Aspirin
By Mike Rappaport

According to Marginal Revolution,

"If aspirin were invented today it might not be approved by the FDA. Keep this in mind when thinking about Vioxx, Bextra and other pain-relief drugs that have recently been taken off the market. This is not to say that the new pharmaceuticals are "safe," but rather that all pharmaceuticals involve tradeoffs."
