Beck: We Don't Need An FDA, We Just Need To Do Our Homework And Find Honorable Companies
On his radio program today, Glenn Beck and his co-hosts had a discussion about genetically modified foods that turned into a rant by Beck against the Food and Drug Administration during which he asserted that the government should play no role in food safety and simply let the free market sort it all out.
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."
You'd think that would be a case for the government setting labeling requirements and basic standards, but you'd be wrong.
"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":
