There was a PBS news story on TV last night about USA corn and soybean farming. Seems that in the brilliant GMO scheme of Roundup-tolerant seeds, that Roundup (brought to us by Monsanto) is no longer killing weeds, especially the aggressive weed waterhemp. SO Dow Chemical (who manufactured napalm for the Vietnam war AND owners of Union carbide, responsible for the Bhopal disaster) has come up with an even more brilliant scheme: “Duo,” an herbicide composed of glysophosate + 2,4 D, one of the components of Agent Orange PLUS the seeds to plant and spray with this toxic mix.
This is a chilling story of greedy multinational corporations not only controlling food production, but poisoning land, plus most likely consumers in the process.
I can’t believe it.
