Kristof The pesticide, which belongs to a class of chemicals Developed by the Nazi's as a nerve Gas-Well it's now found in food and drinking water. Human and animal studies show that it damages the brain and reduces I.Q.s while causing tremors among children. It has also been linked to lung cancer and Parkinson’s disease in adult's. The colored parts of the image above, prepared by Columbia University scientists, indicate where a child’s brain is physically altered after exposure to this pesticide.
This chemical, chlorpyrifos, is hard to pronounce, so let’s just call it Dow Chemical Company’s Nerve Gas
Pesticide. Even if you haven’t heard of it, it may be inside you: One 2012 study found that it was in the umbilical
cord blood of 87 percent of newborn babies tested. And now the Trump administration is embracing it, overturning a planned ban that had been in the works for many years.
The Environmental Protection Agency actually banned Dow’s Nerve Gas Pesticide for most indoor r
esidential use 17 years ago so it’s no longer found in the Raid you spray at cockroaches (it’s very effective, which is why it’s so widely used; then again,
don’t suggest this to Dow, but sarin nerve gas might be even more effective!). The E.P.A. was preparing to ban it for agricultural and outdoor use this spring, but then the Trump Administration rejected the ban.That was a triumph for Dow, but the decision stirred outrage among public health experts. They noted that Dow had donated $1 million
for President Trump’s inauguration.
This lobby stuff has got to stop.
They are buying the Govt.
