In response to Dow's petition to the USDA for deregulation of their GE Corn

 "If the federal government wants to bury something in the news, and burn up part of our window to publicly respond, you can bet they’ll do it around the holidays.  The public has 60 days to comment on Dow’s petition for deregulation..." The Corniacopia Institute http://www.cornucopia.org/2011/12/action-alert-say-no-to-dow-chemic...

 

The visibility of my "public" comment is likely to be null, as is obvious thanks to this government statement, "Once your comment is received, the appropriate agency must process it before it is posted to Regulations.gov. Given the fact that certain regulations may have thousands of comments, processing may take several weeks before it may be viewed online." Therefore I am making my complete and total outrage at this petition by Dow requesting the USDA's deregulation of their already underregulated and undertested GE Corn truly public everywhere I can.

 

Public Comment 80f8c3acPetitions, Plant Pest Risk Assessments, and Environmental Assessments; Availability: Dow AgroScience, LLC, Corn Genetically Engineered for Herbicide Tolerance

 

The deregulation of this and any other genetically engineered product is not just irresponsible regarding human health, due to the void of accountability thanks to the complete lack of labeling and testing of this product to prove its safety, but would be downright biological warfare. Release of a plant or animal product that has been modified at the gene level means that genetic contamination with other species both on neighbouring farms and in the natural environment is inevitable, and this catastrophe is an irreversible one--you cannot issue a recall in hindsight on this or like products. Once released into the world a living, reproducing organism will spread its seed indefinitely.

 

Do not put this nation's people or its environment at risk of detrimental and irrevocable consequences, both known and unknown. Do not allow deregulation of Dow's GE corn. I demand an increase in its regulation; I demand that continuous independent conduction of research be done on all genetically modified organisms, and I demand their quarantine immediately until their safety, with regard to both biodiversity and the health of humans and all other animal and plant species, is proven.

 

Thank you for your consideration. I sincerely hope you will consider this nation's, and therefore the world's, food security by denying this petition and any similar appeal for the deregulation of genetically modified organisms.
