Tell USDA We Won't Stand for "Agent Orange Ready" Seed!

Dow AgroScience has created a strain of corn that has been genetically engineered to withstand an herbicide called 2,4-D, a known carcinogen and one of the two ingredients in the infamous Agent Orange. Dow is now seeking to freely use this 2,4-D-resistant corn. GE modification to create resistance means they will be free to use ever-increasing amounts of the herbicide, with no limits whatsoever.

These new herbicide-resistant crops will be planted alongside conventional and organic crops. This increases the potential for cross-contamination, and for the spillover of toxic herbicides into the groundwater and neighboring farms.

Please write to USDA and protest this plan. Point out the serious health problems linked to 2,4-D, the danger of cross-pollination and contamination of surrounding farmland by the herbicides, as well as the environmental unsustainability of creating new GE seeds to withstand increasingly poisonous herbicides.
