Hidden "Agent Orange" Chemical They Want to Sneak into Your Food

excerpt from above:

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! Since then, Ive seen many photos of Vietnamese people suffering from a multitude of serious health problems all attributed to exposure to that beast.

excerpt from above:

The EPA announced that it has completed the first part of its study on dioxin, after more than 25 years of stonewalling.

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...

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...
