now compare the above explanation from the FDA to your explanation of reasons for FDA regulations: So what exactly is your objection here with the FDA regulations? That they test so placebos aren't sold? That the FDA tests to see if something actually works? that it makes sure products are safe before entering the market? That they don't have unintended medical consequences? i have no problem with your line of argumentation against the FDA. But, given the lack of proof of actual FDA regulations being enacted for said reasons (underlined above) which you said constrain genetic products reaching the market (i.e. religious concerns), your pretty much basing your arguments on nothing here. Keep in mind this proof is from the VERY LINK YOU PROVIDED.
