It’s no secret that, compared to many parts of Europe, the United States is seriously lacking when it comes to protecting people from encountering harmful chemicals on a daily basis. For example, the synthetic chemical known as brominated vegetable oil (BVO) continues to show up in citrusy soft drinks such as Mountain Dew, but in Europe it’s banned. Sure, it’s been known linked to cardiac arrhythmias, disrupting the endocrine system and causing rashes, but the FDA hasn’t banned it here. Instead, it’s labeled as an “interim food additive” which indicates that there food may contain questionable substances.(1)
Let’s not forget that arsenic-laced chicken, breads containing potassium bromate, BHA (butylated hydroxyanisole) and BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene) infiltrate many of our foods and products. But in Europe and many other countries, they’re banned because of the health hazards they pose.(1)
Of course, most health-minded individuals are aware that glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup, is shrouded in controversy. Opponents are aware of its horrific problems, while supporters maintain that it’s perfectly safe. However, Europe will have nothing to do with a brushing-under-the-carpet mentality; the latest ban in Europe involves glyphosate, with Swiss supermarket giants Coop and Migros saying that they are no longer going to sell products that contain the chemical. Their announcement is said to be propelled mostly by the World Health Organization’s report stating that glyphosate is a probable human carcinogen. The two Swiss stores are planning to look into non-toxic weed-killers that don’t jeopardize human health.(2)
Yes, it’s that simple. Yet, here in the United States, the powers that be continue to wear blinders, holding tight to loopholes and lies until, like the 1984 character Winston, they actually believe in the madness themselves. Bad is good, right is wrong. Our stores continue to sell Roundup, while places overseas take prompt action to keep it off shelves. Something is seriously wrong with this picture, and it’s time we do more to take control of our health.
Why, for example, aren’t mega stores such as Home Depot and Lowe’s following suit? Removing Roundup from their stores and looking into alternative products would convey to the public just how dedicated they are to their consumers’ health. Such an effort would act as a model, hopefully propelling other stores to follow suit and perhaps help put more anti-glyphosate measures in place.
You can play a role in this instrumental cause by signing a petition that urges these stores to follow in the footsteps of Coop and Migros. A petition on Change.org is urging people to take a stand against Home Depot and Lowe’s, demanding that they remove Roundup from their shelves. Petitions for both stores home in on the WHO report, noting that this cancer-causing product is sprayed not only on the foods we eat, but in the areas where children play. It’s just about everywhere, and for the sake of our health, it must go. Click here to sign the Home Depot Roundup petition and here for the Lowe’s petition.(3,4)
Here are details from the Home Depot petition; the one for Lowe’s is worded similarly:
Home Depot should discontinue carrying and selling products containing glyphosate. Doing so would show that they care more about the public’s health and the communities that support them than they do about selling this product that has been linked to cancer and other health issues. Conversely, if Home Depot were to ignore this petition and continue to sell glyphosate-containing products, it would show their customers and the communities who support their business that they value the sales of this product more than they value the health of you or your children.(3)
Please take just a few minutes to read and sign these petitions. Every signature makes a difference. Hopefully, the United States can do as much as Europe has done so that harmful chemicals are banned, not embraced.
