“I have always strenuously supported the right of every man to his own opinion, however different that opinion might be to mine. He who denies another this right makes a slave of himself to his present opinion, because he precludes himself the right of changing it.”     Thomas Paine,    The Age of Reason

Quote Of The Day

by Brad Warbiany

From James Hamblin, The Atlantic:

It’s a kind of nonchalant way to say that the organization in charge of making sure everything we eat and drink is safe for us is, decades into the mass marketing and sale of heavily caffeinated products without regulation to all U.S. markets, going to look into their safety.

They want to regulate caffeine?

Well, there goes GDP…

  1. Prescription drug reviews and approvals require work that is unpublicized and unappreciated (except for drug company shareholders). Mucking around with the most popular and most heavily used drug in the country will bring the FDA a tidal wave of publicity. Some of the publicity will be negative, but (as the actors and rock stars say), any publicity is better than none. Every time public interest flags, an FDA employee could “leak” a research study finding or a review committee decision. The FDA can milk the caffeine issue for years.
