PLEASE BAN GLYPHOSATE IN CALIFORNIA

INTRODUCTION

        Glyphosate herbicides or Monsanto’s RoundUp weed killer, the most widely used herbicide in history, has recently been proven to cause serious harm to life. Glyphosate has contaminated our planet and is now found in our children’s urine, mother’s milk, our bloodstreams, and our food and water.

             In 2015 the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) of the World Health Organization found that glyphosate “is a probable human carcinogen”. In July 2017 the California State Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) added glyphosate to its prop 65 lists of known carcinogens. 

PEOPLE WANTING A GLYPHOSATE BAN

             In October of 2017 after over 1 million Europeans requested a ban, 72% of the Members of the European Parliament voted to BAN glyphosate and EU Member states have refused to renew the license. Malta, Sri Lanka, The Netherlands, and Argentina have banned glyphosate. Many school districts and cities in the United States have already discontinued the use of glyphosate.

CARCINOGENIC

    Glyphosate herbicides have also been found to be linked to various cancers specifically lymphoma, are endocrine disrupters, neurotoxicity, and a cause of liver disease. Global studies show that we are routinely exposed to dangerous levels of glyphosate. Millions of citizens in California come in contact with glyphosate daily.  The American Academy of Pediatrics has stated that our children are the most vulnerable to pesticides, we need to take action to protect the future of our state. Glyphosate has also been linked to chromosomal damage and genetic damage.

SUING MONSANTO

Over 100 Americans are currently suing Monsanto, the manufacturer of glyphosate herbicides, for corruption, coverups, and collusion with the EPA concerning the carcinogenic effects of glyphosate.

           Some organizations and institutions you can join to ban glyphosate, include:

           Moms Across America, Organic Consumers Association, Institute for Responsible Technology, and Thinking Moms Revolution. There are thousands of others as well, so consider joining or supporting those organizations.
