    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which is quietly starting to test certain foods for residues of a weed killing chemical linked to cancer, has found the residues in a variety of oat products, including plain and flavored oat cereals for babies. ...

    Hmmm ... "quietly testing". I think the tipping-point may be just arriving as regards diet - fat, sugar, XS refined carbs in general and so on. I think some people Down Under have not held a damp finger up to the wind and have missed the warning signs:

    And maybe things are moving a little on the agribusiness/GMO/pesticides front, too. If the whole thing falls apart and awkward questions begin to be asked there are people at the FDA who can now say "But we have been looking into this."

    Yup. The FDA is now looking into defining "healthy choices," and examining foods with a view to nutrient content as well as casting a close look at the sugar content. Also, it is spending more focus on total fats, and taking it off saturated fats only. Well, at least they're looking, which is an improvement over not finding due to not looking.

      The FDA? Maybe you mean the USDA?

        Possibly I did, since this Canuck sometimes gets confused by all the acronyms floating around. However, the FDA is in charge of food labels and presumably, examines the issues behind them.

          OK, I see. Yes, the FDA covers marketing claims. I thought you were talking about Dietary Guidelines for Americans and Healthy Plate, etc., which are USDA.
