Breaking news: The Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit just found that the EPA illegally kept the toxic pesticide chlorpyrifos on the market. The agency did too little to determine the pesticide is safe for children.
Chlorpyrifos is one of the most dangerous pesticides on the market. But for decades the EPA has allowed it to continue to be used, despite the harm it causes to children’s developing brains. People who are regularly exposed to toxic pesticides -- farmworkers and their families -- have an increased risk of severe neurological conditions.
This new court ruling provides an opening to push the EPA ban it once and for all across the U.S.
Tell the EPA that children are more important than pesticide profits.
