Because you're supposed to accept arguments based on the Naturalistic Fallacy at face value when discussing food, and pretend the FDA is explicitly out to get you every time it approves something you personally aren't familiar with.



Right, because FDA approval means that it's impossible for something to cause issues 30 years down the line... because, you know, we do long-term effects studies like that.


Hm. I'd just rather eat food with known ingredients than food and supplements with unknown ingredients, especially given that the supplement industry is fighting tooth and nail to prevent itself from being subject to the same level of scrutiny McDonald's is.
