Agent Orange, used as an herbicide during the Vietnam era and linked to over 400,000 birth defects, is making a comeback — but this time it may end up on your dinner plate.
A company known as Dow AgroSciences has announced their development of genetically modified corn, soybean, and cotton plants that are metabolically resistant to the herbicide 2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D), which is a major ingredient in Agent Orange.
The initial deregulation story was first broken by Mike Adams as a tip reportedly surfaced from a concerned health advocate. Later, more information began coming to the light regarding the vital nature of the story in all of its depth.
You see, Dow Chemicals and Monsanto are heavily connected, and both companies were responsible for the manufacturing of Agent Orange and subsequently downplaying the negative effects of the concoction despite the compelling evidence. History must certainly repeat itself, as Monsanto continues to deny the legitimate health and environmental concerns regarding GMO crops.
How You Can Stop The Resurgence of Agent Orange Right Now
This Agent Orange ingredient is obviously a true danger to your health, but what are you supposed to do about it?
The great news is that the GMO crops resistant to 2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) are only in the developmental phase, and have not yet been unleashed on the environment. In a great opportunity for vital activism that can crush Dow AgroScience’s attempts to push their resistant corn into the food supply, a petition has been created to voice your concerns. The United States government has actually made available a petition that is open to public commentary until February 27th, 2012.
You can send a message to not only the United States government, but also to corporations like Dow AgroScience and Monsanto by signing this petition and voicing your concerns. In addition, please spread this vital information far and wide, as it is through awareness that GMO crops as a whole will be rejected on a global scale. Entire nations have already rejected Monsanto’s GMO crops such as Hungary, France, and Peru.
