Tell Roche Pharmaceuticals : Give us the Truth about Accutane!

This petition had 390 supporters

Over 14 million people worldwide have taken the Chemotherapy and acne drug - Accutane. Over 4 million people alone in the United States. In theory and some evidence- Accutane may shorten one's potential life-span, as it inhibits your body to produce an enzyme that protects your very DNA - the building block of life! This petition is for anyone that has been negatively affected by the drug, whether it is you, a family member, or just someone you know. Together we can force Roche to come clean on the horrible side effects the company knew all along - and marketed it anyway! With the truth out there, we may be one step closer to coming up with a cure to aid those affected.
