Ban BHA& BHT food preservatives

412 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.

Cancer is rampant throughout this nation and allowing chemicals to be in our food that are capable of causing cancers is a big reason why. Even if there is a slight doubt as to whether a chemical can cause cancer or not, we should always ere on the side of caution and just not use it (or let it be used). Companies have shown time and time again that they value money over the health of others. We need to stand against this for not only ourselves but our children and families!
My son used different cereals organic and non organic. The non organic, had a little flame that held for a few seconds. The organic, no flame except Cascadian farm, but they use some Vitamin E oil. Pretty scary. Remove that crap from our food. Thank you!
I will check now on all labels of food that I buy. Thank you.
Anytime I eat a cereal that contains BHT as a preservative I wind up with a migraine. Please stop using it, it's not necessary and it's hurting people.
It is banned all over Europe...Why the hold up AMERICA?
Please ban HBT if it is found to be harmful
Tbhq. Bha and bht should be illegal. The corperations are killing because of the use of these chemicals. Its not right for the goverment to be feeding its people piosen. 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.
