URGENT: Say NO to Dow's "Agent Orange" GMOs!
Dow Chemical is seeking approval for its “Agent Orange” crops -- corn and soy seeds genetically engineered to withstand massive doses of 2,4-D. This pesticide was one of the main ingredients in Agent Orange, the toxic chemical mix that caused devastating health problems in the Vietnam War.
2,4-D is a highly toxic pesticide -- more harmful to plant life than RoundUp -- and has been linked to serious health problems such as cancer, Parkinson’s disease, endocrine disruption and reproductive problems. EPA approval of 2,4-D resistant crops will bring a massive increase in even more toxic pesticide applications, threatening our environment, the safety of our food, and the health of people who live in agricultural communities across the U.S..
We need to stop the destructive cycle of using more and more of the most toxic pesticides on our crops. Don’t let Dow Chemical reap the profit from this dangerous pesticide at the expense of our environment, our farmers, and our health.
