Two contrasting stories about who’s watching what we eat:

On the 10th, The NY Times published an article about how companies are working on creating nanotech food additives, the first of which we’re already eating, even though the FDA is still only "trying to get a handle on what’s out there.”

Suffice to say that the article paints a threatening picture – but what was really interesting was the FDA’s attitude:
