Over a hundred million additional pounds of toxic pesticides associated with cancers and birth defects are coming to a field near you. UNLESS YOU STOP IT! There's a 30-day public comment period and it MIGHT BE OUR LAST CHANCE to stop this chemical assault

Most certainly signed, thanks for posting and Ggma Sheila for forwarding. Remember Agent Orange and Vietnam. The soldiers suffered lifelong, their children were born with medical problems, and the people of Vietnam suffer to this day from the affects and children born with horrible birth defects.

If we don't speak out loud and clear no one is going to do it for us. Each person must be a voice, there is no room to sit on the fence when it comes to something like this.

Signed...This lunacy cannot be allowed, where are their brains, seems they must be walking on their brains to come up with hair brained scheme like this. Have they lost all semblance of sanity, this poisonous chemical is still causing birth defects and people will be suffering for years and years and these fools want to introduce it into the food chain. Do they care, that they are condemning people to deadly cancers and other unknown deadly ailments? It's so important for everyone to sign, because as Dandelion said, so elegantly, this is no time to sit on the fence. Why can't the powers that be, see this is totally asinine. The citizens, environment, ecosystem and future generations deserve a much bigger and earnest duty of care from their elected members of government.

I knew a man whose job it was to load agent orange onto the aircraft that would then defoliate Vietnam. He had large areas of hair missing from his head. He had large ares of skin that we constantly inflamed. The inflammation would move around on his body. His joints hurt. He was denied VA benefits because Dow said that Agent Orange could not cause these effects in people. Kill rats and mice, but it was ok for people to handle it.
Now they want to bring this madness to the American people. Kill Vietnamese was not enough.
