Comments for FDA General
1. General Comments While I fully support the research and use of genetically engineered food, I also support the free and mandatory labeling of foods used with such ingredients. The only way the free market system can judge whether genetically engineered foods are commercially viable, is by making the people aware of what they are purchasing. Naturally the same goes for the use of organic and non-organic growing techniques. Please strengthen the language of these rules to give people the information they need to decide!
