Please take a moment to sign the petition hosted by Care2 to Stop Feeding Our Babies Genetically Engineered Infant Formula and Baby Food!
- Target: U.S. Food and Drug Administration
- Sponsored by: Institute for Responsible Technology
Nearly all of our infant formula, including every one of the millions of bottles distributed free by the government, contains genetically engineered corn or soy, as well as milk from cows injected by bovine growth hormone.
The FDA doesn’t conduct or even require a single safety study on GMOs. They allow companies like Monsanto to do their own safety tests. Keep in mind that the FDA also assured us that Monsanto’s past products – DDT, PCBs and Agent Orange – were perfectly safe. This was before they were banned. Today, Monsanto can put GMOs into baby bottles, sippy cups, and breakfast cereal, without even telling the FDA or consumers.
Because of their less-developed immune systems, infants and young children are more sensitive to toxins found in GMOs. And diseases linked to GMOs in animal-feeding studies are skyrocketing among America’s children. This can’t be a coincidence.
Children are More Vulnerable
• Infants and young children are more sensitive to toxins found in GMOs.
• Their immune system and blood brain barrier are not fully developed.
Again, diseases are skyrocketing among America’s children. Their disorders include the same ones identified in GMO animal feeding studies by the physicians group, the American Academy of Environmental Medicine.
Enough is enough. Tell the FDA that they must stop companies from feeding our babies genetically modified infant formula and baby food and to stop using our kids as guinea pigs.
