The Food and Drug Act

The following clause was added to the Food and Drug Act:

“the Secretary [of the Food and Drug Administration] shall not approve for use in food any chemical additive found to induce cancer in man, or, after tests, found to induce cancer in animals.”

After this clause was adopted, no new additives could be approved for use in food if they caused cancer in people or animals.

The public loved this and industry hated it.

What do you think of this clause? Do you support it or do you oppose it?
