As a breast cancer patient using foods and other natural
products as treatment, I am very concerned about maintaining the value of
the term organic. I ask that you not weaken the proposed ruling. Please
consider also the plight of the small, local (currently) organic farmer.
Do not penalize them financially or in other ways. They have helped people
like myself all these years. I currently pruchase the bulk of my organic
produce at local green markets.
I hope that strict standards will be enacted to keep "biotech" plants and
seeds separate from my organically grown product. Many times serious
problems arise sometime down the line (timewise). I hope we will NOT be
destroying plantlife as we know it through this genetic manipulation.
Thank you for your attention. I maintain a website for cancer patients and
will be keeping the over 3000 people who access my site, informed as to
the progress of these rules and regulations.
