Tell EPA Administrator Pruitt: Don’t ignore the science on chlorpyrifos

We do not like to ingest pesticides -- we do not like it in our food. It is especially hard when you don't know what you are eating because food is not labeled or not labeled appropriately to educate consumers. Read up and make your own decision. This is on the EPA Website.

"Chlorpyrifos can cause cholinesterase inhibition in humans at high enough doses; that is, it can overstimulate the nervous system causing nausea, dizziness, confusion, and at very high exposures (e.g., accidents or major spills), respiratory paralysis and death."
