[PDI] "Agent Orange" corn?

Ready for what's next from Dow Chemicals? GE crops modified to be
resistant to the herbicide that's a main ingredient in Agent Orange!

The herbicide, 2,4-D, is linked to cancer, reproductive problems, and
Parkinson's and is banned entirely in parts of Canada and Europe. And yet
the USDA seems ready to approve the new GMO Corn and Soybeans, unleashing
a major increase in the use of 2,4-D.

Now, the EPA is considering stepping in to stop or restrict the
application of 2,4-D, which would be a major blow to Dow's Agent Orange

Join me in urging the EPA to reject Dow's plans to spray this incredibly
toxic herbicide. Submit a comment here:
