Thomas Jefferson Quote about the FDA

Thomas Jefferson comments on the FDA before it existed:

"If people let the government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls who live under tyranny" - Thomas Jefferson (1743 - 1826)

Interesting, eh?

Jefferson was a smart guy. He saw that when you give up personal responsibility and hand it over to a government, or to anyone other than yourself, you will soon lose the control of your own life that goes hand-in-hand with responsibility.
