Petition To Protect Children's Health

Messages Sent So Far
Without question the FDA is deliberately ignoring several Congressional mandated food safety laws while choosing to conceal massive scientific evidence proving soy contains multiple "natural" contaminates that are especially proven without question as capable of severely damaging the health of fetus, infants and children.

The FDA overwhelmingly acknowledges that toxic components of soybeans include; estrogenic endocrine disruptors, inhibitors of several essential developmental enzymes, phytic acid, and heavy metals, that are each and all capable of causing severe and irreversible physiological, reproductive, and neurological adverse effects especially during most vulnerable developmental (fetus, infant, child) exposure.

The FDA lists "soybean, genistein, daidzein (soy phyto-estrogens) on their "Poisonous Plant Database" without enforcing soy toxicity WARNING labels.

1999 FDA Federal Register confirms, "No data were submitted to document the current levels of nitrites or nitrosamines in soy protein isolates. GRAS status of soy did not include a thorough evaluation of the safety of potentially harmful components, e.g. lysioalanine, nitrites and nitrosamines, trypsin inhibitors, phytates, and isoflavones."

With the FDA's very own confirming knowledge of soy's poisonous components, along with several hundred scientific studies also confirming highest risk for developmental adverse soy phyto-toxic effects, it is urgently necessary that Congress take immediate action to investigate and demand that the FDA lawfully post appropriate soy phyto-toxic WARNING labels for public disclosure to protect the health of children from a number of adverse effects.

Also of importance is the 2010 NTP Brief on soy infant formula of which concludes "Clear evidence of (soy formula) adverse effects" to absolutely warrant WITHDRAWAL of soy formulas from the U.S. marketplace as equal to the vast majority of countries around the world. The first 3 ingredients of soy infant formulas are; Corn syrup, soy and sugar, of which each and all are FDA known as developmental poisons.

FDA Commissioner Hamburg's assistant Michael Taylor had been attorney for Monsanto prior to his FDA position. Monsanto profits in the billions from the marketing of soybean seed, in fact genetically modified Round-Up ready soybean seed, as one possible reason why the FDA remains diligent to protect soy industry profits while simply ignoring complete duty to maintain the best health and well-being of America's children.

With evidence of increasing marketing of soy phyto-toxic products and soy fillers that target children's foods and beverages, there is no greater time than NOW to put a stop to this ongoing FDA concealing and withholding massive evidence proving high risk potential for the soy causation of multiple adverse developmental health effects.

Surely the American public deserves the immediate right to know about FDA acknowledgment of developmental soy contamination!

This petition is asking that there be an investigation and the public be informed. Is that so terrible?

Soy is a well known endocrine disrupter. Why put soy fillers in children's foods??

Several individuals at the FDA should be serving time. I have dozens of emails to Margaret Hamburg requesting action due to adulteration of infant formulas. Carrageenan is used as an emulsifier and thickener. There is an unresolved citizen's petition filed against this ingredient due to harmful effects on human intestinal cells. Well known to initiate inflammation and as a possible carcinogen, it is still allowed as a GRAS ingredient. This violates the laws of the 1980 Infant Formula Act. It is of little concern to individuals at the FDA to ensure safety towards our most vulnerable population. Is there any wonder why we now have the sickest generation of children today?

Estrogen killed my Mother and was responsible for my daughter having breast cancer. It's time the FDA Stops pretending that estrogen is health benefit for women and recognizes the dangers. Estrogen has contributed to more deaths than lead or asbestosis yet still remains on the market. Do you think the FDA feeds their children soy products?
