Last week in Peru 90 people were poisoned and at least three children died from donated food contaminated with pesticides. A horrifying example of the on-the-ground consequences of broken policy.
The consequences of our broken policies are tragically unfair, and offer another blatant reminder: the chemicals that cause irrevocable disease and harm to our health and ecosystems must be pulled off the market. Period. At the same time we have to find the will to invest in safe and common sense alternatives, and the courage to stop propping up the chemical industry‘s solutions.
