so why then doesn't this work for 'resistance' training? After all, you are exercising muscles.

Take for example, I myself need corneal cross-linking to halt the progression keratoconus, which has been done safely in other countries for about 17 years now. A company called Avedro is lobbying really hard to get it approved so that they can start selling the equipment and drugs required to perform the procedure, but the FDA has continually denied it every year, instead opting to just wait until you go all out blind and then get a corneal transplant as their current preferred treatment option.

That would be because some other company already has the market cornered for corneal replacement and doesn't want an alternative that avoids this to take hold...

I truly suspect that what they really want is backdoors put in...
