Valisure, A pharmacy That Tests Drugs

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Valisure is a new type of pharmacy that tests OTC, prescription and supplements.  I read about it in the September 16, 2019 issue of Bloomberg Business week.  The article was called “How carcinogens and other impurities end up in the drug supply” by Susan Berfield, Evelyn Yu and Anna Edney.  

“Over 90% of the pharmaceuticals sold in the U.S. are generics.”

“80% of the active ingredients are produced overseas, where FDA inspectors are declining.”

”the FDA checks less than 1% of the for impurities or potencies”

This new pharmacy is planning on launching gluten free testing program.  Wouldn’t that be nice

Shocking!  I thought I only had to worry about gluten in my meds.  And if you think big pharmaceuticals are looking out for you.  Nope.  They buy generics from India and China and do not test.  No oversight!
