Why this petition matters

Started by Anne Temple

Did you know that one of the most widely-used herbicides in history, sprayed on our food crops, streets, playgrounds, and parks, has been proven to cause serious harm to our health?

I’m concerned about my children’s health and safety, and Monsanto’s Glyphosate  weed killer (Roundup) is putting all of ours at risk.

Join our campaign asking Governor John Kasich to ban the use of Glyphosate in Ohio.

In fact, Glyphosate is considered a carcinogen by the WHO and even the California State Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment. Glyphosate herbicides have also been found to be linked to various cancers specifically lymphoma, are endocrine disruptors, neurotoxic, and a cause of liver disease. Yet this dangerous chemical is so pervasive that glyphosate is now found in our children's urine, mother's milk, our bloodstreams, and our food, beverages, water and more.

There is a global movement taking place to ban this toxic chemical, and we’re asking Ohio to lead the way for the U.S.

Other countries have begun to take action to protect their health, and the health of their children. Sri Lanka, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman and El Salvador have banned glyphosate. France is phasing out the use of glyphosate herbicides in agriculture over the next 5 years completely. In Europe, after 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.
