Comments for FDA General
Questions
1. General Comments I believe i have a right to know if the food i am buying is bio/genetically engineered. Labeling of such foods should be mandatory. I am not particularly worried at this point as to a possible adverse effect on humans. As with so many other products through the past century, and as we are too impatient to properly test over a length of time, time itself will tell if a detrimental effect will occur. I am concerned about the adverse environmental effects that have ALREADY been seen. I want mainstream food suppliers to know that many years ago, i quit buying their food because of this issue. Their refusal to look at the environmental damage and only look at the profit potential is irresponsible. Their actions have a reverberation that affects us all.
