Vietnam-era chemical poison on US farmsSalem-News.com
America's farmlands are to be carpet-bombed with Vietnam-era Agent Orange chemical if approved, in what is the latest example of how the US commits acts of war against humanity.
(WASHINGTON D.C. Press TV) - Considered by world nations to be a "Weapon of Mass Destruction" (WMD), a key chemical in Agent Orange, 2, 4-D, may be dropped on US farmland in a few months time.
According to an article published on Tuesday, the US govt. may soon approve the petition of the Dow AgroSciences Chemical Company to unleash Agent Orange on agricultural land across the United States.
If Washington approves Dow's petition, America's corn fields would be the subject of mass pesticide poisoning with 2,4-D chemicals turning them into chemical warfare zones.
Having continuously invested in genetically engineered crops, Dow AgroSciences, is planning to produce a variety of Genetically Modified (GE) corn that is immune to 2,4-D, which comprises 50% of the recipe of Agent Orange.
The corn itself would be resistant to 2,4-D, absorbing the chemical and transporting it right into the structure of the corn kernels.
However, the chemical would turn the corns into "Agent Orange corn bombs" that would be toxic and dangerous for human beings.
The introduction of 2,4-D-resistant GE corn is just an example of the US industrial chemical giants and (Genetically Modified Organism) GMO companies countless acts of genocide against innocent people.
During the Vietnam War millions of gallons of the horrifying chemical, Agent Orange was dropped on civilians in order to poison North Vietnamese soldiers and destroy foliage.
The former president of the Vietnamese Red Cross, Professor Nhan, has described using the chemical in the Vietnam War as, "a massive violation of human rights of the civilian population."
