Organic Consumers Needs Your
Help To Fight Against The New Agent Orange GMO Crops

Who will protect you from ‘Agent Orange’ crops?

Dear Organic Consumer,


Dow Chemical calls its new “Enlist”-brand
of 2,4-D-resistant GMO crops a “blockbuster.” Monsanto similarly
touts its new, highly-volatile dicamba-resistant soybean.

We call them toxic and dangerous.

But unfortunately, the USDA, which is
more committed to protecting Dow and Monsanto’s profits than it is
to protecting your health, is set to approve these new “Agent
Orange” and dicamba-resistant corn and soy crops any day now. And
when the poisonous residues of these two super-toxic herbicides
contaminate the human food supply, in literally thousands of
non-organic processed foods and ingredients, they won’t be labeled.

We need your help to get GMO crops and foods labeled—and banned! So far, we’ve raised almost $80,000 toward our $200,000 goal. Can you help us raise another $120,000 by midnight, March 31?

Click here for instructions on how to donate online, or by phone or
email. 

If we reach our goal, two of our allies—Mercola.com and Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps—will pitch in to match our $200,000 by donating $100,000 each. We’ll use that $400,000 to fight for state GMO labeling laws, and for county bans on GMO crops.

Dow’s Enlist-brand corn and soy are genetically engineered with 2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D), a toxic chemical that was part of the deadly Vietnam-era Agent Orange cocktail that has destroyed millions of lives. Monsanto’s dicamba-resistant soybeans are a close cousin of these Agent Orange crops.

2,4-D has been linked to liver damage, endocrine disruption, depressed thyroid hormone levels, infertility and cancer. 2,4-D-resistant crops will be able to withstand huge amounts of 2,4-D poison—poison that will eventually wind up not just on our food, but in our soil, water and air.

The Enlist brand is just one of many increasingly toxic GMO crops in Dow’s GMO pipeline. Dow is “spending millions of dollars and racking up hundreds of patents,” according to a recent article in the Indianapolis Busines Journal, which also reported, “Dow has more seeds, herbicides and fungicides about to reach the market than it has at any time since 1989.”

The U.S. government and its regulatory agencies are not going to protect us from these escalating assaults on our health and our environment. It’s up to us to drive crops like Dow’s Agent Orange corn and soybeans, and Monsanto’s dicamba-resistant soy off the market.

The anti-GMO movement has come a long way in the past two years. We are poised for victory. But we must win the upcoming decisive battles of 2014 in the frontline states of Vermont and Oregon, and intensify the struggle in other states and counties.

Please help us win this fight. Every donation made by midnight, March 31, no matter how large or small, will bring us closer to our goal of $200,000—and that much closer to matching funds from Mercola.com and Dr. Bronner’s.

Thank you!
