Comments for FDA General
1. General Comments I implore you, please make labeling a requirement for genetically modified foods, I do not want my children or the children I care for eatting modified foods at there tender ages. I feel I have a right to know, being an American. Those companies producing and manufacturing the genetic foods have plenty of money to market their product. I should have a choice in this matter. After all, we are what we eat. I prefer eatting food made by nature. Most of all, I prefer having a choice. At any expense, therefore if you do not put some restrictions on these companies, I will only by organic foods and grow my own foods. I will not be happy with this limitation brought on by you not allowing me to have a choice. I do support genetics in some instances and think science has made many strides for many good causes in this field, yet still I believe I deserve the right to chose.
