Any day now, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is expected to approved Dow’s Enlist Duo, a highly toxic herbicide made from a combination of glyphosate (the key ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup) and 2,4-D (one of the chemicals used to make Agent Orange).

The herbicide is designed to be sprayed on Dow’s new Enlist-brand GMO corn and soy crops, which were recently approved by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA)—despite more than 500,000 public comments, a letter signed by 60 Members of Congress, and letters from medical professionals and scientists asking the agency to reject the crops.

The USDA and the EPA have failed us. It’s time for President Obama to step in. Please send a letter to President Obama and ask him to stop the toxic madness!

After you send your letter, please take a moment to call the White House hotline at 202.456.1111 and leave a message. You can say something like:

"I’m calling to urge President Obama to stop the approval of Dow’s “Enlist Duo” herbicide and reverse USDA’s approval of 2,4-D-resistant corn and soybeans. Enlist Duo contains 2,4-D, a chemical that has been linked to cancer, Parkinson’s disease, endocrine disruption, and reproductive problems, and glyphosate, the focus of multiple recent studies linking the toxin to a host of illnesses. Please protect our health, and the health of the environment, by rejecting Dow’s latest request to escalate the use of this bee-killing pesticide."

The USDA admits that if the new crops are approved, the annual use of 2,4-D would jump from 26 million pounds to 176 million pounds.

Independent scientists predict the spike in the use of 2,4-D would be even more dramatic.

The proliferation of Roundup Ready crops caused a 527-million-pound increase in the use of glyphosate in the first 16 years, between 1996 and 2011. If farmers start growing Dow’s Enlist brand corn and soy, experts estimate the use of 2,4-D could increase by up to 50 times.

Ask President Obama to stop the toxic madness!
