Comments for FDA General
Questions
1. General Comments I urge you to require labeling of genetically engineered foods. At this point, we do not know enough about the long-term consequences of these foods for human health or for the environment. Until we are sure that these foods pose no risks, it makes most sense to follow the precautionary principle, and act conservatively.
