EPA declares chemical warfare on America

Posted on

chem warfareIf you thought Roundup was bad, you haven’t seen anything yet.  Chemical warfare on our environment has just been upped in Florida and 34 states now with the EPA’s, as well as the state of Florida’s, approval of Enlist Duo, a cocktail of Roundup and 2,4-D (a component of Agent Orange from the days of the Vietnam War).

“The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates that by 2020, the use of 2,4-D on America’s farms could rise between 100 percent and 600 percent now that it has been approved as part of Enlist Duo”. According to experts, “When you combine increased use with the potential for increased developmental, cancer, and other health impacts, you could create a perfect storm of hazard and exposure coming together.”

The NRDC and other environmental groups are fighting the illegal approval of this dangerous mix of chemicals.  We need to get on board as well and fight the use of this poison locally and nationally.
