Summary
"Formaldehyde, borax, salicylic acid. Today, these chemicals are used in embalming fluids, cleaning supplies, and acne medications. But in 1900, they were routinely added to food that Americans ate from cans and jars. Often products weren't safe because unregulated, unethical companies added these and other chemicals to trick consumers into buying spoiled food or harmful medicines. Chemist Harvey Washington Wiley recognized these dangers and began a relentless thirty-year campaign to ensure that consumers could purchase safe food and drugs, eventually leading to the creation of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, or FDA. Acclaimed nonfiction and Sibert Honor winning author Gail Jarrow uncovers this intriguing history in her trademark style that makes the past enthrallingly relevant for today's young readers"--Amazon.

Summary
Established in 1906, the U.S. Food and Drug Administratio? (FDA) is charged with protecting public health. Under this mandate, the federal agency regulates drugs and medical devices to ensure their safety and effectiveness. But is the FDA failing this mandate? Some argue that the FDA's long and costly approval process stifles innovation and keeps life-changing treatments from the market, but defenders contend that the process is essential to ensure safety and protect public health. Is the FDA too cautious in approving new drugs and medical devices? Is it ever appropriate to sacrifice safety for speed?

Summary
"Tony Chu is a detective with a secret. A weird secret. Tony Chu is Cibopathic, which means he gets psychic impressions from whatever he eats. It also means he's a hell of a detective, as long as he doesn't mind nibbling on the corpse of a murder victim to figure out whodunit, and why. He's been brought on by the Special Crimes Division of the FDA, the most powerful law enforcement agency on the planet, to investigate their strangest, sickest, and most bizarre cases"--P. [4] of cover.
