Ban BHA& BHT food preservatives

392 Letters Sent So Far

These two closely related chemicals are added to oil-containing foods to prevent oxidation and retard rancidity. The International Agency for Research on Cancer, part of the World Health Organization, consider BHA to be possibly carcinogenic to humans, and the State of California has listed it as a carcinogen. Some studies show the same cancer causing possibilities for BHT.

BHT and BHA are totally unnecessary. To avoid them read the label. Because of the possibility that BHT and BHA might cause cancer, both should be phased out of our food supply.

That is an act agianst humanity and an act of terrorism. Just like the epa dumping all the waste in the animus river. Which should be considerade act of terrorism. And guess what nobody is getting introuble for it
Include TBHQ, Aspartame, and any other known carcinogen.
I am severely allergic to these 2 chemicals, and it infuriates me that there is so little I can eat b/c they are in everything. When did our natural food become so chemical, and why is this ok??? It's not, and it's time for us to do something about it.
America's health should come before profit and convenience.
Other countries have banned these chemicals which are in all of our Children's snacks. Please help Americans have the same quality food!! There is no reason for these chemicals to be in our food.
Why in the world do we have to file a petition against the use of these chemicals just because the U.S. gov't wont ban them like all those other countries!? It's a shame!
