The American Prospect examines the deregulation trend in the pharmaceutical industry. The report finds that laws passed in 1992 and 1997 "left the Food and Drug Administration beholden to the very industry it is supposed to regulate, and the public vulnerable to unsafe drugs." The story reveals that more than 100,000 Americans die each year from adverse reactions to prescription drugs. However, President Bush, who received contributions of $456,000 from the pharmaceutical industry, will likely prove receptive to drug companies' pleas for additional deregulation, points out the magazine.
