The new GMO crops are awaiting approval and designed to withstand heavy sprayings of the highly volatile pesticides dicamba and 2,4-D, a component of the Agent Orange war chemical. These pesticides are known for their ability to turn into chemical vapor and travel significant distances, harming neighboring farm and garden crops. 2,4-D is a hormone disrupting chemical and has been linked to birth defects, cell damage, and lymphoma.
Of major concern? Drift of dicamba and 2,4-D pesticide vapors can travel a half-mile away from the application point.
