Welcome to Consumer Reports Advocacy

Consumer Reports is an independent nonprofit organization that works for a fair, safe and transparent marketplace.

Since we were founded as Consumers Union in 1936, we have advocated for the rights of all consumers. Now, we are united under the Consumer Reports name, bringing together our trusted testing, research, journalism, and advocacy.

We hope you will partner with us and our six million members for a better world.

Letter to Henry Waxman Re: the Enhancing Drug Safety and Innovation Act of 2007

Because most drugs are tested on so few people for such a short period of time before FDA approval, it is impossible to know all of their possible side effects, both good and bad, before they are marketed. Therefore we deeply appreciate your bill’s provisions.
