Protect our Babies, Bees, Pets, Farmworkers, and Future Generations!

Glyphosate herbicides have been shown to harm babies, pets, farmworkers, and future generations. A study released April 6, 2021, in the Journal of Applied Ecology reveals that Roundup, the most widely used herbicide worldwide and the focus of recent lawsuits regarding non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, is not just a weedkiller but a bee killer as well. We cannot survive without pollinators.

The results showed that 94% died when exposed to Roundup® Ready‐To‐Use®, and 96% died when exposed to Roundup® No Glyphosate. The scientists point out that their results show that the co-formulants in the product are more toxic to bees than the glyphosate formulation. The EPA currently only requires extensive safety testing on one declared “active” ingredient in a pesticide or herbicide (in this case, the manufacturers chose the least acutely toxic - glyphosate). This policy is inadequate for regulating the safety of the co-formulants (many petroleum-based chemicals) in the full formulation that is clearly “active” and shown to be toxic. 

Moms Across America asks you to contact the Head of the EPA and the Director of the Pesticide Re-Evaluation Division and demand that they revoke the glyphosate license. We need them to change their policy and require full formulation safety testing of glyphosate-based herbicides and all agrochemicals. Accurate EPA analysis for approval would require long-term, independent studies on the full formulations of all pesticides and herbicide products with blood analysis on both genders of adults and larvae or fetuses for toxicity and harm to endocrine systems.  

Human and animal health is in a crisis.  Farmworkers, our soil, and bees are experiencing the worst impact. Every third bite of food, humans depends on pollinators. Around the world, the movement to adopt organic regenerative farming practices is increasing and demonstrating that farming without the use of harmful agrochemicals is productive, increases water retention, raises organic matter and nutrients in the soil, decreases erosion, and reduces plant pests naturally.

The EPA must take immediate action to revoke the license of glyphosate-based herbicides* and ensure safety for all pollinators, insects, wildlife, and human life on earth. The science shows that we cannot afford to allow the use of Roundup to continue. Nor can we settle for regulatory policies that do not ensure our safety and survival.
