Comments for FDA General
Questions
1. General Comments The question is not whether to have voluntary labelling. We need mandatory labelling, but before we provide for that, we need to halt all production of genetically engineered foods until controlled, thorough tests involving a minimum of ten years of animal and voluntary human studies have been conducted. This is common sense. Money is not God. But the amount we will spend on trying to reverse health problems from ventures like these will exceed any previous expenditures on human health. It could break our economy, not to mention the chain of (healthy) human life.
