Here is a little taste of an article a our friend Ari sent us. You can read the full story here:
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.
