      Hi Anant Joglekar,

      I just signed a petition asking Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to stop the
      Biotechnology Regulatory Authority of India (BRAI) Bill from being passed.

      This bill will create a body which will single-handedly clear all genetically
      modified (GM) crops. Public opposition made the Karnataka government ban field
      trials of GM crops in the state recently. Now we need to get the national
      government to stop this bill.

      You should ask Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to stop the dangerous BRAI bill
      too.

      Regards,

      The thought of another organism’s gene in my vegetable is revolting. Imagine if
      this comes true, what will we be eating?

      Genetic modification of food crops will make this a reality. These potentially
      toxic foods harm our health and the environment in which they are grown. The
      safety of our food will be lost forever if our government passes the
      Biotechnology Regulatory Authority of India (BRAI) bill.

      This bill will create a non-transparent body which will single-handedly clear
      all genetically modified (GM) crops.[1] Public opposition made the Karnataka
      government ban field trials of GM crops in the state recently.[2] Now we need to
      get the national government to stop this bill and save our food.

      You should ask Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to stop the BRAI bill because it is
      dangerous to health.

      Public pressure helped get a moratorium on genetically modified Bt brinjal last
      year.[3] This can be achieved again. Support from lakhs of people will help put
      pressure on the PM to stop this bill.

      Research and tests across the world have exposed the potential health hazards of
      GM food.[4] Yet our government thinks that these are safe for human consumption.
      Save your food, sign this petition now!
