I'm on the list-serve for MomsRising, and got an alarming email today:
"6 months ago, a dangerous ingredient got added to the production chain of this previously nutritious and delicious warm weather snack: Methyl iodide.
Methyl iodide is a cancer causing chemical that was approved for use in California agriculture. Already banned in New York and Washington, this chemical is linked to cancer, thyroid toxicity, and miscarriages. It’s time to take methyl iodide out of CA farms, before any more of this dangerous chemical is used. Tell Governor Brown that we want safer strawberries for our families!"
Please take a moment and go here to tell the California Governor that we want safer produce!
