EPA Requires Tests on Suspected Endocrine Disruptors in Pesticides

Organic and non-toxic advocates are hopeful that the EPA will begin to take rapid steps to reduce Endocrine Disruptors in Pesticides

Find green business solutions
For the first time, the Environmental Protections Agency is requiring pesticide manufacturers to test a number of widely used chemicals to determine whether or not they disrupt the endocrine system.

The EPA's mandatory review was set into motion in the late 1990s with the passage of the Food Quality Protection Act, but it has taken nearly a decade for the agency to take action.

Although spokespeople for the pesticide industry claim they are not worried about the results, scientists like Dr. Tyrone Hayes of UC Berkeley have already discovered that exposure to small amounts of common pesticides can cause sex changes in frogs.

Now that the process is underway, 67 commonly used chemicals in pesticides will be tested over the next two years, and it will take approximately one year to assess the data and draw up recommendations.
