Beck: we don't need an FDA

'Beck said that the government should not require genetically modified foods or organic foods or any other foods to be labeled as such because "this whole organic thing is bullcrap because you can slap 'organic' on anything, it doesn't mean anything." '

I love how he can spread that crap and however many millions of people will nod their heads. Organic has a strict definition, natural does not (there's a thread with a WSJ article on this).

'"No," Beck said. "That's why we need to be honorable people. That's why, if you really want that, you go and you find somebody that you trust. You got to people, and even if it's Whole Foods, and you have to trust that they're being honorable and they're looking for the right food and they'll tell you what it is. Let them, let the market sort it out. Let the market say 'this is our standard for organic, this is what we mean by organic.' You do your own homework" '

It doesn't seem that much of the mainstream media has bothered with this recent rambling, which is a good sign I suppose.

So what do you think - Is the FDA necessary? Effective? Do they have too much control? Not enough?
