    Default WHY THE FDA’S POLICY ON GENETICALLY ENGINEERED FOODS IS FRAUDULENT AND ILLEGAL

    Although most Americans (including those who serve in government) are unaware of it, genetically engineered foods are on the market only because the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has covered up the warnings of its own scientists, misrepresented the facts, and violated explicit mandates of U.S. law. The following points provide the details.

    1. The Food Additive Amendment of the U.S. Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act institutes a precautionary approach and requires that new additives to food must be demonstrated safe before they are marketed. (21 U.S.C. Sec. 321)


    2. An official Senate report described the intent of the amendment as follows: “While Congress did not want to unnecessarily stifle technological advances, it nevertheless intended that additives created through new technologies be proven safe before they go to market.” (S.

    4 '. However, the FDA’s regulations state that substances added to food that were not in use prior to
    1958 cannot qualify as GRAS unless they meet two requirements. Not only must they be
    acknowledged as safe by an overwhelming consensus of experts, but this consensus must be based on scientific procedures”
    which ordinarily entail studies published in peer reviewed journals. (21 CFR Sec. 170.30 (ab))'

    This point really stood out for me, but the rest of the article is quite startling also.
