The Poison Suad

characters The Poison Suad 107 A New York Times Notable Book From Pulitzer Prize winner and New York Times bestselling author Deborah Blum the dramatic true story of how food was made safe in the United States and the heroes led by the inimitable Dr Harvey Washington Wiley who fought for changeBy the end of nineteenth century food was dangerous Lethal even Milk might contain formaldehyde most often used to embalm corpses Decaying meat was preserved with both salicylic acid a pharmaceutical chemical and borax a compound first identified as a cleaning product This was not by accident; food manufacturers had rushed to embrace the rise of industrial chemistry and were knowingly selling harmful products Unchecked by government regulation basic safety or even labelling reuirements they put profit befo. During his successful 2016 campaign for the White House Trump promised to have his cabinet submit a list of every wasteful and unnecessary regulation which kills jobs and which does not improve public safety and eliminate them His FDA commission Scott Gottlieb followed that promise by saying what while he recognizes the importance of food safety legislation he wants to strike the right balance in its implementation Consumer groups now anticipate delayed and reduced protections from agencies facing deep budget cuts The Earthjustice Institute has warned of the Trump administration s willingness to accommodate even unfounded and partial industry opposition to the detriment of the health and welfare of people and families across the country Such a warning with its mix of theatrical anger and genuine dismay could have been written almost word for word by Harvey Washington Wiley than a century ago The sense of deja vu echoing down the years should remind us of the ways that food safety practices have dramatically changed in this country and of the ways they have changed hardly at all The Poison Suad pg 289I found this book while browsing in my local library and picked it up because public health is always an interesting topic to me It took me a little while to get started on this book but once I did I could hardly put it down The Poison Suad follows Dr Harvey Washington Wiley in his career primarily as chief chemist for the Department of Agriculture explains how his research on altered and deliberately unlabeledmislabeled products came to shape his advocacy for safe and pure or at the very least properly labeled food and drink and illustrates for readers the parallels between the complaints and schemes of business of decades ago and the complaints and schemes of business today Just like the Earthjustice statement could have been written by Dr Wiley The Poison Suad is littered with uotations from 19th and 20th century businessmen their lawyers and the their lobbyists that could be written word for word by the industry at any cost interests of today I knew about a couple of the cases cited in the text the poisoning of children with milk that had been preserved with formaldehyde the mass poisoning of mainly children by Elixir Sulfanilamide but not the vast majority Well written informative and very very relevant The Poison Suad was an amazing book and it is one that I would highly recommend However given that a good many of the descriptions are graphic I have one caveat I would try not to recommend The Poison Suad to someone who didn t have at least an ok tolerance for nauseating descriptions the likes of which are extremely likely to cause intense revulsion at the very idea of some things once being considered food For example Doctors continued to worry over continued reports of grocer s itch a side effect of the deceptive practice of grinding up insects and passing the result off as brown sugar Sometimes live lice survived the process The Poison Suad pg 66 The secretary of agriculture Wilson also had endorsed a November decision to seize fifty two industrial sized cans of eggs preserved in a 2 percent solution of boracic acid The Hipolite Egg Company of St Louis sold these huge cans forty two pounds each to the baking industry at a price much lower than fresh eggs Hipolite specialized in salvaging dirty cracked and even rotting eggs for use in breads and cakes The company was particularly known for using spots decomposing eggs mixing their contents into a thick homogeneous mass using boracic acid a by product of borax the cleaning product also used for pest control to halt further decomposition and then selling the eggy soup by the can The Poison Suad pg 203 New options for coloring agents arose with synthetic dyes made from coal tars dense chemically complex residues left over the processing of coalThe new dyes were durable cheap and potent and rapidly adopted by industrial processors of everything from fabric to food The Poison Suad pg 229 The organizers of the pure food exhibit decided to exhibit two thousand different brands presenting tainted food and drink sold in the United States Minnesota and South Dakota sent sheets of silk and wool each five feet suare brilliantly colored with coal tar dyes extracted from a variety of strawberry syrups ketchup jams and jellies and red wine Michigan sent samples of lemon extract in which the manufacturer had used cheap but deadly wood alcohol as a base Illinois provided faked extracts such as vanilla made only of alcohol and brown food coloringParticipating states provided forty brands of ketchup labeled as a tomato product that were mostly stewed pumpkin rind dyed red and some fifty brands of baking powder that were largely well ground chalk enhanced by aluminum compounds To the fury of food industry executives the fair s head of publicity Mark Bennett send out a news release titled Lessons in Food Poisoning which noted If you want to have your faith in mankind rather rudely shaken take the time to look about in the exhibit of the State Food Commissioners in the south end of the Palace of Agriculture The Poison Suad pg 115This is a small sampling of just what I could easily find and could be easily understood from a relatively short uote I personally think the text is all the better for including these details they do not allow industry malpractice and unethical behavior to hide behind the veneer of polite wording I think it is necessary the same way that Upton Sinclair s graphic descriptions of the Chicago stockyards and packing plants were necessary The Jungle as well as other information about it and the yards themselves are also uoted by the way But because I know not everyone has the
