5 Reasons the FDA Can Bite Me

If Monsanto weren't the devil, the FDA surely would be. Maybe they can be co-Devils. Anyway, read my 5 reasons why the FDA can bite me, then move them up or down by clicking on the arrows. Best reason goes at the top.

Don't Frankenstein my Food, Yo!

The FDA has decided against mandatory labeling of genetically modified foods, protecting the profit margins of giant poisoners/corporate constituents like Monsanto. (Even China and India require GM labeling.) I mean, if I’m gonna grow a third arm, I’d like some say in making that decision.

The FDA hired a former Monsanto lobbyist as its food safety czar and 2nd highest ranking official. From lobbying for a corporation’s right to poison the public for profit, to protecting that same public? Isn’t that like hiring a fox to guard the chickens at night?

Even though antibiotics in our food supply are dangerous, the FDA, after decades of pretending to limit them, has now made the restriction of antibiotics in animal feed voluntary. Yes, voluntary! “Poison people if you want. Or don’t. We could really care less.” I believe that’s the message. Did you know that 80% of antibiotics sold in this country are given to farm animals? Animals you are eating.

The FDA can approve one cancer drug (with its own side effects) to treat the side effects of another cancer drug, while a safe, natural, healthy product like raw milk is illegal. Natural milk, from natural animals on a natural diet = bad. But … unsafe, unnatural, unhealthy drugs with unsafe, unnatural, unhealthy side effects = good? Must be government logic – aka follow the money.

Do You Dare to Disobey Me?

The brazenness with which the FDA operates as if it’s above the law. In 2009, a group of nine scientists came forward with allegations of agency managers intimidating scientists into changing or suppressing scientific data. Data that challenges the bottom line of big pharma. And how about a 2002 survey asking FDA scientists about their organization, in which 66% said they were not confident in the FDA’s ability to "adequately monitor the safety of prescription drugs once they are on the market." The FDA is a bully disliked by even its own family.
