quick USA petition signing: no Agent Orange GMO soy!

From fooddemocracynow.org:

Dear Friend,

Right now the USDA is considering the approval of dangerous new GMO crop that has been genetically engineered to tolerate the highly toxic chemical 2,4-D, a main component of the Vietnam War era defoliant Agent Orange.

As the first generation of biotech crops has failed, creating millions of acres infected with superweeds, the biotech industry is now introducing even more dangerous chemicals into our food system. That’s gross!

Already thousands of farmers and scientists are raising concern over the potential harm Dow Chemical’s 2,4-D soy will cause to human health, the environment and the livelihoods of family farmers. Already, the chemical herbicide 2,4-D has been called one of “the most dangerous chemicals out there”

We need your help to stop it. Please click on the link below to join us in telling the USDA to keep Agent Orange soy off our plates.

Tell the USDA, to keep Agent Orange soy off Your Plate!
