Agent Orange Corn???  Lovely…

Agent Orange Corn??? Lovely…

Unless you are living under a rock, you have to wonder why many of our government agencies are ignoring the test results proving that biotech pesticides are harmful to all living things.  WHY???

And now, why are Vietnam Vets joining the Moms and food activists in the fight against genetically modified foods???  The answer is simple.  There is a new breed of GMO corn that resist heavy applications of an herbicide, called 2,4-D.  Our Vietnam Vets know, all too well, the many health problems caused by 2, 4-D because it is one of the two active ingredients in Agent Orange!!!  To add insult to injury:

 “The corn and 2,4-D are both being manufactured by Dow Agro Science, which has named its new corn “Enlist”, a name the veterans say is ‘a slap at all Vietnam veterans’.” *

I couldn’t agree more!!!  And yes, Monsanto also manufactures 2,4-D.

When will it end?  Can we, the little people, get them to look beyond $$$ to see what they are doing to us, our children, our pets…the cycle of life???

For more info and to sign the Center for Food Safety petition against the potential for more toxic pesticide exposure:

This is just one of the many reasons I am doing my best to grow as much of my own food from non-GMO seeds as possible.  All of you should consider doing the same for your health and your entire family’s wellbeing.
