    I had no idea EPA and FDA shared the responsibility of regulating the pesticides as they relate to animal products.
    It’s great to see agencies work together; however, I am sure it creates some problems as well. Streamlining such tasks might be a good thing, when applicable.
    Respectfully,

    Are there any PowerPoint presentations about FDA, its work and FDA basics? Where to find them?
    It would be great if you have them on slideshare.net or anywhere else available for everyone.

    I second Ana, and thanks for the info about reporting by consumers in MedWatch program. As a paralegal I can now tell clients to fill the form by themselves.

    In my opinion, FDA is a very important organisation. Crucial for its acceptance is an honest information policy so that people know and understand what FDA stands for. Many young people have to be taken care of and FDA should to try to reach those people who really need advice.

    G’Day! Fdatransparencyblog,
    Thanks for that, The Twilight Saga has turned out to be one of the most common sequence in the very last ten years. To show that this is this case the USA noted that all four of the Twilight Saga books have been the most marketed guides of 2009. There are lovers of the Twilight sequence fondly identified as “Twi-hards” and then there are these individuals that no nothing at all about the collection!
