Tell the USDA You Don’t Want Agent Orange Corn!
Have you heard about this? A new type of genetically engineered corn has been developed which is resistant to a component of Agent Orange (2,4-D). For those who may not know it, Agent Orange is the code name used for a type of herbicide and defoliant used by the U.S. military as part of its herbicidal warfare program during the Vietnam War. It is HIGHLY TOXIC! 2,4-D has been linked to serious health effects following consumption of foods containing these residues.
Time is Running Out! We MUST Act Before February 27th!
We cannot let this happen! I urge you to tell the USDA NOT to approve this genetically engineered corn developed by DOW, a chemical corporation!
You can read about Agent Orange’s lasting effects on the people of Vietnam here. I HIGHLY recommend it.
