‘The Federal District Court of Missouri deemed that bleached white flour was unfit for human consumption, in 1910.
Shockingly, the 1st chief of the Food and Drug Administration at the time, H. W. Wiley, said that the law was “halted through the political influence of the flour millers” and “no notice of violations has since been made by the FDA.”
Mr. Wiley’s book “The History of a Crime Against the Pure Food Law” goes over the case:
These days flour is made from wheat thats exposed to harmful pesticides, insecticides, and fungicides from the minute they are seeded and stored away. Since this time, around 60 various chemicals have been approved by the FDA to bleach white flour.’
