What's the deal with GRAS? "GRAS" is an acronym for the phrase Generally Recognized As Safe. On this week's episode of What Doesn't Kill You, Katy Keiffer chats GRAS with Marion Nestle, Paulette Goddard Professor in the Department of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health at New York University. Find out how this has allowed food manufactures more freedom to add different types of additives without much oversight. This program was sponsored by Tabard Inn

"Cooking is really a great public health safety measure but when it comes to things like nanotechnology it does you no good whatsoever." [11:00]

"Its hard to know how much sweetener people are eating - it's in everything now!" [16:00]

"People have tried for decades to find something wrong with caffeine, turns out it's really hard." [23:00]

"Congress doesn't like regulation because it's perceived as anti-business. I think that's a very narrow way of looking at it - we need regulation and it's better for business in the long run." [30:00]

NRDC attorney Avinash Kar breaks down the news that drug companies have agreed to re-label antibiotics in compliance with recent FDA guidances on their usage in livestock agriculture. In a wide ranging discussion Kar covers the loopholes in the guidances, the pending legislation co-sponsored by NRDC to regulate and monitor antibiotic use in livestock in California, and how to manage intensive livestock agriculture without the use of these important drugs either for growth promotion or disease prevention. On a sad note, after this broadcast it was learned that, Dr. Scott Hurd, a previous guest on the show, and referenced several times during this program, passed away suddenly yesterday. Our condolences to his friends and family. This program has been sponsored by Tabard Inn. Today's music provided by Dead Stars.

"There's a lot of evidence that the use of antibiotics in animals is contributing to adverse health effects in humans." [16:45]
