Make yourself useful: Five food actions in five minutes

By Rachel Cernansky



4. Keep “Agent Orange” off our food

As we reported in January, the USDA is currently considering approval of a new variety of genetically engineered corn from Dow Chemical that is resistant to 2,4-D, one of the most commonly used herbicides in the U.S. — and one of the main ingredients in Agent Orange.

The corn is controversial to say the least: If approved, it will increase the use of 2,4-D, which has been associated with cancer, nerve damage, hormone disruption, and other health effects. Some are also concerned that more 2,4-D could lead to a new breed of “superweed,” the fast-growing weeds that have developed resistance to the herbicide Roundup (glyphosate) since Monsanto introduced its genetically engineered Roundup Ready crops.

Check out this fact sheet from the Center for Food Safety [PDF]. Thencontact the USDA before the public comment period ends on April 27 to tell them what you think.
