Despite the maturity of the science of car cinogenicity. Congress cannot now be persuaded to adopt any change to that Clause. The Delaney Clause has long-outlived any scientific under-pinnings, but still it remains as a m o n u m e n t to tradition but not to reason. FOOD Evaluating QUALITY · 39 Rish W h e t h e r basic or novel, laws are implemented a n d enforced by people exercising an e n o r m o u s a m o u n t of discretion. To implement all the laws which we have spread before us, we, by necessity, must rely on the m e n a n d w o m e n in the regulatory agencies w h o inter pret and apply the laws a n d regulations using their best judgment.
FOOD QUALITY · 49 Application of Table 1 to Food Biotechnology Microbiological contamination. In general foods derived from biotechnology will not carry greater risks of contamination with pathogenic microorganisms and their toxins than do their traditional counterparts. In this regard it should be kept in mind that microbial growth in food is controlled by a multitude of factors including the concentration of required nutrients, p H , type a n d concentration of acid, water activity, the concentration of sodium chloride a n d other electrolytes, and the levels of microbial growth inhibitors (Riemann and Bryan, 1979).
A total of 103 bills led u p to the Pure Food a n d Drugs Act of 1906. While this was taking place, Wiley obtained Congressional funds to demonstrate the effects of food preservatives on h u m a n volunteers. His "poison squad" was fed massive doses of borax, for maldehyde, salicylic acid, copper sulfate, and sulfurous acid. Presi dent Theodore Roosevelt, in his annual statement to Congress, strongly r e c o m m e n d e d enactment of a law to regulate foods, drinks, and drugs. By 1906, public opinion h a d b e c o m e so vocal that after nearly thirty years of effort, the P u r e Food a n d Drugs Act of 1906 and the Meat Inspection Act of 1906 were passed.
