FDA Commissioner Launches A Blog

FDA Commissioner Andy von Eschenbach has joined the blogosphere with a new weekly column, "Andy’s Take," for the American public. 

In his inaugural post, he explains, "As Commissioner, I want to give you my take on some of the events about food and medical products that you have been hearing about in the news.

"I want to give you the inside story on some of the things that will soon be announced at the FDA so that you have my insights about why these initiatives are of such great importance to protecting and promoting your health," he continues.

So far, he has written about heparin, integrated medical products, and liquid dietary supplement products that contain hazardous levels of selenium.

The blog also offers audio versions of the posts, and you can sign up to receive new articles via email.
