Ban Agent Orange GM maize in South Africa
  
  

 

Why this is important to me

Please support this petition as the GMO Authorities in SA have given the green light for the importation into SA, of Dow Chemical’s highly controversial 2,4-D tolerant GM maize (variety DAS 40278-9) into South Africa, where it will be used as food. 2,4-D was one of two active ingredients in the infamous chemical weapon, ‘Agent Orange’, used to devastating effect during the Vietnam war. Exposure to 2,4-D has been linked to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a cancer of the white blood cells.
