The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, ignoring more than 60
members of Congress and a half a million citizens, late yesterday
approved a deadly new herbicide, Dow’s Enlist Duo, made from a
combination of Monsanto’s Roundup and Dow’s “Agent Orange” 2,4-D.
The new herbicide will be used on Dow’s newly approved corn and soy
crops, engineered to withstand massive doses of the new “Deadly Duo”
Where will the vast percentage of these new crops go? To feed animals on factory farms.
Take Action: Take the Factory Farm Free Friday Pledge!
Better yet? Pledge to boycott factory farms forever!
With yesterday’s approval of Dow’s Enlist crops and Deadly Duo
herbicide, the EPA, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which also
signed off on the crops, have signaled that they have no intention of
ending the rampant escalation of the use of increasingly toxic poisons
by industrial agriculture.
The only way we will stop them is by shutting down demand for GMO
crops. That will take millions of consumers switching to organic,
non-GMO food at the supermarket—and that means boycotting meat, eggs and
dairy from factory farms.
