FDA Approves Drugs Faster Than Ever But Relies on Weaker Evidence, Researchers Find

6

"The Food and Drug Administration has gotten faster at approving new prescription drugs over the past four decades, but the evidence it relies on in making those decisions is getting weaker, according to new research published [this month]. As a result, there are more cures and treatments on the market but less proof that they are safe and effective."

10k run: 45’ exactly. 3:40 PR!


A lap around my block is 1,030m including a slight incline for 400m and a similar 400m decline. Since the tenth lap is a partial, I only had to do half the incline on that lap while still enjoying the benefits of the full decline, so that probably helped my time for a few seconds.

Britons of a certain age remember the thalidomide tragedy, from which the US was spared by the FDA's deliberate speed.

Yes, Terence, thanks to Dr. Frances Kelsey, the FDA employee in the early 1960s who resisted intense pharma pressure to push thalidomide through the approval process despite incomplete data.


You may find her story (shared on CrossFit.com last year) of interest.


“The thalidomide tragedy was averted in the United States because Dr. Kelsey, alone and in the face of fierce opposition, did her job. …[N]o one else stopped it anywhere else until it was too late. Dr. Kelsey was the only person in the entire world who said no. She said no to a bad drug application, she said no to an overbearing pharmaceutical company and she said no to vested interests who put profits first.”

If only my local store stocked blue water, I could do this at home. (This is first, humor, but secondly, a comment about the mind finding excuses for not starting. Of course, you don't need blue water, so start making the most of what you got.)

Its crazy to me how the push for more drugs and faster keeps going up. I get it that drugs can help people, but from my perspective people are being kept in the dark for the most part on the process or the side effects or the fact that these are not as thoroughly tested as they once were... to me its scary to think about my parents or my friends going to a doctor (someone you have to put trust in) and then maybe getting a medication that potentially does more harm than good..... at the same time, it seems almost no emphasis in our society is put on changing your lifestyle, which yes takes effort to do, but why can't the simple solution of lifestyle or diet, if it fixes the problem be the answer, its cheaper, its got less negative side effects... if its just about money and big business, then this is a highly unethical industry, if its really about making people better and creating a healthier society then more effort being put into what puts us in these chronic disease states in the first place, and how to keep them from happening, not just what pill can mitigate the symptoms

People die waiting for drugs to be approved through the FDA’s massively bureaucratic processes, and of course people have always died when *approved* drugs turn out to be toxic or have deadly side effects, despite the Byzantine approvals. The faster approvals process will reduce development costs and speed innovation. Is it an unalloyed good that involves no trade-offs? Of course not. Nothing is. Increased risk is the price of progress in any human endeavor. We should celebrate shorter approvals.

We should celebrate better health and that begins with risk free interventions that far outweigh the limited benefits of more drugs.

Champions Club scaling Notes


RANT

Oh, I misread this at first. I did our usual 5k run sub. What a convenient mistake. I have never run a 10k in my life, and I've only run/rowed a 5k once each. So my notes might not he the best here. But I do think it's safe to say stamina would be the theme here more than endurance. The thing about stamina, though, is consistency has to be maintained - otherwise we're just sludging through for no reason (unless it's a legit race/competition). So cadence for either one will be the point of emphasis. If you start to dip below the 180ish mark on the run, stop for a bit and carry on if/when you recover. No idea what that would be for a row.


PURPOSE

Test how well our short duration stuff translates into long duration efforts


NEW TO CROSSFIT SCALE

Scroll back a few and pick a different one. Max effort/single modality days would not be my recommendation for someone's first CrossFit workout. Of do our 5k run sub - AMRAP in 20 minutes of: 200m run, 30 lunges, 15-sec. L-sit


TRAINING SCALE

See the rant. Pick either a faster-than-you-can-normally-maintain pace and stay with it for as long as you can, then rest for a bit, then come at it again.


PRACTICE SCALE

Do 8 400m runs separately, but start each one with :30 of specific running drills then try and carry that into the run. Same for row.


GROUP SCALE

AMRAP in 40 minutes of: 800m run, 40 squats, 20 box jumps (step down)


INJURY SCALE

If it's a lower body injury that prevents running or biking then I'd save this one for later. I'd try to pick 3 movements you can do at a good pace that can last for 25 minutes.


WARMUP

Jump rope - always

Squat - hip prep

Hollow rock - midline prep

Kipping - global extension/flexion +hanging


GENERAL FEAR LEVEL: 8 I would guess.

Hi Chris, dumb question sorry;


I read your posts every day (like all posts, thanks y’all). I think your box follows the main site programming, but sometimes you’re a bit behind. How do you decide which wod to take, what to skip etc. Do you keep the 3-day circle or anything else? I

keep track of the wods since 190101. Because of unwanted breaks I’m 60 wods behind (did 338 out of 398), now it keeps getting harder and harder (and pickier) what to do…

So it's completely by feel. My bias definitely plays into it. I like those 8-20 minute couplets triplets more than I do max effort days. During the holidays when the college kids are back, or Summer when we have some Theme Workouts come up, we'll be more behind than usual. So if a workout gets pushed back/skipped it will usually be a max effort day. I'm sure that leaves some holes in our fitness. There was a period of time in spring 2016 (I think) when we followed the 3-on 1-off cycle as it was. I really liked that. I am thinking about bringing it back this winter/spring too.


This old clip of Dave Castro from the CFJ always comes into my head; when someone asked Dave what to do when you miss a workout, he said basically just pick up with the next one. Again, your bias is always going to be a factor and that's okay. If you've only missed 60 workouts out of hundreds of possible ones, you're doing just fine.

INTENDED STIMULUS


The real question is: what kind of soreness would you rather not have? Butt, or legs? Nah, not really. Let's not approach this workout with fear. We are crossfitters. We like to lift heavy, we like to do gymnastics fast and we love to grind. We thrive in variability. We are happy when shit is hard and makes us better. This workout is a tad unusual for us, but also not really. It is just long. Let's kill it!


Don't overthink the choice here, pick one between running or rowing and go for it. Make sure you warm up your movement well. Efficient technique is essential in a long workout like this one. In a 500-m sprint, you can destroy the rower pulling with your back, and not much happens. In a 10-km poor movement adds up. Athletes that are not used to run these long distances and that tend to get really sore when running can consider a mix of running and walking. Athletes that are not sure about their pacing or that are not used to working out for this extended time can go for time instead of distance. Attack this with the same intention and grit you would attack your favorite benchmark. GRIND!
