Tell the EPA to Test the WHOLE Pesticide Formula!

Professor Gilles-Eric Séralini has now found that other, supposedly “inert,” ingredients associated with Roundup are even more dangerous than its primary toxin, glyphosate. But the EPA requires that only the active ingredient be studied for medium- and long-term toxicity. Companies are not required to list inert ingredients on most pesticide labels.

Companies say that they add ingredients to pesticides other than the active ingredient in order to make the product easier to spray, more readily stick to plants, store longer, and less likely to wash off in rain. These additives can make up as much as 95 percent of a pesticide. And research has found that eight out of nine pesticides tested were up to 1,000 times more toxic to human cells than just the active ingredient.

The authors of the study conclude that the distinction by regulators at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) between active ingredients and “declared inert” compounds is “a regulatory assumption with no toxicological basis.”

Please ask the EPA to start testing entire formulations of pesticides, rather than just “active” ingredients.
