If Dow AgroSciences’ new GMO corn is approved, it will allow for widespread spraying of 2,4-D.
“The scientific community has sounded alarms about the dangers of 2,4-D for decades. Numerous studies link 2,4-D exposure to major health problems such as cancer, lowered sperm counts, liver toxicity, and Parkinson’s disease. Lab studies show that 2,4-D causes endocrine disruption, reproductive problems, neurotoxicity, and immunosuppression,” opponents to the GMO wrote in a letter to U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack.
