Ban Glyphosate Herbicides

Moms Across America announces a nationwide campaign to ban glyphosate herbicides in all fifty of the United States. 

Glyphosate herbicides or Monsanto'sRoundUp weed killer, the most widely used herbicide in history, has been proven to cause serious harm to life. Glyphosate has contaminated our planet and is now found in our children's urine, mother's milk, our bloodstreams, and our food, beverages, and water. In 2015 the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) of the World Health Organization found that glyphosate “is a probable human carcinogen.”

In July of 2017, the California State Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) added glyphosate to its Prop 65 list of known carcinogens. And if you hadn’t heard, just yesterday, Monsanto decided to sue our state over it.

Global studies show that we are routinely exposed to dangerous levels of glyphosate. Millions of citizens in all fifty states come in contact with glyphosate daily. The American Academy of Pediatrics has stated that our children are the most vulnerable to pesticides, we need to take action to protect the future of our state.

If you live in California Call Jerry Brown: (916) 445-2841 governor@governor.ca.gov
If you live outside California, please get the information to call your governor here.
Sign the petition here.  

Thanks!!
