After 40 YEARS, how about the FDA just give us

the data they have so far, and we'll make our own conclusions. Some of us think 40 YEARS is long enough to wait for an answer. Oh, wait a minute. I get it.

"The FDA has been working on a review of whether triclosan is safe for nearly 40 years. Its website said the review would be released in 2012, but there is still no sign of it. When asked about a release date, an FDA spokesperson declined to comment because of ongoing litigation. Until this review is finalized, companies are permitted to use the chemical in their products."

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
