Take action to oppose the new 2,4-D-resistant GE crops!

The Environmental Protection Agency is considering an application by Dow Chemical Co. to use a combination of glyphosate, the chemical in Monsanto’s Roundup, with 2,4-D, a highly toxic weed killer, on genetically engineered corn and soybeans designed to withstand 2,4-D.

If the Dow application is approved, the 2,4-D experiment would roll out on a grand scale: likely on tens of millions of acres, leading to 2,4-D pollution of food, water, residential areas and wildlife habitat. We need to do everything we can to make sure the EPA keeps this toxic weed killer away from our food and out of our environment.

The EPA is now seeking comments from the public and that window is about to close. Before the EPA makes its final decision, the agency’s leadership needs to hear from YOU right now. Stand with JLI today to protect human health and the environment: Tell the EPA not to approve Dow’s application of 2,4-D herbicide for use on genetically engineered crops!
