The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is the federal agency that regulates and often interferes with foods, human and veterinary medications, biological products, and medical devices. For each of those goods, the FDA pretends to ensure that they are safe and effective, while instead often delaying approval in an expensive game of lobbying. Bureaucrats at the FDA aspire to land much better paying jobs in Big Pharma, which distorts their decision-making.

The FDA also regulates cosmetics based on safety, and regulates electronic products that emit radiation for safety.

FDA regulates information presented to the public based on accuracy and understandability.

In practice, the pharmaceutical industry influences the FDA and distorts its policies in several powerful ways. The pharmaceutical industry will offer higher paying jobs to preferred FDA employees and consultants. Conflicts of interest by persons in advisory positions to the FDA have been rampant.
