These are the same people who gave us the food pyramid. What a boon to American health that's been.You say they're lax and you don't know why. It's not too hard to deduce. It's the money that the multinationals give to the government to enable them to operate freely without outside scrutiny.
I saw an interview with an FDA official and she flat out stated, and I quote, that "the FDA feels that Monsanto can police themselves". Seriously? I HIT THE ROOF when I heard that. That says it all right there. The Food and Drug Administration feels that something as important as the food supply needs no policing? Really? The FDA condones sneaking GMO's into our food supply with no input from the consumers. If that is not a criminal act, then I don't know what is. Federal Government, criminal act. Yea, I have a major problem with that and so should you.
Larry...just another bit of information about the FDA.You know when you read about taking say....a vitamin,and it says the FDA recomended dose is.........Well do you know where that info comes from?
The company that made the vitamin...not the FDA,which is just a regulatory beauracratic agency,and not an agency that actually tests drugs.Private labs and the CDC actually do the testing.
Drug companies frurnish the necessary info to the FDA,and if it meets their criteria,then they give the necessary "FDA approved" stamp.So now, the drug company can sell the drug for an unregulated exorbitant amount of money to recoup their R&D investment as soon as possible.
