Internal company documents that have come to light due to litigation concerning paraquat’s link to Parkinson’s disease detail decades of resistance to making a safer version of paraquat, a potent herbicide, that has killed tens of thousands of people around the world since hitting the market in the 1960s. This underscores the urgent need to ban paraquat and other dangerous herbicides that pose a threat to human health.
Write to Congress and tell your elected officials to support legislation to protect Americans from paraquat and other dangerous pesticides.
Please co-sponsor HR 7940, The Protect America's Children from Toxic Pesticides Act
