(NaturalNews) Just in time for the new year, the Dow Chemical Company is quietly trying to convince the federal government to deregulate a new variety of genetically-modified (GM) corn that is resistant to 2,4-D, a chemical component that made up roughly half of the Agent Orange chemical weapon formula sprayed on villages and crop fields during the Vietnam War. But you have the power to stop it from happening by signing a new petition created by the consumer watchdog group Cornucopia Institute (CI).

You can access that petition here:
http://www.cornucopia.org/2011/12/action-ale...

Last week, NaturalNews broke the story about Dow's efforts to sneak through deregulation of 2,4-D right during the Christmas season when most Americans are busy spending time with friends and family. An insider tip revealed that Dow had filed a petition to deregulate the GM corn variety known as DAS-40278-9 that is resistant to 2,4-D, which also means the agri-giant intends to deregulate 2,4-D, which has been banned since the 1970s, as well (http://www.naturalnews.com/034492_Dow_AgroSc...).

For the past several years, the biotechnology industry has been watching its so-called miracle pesticide and herbicide formulas become increasingly ineffective, as pests and weeds literally become "superpests" and "superweeds." Formulas like Monsanto's Roundup, for instance, also known as glyphosate, are no longer able to protect GM crops from destruction by insects or weeds because these invaders have developed chemical resistance.

So the industry is having to up the ante and introduce newer, more deadly pesticides and herbicides in order to keep the GMO racket alive. But in order to do this, Monsanto, Dow, and the other major players will have to convince the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to first deregulate these more deadly formulas, which in this case means deregulating a major component of the infamous Agent Orange chemical formula.

Now is the time to overwhelm the Federal Register with comments of opposition to deregulation of 2,4-D resistant GM corn

The public has 60 days from the publishing of Dow's petition in the Federal Register on December 27, 2011, to leave official comments of opposition to 2,4-D's deregulation. This means the comment period ends on February 27, 2012. It is vitally important that you leave an official comment in the Federal Register, because federal agencies must review and consider these before making a decision.

In other words, if thousands, or millions, of concerned Americans send a surge of opposition to deregulation of 2,4-D resistant corn, the Feds will know we are paying attention and just might put a stop to it. You can leave an official comment of opposition by visiting:
http://www.federalregister.gov/articles/2011...

CI has also created its own petition directly to President Obama and US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Secretary Tom Vilsack urging them not only to oppose Dow's 2,4-D corn, but also to stop irresponsibly approving GMOs in general. The petition also expresses support for the mandatory labeling of GMOs at the federal level, an issue which will soon be up for a vote statewide in California (http://www.naturalnews.com/033763_GMOs_Calif...).
