Tell the EPA: Ban Roundup unless and until it is proven safe

Glyphosate is the most widely used agricultural chemical in the world, and exposure is almost impossible to avoid. As long as significant doubt remains as to whether glyphosate is completely safe, we should not be spraying this chemical on food, around our homes, and near the places where our children learn and play.

The chemical's manufacturers have not been transparent about their product's potential health effects. In 2017, Monsanto was caught ghost-writing studies for "independent scientists" to show that glyphosate, the main ingredient, is safe. Meanwhile, scientists at the World Health Organization call glyphosate a "probable carcinogen."

I strongly urge you to ban the sale of Roundup unless and until it is proven safe by independent research.
