Day 52 – My journey to find reasons to vote for Hillary rather than just against Trump.

Hillary knows that children aren’t adults and made sure pharma recognizes that too.

Until Hillary and a couple other Senators took it on, there was no special testing for the different ways in which children’s bodies react to, and metabolize, drugs – and which drugs are appropriate for children – or not.

This falls, again, under the theme of her identifying the gaps in existing law and filling it. It also suggests that she is willing to take on the FDA and the drug companies when it falls under one of the areas of concern for her.
