My Contemporary Government professor sent me a link to the Op-Ed article “A Stale Food Fight” by two of my favorite authors, Michael Pollan and Eric Schlosser. He knows I’m interested in this stuff because I wrote a ten page paper about the FDA’s current ineptitude to protect American citizens from the foods that they are consuming.
Remember the peanut butter and egg scares? The gist of the article is that the senate will soon be voting on a bill to modernize the FDA’s system and improve the ability to regulate the safety of our food supply.
Question: Do you support strengthening the FDA’s authority to regulate food?
