Paraquat – A toxic weed killer used in the U.S.

According to EWG (Environmental Working Group) – “Paraquat is banned in more than 60 countries, but millions of pounds of paraquat are sprayed in the US every year.

Paraquat threatens the people who apply the chemical, those who work on farms, and others who live nearby.

Paraquat is primarily used to clear fields before farmers plant corn, soybeans, cotton, almonds, peanuts, wine grapes, and other crops.

Researchers found people who sprayed paraquat were more than twice as likely to develop Parkinson’s disease than those who applied other pesticides. Exposure to paraquat has also been associated with certain types of cancers and ingesting even tiny amounts of paraquat can be lethal.

Syngenta, the Swiss-based company owned by a Chinese state enterprise, makes paraquat and has long understood these risks, but spent decades hiding what they knew from the public and the EPA.

It’s possible to grow cotton, wine grapes, and other crops without spraying this killer herbicide. We will continue to push states, EPA, and Congress to take action to protect consumers and workers.”
