Somebody has been testing pesticides to make sure that when used properly they aren't harmful to humans or animals, right? Well, this glass is half full: the Environmental Protection Agency is about to start testing pesticides to determine if they disrupt the endocrine system.
I hate to be one of those people who reads dark intentions between the lines, but you've got to love how CropLife America had petitioned to have the changes made to the Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program "in an effort to reduce the costs and time requirements associated with the new testing regime." Meaning, I'm sure, that they are afraid that they'll have some bad press when the harmful effects of their products are brought to light.
Sorry for all the boring political posts this week! I promise I'll get back to posting happy photos of the yard this weekend.
