—EPA Approves Duo Herbicide “” EPA has given Dow AgroSciences the green light to sell Enlist Duo, a mixture of the herbicides 2,4-D and glyphosate. The controversial cocktail is intended to be used with corn or soybeans that have been genetically modified to resist the herbicides. Several environmental and consumer advocacy groups are opposed to EPA’s decision, claiming that 2,4-D has been linked to thyroid problems, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, decreased sperm count, and Parkinson’s disease.
