    Think how much collateral damage we left behind in Iraq.

      Manslaughter charges.

      It was an accident that I bought off the EPA & USDA investigators that accidentally deleted the "anomalous" study results.

      As for the "collateral damage" in Iraq, that was a known consequence of bombing hospitals and water treatment facilities....

      I do understand your point but the "GRAS" (Generally Recognized As Safe) designation/labeling is not an accident either.  It's a way for corporations to skirt any legitimate testing of their products for actual safety before they go onto the market.

      Árpád Pusztai's studies almost 20 yrs ago proved Monsanto's GMO products were dangerous.  He was discredited, lost his job, tenure and was run out of town for telling the truth.

      That was no accident either.
