Many people think that the FDA was setup to protect Americans and make recommendations for their health and welfare.
While that may have been it's intent, like so many other establishments, it's been over run by industry interests and lobbyists who have big pharma and big agras interests at heart, not the individual consumers.
As a result, we have a loop that entices GMO's to make you sick, and big pharma to keep you sick.
Drug companies are not in the business of getting you healthy, they want you to be sick and taking their pills for the rest of your life. If you don't have a condition, they'll make one up for you.
