El tío solía tener un campito chico, que al no darle los números para producir nada, siempre caía el que le arrendába el campo. Sembrába, fumigába a su merced. En el tiempo de cosecha destrozába el alambrado y pasába con las maquinas a levantar la cosecha. Dejándo el campo a la miseria, todo envenenado. El tío siempre andába por ahí arreglando los desastres causados. Arreglába el alambrado y se quejába de la miseria de éstas personas. El tío enfermo muy rapido, le sacaron un riñón hace 2 meses. Mejoró unos días pero el cancer ya había tomado los ganglios y otras partes del cuerpo. El pedía que le hagan masajes en las piernas porque no había nada que le calmara el dolor. Llorába de sufrimiento y no había más nada que hacer, hasta que la semana pasada falleció. El tío un ermitanio, peón de campo, era bueno.. ........... Dejo algunas fotitos para concientizar, si anda por esos lugares.. y siente picazón.. tiene problemas para respirar, le pica los ojos, no sabe porqué?.. lo más probable es que esté en un lugar tóxico, contaminado. Retirese a un lugar seguro, bañese. Cuide la salud de los suyos, informese! #glifosato#chlorpyrifos#pesticida#pesticide#cancer#conciencia#salud
*Must Read* Ok.. #chlorpyrifos The EPA banned this Pesticide 17 years ago from indoor use products (Raid, etc) because it contains Nerve Gas created by Nazi Germans! Now.. Donald Hitler's Adminstration has recently lifted the ban and wants to allow it for use on Our fruits & vegetables!! I can almost GUARANTEE YOU that He wouldn't DARE eat anything that contains it, yet he approves it for US 🤔 #staywoke#fucktrump🖕😠🖕 #impeachtrumpnow#donaldhitler
We’ll be honest: 2017 was a challenging year. But we have an ambitious 2018 to-do list. At the top of that list is protecting our #children and families from toxic pesticides. 💛 TELL THE SENATE: BAN CHLORPYRIFOS! While Trump’s EPA put corporate profits over #publichealth, Senator Tom Udall of New Mexico has introduced a bill that would outlaw #chlorpyrifos. The bill is called the Protect Children, Farmers and Farmworkers from Nerve Agent Pesticides Act of 2017 (S. 1624). Tell your senators to protect our kids and ban this toxic pesticide that is known to cause brain damage once and for all! 💛 ACT NOW ➡️ cfs.center/banchlor
Absolutely Disgusting! Monsanto & Dow Chemical have the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency @epagov in their pocket, and #bigagra $$$ is more important to governments than the World Health Organizations @who advice on toxic chemicals in our food supply. This is "American" news, but affects #canada and the rest of the globe. The Environmental Working Group @environmentalworkinggroup shared “Scott Pruitt’s #epa has ruled in Monsanto’s favor on #glyphosate – the key ingredient in #roundup. This ruling contradicts the #worldhealthorganization, which classified the #pesticide as a probable carcinogen. This is in ADDITION to the news that a group of Big Ag lobbyists – backed by #monsanto – has taken action to stop #california from the labeling Monsanto's Roundup as a #carcinogen. It is no secret that Pruitt favors pesticide companies: Earlier this year he reversed the scheduled ban of the neurotoxic pesticide #chlorpyrifos after meeting with its manufacturer, #dowchemical.” The #eu recently had a vote on the license of glyphosate, and it further won a 5 year extension for use in the EU, despite massive public petitioning and outcry. This means the battle for a ban will start again in about 2 years (2020). While we wait for our governments to lose their baby teeth, we can still have a huge impact by voting with our dollars, sharing information & education, boycotting harmful companies, supporting #organic#farmers, being involved in #foodsecurity and #sustainablefood, using our #democracy, and knowing that we currently cannot trust government to protect us. Any propaganda from their health departments should be examined closely for ties to lobbyists and more.
Protect endangered species from pesticides! 🦋 The pesticide industry is pushing secret legislation on #capitolhill that would dismantle Endangered Species Act (ESA) protections against deadly pesticides. A version of this hidden bill was obtained by #cfs. Toxic pesticides are one of the primary risks to #endangeredspecies. Under current law, the EPA is legally required to consult with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Marine Fisheries Service to minimize harm to endangered species from EPA-approved pesticides. That requirement is effective. 🦋 Why would Congress make this dangerous change to the law? In April, DowDupont (formerly Dow Chemical) asked EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt (#PollutingPruitt) to stop all efforts to fully assess the impacts of #chlorpyrifos, malathion, and diazinon, which have been shown to harm virtually all of America's approximately 1,800 protected species. And Pruitt has apparently capitulated - the federal government's efforts to protect endangered species from those three chemicals has been completely stalled. 🦋 If Pruitt won't protect our #children and #farmworkers from the overuse of highly poisonous insecticides, then he certainly can't be trusted to protect our endangered species from them. This new legislation would eviscerate meaningful protections for #fish, #wildlife, and #plants under the #endangeredspeciesact. Tell your Senators and Representative to oppose any legislative attempt to weaken ESA protections for species affected by #pesticides! 🦋 ACT NOW ➡️ cfs.center/dontweakenesa
Who knew that Neem could also be used as a pesticide? Repost @neempedia ・・・ Over 1 million pounds of #chlorpyrifos are used in California each year on a variety of fruit and vegetable crops.☠️It is no news that this toxic #insecticide harms the brain and is particularly harmful to pregnant women and children. Last month California decided to list the widely used insecticide as a developmental toxicant, along with other health-harming chemicals. Although this does not reduce the amount of chlorpyrifos in use or limit community exposure, it helps raise awareness to take this chemical off the market once and for all. You can help! How? By spreading awareness about viable, non-toxic alternatives like neem!

Join democratic senators that have seen a way, take action to #banchlorpyrifos ! How often does trump end a complaining tweet like "Sad.", as a one word sentence? #chlorpyrifos poisoning is sad! Yet EPA caved to chemical dependent agri-biz interests like #croplife international and wont #protectusall. #organophosphate has a role in the #autism spike and #adhd so we must move Congress to act, resist the dumbing down of america. Imagine the vulnerable situation of many migrant workers who get exposed to this wretched abomination. Trump has cast mexicans as rapists thugs before, so in context, making sure ppl don't get jacked up by poison would help placate those concerns so farm workers can have mental health preservation and consumers protected from this residue. Follow environmental working group for more info! keep dow's poison at bay. Where are the ahem, pro life republicans when kids need protected from corporate pollution? #s1624
