One of the most widely used agrochemicals, dicamba, is likely ruining crops nationwide. 17 states are investigating 1,400+ complaints of dicamba, across 2.5 million acres. What is this dangerous synthetic chemical doing to our food supply and why is it being used at all? Read the latest post at www.NEEM.world to learn more. Link in bio.⚠️‼️
On this #farmworkerappreciationday, celebrate all of the farmworkers that risk their lives when exposed to dangerous, synthetic agrochemicals to pick the food on your table. Millions of farmers worldwide have been exposed to these synthetic agrochemicals; causing many medical problems, like cancer! How will you celebrate farmworkers today? Support sustainable, organic methods in agriculture, like choosing food produced with neem. Learn more about this incredible resource at www.NEEM.world. 🌿🌿
@gmofreeusa_official - "Tell your Senators to #banchlorpyrifos : EPA Chief Scott Pruitt wants to protect Dow’s profits over human health. Despite the science showing that Dow's insecticide, chlorpyrifos, is extremely harmful to human health, particularly to children, at levels found on conventional food, Pruitt went against EPA scientists' recommendations to ban this dangerous pesticide. Why? Dow donated a million dollars to Trump and Dow's CEO is one of Trump's advisers. How convenient. Stop the cronyism and corruption! A new bill in the Senate, called Protect Children, Farmers and Farmworkers from Nerve Agent Pesticides Act of 2017 (S1624), was introduced by Tom Udall of New Mexico and has seven other co-sponsors, including California senator Kamala Harris. Call and email your Senators and tell them to BAN CHLORPYRIFOS and co-sponsor Bill S1624."

A first-of-its-kind bill is calling for the ban of chlorpyrifos, one of the most toxic and highly used synthetic pesticides in the world! This is after the EPA reversed regulation for its use in public spaces, schools, and parks. The Protect Children, Farmers & Farmworkers from Nerve Agent Pesticides Act is a step in the right direction for a safe, sustainable and environmentally responsible world!

Ready to lobby U.S. senators to pressure them to vote yes on banning #chlorpyrifos, dangerous pesticides. Farmwoker lives matter! #washingtondc #notafraid #browngirlpower #farmworker
Talking about the adverse effects on neurological development of infants and children exposed to dangerous pesticides.  #chlorpyrifos #contamination #endpesticides #farmworkerrights #foodjustice #environmenaljustice #children
Earlier this week, I joined Californians For Pesticide Reform to submit 167,000 signatures to the CA Department of Pesticide Regulation asking them to ban the cancer causing pesticide #chlorpyrifos. I also meet with The offices of Senator Fuller, Lara, Vidak, and assemblymen Salas and Fong. This was the pesticide US EPA scientists were in agreement should be banned, but President Trump's administration refused to do so. If Trump won't protect our health, I will gladly join the fight to do so. #stayloud #mayorgurrola #cpr 📷: Joan Cusick Photography
Cilantro, sweet bell peppers, nectarines and peaches - what do they all have in common? 🌱🍑🌶🍒🥒 If they are conventionally grown, it may be chlorpyrifos residue. • Chlorpyrifos is an organophosphate pesticide (i.e. neurotoxin) that was in the news a few months back when the EPA denied a petition to ban its use in agriculture. This was surprising, because just last year the EPA concluded that the expected residues of chlorpyrifos on food crops exceeded current safety standards. • What to learn which fruits and veggies most frequently test positive for chlorpyrifos? How about which produce has the highest level of chlorpyrifos residue? And how do the US, Canada and Europe compare in what is considered a safe residue level on foods? • Read more #ontheblog Clickable #linkinprofile👆 • • • #chlorpyrifos #chlorpyrifosisbad #pesticides #pesticidefreefood #organic #eatorganic #eatclean #cilantro #peaches #nectarine #bellpeppers #foodismedicine #knoweledgeispower #knowwhatyoureeating #eatwisely #eatgood #eatwell

