Done!! and sent to friends

My Dad was in 'Nam and when he died it was from being exposed to Agent Orange - cancer and kidney failure. So, I'm definitely against it's use.

Thanks for the info, Linda

Dear Friend,

Right now the USDA is considering the approval of dangerous new GMO crop that has been genetically engineered to tolerate the highly toxic chemical 2,4-D, a main component of the Vietnam War era defoliant Agent Orange.

Dozens of scientific studies have found that exposure to 2,4-D is linked to major health problems such as cancer, lowered sperm counts, liver disease, Parkinson’s disease and disruption of hormonal, reproductive and neurological systems.

As the first generation of biotech crops has failed, creating millions of acres infected with superweeds, the biotech industry is now introducing even more dangerous chemicals into our food system.

Already thousands of farmers and environmentalists are raising concern over the potential harm Dow Chemical’s 2,4-D corn will cause to human health, the environment and the livelihoods of family farmers. Already, the chemical herbicide 2,4-D has been called one of “the most dangerous chemicals out there”

But we need your help to stop it. Please click on the link below to join us in telling the USDA to keep Agent Orange corn off our plates!
