Whatever It Takes

Chlorpyrifos is a neurotoxic organophosphate insecticide that, even at very low levels, has been linked to severe birth defects, brain damage and mental disorders in children, including ADHD and autism.

So why is it still being sprayed on more than 50 fruits and vegetables? Considering that U.S. Environmental Protection Agency scientists, under the Obama administration, said it should banned?

Because the chemical’s maker, DowDuPont, has a lot of money and influence. And because the Trump administration loves a profitable corporation—especially one that’s happy to bribe politicians.

Absent any indication that federal regulators will step up to protect the public, some states are enacting their own bans on this toxic pesticide.

Could your state be next? We shouldn’t have to beg for laws that protect our kids from poisons. But if that’s what it takes . . .

TAKE ACTION: Ask your Governor and state legislators to ban chlorpyrifos!
