The FDA Needs to Join the Twenty-First Century
With America's health in jeopardy from pandemics and chronic diseases, outdated approaches aren't good enough.

November 23, 2021  •  The National Interest

Since its inception in 1906, the FDA has become increasingly restrictive, but more regulation doesn't necessarily mean greater benefits to consumers. Overly risk-averse, costly regulation can delay the appearance of new, life-saving products.

My prescription for a COVID-free 2022
Keep doing what's necessary to prevent becoming infected

November 23, 2021  •  Washington Examiner

There are several kinds of widely circulating myths or fallacies that intentionally underestimate the threat of the COVID-19 pandemic and the importance of prevention.

The first is what I call the N=1 narrative — that is, an attempt to generalize about the experience of a single person.

And, of course, no climate change conclave would be complete without pontification from former U.S. Vice President Al Gore, and a stern scolding from dysphoric, cheerless teenage activist Greta Thunberg.

How did Sri Lanka's organic-only debacle begin? Simple — 'uninformed, flawed decisions based on wishful thinking'
Sri Lanka's experience should be a cautionary tale for others who are tempted to reject scientific advances

November 11, 2021  •  Genetic Literacy Project

All of us have had the experience of learning things, as the saying goes, "the hard way." That phenomenon has been captured perfectly by a meme found lately on everything from to T-shirts to sign-boards:
