Minneapolis Citizens for Eliminating Pesticides in Our Public Parks

Reason for signing

  • Use of pesticides creates dead zones in the Gulf of Mexico waters released from the Mississippi Delta. These same pesticide exposures also create dead zones in our gut that make our personal physical and mental health decline over time. Exposure is cumulative, yet even two weeks on organic only foods and lifestyles, away from homes and areas treated with pesticides, begins to reverse the levels of pesticides in humans. Let us be mindful of all people‚Äôs requirements for healthier lives.
