Protecting kids from pesticides begins with us
It’s a fact. Kids today are sicker than they were a generation ago, and pesticides are a part of the reason why.
From childhood cancers to birth defects and asthma, a wide range of childhood diseases and disorders are on the rise, and public health experts tell us we have a “silent pandemic” of learning disabilities and disorders. It’s time we name and tackle this problem by building a national conversation from the ground up.
Pledge to be a kids' health conversation starter in your community! Write letters to your local paper, activate people in your network — whatever your starting point, we have created some tools to help.
After signing the pledge, you’ll find a 2-page discussion guide with facts and figures from our latest report outlining the state of the science on pesticides and children’s health, A Generation in Jeopardy.
