we've got signatures, help us get to 10,000 by April 23, 2011
Backyard grilling is a summer tradition that should serve up hearty flavor along with some healthy protein.
Yet a recent study found that most non-organic veggie burgers contain hexane, a pollutant and neurotoxin found in gasoline.
Factory workers exposed to this toxin risk skin and nervous system disorders -- yet we consume it freely in products with non-organic, genetically modified soy. The FDA does not regulate hexane levels in foods. Eighty-five percent of America's soy is genetically modified, and soy isn't just in foods like veggie burgers and soy milk. Soy can be found in energy bars, breads, crackers, cakes, cereals, instant coffee, soups, commercial meats, and many other foods.
Don't let toxins invade your pantry or ruin your backyard barbeque: tell the FDA to regulate levels of hexane in foods.
