The science is clear. Chlorpyrifos is dangerous.
Exposure to low levels of the pesticide in early life can lead to increased risk of learning disabilities, including reductions in IQ, developmental delay, and behavioral problems, such as ADHD. Yet the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is refusing to move forward with its previously proposed chlorpyrifos ban. We are standing up for children’s health by taking the Trump administration to court and fighting for policies that cut use of this toxic pesticide in California and on apples, berries, citrus, and other fruit loved by kids.
