Eliminate Toxic Lawn Pesticide Use in Montgomery County
Safe Grow Montgomery has launched a campaign to ban the use of toxic pesticides on lawns in Montgomery County. Serious human health risks from lawn pesticide exposure include cancers, asthma, reproductive and hormone problems, neurological effects including learning disabilities, and Parkinson's Disease. Acute exposure can cause flu like symptoms, headaches, fatigue, slow pulse, nausea, diarrhea and depression. Pregnant women, infants and children, the aged, and the chronically ill are particularly vulnerable.
Sign their petition to ban these pesticides.
