FDA: You are free to do as we tell you

Now that Codex is in effect, this will only get worse. Don't melt their switchboards; you can't vote them out of office. They're not elected. They don't serve you. -

    The FDA has finally made its food-rights policy crystal clear. Here’s the agency’s position, made evident in their response to a lawsuit filed by the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund:

    • They believe you have no absolute right to any raw unprocessed food, unless the FDA says it’s okay
    • They believe you have no right to good health, except as approved by the FDA
    • They believe that there is no right for citizens to contract privately for their food

    The Complete Patient reports:

    “More Americans appear to be getting the message ... Over the past six months, we’ve had the popular push in Wisconsin, a state where the regulators have gone bonkers to eliminate raw milk, to pressure legislators to approve making it available from the farm ... [and] a firestorm building in Massachusetts over a ... decision by a regulator to restrict consumer access to milk.”
