Could this be the dumbest thing the USDA has ever done?

The Obama administration announced last week that it expects to approve corn and soybeans that have been genetically engineered by Dow Chemical company to tolerate the toxic herbicide — 2,4-D. They are planning this approval despite the fact that use of this herbicide is associated with increased rates of deadly immune system cancers, Parkinson’s disease, endocrine disruption, birth defects, and many other serious kinds of illness and reproductive problems.

 

I would take exception to the word “dumb” in the headline.  Corrupt, criminal, fascistic, unaccountable — there are much better descriptors.  As “Common Dreams” is a “progressive” apologist kind of website, they don’t accuse the administration of crimes.
