The author reflects on the role of the medical scientists and physicians in helping the society to be aware and conversant on the policies imposed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). He cites the impact of the FDA's policies on the developmental course of any preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic agents in the country. The author also argues that the publication of his book "The FDA for Doctors" will not be of interests to physicians.
