Data & Food


maggotsThis article from The New York Times about bad stuff in food raises the simple issue about having data about a subject. Data is one of the one ways that we govern ourselves.  We need data so that food manufacturers understand how they must perform.  Our government, in this case the FDA, can’t just tell your food manufacturers, “make food with no bad stuff in it.” You have to provide data-driven guidelines. Once we can agree upon that, then the following article is not as bad as it appears…although any amount of maggots in my food is pretty disgusting.
