I work in the medical device and material industry (dental) and I can tell you guys from experience that the FDA is the biggest enemy of progress that has ever existed. They regulate everything to death. Unless you can out spend them in legal fees its basically hopeless.
So happy that tobacco and alcohol are FDA approved as safe for consumption by the American populous.
Maybe they should spend more time preventing plague in our spinach and less time screwing with those of us in the bodybuilding community who willingly and knowingly take on certain risks to get to the next level in our training. Next thing you know they'll start banning weight plates and bars because some like to drop them on their heads.
Not that I feel too strongly about it or anything.
