President Obama touts one of the proper functions of government as keeping our food supplies safe in his most recent weekly address. To fulfill this mission, he nominated Dr. Margaret Hamburg as the head of the Food & Drug Administration.

From the White House Blog:

"We are a nation built on the strength of individual initiative. But there are certain things that we can't do on our own. There are certain things that only a government can do. And one of those things is ensuring that the foods we eat, and the medicines we take, are safe and don't cause us harm."
