People already get cosmetic surgical changes. We are constantly trying to modify our bodies through clothing, piercings, tattoo, make-up, exercise and diet. What's the difference? People should be able to do what they want with their bodies No, never why would anyone want change anything about themselves? I mean I'm perfect. Is the FDA responsible for the death of people who can't get treatments caused by the expensive and long process required for FDA approval? Yes, they are. Helping people who are currently suffering and dying should be prioritized over making the safest drug possible. No, the FDA should not be responsible for deaths that could be prevented by a quicker drug approval process. This question is stupid and so is this quiz. The FDA has no responsibility to anyone but drug companies and politicians. The FDA is definitely bad at risk analysis and so probably, yes.
