Agent Orange is no longer produced -- so why am I bringing it up now?

Because Dow AgroSciences (a subsidiary of Dow Chemicals), who was one of the original manufacturers of Agent Orange (AO), has developed a new generation of genetically modified (GM) crops -- soybeans, corn and cotton -- that are designed to resist a major ingredient in AO: the herbicide called 2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D)

Incredible if this ends up being allowed. I saw the effects of Agent Orange in Nam, and it wasn't pretty; it was horrific!

Dioxin is the most caustic man-made chemical known. Dioxin is a general term for hundreds of chemicals that are produced in industrial processes that use chlorine and burning. Disturbingly, it has a half-life of 100+ years when it is leached into soil or embedded in water systems. Dioxin was the most harmful component in Agent Orange (the recipe for Agent Orange is 2,4-D and 2,4,5-T herbicides).

The EPA says that air emissions of dioxin have decreased by 90% since the 1980′s, but dioxin is dangerous at any level. The study appears to omit any analysis of dioxin transmission in water and land. The danger is growing because Dow AgroScience has received preliminary USDA approval for its...

Yep, they are trying to kill us or that is what my husband is always saying.He says that flouride is an industrial waste that they get to get rid of by dumping it directly into the water supply.

IMHO, Dr. Mercola is a scam artist/quack who makes millions catering to the fears and scientific ignorance of the general public. I would not trust him to tell me the sun rises in the east...
