We do not know much about GM foods. We know they are created from Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) but not much else. Some believe they can be helpful however multiple studies have found that they can lead to cancer, death, and various other harms. GM foods are created using chemicals which may be partly why they could be harmful. If you look at biological magnification - the way poison (such as pestasides Monsanto makes) increase in each organism as it goes up the food chain - it may explain why GM foods are more harm than help.
I simply want the food we eat to be healthy for us, not give us cancer. I would also like more studies for us to truly know what happens when we eat GM foods. Companies such as Monsanto, the largest creator of GM foods, are the cause of all of this. Monsanto is a chemical company that also produces food... That doesn't seem right to me. Several countries have banned or limited GMOs and GM foods, such as Peru, Italy, Saudi Arabia, the UK, Spain and many others. It seems the U.S. is one of the few 1st world countries that has STILL not banned GMOs. Many Americans eat GMOs and GM Foods and don't realize they are slowly being poisoned. It is time for the United States to follow along and ban GMO's and GM foods. After all, we the people deserve to know what is REALLY in what we eat.

To:
House of Representatives
Ban Genetically Modified Organisms and Genetically Modified foods. They are harmful to us, the People, and should be removed. We need to know what is in our food and not be poisoned by GMO's and GM foods.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Because we the people should be informed about the contents of the food we eat - and since you won't force companies to LABEL their products as containing GMO's, requesting that you BAN them is our only alternative to BOYCOTTING all Monsanto products.
