The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is about to issue a dangerous approval that will put our farms, our food, and our environment at risk.
EPA may announce approval of Dow Chemical’s new “Enlist Duo” herbicide within the next week. “Enlist Duo” is a mixture of glyphosate (the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup) and the even more toxic 2,4-D (part of the chemical mixture Agent Orange).
Please take just a few seconds to urge President Obama to stop this toxic herbicide and the genetically engineered crops that depend on it!
Enlist Duo is designed to be sprayed on Dow’s genetically engineered (GE) corn, soybeans and cotton, killing the weeds but not the crops. Monsanto’s Roundup Ready crops are already failing because they created superweeds. Now imagine Roundup on overdrive. Scientists, lawmakers and millions of citizens know that more chemicals are not the answer to the superweed problem.
