I have a simple question: if you rely upon the same "people" who got you into this mess to get you out of it, doesn’t that suggest that you’re a bit of a once-you-twice-me fool?
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has notified 17 food manufacturers that the labeling for 22 of their food products violates the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act…In an open letter to Industry dated March 3, 2010, Dr. Hamburg underscored the importance of providing nutrition information that consumers could rely on.
Any other options? Here’s a novel idea: the FDA was put up for sale, bought, paid for and sold out a long, long time ago. This is just shuffling bullshit. Think they’re going to take down Monsanto or Tyson? No, they’ll take down a small guy, someone with a few mil at best but mostly cash poor. They’ll eventually cave and the FDA will get their "see how we protected you dummies?" presrel. That, or they’ll fine the big guys a few mil, which will only come off the money they were going to "donate" anyway.
Another novel idea: find local farms or farmer’s markets in your area. Go there. Ask hard questions. Befriend and get to know those who understand that it’s quality FOOD first, and well-deserved profit for doing it right comes after.
And one more thing: "…that consumers could rely on." Wild eyed fantasy, folks. You can’t even rely on me to know what you ought to eat. You’re being scammed by this bullshit and you need to wake up.
And one more revelation: if you eat real food you don’t really need fucking labels. And health claims? They’re superfluous. Where you do see health claims? On packaged shit. Now go feed it to your kids, like you always do. It’ll shut ’em up.
