I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but we just lost a critical battle for the health of our children and grandchildren and all future generations. But you can still help!
The Environmental Protection Agency approved Enlist Duo, a toxic herbicide made from Agent Orange 2,4-D and glyphosate, the main chemical component in Monsanto’s Roundup. This noxious mix of chemicals will now be used on Dow’s new herbicide-resistant corn and soy seeds, which have already been approved by the USDA.
Agent Orange Devastated Vietnam
Agent Orange was the chemical defoliant used by the US army in Vietnam. It has been found to cause permanent environmental damage — but more critical — it has been found to cause serious medical conditions in anyone — the American veterans who served in Vietnam and the Vietnamese people.
After the health fallout from Agent Orange, I never thought I would hear that we are actually using this devastating chemical again.
It has caused very serious medical conditions like immune problems, neurological problems, endocrine disruption, reproductive problems and cancer (just to mention a few) in anyone exposed to it.
Agent Orange Will Be in Your Food
Now they are engineering corn and soy to resist these harsh disease producing chemicals in repeated sprayings.
It has been predicted that using chemicals to try to kill weeds will only lead to resistance and so it has.
This is now the next generation.
Once the weeds begin to resist these repeated sprayings they will most likely come up with another generation of genetically modified corn and soy to resist yet more toxic agents.
This is economically engineered to create a never-ending market for the chemical companies, who seem to have the politicians on board.
These genetically engineered corn and soy crops are as deadly as the chemicals they are sprayed with.
Escalating Chemical Warfare Across America
Where is this headed?
This is an escalating chemical warfare race against American soil. The use of these new GM crops will cause an increase in the use of 2,4-D. This will increase our exposure to more harmful chemicals that will end up in the food supply and will further damage the soil.
No one has investigated the health repercussions of this.
Using a more toxic chemical is only a temporary solution to an escalating problem caused by the very companies who are pretending they are the solution to the problem. Frankly, they are probably very pleased that the problem of super weeds has emerged. It allows them to create more and more toxic chemicals that need to be used repeatedly and are bad for the soil and the people…
But a situation that is great for their bottom line.
We know how toxic glyphosate (from Roundup) is. And we know how toxic Agent Orange is.
Sadly there seems to be no one protecting the people.
This new application for the chemical from Agent Orange, 2,4-D, is contaminated with dioxins — recognized as the most toxic substance known. The EPA has reported that 2,4-D is the seventh largest source of dioxins in the US.
Dioxin contamination in the rivers and soil around Dow Chemical headquarters in Michigan has led to the highest dioxin levels ever found by the EPA in fish. This has been linked to breast cancer in the contaminated areas.
One would think the EPA would take a stand on this! Yet another government agency that is NOT protecting the people!
We need to stop this insanity!
What You Can Do to Help
Right now we have a chance to make sure dangerous chemicals don’t wind up unannounced in our food supply. GMO labeling initiatives on the ballot in Colorado and Oregon would require pesticide-ridden genetically engineered foods to be clearly labeled.
If you donate today, your donation will be matched 3 to 1 by the incredible teams at Presence Marketing and Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps.
Dr. Bronner’s has already donated over one million dollars toward GMO labeling. He has a great product (that I use daily) and he stands behind his convictions!
If you can’t donate, help spread the word!
Your children’s children will thank you!
