The FDA just released some startling findings about our food: Nearly 60% of U.S. food samples have traces of pesticide residue, including ones that have been shown to be harmful to our health. This means that Americans of all ages are being exposed to all kinds of chemicals and may suffer the health consequences as a result.
We should be confident that the food we’re buying is safe, and PIRG is addressing this problem by calling for bans on the worst toxic pesticides. But we can’t do it without support from members like you. Donate today.
