The Answer To Superweeds? Superpoisons! | crop-dusting-456x300 | Agriculture & Farming Organic Market Classifieds Toxins

The U.S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) has an answer for superweeds—and it’s called super poisons.

Ignoring the public outcry and pleas by saner members of Congress, the USDA last week approved Dow’s new corn and soy crops, genetically engineered to withstand not one, but two poisons—a super-toxic, super-poison comprised of glyphosate, the key ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup, and Dow’s 2,4-D, made with an ingredient that was used in the Vietnam-era Agent Orange herbicide.

Now that the USDA and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have both signed off on the crops, there’s only one thing standing between you and the unleashing of 200 percent – 600 percent more 2,4-D into the environment: approval by the EPA of the herbicide itself, Dow’s Enlist Duo.

According to Food & Water Watch: “Because 2,4-D is prone to drifting away from the field where it is applied, increased use of the herbicide will put grapes, tomatoes and all other specialty crops that are not engineered to withstand exposure to 2,4-D at risk.”

Not to mention the risk it will pose to humans, including children and farm workers.

But hey, Dow stands to rake in another $1 billion in sales from its “Deadly Duo” Enlist crops and poisons.
