Returning now to the food and drug law itself, for an additional explanation of it. This law is broadly divided into two regulatory parts ; but they each have a common protective purpose, which has been defined. The first part of this law is a basic one just indicated. For it is a law to prohibit an injurious or deceitful adulteration, misbranding and false advertisement of all food and drugs ; and its last prohibition was added in the twentieth century, when the art of modern commercial advertising was developed. The major statute of this law is of course the 1938 Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, which is practically administered by the United States Food and Drug Administration ; and it has the supreme importance of being our national law to outlaw any food or drug that may kill or harm.
