EPA Report on Atrazine – DANGER – Endocrine Disruptor, Major Toxicity for Unborn Children

atrazineHerbicides (plant killers):
 #1- Glyphosate (Roundup)
 #2 – Atrazine

There are over 76 million pounds of Atrazine applied annually in US. It has been banned in Europe since 2003. Atrazine is the most common pesticide found in ground and surface water. Around 90% of the Atrazine applied in the US is used on genetically modified corn production. Read more… 

Atrazine has estrogen like activity. It has been shown to cause endocrine disruption in wildlife, and increased risk of reproductive cancers in humans. Read more…

This pesticide has the ability to alter the expression of sex hormones with estrogen effects shutting off the testosterone driven sexual differentiation needed to make a male. This study in frogs illustrates this point. Read more…

Atrazine is known to affect brain development and the dopamine system. Read more…

The importance of avoiding pesticides (we just must eat organic) cannot be emphasized enough.  The search for the cause of autism, ADHD, anxiety, depression, developmental challenges, cancer, and virtually all health problems that we face leads right back to toxins with pesticides and herbicides the big players in this toxic picture.

Atrazine has been shown to cause complete chemical castration of the male African clawed frogs. Read the study here…

 A direct correlation between Atrazine in ground water (highest in the summer months) and cancer rates (highest in the summer) makes this clearly a toxin to avoid.  You cannot avoid this if you eat the SAD (Standard American Diet). 

There may be a possible association between Atrazine use in summer months and birth defects for patients conceived during those months when the levels of Atrazine in the surface water are higher. Read more…

Drink filtered water, eat organic and stay vigilant.  Our government has had this information for a decade now but the conflict of interest with big business seems to make them powerless to protect the American people.  We, the people, and only the people have the power to change this by rejecting all products that come from this industry.  When we refuse to eat at restaurants unless they are organic, when we refuse to buy food unless it is organic, when our money rewards those who shun these toxins- then and only then will this change.
