Washington – Protecting
Humans and Animal Health
Guaranteed to cure warts, lumbago and make dry brittle hair shine - all of these condition and more treated by this one little bottle of liniment that you can buy today and today only for 1 thin dollar! If you heard anyone pitching a product like this you would probably call them a snake oil salesman. But not that many years ago, there were unscrupulous hucksters with similar lines. And sad to say, there are still companies who prey on our fears and desires. Their spiel has now gone high tech.
How do we know what is safe and effective? We want the best for ourselves and our pets. Thankfully there are governmental organizations such as the Food and Drug Administration that are looking out for us. My guest today is Dr. Carmen Stamper. She is a veterinary medical officer for the Center for Veterinary Medicine; their mission is to protect human and animal health.
