Dear Commissioner Hamburg,
What a shock this is to those of us who understand the devious, national health threatening acts these revolving door appointments create.
I'm sorry to say, but I imagine your good family name will be caught up in a big national scandal down the road about this.
This is a Health Ponzi scheme of huge proportions.
The edible oil industry revolving door guys are about to get their comeuppance, as more of us understand just what we sacrificed when they manufactured data, manipulated regulations and placed Crisco, Corn & Soil Oils, Margarines in our pantries, in the place of the food that humanity has been eating for centuries...butter, cream, lard etc.
Actually, these folks should be tried for treason....their actions are not in the interest of our national health...which IS our national security.
We are only as strong as our weakest link. Inhalers, allergy shots, cardiovascular disease...these are signs of maladies, created by machinations of self-interested industrial ag.
Have you heard Sally Fallon Morell's "The Oiling of America" presentation?
I hope you take some time to call her, or find out more about this, for your own personal use, and to help inform your future decisions.
If the industrial ag model that Taylor represents was such a boon for mankind, we wouldn't be seeing these food safety problems, would we now?
The pendulum is swinging the other way. Local, sustainable, safe and fresh is the direction we are going. I do not understand why you would appoint someone who will lead us in the opposite direction and mire us in the same-old-same-old thinking.
Like the banking bailout, It will take us generations to recover from the maladies of industrial ag.
We will also recover from your short-sighted appointment of Michael Taylor in the drivers seat.
Please reverse your decision. Turn this Titanic Around.
