Did the FDA set 'a dangerous precedent' with its latest drug approval?

My answer: Yes. It's tantamount to selling hope, not offering hope. How is what the FDA did by ignoring the scientific data any different from quackery and selling snake oil? The FDA has now compromised its credibility and legitimacy to enforce anti-quackery laws in the US. How can they say that another individual's or company's health claims are without scientific merit and penalize those claims if they, the FDA themselves, approve products without scientific merit? The difference is when you do it, it's breaking the law (quackery). When the FDA does it, it's legalized quackery.
