  1. Your article on ecoli was fascinating and detailed. It was a good reminder of where this all started and maybe even some of its benefits including cheese, insulin, and yeasts.

    However, it seems as if the regulatory framework has disintegrated to a point that leaves the American public as the lab animals for the science that is 100x faster than the law and lawmakers ever could be.

    Who is developing the policies that keeps the public safe while allowing innovation to play its role in the food industry? Are you aware of reasonable plans that can be shared and do you have any suggestions of your own?

    Thank you for the time, effort, and thoughtfulness that you put into your articles and website.
