If the FDA wants to know the public sentiment, let the FDA ask us. We will be more than happy to bombard them with our opinions. I also believe that the FDA is bought and sold. I have a relative who works for the FDA and I am not convinced that the FDA is working in our interest. If so, we would not have aspartame on the market, we would not be using high fructose corn syrup in our food, we would not be using supplements in our food that other countries ban. And don't forget about the tryptophan debacle in the 80s. One manufacturer had a bad product and ALL tryptophan was banned? Has the FDA banned all aspirin when one company product was tampered with? No, but people were using tryptophan for mild depression at the same time that a big drug company was pushing Prozac? See the connection?
