FDA Hid Names of Melamine Contaminated Infant Formula Products from the Public

When the FDA discovered melamine in U.S. infant formula products, it made a conscious decision to withhold that information from the public. Instead, it called a teleconference with the infant formula manufacturers to warn them about its findings!

The truth about the melamine only became public after the Associated Press filed a Freedom of Information Act request, demanding the test results from the FDA. Absent that request, this whole issue would have continued to remain an FDA secret.

In the aftermath of that decision, the FDA is now under intense fire for once again betraying the public trust and acting to protect the interests of corporations rather than the people. Congress, public health groups and consumer advocate (like me) are blasting the FDA for utterly disregarding public safety and catering (once again) to the financial interests of the companies it regulates.

The FDA, of course, claims that low levels of melamine are perfectly safe for babies to consume in unlimited quantity. Sure they are! And Bisphenol-A is safe, too. So is aspartame, sodium nitrite, sucralose, MSG and every other food ingredient poison you can think of. According to the FDA, they're all safe for babies to eat or drink in virtually unlimited quantities.

Needless to say, the FDA has become the laughing stock of all intelligent observers. It's not hard to figure out that the FDA has sold out to Big Business and betrayed the people, thrusting defenseless babies directly into the line of fire of dangerous chemicals and toxic additives.

Yet the FDA still conspires to hide the truth about these dangers from the public.

Truth be told, it is the FDA that has become the real danger to the public. This agency is a complete failure. Its leaders should resign in disgrace... or, more accurately, they should be arrested and prosecuted for their roles in a deadly conspiracy involving food and drug companies that sought to boost business profits at the expense of human lives.

This is all about much more than mere melamine, of course. If the FDA would consciously hide the truth about melamine from the public it was supposed to serve, then what else might it hide in the future? (What has it been hiding already?)

The bottom line is that the FDA cannot be trusted, and rather than ruling by trusted authority, it rules by intimidation and oppression, even with its own scientists (http://www.naturalnews.com/News_000...).

Think about it: If the FDA doesn't care enough about the safety of your babies to disclose the truth about melamine, what makes you think the FDA will give a damn about anything else that might threaten the health and safety of Americans?

The FDA exists for only one purpose: To protect the profits of powerful food and drug companies. Babies be damned.
