My cousin works for the Federal Drug Administration and I had no idea how many years it took for a drug to get out on the market. A drug like my new iris eye gel has to go through years of testing to make sure that it would not harm the people that are taking it. It goes from animal testing and notes are taken there to human testing if it is deemed safe enough. Some of the drugs are deemed not safe at all due to the fact that the animals died while they were being tested on. It would not be good for a human being to take those drugs.
