5. This is a weakness of how the FDA works

The FDA only assesses claims that producers pay them to assess. A drug both cures impotence and prevents heart disease? If the manufacturer only wants to pay for the impotence cure to be assessed, that's all the label can say. And physicians who say that it prevents heart disease, even if peer-reviewed studies say so, can be sued.
