Trump EPA Denounced for 'Disgusting' Decision on Atrazine, Herbicide Tied to Birth Defects

Yes he did this on Friday. They are working overtime killing Americans.

One critic warned that "this decision imperils the health of our children and the safety of drinking water supplies across much of the nation."

The Trump administration alarmed environmental and public health advocates on Friday with the Environmental Protection Agency's decision to reauthorize the use of atrazine, an herbicide common in the United States but banned or being phased out in dozens of countries due to concerns about risks such as birth defects and cancer.

"Use of this extremely dangerous pesticide should be banned, not expanded," declared Nathan Donley, a senior scientist at the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD). "This disgusting decision directly endangers the health of millions of Americans."

"This decision imperils the health of our children and the safety of drinking water supplies across much of the nation," Donley added. "No one will be left untouched by the bad decision the EPA just made."

A little known fact is that atrazine is one of the many dangerous pesticides allowed on national wildlife refuges places that are supposed to protect endangered wildlife and plants. It's also the most commonly detected pesticide in tap water. https://t.co/kH9pZsfMuM
