Resolving the Worsening Crisis at the FDA The FDA has been taken over by the very industries that it was meant to regulate.

This is outrageous; this is tragic; at times, this is even criminal. The unholy alliance between corporation and state has bled out even the pretense that the FDA is working for the benefit and safety of the American people. The FDA is a failed bureaucracy under corporate control. This sad litany affects every single American, and is compellingly detailed in this article by Stephen Fox. His analyses are at times horrifying, yet are always medically and legally accurate; his recommendations concerning corrections, especially at the state (rather than Federal level) are insightful.

Never before in Human Evolution has food chemistry been so precarious and so critical to the health of billions. This results from multinational corporate biochemical mayhem going unchecked by regulatory bodies in every nation, the worst two being the United States Food and Drug Administration and China’s total lack of standards.

This crisis is worsening, demonstrated by the FDA failing to discern the imported melamine from China in the wheat and rice gluten additive to pet food that has already killed at least 4000 pets, and the failure to prevent imports of diethylene glycol, the fake glycerine from China added to medications as a sweetener, which has killed hundreds, especially children, from Panama to India to Bangladesh. These egregious vignettes, however, pale in epidemiological comparison with harm done by the manufacturing of neurotoxic and carcinogenic food additives in general, which is rapidly destroying health in hundreds of nations. My own theory is that melamine, not normally very toxic, became poisonous when mixed with cyanuric acid in the bottom of the vats in China, a theory also advanced by Richard Goldstein at the Cornell College of Veterinary Medicine.
