41. The FDA doesn't regulate the food and drug supply based on political want

It regulates the food and drug supply based on health needs. So if you can articulate a reason that's within the scope of what the FDA regulates, then do so. As yet I haven't seen you or anyone else supply anything remotely approaching a reason based on a rational health risk. The FDA and the USDA should not be used to promote mandatory labeling for political or moneyed interests that have nothing to do with public health concerns, so the reasons you supplied are actually an excellent reason why such labeling should not be supported.

Your rational reasons against labeling?


As I told another poster, I feel no obligation to argue against something that was never justified to begin with. That's a fool's errand. For further reading see...
