Groups Demand Immediate Halt to Food Uses of Fluoride-Based Pesticide
Dear POWA (Protect Our Water Alliance) Petition Signers, DOW Chemical has been lobbying the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to allow it to spray a new fluoride-based pesticide (sulfuryl fluoride) on hundreds of foods prepared in the US.
If DOW gets its way, sulfuryl fluoride will become a major new source of fluoride, making it even more difficult for consumers to avoid fluoride in their daily lives.
What's worse, the levels of fluoride allowed to be sprayed on food will be shockingly high: 70 ppm for processed foods, 130 ppm for wheat products, and 900 ppm for dried eggs!
To voice your concerns about the use of sulfuryl fluoride on food, please take a few seconds to sign the personalizable ONLINE LETTER to EPA Administrator Stephen Johnson, produced by Fluoride Action Network (FAN) at: http://actionstudio.org/?go=2367
If you wish to submit letters on your own, you can find instructions at the Organic Consumers Association (OCA) link: http://tinyurl.com/s6zv2
