Trump's EPA is letting Big Ag poison our kids
Trump's EPA is letting Big Ag poison our kids

Instead of banning Dow's toxic nerve gas pesticide chlorpyrifos, which has been proven to harm children's developing brains, Trump has allowed this dangerous pesticide to continue to be used on our food.

This poison is so noxious that the EPA banned it inside your home almost 20 YEARS AGO. President Obama's administration moved to ban chlorpyrifos, full-stop. But then Trump and Scott Pruitt's EPA reversed course to stop the ban on chlorpyrifos – after Trump received a $1 million donation from Dow.

The EPA should be protecting people from toxic chemicals, not allowing mega-corporation polluters to profit from poisoning our children.
