FOOD SAFETY

The FDA keeps pointing at "food safety" controlling pathogens. Since the 1950s, the rate of people getting cancer and diabetes has increased along with the rate of sugar and HFCS (high fructose corn syrup) in the case of diabetes and with the increase of chemicals and GMO's (genetically modified organisms) in the food supply.

The FDA has dropped the ball on this issue and is letting [through] more and more chemicals which large corporations lobby for. Millions of people die from cancers now much more than in the 1950s. The FDA listens to the corporations at the expense of people's lives.
