Yesterday, Trump’s EPA signaled yet again that pesticide-makers’ profits trump children’s health.
Despite a November 2016 EPA proposal to ban the use of Dow’s chlorpyrifos on food crops, the new administration now says it wants “greater certainty” as to whether or not chlorpyrifos causes birth defects, brain damage and mental disorders in kids.
While the EPA drags its feet, ignoring warnings that pesticides like Roundup and chlorpyrifos cause cancer in adults (Monsanto is facing over 700 lawsuits from people diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma following exposure to Round), and brain damage in kids, you’re supposed to sit by quietly, and do nothing.
But you won’t—because we’ll help you and thousands of people like you push back. With lawsuits. With lobbying. With grassroots organizing to "repeal and replace" the lawmakers, from Main Street to Capitol Hill, who let corporations plunder and pollute. But we’ll need your support.
We’re just one day from our midnight March 31 spring fundraising deadline, and still about $20,000 short of our goal. Because this is “GMO Awareness Week,” Mercola.com will make your donation worth three times its original amount, by triple-matching it. If you haven’t yet contributed this quarter, please consider a donation today.