Judah is on his way to Sacramento to ask the department of pesticide regulation to ban #chlorpyrifos! This neurotoxic poisons farm workers and harms children's brains just like his.
@Regrann from @agschneiderman -  Job Number One for the EPA should be protecting Americans' wellbeing. Under Scott Pruitt, the agency is allowing chlorpyrifos -- a toxic pesticide that has been shown to harm children's neurological development -- to be used on our food. I'm leading a coalition of 6 AGs taking legal action to protect New Yorkers, kids, and pregnant mothers across the country.  When the Trump administration refuses to follow the law, attorneys general stand ready to step up and fight back. #chlorpyrifos #epa - #regrann

#hemp is how much safer than #ribfest ? Much much safer! Sustainable Agriculturalists Linking Arms DAILY, SALAD (small group of friends) rigorously called out eco hazards to protect us all. Plus I checked Trump on #chlorpyrifos. Do not condone abusing the pigs for these foul deadzone perpetuating, antibiotic wasting events. Sorry to report bad news but this shit unreal atrocious.  Made nice with soo many people except for a few ribbers who thought fish pooping in the water is the same as the trapped pigs. One even had a rare sentiment: worry about cows going extinct if we stop breeding them. Yep pure geniuses thanks for polluting my city with #cafogarbage. Pardon me but Fuck the injustice the pork for protein gets way overdone in these hellish festivals, which are dragging on for 3 and 4 days (longer periods than last year despite the binding accord ohio signed to reduce the manure fertilizer application to fields) while full #hemp rights are withheld from Americans, the benefits are mired by stigma. Are you ready for round up herbicide induced non Hodgkin lymphoma ? If not go vegan freegan or otherwise boycott monsanto cargill and factory farm model with tips from food and water watch, organic consumers Association, environmental working group, the center for food safety, vote hemp, Humane Society center for Science in the public interest, and environment America
"Oregon Department of Agriculture's actions  come  following an investigation of  the  product and laboratory analysis that  found the presence of  the  pesticide  active  ingredients  #permethrin , #bifenthrin , #cypermethrin , #cyfluthrin, and #chlorpyrifos, none  of  which  are  listed on either product  label"* Remember to dispose of #azatrol properly. This should not be thrown away in your garbage can just cuz it says it's " #omrilisted " PLEASE keep pesticides and insecticides chemical or organic out of our landfills. (I had to dig into an old box to find this.the warning was issued for Azatrol EC* and not Azatrol Hydro.) #azatrolscam #ipm #omri #oregoncannabis #oda  #insectgrowthregulator #igr #repellant #pesticidefree #pesticideawareness #mites #antifeedant #properdisposal #insecticide  #hazardouswaste #hazardouswastedisposal
In a study from the University of Otago in New Zealand, scientists looked at the effects of chlorpyrifos on bees. They found traces of the synthetic pesticide in hives even in non-sprayed areas, since chlorpyrifos travels great distances in the air, water, and soil. When they examined the effects of the regulated “safe" level on bees, they found that the bees were less responsive to stimulus. The bees had decreased odor-learning as well as odor-responding abilities. The legal amount of chlorpyrifos is hundreds of times higher than recommended levels - less than 50 picograms. Are you protecting the bees and our food supply by using and promoting sustainable resources, like neem? 🐝🐝🌿🌱
In an extremely dangerous reversal of the #obama administration, #scottpruitt, the climate-denying, anti-science head of #environmentalprotectionagency, has ignored his own agency's recommendations to ban #chlorpyrifos, the toxic #agricultural #pesticide known to damage the #nervoussystem of #infants and #children. . Chlorpyrifos is so toxic that it's been #banned for home use since 2000, yet #farmworkers, many of whom are #immigrants, and others who live near #farms, including small children, are exposed to this #hazardous #neurotoxin on a daily basis. . The petition to #california Gov. #jerrybrown reads: "Chlorpyrifos, the toxic insecticide widely used on California farms, is a massive threat to farmworkers and known to damage the nervous systems and brains of infants and children. Take immediate action to protect #californians in the face of #donaldtrump’s anti-science, anti-immigrant policies and #ban this #toxic #chemical." . Add your name: https://act.credoaction.com/sign/ca_chlorpyrifos?t=3&akid=23873.2688285.sHTme8 . If any other state has a petition going, sign it. If not, go to  #credoaction and start one to send to your governor.
