I just posted the following article at  You can read it in its entirety at  at  Enjoy!



“Since the FDA only has jurisdiction over compounds involved in ‘interstate commerce,’ they have no jurisdiction over our kitchens—yet.  Should my client lose this case, however, the FDA will have set a precedent to invade the privacy of our homes.”
