The Chemical Feast: The Ralph Nader Study Group Report on Food Protection and the Food and Drug Administration
Ralph Nader: The quantity of food pouring from our farms and ranches must never be confused with its quality by the time it reaches the consumers' dinner table or whether it adequately reaches many poor consumers at all. For years the Food Group, as the food lobby is known in Washington has nearly determined the limits of public dialogue and public policy about food quality. It is time for consumers to have information that will provide them with an effective understanding of the secrecy-clouded situation. The report proposes to contribute toward that objective as well as to spur the additional disclosure of facts and materials.
