The Myth of Drug Expiration Dates – ProPublica

Following the discussion we had with Dr. Art Zoloph this month on the subject of stockpiling medicines, is this superb story by ProPublica. It begs the question of why not spend the money to appropriately test drug potency over time, given the expense of buying them?

Hospitals and pharmacies are required to toss expired drugs, no matter how expensive or vital. Meanwhile the FDA has long known that many remain safe and potent for years longer.
