Comments for FDA General
1. General Comments I am very dissappointed in this department. A government department that is supposed to be a watchdog for the people and is not doing anything, except watching our health decline through products and foods that have gone through your department without any real research or comments from this department. I am appalled that you have not issued a warning about GMO's or GE foods! It is not a hard thing to do, just tell companies that there needs to be labeling with further research is completed. There needs to be long-term research and the public has the right to decide whether-or-not they want to buy a product, but without labeling, the public cannot decide without the help of outside interpreters such as GreenPeace's Truefoods organization. Please do what you are supposed to do and what you were started to do, and protect the people, be out watchdog like you were when you first started. Thank you for your time and consideration. Sincerely, Patrick Espinosa
