The FDA Resists The Truth

FDA And EPA Are Victims Of The Government Shutdown – Is This Supposed To Be A Bad Thing?

FDA’s Voluntary GMO Labeling Is Good For Monsanto, Bad For Consumers

While consumers battle on for laws mandating the labeling of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in food products, some lawmakers are taking the GMO labeling debate in a different direction. And it’s a direction that’s anything but consumer friendly. Last month, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Sen. Mark Udall (D-Colo.) asked the U.S. Food & Drug
