Forbes wrote that his close ties to the drug industry were the reason for him not being nominated for the FDA Commissioner position in 2009. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Califf#Relationships_with_the_pharmaceutical_industry
America make sure this doesn’t occur, American Citizens are not going to trust ‘Unknown’ Men from another country to develop drugs/products that they deem safe for human consumption. If that was the case; why are there so many lawsuits against international pharmaceutical corporations? International Pharmaceutical Corporations and their international ‘Board Members’ and other ‘International partners are using the American people as, guniea pigs, just to gain a dollar! The pharmaceutical industry in America is ‘Deadly Tainted’ with various drugs and products, procedures, that are questionable! International Pharmaceutical Corporations are importing drugs into the U.S. and marketing to the American people as safe, after paying off (Key Players) at the FDA, NIH and CDC. So be aware America of the risk if Califf is appointed!
For the ‘Protection’ and ‘Safety,’ of the U.S., the ‘American People’ this seat needs to be appointed to a ‘American Born Doctor’ with NO international ties!
