Comments for FDA General
1. General Comments I would like all bioengineered/genetically modified food to be REQUIRED to be labeled as such. If given the choice, I would choose to buy non-gm food. History is full of examples, from introduced species to thalidomide, in which products and actions considered safe turned out to be exceedingly dangerous. Our knowledge of genetics is still so rudimentary, I believe it is irresponsible to create these modified organisms and feed them to our children.
