‘Any Time with Vin Forte’ Episode 55: “The FDA is Asleep at the Switch” [Guest: Larry Olmsted]

Larry Olmsted is the author of the book ‘Real Food/Fake Food: Why You Don’t Know What You’re Eating & What You Can Do About It.’ He is also a columnist for Forbes & USAToday. In this episode, we discuss how the FDA is hurting Americans by keeping in place low standards (such as only inspecting 2% of all seafood imports), what different companies are doing to get you to buy products that aren’t what they seem, how some of these foods are better outside of America due to other countries having better-regulating bodies, why Wal-Mart actually has better standards for food than most regular stores, and much more.
