OT: ABILITY TO PROVIDE FDA WITH COMMENTS ON BIOENGINEERED FOODSgreenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
Sorry to slip this in here but I noticed yesterday on the FDA home page they are providing an opportunity to accept comments on Bioengineered foods (via the web). Now is your chance to share concerns/information. Seriously, you may question whether participation in the legislative process works but it does. We just saw the defeat of the FDIC "Know your Customer" rule because of comments. Plus I know the FDA has to analyze and report statistics of comments to the Congress. Maybe this opportunity will have some positive results. For you Nutrasweet haters--isn't Nutrasweet considered one of the bioengineered foods????

No, NutraSweet is a chemical, not a food substance. It was the FDA that allowed the stuff to be on the market in the first place! Read about this on the web.

I believe a bio engineered food is when they take a pig gene and insert it into a vegetable, say a tomato.
Nutrasweet is simply a chemical that turns into another chemical in the body. A very bad, poisonous chemical I might add. Check out www.dorway.com
