Tell the EPA to End the Use of Methyl Iodide
Environmental groups have been working hard the last five years to stop the use of cancer-causing methyl iodide, called by scientists "one of the most toxic chemicals on earth." Now, that work is beginning to pay off.
The EPA is reconsidering its decision on methyl iodide, despite intense pressure from Arysta -- the largest private pesticide company in the world -- to keep it on the market. On March 17, the agency opened public comment on a petition to end all uses of this pesticide, nationwide. The science is clear: This pesticide is too toxic to be used safely.
