The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency plans to take a serious look at the health and environmental risks of atrazine — a dangerous pesticide, commonly found in drinking water, that’s now detected in about 95 percent of our waterways.
Atrazine is a potent endocrine disrupter that causes complete sex reversal in male frogs at concentrations 120 times lower than what the EPA currently allows in our water supply. The toxic chemical also causes an increased risk of birth defects and cancers in humans.
Atrazine’s dangerous risks to wildlife and human health are unacceptable. It’s time for the EPA to ban this chemical.
Please take action now to tell the agency to ban the toxic pesticide atrazine and protect our health and environment.
