Seattle Times letters to the editor

Genetically modified wheat in Oregon

Don’t trust the FDA

Glen Squires claims that we have nothing to worry about, because the strain was “certified as safe by the Food and Drug Administration” (FDA). [“Guest column: Industry will survive wheat ‘crisis,’” Opinion, June 13]

The arthritis drug Vioxx was also approved by the FDA. Vioxx caused 27,000 heart attacks before it was finally pulled from the market. I don’t trust the FDA.
