This is a travesty

oppose appointment of Michael Taylor, a former VP and lobbyist for Monsanto, the widely criticized genetically modified (GM) food multinational, as senior advisor to the commissioner at the FDA. Taylor is the same person who as a high-ranking official at the FDA in the 1990s promoted allowing genetically modified organisms into the U.S. food supply without undergoing a single test to determine their safety or risks.

Taylor was in charge of policy for Monsanto's now-discredited GM bovine growth hormone (rBGH), which is opposed by many medical and hospital organizations. It was Michael Taylor who pursued a policy that milk from rBGH-treated cows should not be labeled with disclosures. Michael Taylor and Monsanto do not belong in our government.

As a whole, these offer scientific evidence that GM foods, hormones, and related pesticides are the root cause for the increase of many serious diseases in the U.S.

Since GM foods were introduced, diagnosis of multiple chronic illnesses in the U.S. has skyrocketed.

These illnesses include changes in major organs and in hormonal, immune, digestive, and reproductive systems.

These modifications to foods and food production may also be contributors to colon, breast, lymphatic, and prostate cancers ...

Experts are discouraged that regulators and GM companies systematically overlook potential side effects of GM.

Monsanto's objective to use biotechnology to change the world's food supply is the opposite policy direction your administration should pursue.

Your legacy of supporting Monsanto to have free rein in U.S. food policy is a nightmare scenario that is against the interest of all Americans and world citizens ...

FDA has approved every pharmaceutical and vaccines that have killed thousands every year. Merck's VIOXX killed 88,000 but no Merck owner or CEO faced criminal charges for criminal negligence causing harm and death.
