Petition Station: Instead of Reacting...Take Action: You Can't Make This Sh*t Up. EPA Approves Wid
What the fu*k? The revolving door of government oversight officials and corporate lobbyists just managed to get approval for Enlist Duo, a toxic herbicide designed to spray on GMO corn and soybeans engineered not to die from the poison. Non- genetically modified humans and wildlife exposed to the deadly herbicide will suffer the consequences.
Sign this petition urging the President to deny the EPA’s 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 environment’s 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-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, thyroid & reproductive problems, Parkinson’s disease and neurological damage.
