Get neurotoxins out of our food

Action: Stop Pollution

December 23, 2015   Action Alert ID# 314

 

Once used in chemical warfare, organophosphate pesticides are now sprayed on the fruits, vegetables and grains that we eat, ranging from watermelons to lettuce leaves. These pesticides are toxic to humans and other animals, just as they are to insects, their intended targets.

Organophosphate poisoning has resulted in the death of more than 335,000 birds in North America. And those are just the deaths that have been documented and we know about.

It doesn't have to be this way. Organophosphates are not compatible with sustainable food production, nor are they necessary for high crop yields. They're simply a relic of the past, a reminder of what happens when the unthinkable becomes the new normal.

The EPA has the power to change this, but it needs public pressure to do the right thing. Urge the agency to make good on its promise to phase out these toxic pesticides.
