The EPA recently declared that Monsanto’s cancer-linked weedkiller, glyphosate, is safe. But now the agency has asked the public to weigh in.
I’ll make this quick, friend. Here are three numbers that should alarm you:
- 250 million pounds. More than 250 million pounds of Monsanto’s cancer-linked pesticide dumped on American farmland each year.
- $190 million. Monsanto has been ordered to pay more than $190 million in damages in court cases linking glyphosate to cancer.
12 days. We have just 12 days to convince the EPA to take action on glyphosate
Help EWG reach 100,000 signatures by using the form below to add your name to EWG’s petition calling on the EPA to protect Americans from cancer-linked glyphosate!
The World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer declared glyphosate a probable human carcinogen in 2015. Since then, local communities and countries across the globe have begun to take action to protect people from glyphosate. But not the EPA.
Recently released court documents have exposed Monsanto’s attempts to collude with the EPA to cover up glyphosate’s cancer-linked risks. It’s time to force the EPA to face the truth and take action to protect Americans from glyphosate.
We need 100,000 signatures by September 3 if we’re going to get the EPA to start standing up for public health instead of pesticide industry profits.
Monsanto’s glyphosate is NOT safe!
This cancer-linked chemical shouldn’t be anywhere near our food, parks or schools. I urge you to listen to independent research – not Monsanto’s propaganda – and take action to protect Americans from glyphosate’s carcinogenic risks.
