. An additional addition to the food safety collection will be arriving in the latter part of this month.

“Fixing Food: An FDA Insider Unravels the Myths and the Solutions” is scheduled to be available for purchase at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books A Million, IndieBound and beginning Oct. 26, 2021.

The author is Richard Williams, Ph.D., who worked for the Food and Drug Administration from 1980 to 2007, finishing up as the Director for Social Science with the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN).

Previews reports that Williams argues that the FDA should cease its old practices and instead ” think outside the box” and embrace new approaches and technologies that could lead to a safer, healthier future for Americans.

His new book will promote technologies that have “tremendous potential to improve food safety .” Williams envisions “personalized nutrition”, using genetics and microbiomes in the fight against obesity.

His technology bent includes robotics, 3D printing and genetic engineering. Precision fermentation, artificial intelligence and big data are all in line with FDA’s ” New Era of Smarter Food Safety .”

The New Era was largely created by Frank Yiannas (FDA’s Deputy Commissioner of Food Policy and Response). The New Era is He described it as more important than ever in your history to collaborate to create a safer, digital, traceable and digital food system .”

The book is described as “part expose, and part memoir” by FDA. It takes the reader inside FDA to reveal its “failed strategies Since leaving FDA, Williams has been working on new sciences, including genetic and microbiological sciences.

Williams’ post-FDA duties included Vice president for Policy Research at Mercatus Center, George Mason University. Serving as a member of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Science Advisory Board, Chairman of the Board for the Center for Truth in Science and as a Board Member of the Institute for the Advancement of Food and Nutrition Sciences.
