Stop Agent Orange Frankencorn!

Hi there!

I thought you might be interested in this alert from the Organic Consumers Association:

USDA Out-of-Control! Government Poised to Approve Agent Orange Franken-Corn

Monsanto’s RoundUp Ready genetically engineered crops (soy, corn, cotton, sugar beets and canola) are a failure, responsible for new breeds of super-weeds, millions of gallons of toxic pesticides sprayed on farm crops, and the propagation of a deadly new micro-monster that attacks plants, animals, and humans alike. Monsanto’s Roundup, even in the wake of this trail of destruction, is still the most widely used herbicide on the planet.

Now, rather than moving away from chemical and energy-intensive GMO crops and deadly pesticides, the USDA is preparing to escalate, letting chemical/biotech companies force a new wave of genetically engineered herbicide-tolerant crops, mutants that can survive being sprayed with the infamous herbicide 2,4-D, an Agent Orange ingredient with documented, uncontested major health problems that include cancer, reproductive problems, neurotoxicity, and immunosuppression.

We have until February 27, 2012 to try to convince the USDA not to approve Dow Chemical’s new 2,4-D-tolerant corn.
