GMOs Have Created Stronger Weeds – Now “Agent Orange” Toxin Under Consideration As Next Stronger Weed Poison

“By creating GMO crops that can be sprayed with 2,4-D - an ingredient in Agent Orange - if it gets approved for use, they will be drenching the fields, drenching the food with 2,4-D.”

- Jeffrey M. Smith, Ex. Dir., Institute for Responsible Technology

 

Above:  Spraying the whole GMO RoundupReady crop with Monsanto's Roundup (glyphosate) was originally supposed to kill all the weeds while soybeans, corn or other glyphosate-resistant crops would survive. There has been a more than 1900% increase in glyphosate use on RoundupReady soybeans from 1994 to 2006, according to the Center for Food Safety in May 2008.  Below:  But RoundupReady crops have ironically provoked “frankenstein weeds” that are no longer killed by Roundup glyphosate, but thrive causing even more problems.
