The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is taking comments on a dangerous proposal that will put our farms, our food, and our environment at risk.

The EPA is proposing a dramatic expansion of the use of the toxic pesticide Enlist Duo. Enlist Duo is a mixture of glyphosate (the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup®) and the even more toxic 2,4-D (part of the chemical mixture Agent Orange). If approved the pesticide cocktail could be used on corn, soy, and cotton in 34 states — up from 15 states where the product was previously approved for just corn and soy.

Tell EPA to reject the expanded use of Dow’s toxic mix of glyphosate and 2,4-D

The rush to expand the use of Dow AgroSciences’ toxic chemical concoction of glyphosate and 2,4-D for use on the next generation of genetically engineered crops comes only one year after the EPA asked a court to revoke its previous approval due to the unknown risks it posed, and now EPA suddenly wants to more than double the number of states where the pesticide can be used.

Enlist Duo is designed to be sprayed on Dow’s genetically engineered (GE) corn, soybeans, and cotton, killing the weeds but not the crops. Monsanto’s Roundup Ready crops are already failing because they created superweeds resistant to Roundup. Now imagine Roundup on overdrive. Scientists, lawmakers, and millions of citizens know that more chemicals are not the answer to the superweed problem – yet the pesticide giants “answer” (wonder why?) is to dump more chemicals.

Tell EPA to protect our food and farms, not chemical companies’ profits

Dow created Enlist crops as a quick fix for the superweed problem created by “Roundup Ready” crops that were genetically engineered to withstand what would otherwise be a toxic dose of the herbicide glyphosate. Just as overuse of antibiotics has left resistant strains of bacteria to thrive, repeated use of Roundup on those crops has resulted in the proliferation of glyphosate-resistant “superweeds” across millions of acres of U.S. farmland. Farmers are already reporting that some weeds have now also developed tolerance to 2-4, D. This means this next generation of new herbicide-tolerant crops will result in massive increases in pesticide use and perpetuate the pesticide treadmill.

Major news outlets are saying these crops are a serious cause for concern. According to the Los Angeles Times: “Just as the nation must stop overusing antibiotics if it hopes to slow the emergence of resistant infections, it must do the same with herbicides and genetically modified crops. The way to deal with so-called superweeds isn’t by escalating the arms race against them.”

This GE crop system ensures a toxic spiral of ever-increasing chemical use on our land and food and poses a grave threat to our health. 2,4-D has been linked to major health problems including cancer, Parkinson’s disease, endocrine disruption, and reproductive problems. This approval would trigger millions of more pounds of toxic herbicides dumped onto our land. Even USDA admitted it could be as much as 176 million pounds per year!

Lost Ways Of Survival Video

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.

Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.

We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.

Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:

    How many times can you use the word “TOXIC”? In the article the question wa asked ,”why?” The why is that roundup and 2-4-D have been proven over more than 30 years of research and world-wide use to be the two safest chemicals to make it possible to feed a hungry world. Most humans and animals still prefer to eat and expect farmers to make food to be available 365 days a year. They can’t possibley do it with 18th century farming methods.
    You use 2-4-D on your yard, parks golf courses, everywhere. All it is is a growth regulator that causes the weed to grow itself to death. Does not affect grass (or corn), or insects or mammals but only broad leaf plants. Nothing to do with the toxic part of “Agent Orange”. That was eliminated from the market years ago.
    Roundup is unique in that it only is absorbed by plants and goes to the root and kills the whole plant. Any that touches soil or anything else turns completely inert. No residue, no traces. Sure there are a couple of plants developing resistance to roundup. They will just continue to grow as they already do. And 2-4-D takes them out. Nothing “super” about them. They won’t take over the world!
    BTW, Round-up makes No-Till farming possible which vastly improves soils, reduces compaction, stops wind and water erosion, greatly reduces sediments and other run-off in our waterways. There will never be another dust bowl type event where no-till methods are used. Most other chemicals used for no-till do have problems with toxicity, round-up just goes inert.
