The herbicide atrazine is commonly used by crop growers in the United States to prevent weeds from taking over large fields of crops. However atrazine has been linked to birth defects, reproductive issues, and even cancer. Tell the EPA to adapt new herbicidal chemicals that do not put the health of humans or animals in danger.

Dear EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson:

Atrazine is no longer an acceptable form of destroying unwanted weeds, as it is known to cause serious health problems for both humans and animals. Once sprayed onto crops, the toxic chemical is transported through the air and through our drinking water.

Atrazine has been linked to several serious health defects, including reproductive problems, low birth weights, and the proliferation of cancerous cells.

A chemical as dangerous as this should not be allowed near the food we eat or the water we drink. Period. Please support efforts to find a non-toxic alternative to atrazine.

Thank you for your time.
