dumbed-down by DOW! Ban Organophosphate nerve-agent pesticide Chlorpyrifos!

Since EPA Chief Scott Pruitt (ahem, #PolluterPruitt) rescinded the ban on Chlorpyrifos (pronounced Klor-Peer-a-foss), a steady flow of ALARM BELLS have flowed into my inbox indicating this pesticide is the most potent hazard to cognitive functions in the food supply. MAINSTREAM Environmental Groups: Environmental Working Group, Center for Science in Public Interest, Earth Justice and many more are flabbergasted and exasperated by EPA malfeasance.

Decades of data on tens of thousands of poisonings were cast aside to serve the profits of Dow Chemical. So ask yourself, can we trust Trump's bureaucrats to come thru on ROI for the 1.5 Billion Congress authorized for Brain Frontier research in the 21st Century Cures act? yahhh right! In no uncertain terms, this betrayal of farm communities and produce consumers is driving Autism & ADHD diagnosis rates.

April being Autism Awareness Month, Earth Month, and Minority health Month, I took the initiative to FINISH the most thorough article on the Chlorpyrifos saga, Intercept's piece "Poison Fruit" published Jan 17 2017. Overcoming my own ADD, it's now transferred over to my channel, like a book-on tape. I hope this helps, so instead of staring at the screen for god-knows how long, you can listen to me for 70min (while you workout, to dishes, drive etc!). Enjoy, knowledge is power!!

Need some Dirt on Dow in just a few minutes?

Here's a selection of staggering facts uncovered by Pulitzer-worthy reporter, Sharon Lerner, sure to instill your impatience for organic transitions, food safety, and farm worker justice!

"According to the EPA report, “Chlorpyrifos Revised Human Health Risk Assessment", 1- and 2-year-old children risk exposures from food alone that are 14,000 percent above the level the agency now thinks is safe."
