LETTER: Get tough on synthetic food

I READ how the federal government wants to ensure there are no gaps in drug enforcement or product-safety laws that could allow synthetic drugs to return to the market once they work on implementing a permanent prohibition (“Synthetic drugs ban prolonged” Herald 17/8 ).

If they were just as diligent with processed foods, maybe we would be able to curb the rise in obesity and other problems like ADHD, allergies and food intolerances.
