How much do we trust the government to label foods today? Think about "pastured," "cage free," "whole grains," and "organic" labels. With such an inefficient, overstuffed bureaucratic fumbling with the current labeling of food, why would we want this same institution regulating GMO labels? Now, when a smaller independent company labels their food as containing no GMOs, we can trust that label. Get the government involved and this labeling system will lose meaning.Read more »
The FDA says its new guidelines would make the food Americans eat safer and help prevent the kinds of food borne disease outbreaks that sicken or kill thousands of consumers each year.

The Food and Drug Administration has been found to have launched a massive surveillance campaign targeting its own scientists for writing letters to journalists, members of Congress and President Obama.

Seen any walnuts in your medicine cabinet lately? According to the Food and Drug Administration, that is precisely where you should find them. Because Diamond Foods made truthful claims about the health benefits of consuming walnuts that the FDA didn’t approve, it sent the company a letter declaring, “Your walnut products are drugs” — and “new drugs” at that — and, therefore, “they may not legally be marketed … in the United States without an approved new drug application.” The agency even threatened Diamond with “seizure” if it failed to comply.Read more »
