I'm right there with ya, Lynda. I believe in what they're now calling "big" government, because I believe everybody deserves a safety net, but part of the "big" should actually be "good" -- i.e. agencies that aren't in the pockets of even bigger businesses who make us sick and destroy our lands and animals, and then lie about it.

Sounds like the FDA is no different than the TCEQ (Texas Commission on Environmental Quality) or the RRC (Railroad Commission) on the drilling/fracking issues we have in my home town. We have dogs with rare forms of cancer caused by drilling. All were healthy until drilling occurred close to their property. Coincidence? I think not.... We have a cluster of kids in my town with leukemia. My friend was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, which generally effect elderly African-Amer men. She is a Caucasian and less than 40 yrs. old. One of her doctor's asked her if she ever lived by gas wells, guess what her answer was? Yup, you are correct. Sorry for the rant, I'm sick of these agencies/gov that don't protect us like they should.
