My bet is they are just covering their arses on that one!
