Comments for FDA General
Questions
1. General Comments It is imperative that the bioengineered experimental foods, including those already approved by the fda, remain outside the open pollinated food market. Growing these foods within our open biosphere and not in a controlled environment is iresponsible and reprehensible. We may be letting a genie out of the bottle that can never be put back. Many Americans are experiencing severe stomach problems and various cancers that can be linked to ingestion of toxins and allergens. No amount of profit can compensate for these enormous costs. Pre market notice should include a public forum on these issues, not just announcements from paid authorities on the policies that have been decided upon.
