Our Special today is corn chowder with Agent Orange
Tuesday, February 4, 2014
Remember Agent Orange? The US Army sprayed it all over Vietnam. It defoliated (destroyed) plant growth and brought on cancers and birth defects.
One of its significant ingredients was a chemical called 2.4-D.
Well, the US Dept. of Agriculture has cleared the way for brand new Dow GMO corn and soy crops. They are engineered to withstand spraying with 2,4-D.
The theory is, the corn and soy will survive, but pesky weeds will die.
Of course, the drifting spray of 2,4-D will kill all sorts of other plants, including fruit trees.
And there is that species called Human. Have a little lymphoma with your corn chowder.
