Ban BHA& BHT food preservatives

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.

please ban calcium chloride in cheese
Quit playing craps with the health of our nation. My people's well-being is not a commodity that is renewable. Ban these known carcinogens from our food and beauty supply. End the allowance for our citizens to become unwitting guinea pigs in a game of corporate gain? Stop this maddness immediately.
For this to be allowed in our food is appalling, I fear for the health of my family, our "healthy" food options are limited. This is a huge problem for Americans and our horrible healthcare system. I am a veteran sworn to protect Americans, even if its from our own government and the corporations who run it.
we dont need to risk our health anymore especially with all the money spent on our nations obamacare. please consider what is the benefit of risking allowing a small amount of contaminent in our food?
Please help working class families afford safe food by banning these chemicals. Not all families can afford Whole Foods and similar stores that do not carry products with these chemicals.
it's crazy that i have sign this to get this poison removed
Just finished chemo for breast cancer - now get terrible stomach aches after ingesting anything with BHT - terrible stuff!! BAN IT
Protect the children and those who don't know.
Why would we give our citizens cancer? It's sad that I live in a state where we kill for profit. You can't trust anything in America. It turns a necessity into poison for money. All for pieces of paper. Our whole economy relies on people being sick. The machine is murdering us. **** this country. It's destroying everyone's lives.
