The answer is gravity!

Today the FDA declared that gravity is a medical device and urged Americans to stop using gravity to treat bone health disorders. Gravity has traditionally been used to promote bone mineral density, for without gravity, bones become weak and fragile (as astronauts quickly discovered). But apparently there hasn't been any hard science conducted on this relationship, so the FDA now considers it "unproven quackery."
"There is no convincing evidence to show that gravity offers any health benefits whatsoever to people," FDA commissioner Dr. Wack Jobs said. "Accordingly, people should stop using gravity to alter their bone health and should, instead, rely on pharmaceuticals that have been rigorously tested and scientifically proven."

Also as part of the FDA's crackdown on gravity, all "bouncing" items such as trampolines, rebounders and exercise balls will be reclassified as medical devices and required to go through $800 million in clinical testing to prove they are safe before being sold to consumers. Even then, they will only be available with a doctor's prescription. To support the crackdown, the FDA warns that hundreds of children have already been harmed by trampolines, and that confiscating them is the only way to protect Americans from "these extremely harmful medical devices."

Armed raids will begin next week on sports stores, wholesale clubs, and retailers selling trampolines. The trampolines confiscated in such raids will reportedly be installed in the offices of FDA bureaucrats, allowing them to more easily bounce around ideas for oppressing the health freedom of everyday people.
