Foxes at the Government Guarding Your Henhouse?

Kudos to Jonathan Safran Foer for his opinion piece on the CNN website this week. He carefully describes the environment between the FDA, charged with regulating our food stuffs, and the food manufacturer's and special interest groups.

Basically, the Government agencies responsible for creating policy and guidelines about what we eat have a very cozy relationship with the very organizations working very hard to protect their own interests.

We need a truly independent organization without the pressures of special interests, profitability and status quo. The question is how do we get there?
