Diabetes is a chronic, fatal disease. Many diabetics must take insulin. Many seem to do fine on Humulin, Novolin Human, Humalog, NovoRapid (Novolog), Lantus and other synthetic insulin types, however, many diabetics need beef insulin, beef-pork insulin or pork insulin (Iletin 1 & 2 insulins). The US FDA and Eli Lilly have elected to make it very difficult for some US, Canadian and all diabetics to be able to obtain insulins which work best for them.

This is an international problem and you don't even have to be a US citizen to help us to help diabetics around the world. Diabetics should not be forced to inject themselves with the waste-products of genetically engineered e. coli bacteria or yeasts. They should be entitled to freedom of choice in insulin that they must inject to live. This petition seeks to get the US Congress to make beef insulin legal in the US. Beef insulin has been the insulin of choice for 80 years and is proven. None of the synthetics have worked so well in managing diabetes.

If you know a diabetic, odds are about 1 in 10 that s/he will eventually need beef insulin to control his/her diabetes (there is absolutely NO BSE mad-cow] risk in any beef insulin according to the most recent research we've read). The FDA reports 8 deaths per month from the synthetics at a 1-10% reporting level.

We the undersigned do hereby petition the United States Senate and the United States Congress to initiate enabling legislation to immediately restore beef insulin to the United States by domestic or foreign manufacturers.
