Comments for FDA General
Questions
1. General Comments I ask: That all GE foods be labeled to give you a choice For mandatory pre-market safety testing and environmental review of all GE foods For a moratorium on all GE foods until these requirements are met. I am concerned that: New proposed FDA regulations do not adequately protect me & my family from the risks of GE foods Emerging studies show GE foods could create new toxins, antibiotic resistance, allergic reactions, and other dietary risks for consumers and therefore should not be generally recognized as safe (GRAS) Individuals with ethical or religious dietary concerns may be unwittingly consuming foods that contain genes from other species GE foods have been shown to be a siginificant threat to the environment GE agriculture puts organic foods at risk-organic crops are being contaminated by genetic drift
