Dr. Oz Asks the American People to Oppose New 2,4-D GM Crops

Did you see the groundbreaking Dr. Oz show on GMOs and pesticides that aired on September 22, 2014? He came out the strongest against genetically modified organisms (GMOs) that he ever has, and particularly against GM foods engineered to withstand the 2,4-D and glyphosate combination developed by Dow Chemical Company.

He had guests explaining the dangerous “pesticide treadmill” we’re on—something I explain in my new book Going Against GMOs—and he said: “I’m very concerned that I’m at the beginning of a catastrophe—one we don’t have to subject ourselves to.” He also said: “America, we are running out of time…. Let’s let Washington know we mean business when it comes to GMO foods.”

Then he ended up doing something he has never done before, asking the American people to sign a Take Action petition to demand the President step in and oppose the EPA’s approval of the new 2,4-D and glyphosate herbicide combination that new crops are engineered to withstand.

Watch the first 3 minutes of the show.

Watch his call for the petition.

Here is a link directly to the petition:

I encourage you to sign the petition, too. It’s time for the American people to speak up en masse against chemical-doused GM foods, and this petition could be a big turning point in reclaiming our right to healthy food.
