Label all chemicals and ingredients in food

Dairy products with hormones,#1 meat with antibiotics,#2 almonds with propylene oxide,#3 cans lined with Bisphenol A,#4 chicken fed arsenic,#5 beef treated with carbon monoxide,#6 and a myriad of other chemical processes and ingredients. Tell the FDA to develop labeling rules that would require all foods to be labeled with any chemical added or found in the product due to the way it is manufactured. People have a right to know if they are eating hormones, arsenic, propylene oxide, or any other chemicals. Additionally, many food colorings are made from insect products that are labeled "natural coloring" or natural "flavoring."#7 The FDA should require all food products to list accurately all ingredients and chemicals that are found due to processing or packaging. People have a right to know.

      I have MS, which has an unknown cause. With lots of different methods tried, I have discovered what I eat to be the most effective in controlling the disease and its symptoms, and that means not eating processed, packaged food, and making sure there are no added hormones or antibiotics. I cannot afford to become immune to an antibiotic at this point. Please help me become healthy again. I am only 23 years old and I don't want this disease to stop my life.

      It is our right to know what is being put in the food and products we buy!
