While atrazine is coming to the forefront why is a more ubiquitous poison being hidden by EPA and DEQ?
Hayes labels atrazine an "endocrine disruptor"--a novel, widely-circulated notion that exposure to certain chemicals can radically alter sexual development.
Becoming emasculated and impotent isn't a pretty fate for a male frog, but thanks to a pesticide called atrazine, it could be a common one.
Recent media events by agenda-driven organizations such as the Natural Resources Defense Council, Land Stewardship Project and Pesticide Action Network North America suggest a coordinated campaign to call atrazine's safety into question and politicize what should be a scientific process.
The Huffington Post Investigative Fund discovered that the EPA has been collecting data that shows people are drinking water laced with high levels of a weed killer known as atrazine but did not publish the data.
Just, that the NYTimes has not put 'atrazine' in the news until today, does NOT mean there were NOT many many people who knew and said so it is a killing 'health concern' and have NOT been working to spread the word and stop it.
Such innovations such as atrazine, an herbicide effective in controlling yield-robbing weeds yet is gentle enough to be used on green shoots, ushered in the no-plow revolution, which reduced soil erosion and the use of carbon belching plows.
Take weedkillers such as atrazine and 2,4-D, or nitrotoluenes such as TNT.
Pesticides such as atrazine are studied more rigorously than industrial chemicals, and the weedkiller has been on the market since the late 1950s.
