In an ideal world, this would all be fixed by a group devoted only to food. Let's see how well that survives the activist onslaught. They have their first Deputy Commissioner for Human Foods, Jim Jones, who was at EPA before they got hijacked by activist epidemiologists who think homeopathic levels of weedkillers are dangerous. Today, companies that make pesticides have to lobby for a Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act Scientific Advisory Panel (SAP) - because EPA will overrule its own scientists and declare they are making new regulations based on claims by allied epidemiologists. No science needed, just find a correlation in spreadsheets. The Biden administration has even gone to court to ask to have EPA rulings made by both the Obama and Trump EPAs overturned so they can claim the Endangered Species Act forces them to create new regulations that are 500 percent lower than those recommended by EPA scientists - which are an order of magnitude below No Effect Levels.
An agency under the auspices of FDA, which shouldn't be a greater defender of the American food supply than the US Department of Agriculture or the Federal Trade Commission but certainly is, will hopefully bring sanity back to the process.
We'll have to see. This is still government. If it were only a leaky bucket, we could be content, but in the last few years it's been gaping holes in a bureaucratic water tower and the American public are the ones getting drenched. And it may be that we have just centralized everything in one group so environmental lawyers can collude with politically allied appointees and set off a new wave of pre-arranged sue-and-settle agreements.
