BHA is a potentially Cancer causing carcinogen that the United States FDA approves the Nationwide use of.
Meanwhile other countries (such as in Asia and Europe) have stepped forward by placing a ban to stop the use of BHA as an food preservative.
The US National Institutes of Health report that BHA is reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen based on evidence of carcinogenicity in experimental animals. In particular, when administered in high doses as part of their diet, BHA causes papillomas and squamous cell carcinomas of the forestomach in rats and Syrian golden hamsters.
We, the undersigned, call on the US Food and Drug Administration to place a ban on the use of BHA as an preservative in human-consumable food(s) of any kind.
