New EPA Regulations Harm Animals and Us

Glyphosate is a broad-spectrum herbicide, a poison that can cause cancer in animals, humans and non-humans alike. Please join IDA, Natural News, and Health Ranger in objecting to new EPA regulations which allow increased glyphosate contamination of food crops, edible oils, and waterways. Take action today – public comments are due by July 1!

These new regulations permit glyphosate concentrations that are thousands of times higher than the levels which can cause cancer. For example: they allow animal feed and hay to contain up to 100 ppm glyphosate, over one million times the concentration that can cause cancer. The regulations allow oilseed crops to contain up to 40 ppm glyphosate, over 100,000 times the concentration that can cause cancer. They raise the allowable glyphosate contamination level of root crops from 200 ppb to 6000 ppb. They also allow the contamination of fruits to be from 200 ppb to 500 ppb.

Object to the poisoning of us, the animals we work to protect, and our environment! Please send your comments to the EPA today by clicking the “comment now” button at the top right corner of this page.
