Despite massive objections, the U.S. Department of Agriculture is close to taking a very dangerous step forward approving Dow’s new brand soy and corn crops.
The crops are engineered to withstand massive doses of Enlist Duo herbicide, concocted from a combination of 2,4-D (used to make Agent Orange) and glyphosate, the key ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup.
Dow’s 2,4-D is already the seventh largest source of dioxins in the U.S. It’s been linked to a host of ills, including birth defects, infertility, allergies, Parkinson’s disease, endocrine disruption and cancer.
Please call your Congressman and the Dept. of Ag and let them know in no uncertain terms that you do not want these crops approved on September 8th.
