In a potential blow to reproductive health, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is considering approving a highly toxic chemical, chlormequat chloride, for use on crops like oats, wheat, and barley. Studies have found that even low exposure to chlormequat chloride causes potential reproductive harm in test animals. What’s worse, even with this data, the EPA could approve it without further studies to determine its health impacts in infants and young children.
If we act fast, we can protect our cereal, bread, and pasta from being further contaminated and stop the EPA from approving additional applications of this poison. Even if you follow a low-carb diet, this chemical has the potential to harm you and the US population at large. Dr. Weston A. Price, one of the first to raise the alarm about the dangers of processed flour, would be on the front lines strongly discouraging another pesticide being added to our grains!
EPA has received almost 11,000 public comments already, and we’re encouraging you to add your comment NOW! The comment period ends Tuesday, July 25! Click HERE to post your comment before time runs out! Here’s some text you can use outright or adapt with your personal message:
I am concerned with the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposal to approve new uses of the pesticide chlormequat chloride on cereal crops like oats, wheat, and barley. I urge you to reject its further use until more research is available to determine its risk to wildlife, people and planet!
While EPA found that chlormequat chloride exposure threatens mammals, birds, and numerous plant species – they could potentially move ahead anyway. Unless you step up and join us today!
