Trouble on Tap

We know that neonicotinoid pesticides are killing the bees. But what are they doing to us?

A new study, conducted by the U.S. Geological Survey and University of Iowa scientists, suggests that when neonics find their way into our drinking water and undergo common water treatments, they are transformed in ways that are potentially harmful to humans.

In her latest blog post, Dr. Jennifer Sass, senior scientist with the Natural Resources Defense Council, says the potential harms outlined by this new study could be “a big deal risk-wise because neonics are the most widely used insecticides on the market.”
