The U.S. Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) history began in 1906 when President Teddy Roosevelt signed the Federal Food and Drugs Act. Though the names and faces have changed over the past century, the mission of FDA has remained the same: to protect and promote the public health.

FDA is the oldest federal agency dedicated to consumer protection and is a scientific, regulatory, and public health agency that oversees products accounting for 25 cents of every dollar spent by Americans. Almost any food, cosmetic, drug, radiation product, medical device or biologic product in use you can think of is regulated by the FDA. Scientists and medical professionals within FDA's five Centers work to ensure products you use, such as medicines, pacemakers, vaccines and dietary supplements, are safe and effective.
