Since corn is in almost everything we eat (either as a filler or sweetener, plus in our livestock's feed), this doesn't bode well. Oh, you eat only organic corn? Don't for a second think that pesticide residue doesn't end up in our water supply.
But I digress. Let's take a close look at a section of the label of a product containing 2,4-D and marvel at the lunacy of:
- "KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN DANGER-PELIGRO" (But it's not dangerous if it's in their food and water? And if it's so dangerous, why are we using it in the first place?)
- "OTHER INGREDIENTS" (I don't care if the other ingredients are completely harmless; why aren't they identified?)
- "See inside of label booklet for additional Precautionary Statements, First Aid, and Directions for Use." (How many people are looking at the booklet inside of the label?)
What a shame.
