English | ASIN: B09GD3HQFK | 2021 | 8 hours and 13 minutes |
An FDA economist discovers that solutions for food safety and nutrition lie in the hands of entrepreneurs – not government regulation and education. With about half of the US population expected to be obese by 2030 and one out of six Americans getting sick every year, why is the Food and Drug Administration spending years trying to figure out if almond milk should be called “milk”? As a 27-year veteran of the FDA’s Center for Food Safety and Nutrition, Dr. Richard A. Williams poses this question.
Dr. Williams also questions the accuracy of more than thirty years of food labeling, coupled with consumer education on diet/disease relationships and failed attempts to get consumers to track intakes. It is time for the American people to look elsewhere for solutions, rather than relying on the FDA. Fixing Food takes you inside the FDA and explores the inner workings that drove failed strategies. Following his tenure at the FDA, Dr. Williams spent more than a decade investigating new sciences – including genetic and microbial sciences – that are leading to innovative foods and products. With one of the greatest public health crises in American history ongoing, this research aims to solve our issues with food – once and for all.
