    Banning the crops is not banning the pesticide.

    Of course, the FDA is a fully captured regulatory agency at this point and won't be instituting any regulation to fix this in the foreseeable future.

    It's more like mandating that doctors don't prescribe one form of antibiotic for everything, which is something we should have done decades ago.

    These are things we've known are a problem for my entire live, and the entire life of my father. But we've done nothing and are now paying the price.

    If knowledge is power and power corrupts, does that mean that knowledge corrupts?
