Farm Wars

 

After reading this document from the FDA’s own site, it becomes apparent that the FDA cannot and will not be able to protect the nation’s food supply, nor be able to adequately regulate any new science:

3.3.2 Finding: The FDA lacks the information science capability and information infrastructure to fulfill its regulatory mandate.

3.3.3 Finding: The FDA cannot provide the information infrastructure support to regulate products based on new science.

Read on and download the report at the bottom of the page:

“In December 2006, FDA Commissioner Andrew von Eschenbach, MD requested that the Science Board, which is the Advisory Board to the Commissioner, form a Subcommittee to assess whether science2 and technology at the FDA can support current and future regulatory needs. Specifically, the Subcommittee’s charge was to identify the broad categories of scientific and technologic capacities that FDA needs to fully support its core regulatory functions and decision making throughout the product life cycle, today and during the next decade. The Science and Technology Subcommittee of the FDA Science Board (hereafter called the Subcommittee) was composed of three members of the Science Board and other experts representing industry, academia and other government agencies, and included individuals with extensive knowledge of cutting-edge research. Most importantly, these experts possess a deep understanding of regulatory science and the core mission of the Agency3. This report is the product of that assessment.”

The Subcommittee concluded that science at the FDA is in a precarious position: the Agency suffers from serious scientific deficiencies and is not positioned to meet current or emerging regulatory responsibilities.”

    Regarding the radiation from the Fukashima meltdown. The FDA, and the EPA are running the exact same protocols they used during the BP WMD “oil spill”. Cease any monitoring if seafood except in greatly diluted instances, give an “all is well” call and then ignore any data showing their findings wrong. Then when people get sick, they will investigate! But find no connection.

  2. walt says:

    From a news story; “As far back as early 2012, nuclear radiation from the Fukushima power plant was being detected in bluefin tuna off California’s coast. Months earlier, cesium-137 was being found in almost all Japanese seafood being sold in Canada, with 100 percent of seaweed, carp, monkfish and shark showing detectable levels. Even with Japanese scientists finding high cesium levels in plankton all across the Pacific, the FDA has continued to claim that there is no need to test any seafood.”
    It is because they WON’T do their jobs if there is an interest that pays them and wants them to be quiet!

  3. The fact that it is dated 2007 and that nothing new is forthcoming is testimony in itself, Beeman. Nothing has changed. In fact, it has only gotten worse.

  4. Beeman says:

    Good enough report but it is dated 2007 … some five years out of date.
    Anything more recent ?

  5. common law private attorney general Chris says:

    The Food and Death association DOES NO THING to protect America it merely propagates the Death agenda of the Trans-HUmanist
    Techn-O-Crazies? Pray

    I have to disagree with bert on this. I see, in addition to lack of honest intention, a clear lack of up to date scientific knowledge as well. If they accepted what was really going on with the population and the effects of GMO foods and the side effects of all the drugs they would be able to see that the FDA, as it exists, is a defunct organization. It is about time that they were dismantled and a new organization with a clear scientific purpose be established. We need something like the “Pure Food and Drug Act” again.

  7. Alex says:

    @bert – well said. The FDA is just a wing of the big corporations and only serves to poison people for the profit of their masters.

    Anytime I see the warning on any health food: “This statement has not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.”…this basically tells me that it must be something good. Because, it means it is something that is a threat to corporate power, so they refuse to evaluate it.

    Anything natural that can’t be patented and controlled, they refuse to evaluate. So, I see this ‘warning’ as an endorsement.

  8. bert says:

    … smells like a gambit for more money and more power to me.

    The U.S. FDA (U.S. Food and Depopulation Administration) has all the technological powers, skills and resources that it could ever neet.

    The only thing it lacks is any illusion of honest intention, other than to sell out to Monsanto and Big Pharma.

    At this level of corruption, one wonders if “our” Food and Depopulation Administration has any legitimate mandate at all.

    People know that industrial food is fake food. Monsanto and Pentagon-Poop agri-business know that they have no actual credibiility any more. More government enforcement and terrorism by them won’t increase their viability. The same goes for Big Pharma and its insurance companies. People have figured out that the FDA’s efforts to enforce Big Pharma’s technology for allopathic medicine is nothing but mafia enforcement of a Disease-For-Profit model.

    The more state-sponsored terrorism and force that they use, to try and enforce the frauds of Monsanto agriculture and the “side effects” of Big Pharma medicine, the more credibility they continue to loose.

    They are now generally known as the Food and Depopulation Administration, and I don’t think they will be get their name back. The problem is not the technology. The problem is their lack of honest intention.
