Okay, everyone makes this plea time and time again, but I could use some advice on this one.
Here’s the thing. I’m writing for one of the Law Journals here at the University of MN. It’s called the Minnesota Journal of Law, Science and Technology. Anyway, I have about a week to come up with a topic.
I’m thinking along the lines of supplements and whether regulations on these (and other diets/drugs) are determined by science or by politics and the implications of that.
Okay, I know that’s too broad and will need some work, but here’s what I could use everyone else’s help in.
I’m looking for additional focus on my one idea, or for recommendations for other ideas. The key is that it must deal with policy, science, and law/regulation. It also has to be serious enough to make it on to an official law journal. This isn’t some Op-Ed piece for the school paper. I want this thing to be published.
So if you know of anything such as law and obesity, food/nutrition issues, or other issues that have some type of scientific connection, let me hear it.
If TC or Shugart have got some ideas or comments on the approval process for supplements/products that I might want to comment on, that would be cool too.
Who knows, maybe if we can come up with something someone out there somewhere will take a different look at this issue when setting policy.
