USDA-Approved Agent Orange: It’s Coming to a Farm Near You

Ah, the sweet smell of Agent Orange in the morning.

Our benevolent agricultural guardians at the USDA have announced that they are allowing the introduction of new corn and soybean seeds that have been designed specifically to withstand a dousing with 2,4-D, a key ingredient in the infamously deadly Agent Orange.

Now we get to be the unwilling guinea pigs while USDA-approved test fields are planted.

It seems that our government did not learn its lesson from the millions of people gruesomely affected by the ingredients of Agent Orange the first time around.

Agent Orange, you may recall, was brought to wartime Vietnam by the evil masterminds at Dow and Monsanto. American forces sprayed it all over the countryside of Vietnam from 1961 to 1971.  Its purpose was to defoliate trees and shrubs that were providing cover to enemy forces, and to kill food crops that were providing sustenance.

This caused damage to the ecosystem of Vietnam that is still present today. More than 5 million acres of forests were destroyed, and half a million acres of farmland were tainted. It will take centuries of nurturing for the land to recover.

The environment was not the only thing affected. Exposure to Agent Orange resulted in five horrible illness in those exposed: soft-tissue sarcoma, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, chronic lymphocytic leukemia (including hairy-cell leukemia), Hodgkin’s disease, and chloracne. (source) What’s even worse is that the damage may not be limited to those directly exposed – it can affect offspring even up to 3rd and 4th generations.

Over a million US veterans were also exposed:

In 2010, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs provided $16.2 billion in compensation to 1,095,473 Vietnam-era veterans.[i] The agency does not relate these service-connected benefit figures directly to Agent Orange/dioxin exposure or to any other possible cause of illness, nor does it provide data on total compensation for the years since the war ended. 

Thousands of U.S. veterans returning from Vietnam reported health problems almost immediately and rapidly associated them with Agent Orange/dioxin exposure. Controversy over these assertions began just as fast, and continues now.

Many questions remain:   Whether (and how to test whether) the illnesses of veterans and their offspring are related to Agent Orange and other herbicide exposure; Levels of dioxin present in the chemicals; The accuracy of data about veterans’ exposure; Levels of corporate, military and government awareness of dioxin’s presence; Fixing of responsibility for the contaminant’s presence and liability for its damages; Details of research protocols, accuracy of findings and reliability of interpretations; and Decisions on who should pay what to whom for which possible courses of remedial action.  This “blame game” has blocked action in both the U.S. and Vietnam, needlessly prolonging the suffering of millions of U.S. veterans and Vietnamese.  – (source)


And now, the USDA, in all of their infinite wisdom, intends to expose Americans to one of the deadly ingredients via our food supply.

Corn and soybeans are present in some form in up to 90% of the processed foods available today. So not only will we be exposed to the effects environmentally, anyone who eats processed food will be directly consuming it. Mmmm…Corn with Agent Orange Sauce…Yummy.

Some scientist argue that 2,4-D is not responsible for the horrible human toll extracted by Agent Orange, while others claim the weed-killer is deadly.

According to the Associated Press, scientists don’t believe 2,4-D to be responsible for health complications caused by Agent Orange, and have instead pinpointed the ingredient 2,4,5-T – banned by the EPA in 1985 – as the culprit. Previous findings by the EPA have also declared the weed killer safe to use, but other groups aren’t as confident.

As RT reported in the past, the Natural Resources Defense Council has linked 2,4-D to cases of cancer, genetic mutations and more. In addition the impact on humans, the Save Our Crops Coalition believes it will be extremely difficult to contain the application of the herbicide to a particular area.

“These herbicides have been known to drift and volatilize to cause damage to plants over ten miles away from the point of application,” the coalition claimed. (source)

Proven in the island petri dish of Molokai, the danger of GMO crops is not limited to the consumption of those foods. The farming methods themselves cause an epidemic of deadly health problems to those near the fields, including cancer, respiratory illness, and horrible skin disorders.

The EPA review of these experimental new seeds will occur over the next few months, and if approved (and we all know it will be since the EPA is as much of a sell-out as the USDA) farmers across the country will then be able to plant the new seeds douse the fields with 2,4-D throughout the growing season.

When the very air you depend on to survive is poisoned, what can you do? How can you prep for this?

Agent Orange.  It’s coming to a farm near you.

    • It looks like someone has their head screwed on straight. I concur. I’m not sure if amused is the word but every time I read “they didn’t learn the lessons of the past” or “they are incompetent”, I smirk. It’s part of the plan, not incompetence. The sooner you all figure that out, the sooner you can do something to protect yourselves and fight back. Peace.

        Can we all identify?

        Henry Kissinger wrote in National Security Memorandum 200: “Depopulation should be the highest priority of U.S. foreign policy towards the Third World.”

        unfortunately our society is not capable of going deep into unpleasant topics that indite ourselves….if he and the rest of the elite who write and speak non-stop on the topic of depopulation can be open about disposing of billions of people, wouldnt they eventually have something to say about the “undesirables” in the west as well….

        ….the American mind is a fascinating study in the power of mind control. It simply has lost the capability to contend with reality. It has encapsulated itself in a cocoon of rationalizations. The history of the German people around WWII is like looking in the mirror for America. Considering most key Nazis within the eugenics program were brought to the US after the war these policies have not been a surprise to be continued and dramatically expanded upon.

        The American mind simply has reached a point where it must push reality out. We are unwilling to accept what we have helped perpetuate on the world and very dramatically now on ourselves. We would have to face up to our own repulsive responsibility in it all and our very fear-based existence.

        We have reached the pinnacle of victim consciousness, where the mind can not accept reality nor act upon it.

        one could go on and on with a who’s who of American and European “elite”, but a simple one is Bill “Mr. born again depopulationist” Gates speaking at a TED conference to a bunch of the “brightest” on using vaccines to depopulate:


  • 2,4,5t is the part of agent orange you need to worry about. it has dioxin.that’s a hell of a lot worse than 2,4,d.
    get your info straight.

  • Your chemistry is incorrect. I live in Midland MI, home of Dow Chemical Co., their Agro-Sciences have developed this compound which is NOT the same as agent orange. check your chemistry and facts.!!!!! This will be a great improvement to agriculture.

    • The problem is, due to wind drift, and water runoff the people that use these products can’t keep it on their property. Therefore these products cannot be used without violating another person’s property rights. It doesn’t matter if you think these products are harmful or not, to lawfully use them they have to be contained on your property.

  • More than 5 million acres of forests were destroyed, and half a million acres of farmland were tainted. It will take centuries of nurturing for the land to recover.

  • I suffered an “herbicide over-exposure” from Hi Dep 2-4 D being sprayed on the grounds where my camper was located in 2013. A cloud of it covered my camper, garden, and clothes that were hanging out to dry. I had a seizure, neurological & breathing problems, paralysis of arms & legs, skin rash, swelling in hands, organ & liver pain, etc, etc,…All these problems started that day & some came back if I went outside. Started falling for no reason, dropping things…My liver enzymes were elevated for 4 months. My life became hell on earth. Doctors could do nothing to help. I felt better with a pure organic diet & lifestyle, and after several years I improved. But some effects still occur, my life is not the same. Don’t let it happen to you. Poison is poison…. Protect your family and the beautiful world God has given us…. Brenda Ann
