“Demand the President step in & oppose EPAs approval of the New 2,4-D resistant Genetically Engineered Crops!”
“In signing this petition, I am urging the President to deny the EPAs approval of the 2,4-D and glyphosate herbicide combination developed by Dow Chemical Company. This mix of chemical herbicides known as Enlist Duo would mean an additional hundred million pounds of chemicals will be used to produce corn and soybeans across the country, putting families, children and the environments health at risk. Communities living downwind of fields and thousands of schools within 200 feet of corn and soybean fields are at risk of inhaling the new Enlist Duo herbicide. Exposure to the chemical 2,4-D is linked to an increased risk of non-Hodgkins lymphoma, thyroid & reproductive problems, Parkinsons disease and neurological damage. Do not allow the EPA to approve this highly toxic herbicide mix.”
