| WTF News |

On Monday’s show, the well known Dr. Oz called out the US Environmental Protection Agency over the proposed approval of Enlist Duo, a new herbicide mix primarily made of glyphosate (known as Roundup) and a new form of 2,4-D (Agent Orange).

This is not the first time that Doctor Oz has given susbstantial air time to GMO concerns. He has reached out mainly to parents who are discovering the health effects in their children.

Dow Chemical, a lesser known participant in GMO crops, is poised to change the environmental dynamic of corporate farming again with its new combination herbicide.

Dr. Oz also highighted a letter to the EPA signed by well respected scientists and medical professionals.

An Environmental Working Group article discussed some of the problems in the current process.

Dr. Oz also highlighted some alarming stats related to pesticides, noting that the current usage rate is approximately 1.1 BILLION pounds per year and the impact of GMO and related practices will lead to an increase of possibly 170 million additional pounds.

Of course Monsanto has a response, but at least it is not a secret if Bloomberg reporters are compelled to mention it.
