    Consider this…

    Consider this quote from the recently released President’s Cancer Panel:

    “We have sprayed pesticides which are inherent poisons throughout our shared environment. They are now in amniotic fluid. They are in our blood. They are in our urine. They are in our exhaled breath. They are in our mother’s milk. What is the burden of cancer that we can attribute to this use of poisons throughout our agricultural system? We won’t really know that answer until we do another experiment, which is to take the poisons out of our food chain, embrace a different kind of agriculture, a healthier agriculture, and see what happens.”

    Now consider that the Environmental Working Group is being attacked by agribusiness, pesticide companies and chemical farming interests over the Environmental Working Group’s (EWG) influential “Shopper’s Guide To Pesticides In Produce,” a popular consumer tool, introduced more than a decade ago, that has helped drive expansion of organic produce sales at the expense conventionally grown, pesticide-contaminated fruits and vegetables.

    Together, we can protect the health of our families from the chemical interests. Learn how you can protect those that you love at www.ewg.org
