Who controls the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and what
are the real goals of this powerful agency? These are the central
questions explored in Health at Gunpoint, a book that brings into
clear focus the silent war being waged by the FDA against
American consumers.
The FDA was established in 1906 to protect the U.S. public from
misbranded and adulterated foods and drugs. While the original
intent may have been honorable, over the years, the mission has
become tainted by lobbyists and money. In Health at Gunpoint,
award-winning health writer James Gormley presents a history of
this Federal agency's long-standing battle against health products
and examines some of its most controversial decisions and the
troubling reasons behind them.
Now, the FDA is once again poised to make decisions that would
have a major impact on the public's health--this time, by imposing
restrictions that would eventually eliminate many of the nutritional
supplements Americans take every day. Health at Gunpoint not
only sheds light on what is happening, but also prepares you for
the coming battle.
