Comments for FDA General
Questions
1. General Comments I write to express my strongest objection to the lenient proposals around GE foods. Putting aside the danger of these plants and animals even existing in nature (that would be another Agency), it is horrifying that agribusiness would be allowed to feed people these substances without mandatory testing, and unimaginable that our government would allow them to do so without even labeling the product as containing GE foods. It is already proven that there are health concerns around GE foods. Given the relatively short period of time that they have existed, it is obvious that many more problems may yet need to be uncovered. Whenever I am having a political discussion and expressing my support of government agencies, I always give the same example - When I go to the market and buy a chicken, I don't want to have to think 'Is this safe?' but instead want to think 'The government wouldn't let them sell this to me if it weren't safe'. Please help me to continue to have confidence in our government and our food supply! Thank you.
