Reject Agent-Orange Resistant GMO Crops!

January 22, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

The USDA is considering allowing farmers to plant corn and soy that is resistant to a toxic herbicide called 2,4-D (a component of the herbicidal weapon Agent Orange). Numerous serious health risks have been linked to 2,4-D, and yet there is no regulation or study on these crops. In fact, farmers would be able to plant these crops without any government oversight.

Without proper advance research, this move could lead to an even greater use of dangerous chemicals, herbicide-resistant weeds and genetic contamination, as well as putting other farmers under severe economic strain.

We need to urge the USDA to examine the effects of GMO crops on people, plants and wildlife before deregulating these crops. Make your voice heard today!
