A new generation of super-toxic GMO crops designed to survive repeated sprayings of the herbicide 2,4-D (a component of the notorious poison Agent Orange) are set for release in the United States. Monsanto and Dow are promoting these toxic varieties after their first generation of herbicide-resistance Frankencrops generated a growing army of superweeds.

For farmers who were told RoundUp Ready crops would make weed control easier, the superweeds have been an absolute nightmare. Nearly half of farmers have a problem with these weeds, forcing them to spend more money and time to come back and spray crops with ever more deadly pesticide combinations.

But for Monsanto, Dow and other chemical companies, it's just an opportunity to sell more pesticides. 2,4-D, one of the pesticides Monsanto supplied to the military during the Vietnam War for use in Agent Orange, is linked with cancer, endocrine disruption, reproductive problems, neurotoxicity, kidney and liver damage, and birth/developmental defects.
