I was listening to the Diane Rehm show today as they talked about bisphenol A, a toxic substance I've blogged about before, see here & here & here & here &, finally, here. They had a guy on from the FDA who kept saying that consumers needed clarity & that the government, via the FDA, was giving them that clarity. Of course, he felt that bisphenol A was perfectly OK, & that citizens should just believe the FDA. What he forgot was that Bu$hCo's FDA could give a rat's ass about the consumer, they are only concerned with the corporations that continue to lie & cheat us. Here is the newest example of the FDA's stellar work.
A new analysis concludes that the Food and Drug Administration approved experiments with artificial blood substitutes even after studies showed that the controversial products posed a clear risk of causing heart attacks and death.
Ah, heck, what's a few death & debilitations when the health of the corporations is at stake?
