The term "genetically modified organism" (GMO) may not be one that exists in most people's everyday lexicons — but it is one that needs exposure, because GMOs are found in many products we buy today.

GMOs are foods whose chemical structures have been modified, and can introduce new allergens into food as well as contribute to antibiotic resistance. In fact, GMOs can be found in many of the foods and products we give to our children these days. Infant formula, baby bottles, baby foods — these are all products that are made for children, who by definition also happen to have highly susceptible immune systems.

Until GMOs are proven safe, they shouldn't be used in ANY of our products, especially those widely used by young children. Tell the FDA to stop allowing the use of these products until it has proven them safe for human consumption.

Dear FDA commissioner Margaret Hamburg:

Children consume many products that may be genetically engineered. Because the FDA hasn't required an regulatory testing on GMOs, companies use them in their products without acknowledgement to the harm they actually may cause.

The problem with GMOs is that they are products whose chemical structures have been altered, and there has been no evidence proving that these modified substances are safe for human consumption. Because the chemical make-up is genetically engineered, products can cause unforeseen allergies and resistance to certain antibiotics.

Children are much more sensitive to toxins than are adults, which is why it's completely counter-intuitive to provide them with products that haven't been approved by the FDA.

For the health of our children, please don't continue to ignore this important issue.

Mar 3, 2015 (Name not displayed) My adult sister works to keep GMOs out of her diet to avoid RA-like symptoms. I'm all for increasing agricultural out-put, but right now we are ignorant of the consequences of our actions. Please do the research on the effect of GMOs so we know.

Mar 1, 2015 (Name not displayed) PLEASE stop the use of GMO's in our food & especially that of children, as they are more sensitive to toxins than adults are, but none of us need GMO's that have been outlawed in food by many other countries.

Feb 26, 2015 (Name not displayed) GMO's, with further research, may be implicated in, among other problems, "leaky gut" syndrome, which also may be linked to the rising incidence of autism. Please help assure that we are doing all we can to prevent these abnormalities and their effects.

Feb 23, 2015 Sapphire Anderson The long-term effects of GMO is not known & not proven safe, & the public should not be exposed to them. Prove the FDA isn't a toothless tiger only caring about $$$ & actually do what the public wants, not what big business pay you to do.
