US Food Production Policy Obscured

Companies making society unaware of the unheatlhy products

Food Inc. Orginal Question

Is the government policy or justice system making it easier for high, complex companies to make society less aware of the unhealthy products; being produced to the average U.S. consumer?

Biotechnology Is Incripted Everywhere

"The products of biotechnology are regulated under the same U.S. laws that govern the health, safety, efficacy, and environmental impacts of similar products derived by more traditional methods."

Patrick Reid: AP Biology

Sepeartion of Powers

As you saw above there are three main groups that are in charge of different items in the foods regulation and laws. Within each of those main groups are subgroups. In order to make sure the production of our foods are well cared for they divided the job but it only makes everything else complicated. Researching this topic was overwhelming and outrageous, there were so many diverse ideas, processes and complications with our food regulations.
