Supplemental Prompt 9 Binoy Bhatt The principles of democracy have governed the US and allowed it to flourish for the past  several centuries. The laws that have been set forth provide for a common set of rules that not  only protect its citizens, but also protect their individual rights. In the 1950’s, the FDA urged Congress to pass a law for new drug administration to  protect a person’s right to receive medications for diabetes. New drugs, known as cyclamates,  had been tested for several years and Abbott Drug Co. in particular was eager to put its new  cyclamate product in the market. Prior to 1950, FDA officials simply reviewed test data for any  drug that companies presented to determine whether or not the drug was safe. Upon approval,  they allowed the drug to circulate in the market. Unfortunately, cyclamates had not been tested

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
