Ban BHA& BHT food preservatives

308 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.

This stuff had caused me agonizing body aches, nausea, vomitig, diarrhea and migraine like headaches for many years before I figured out the culprit! Even today, I can tell within a few hours when I accidentally consumed this poison.
As with so many wrongs, it's legal because it's profitable.
Would you eat a hand full of bha or bta or even better yet BPA. Well you have no option on the BPA because the world is coated in it but it's not to late to get rid of horrible chemicals in the food supply. Oh and did I mention I'm only 22 years of age and this is a life problem for me, please don't mess with the "pursuit of happiness", because it's hard for me to be happy with my body full of triclosan, bha, tbhq, Caesium-137, think about it please and thanks.

This is a relatively painless fix. Please consider this vast improvement to the health of constituents.
If we can't be leaders at least follow the leaders in food safety!
Come on remove BHT and BHA (and any similar replacers) from the food chain.
You can make some substantive positive changes that affect us all and families and children.
A win for the good guys ... it's time!
This ingredient is banned virtually in every other country, except here in the United States. It's toxic. Why are we feeding this to our children?
