Terra Sigillata

There was really nothing more I could add last week regarding all of the turmoil at/about the US Food and Drug Administration in the aftermath of the much-debated survey results, as covered by my SiBlings and elsewhere last week. A good many of us have colleagues and former classmates who work at FDA and are busting their humps to serve the public good despite the lack of scientific support and the abundance of political pressure.

As evidence in defense of the folks at the front line at FDA, here is a very nice public-service education and drug safety program developed by FDA for kids entitled, “Medicines in My Home.” Please be sure to pass the link along to any grade school teachers you may know.
