Tell the EPA to Regulate Glyphosate!

Tell the EPA to Regulate Glyphosate!

Overview
Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto\'s Roundup herbicide, is a toxic chemical that is becoming virtually ubiquitous in the modern world. Exposure to this chemical is associated with a number of health concerns, including cancer. A number of alarming reports also suggest that the chemical accumulates in the body, which can be of concern to those whose bodies cannot detoxify properly. Human exposure to glyphosate has increased by 500% since the introduction of genetically modified crops. Glyphosate is traditionally sprayed on genetically modified soy, corn, canola, sorghum, alfalfa, sugar beets, and cotton but it is also sprayed--sometimes right before harvest--on a substantial portion of wheat and oats grown in the US. Glyphosate is also sprayed on a wide variety of non-GMO crops such as almonds, rice, cherries, avocados, and apples. Glyphosate has been linked to the mysterious epidemics of kidney disease killing sugar cane workers in Sri Lanka and elsewhere. This doesn\'t even take into account the damage being wrought on human health by the pesticides that are dumped on our crops--which is made possible by GMO technology. Due to the myriad health concerns that have been recognized by world bodies such as the World Health Organization, and how widespread the use of this chemical is, it is time to ban glyphosate.

    • I am from Canada and wasn't able to select my country from the drop down list, so I entered United States and North Dakota (a neighbouring state). The postal code was my own authentic one, so why was the drop down list not listing Canada? Could you please fix this so we can support the great petitions on your site? Thank you.

    • The dangers of glyphosate are well known in the scientific community as well as Monsanto. Please stop this atrocity for future generations.

    • We need the bees, this pesticide is killing them. Its been proven that the bee population is decreasing rapidly because of this. Glycphate is an insecticide, bees are insects.

    • I cannot believe the corruption that must be present for an organization that is supposed to be protecting our health that allows glyphosate on our crops. I diligently check labels and only buy non gmo or organic, but many people do not do this due to cost and lack of knowledge. Also, the organic and non gmo crops get contaminated anyway. Please do the right thing and ban glyphosate.
"It's the action, not the fruit of the action, that's important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there will be any fruit. But that doesn't mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result."
- Mahatma Gandhi
