    Something in the water

    Atrizine is one of the most common contaminants found in our drinking water. It is an herbicide used to control weeds, used extensively on large crops such as corn and sugar cane. It is used on golf courses christmas tree farms and in regrowing forests. This herbicide works by interfering with photosynthesis, it moves upward into new areas of growth by being taken up through the roots and leaves.


    In the farming industry it is considered innovative, but in the bodies of living beings it can be harmful, deadly or life altering. Many studies have shown these negative affects. It is a hormone disruptor. it harms reproductive health in both men and women, it is carcinogenic. It can cause birth defects, harm fetal development and survival. In animal studies it has been found to harm the heart and liver and is thought that it could also have the same effect in humans but hasn’t been studied. It has also been found to cause type 2 diabetes insulin resistance and caridomyopathy & oxidative stress. In another study it was shown to alter dopamine levels leading to neurodegenerative disorders. It caused the release of inflammatory cytokines and neurotoxic substances leading to neurodegeneration. In a study exposing crayfish to the herbicide they displayed behavioral changes leading to a negative impact on their ability to survive such as finding a mate or food.


    In 1997 Syngenta asked Tyrone Hayes of University of California Berkeley to study their product Atrizine. What he found was that is was a hormone disruptor, in laboratory tests a small amount of the chemical caused frogs to become chemically castrated and eventually change sex. When he brought his research to them, they told him he wasn’t allowed to publish it or talk about it with other scientists. They asked him to manipulate the data. He refused, they went so far as to threaten his life and the safety of his family members.


    The use of Atrazine is banned in 60 countries. Many have called for it to be banned in the US. The EPA has proposed changes to how this herbicide is used in order to protect aquatic plant communities. The changes proposed will limit the amount that can be used as well as how and when it is applied to lessen the impact from runoff. By no means are these new proposed rules predicted to slow down the use of this herbicide. The market is expected to grow significantly in the coming years with no slowing down in sight. The proposed rule changes seem to be geared toward plant life, rather than the affects on human and animal health. The drinking water limits for Atrizine remain unchanged at 3ppb. However levels much lower than that have shown to be harmful.


    We are all brothers and sisters in humanity. We are all made from the same dust of stars. We cannot be separated because all life is interconnected.

    A lot of farming and industrial waste runs off into our water. This is real concrete environmental concerns rather than the CO2 is a killer meme.

    You are safer on the west coast that the east or center of the country where the usage of atrazine is often 10 times higher.

    The OP shared an amazing news story of an alleged dangerous herbicide and its negatives. There is also this:

    "Researchers have found evidence that even extremely diluted concentrations of drug residues harm fish, frogs and other aquatic species, and have been shown to labs to impair human cell function."

    https://www.scientificamerican.com/a...-water-supply/


    Almost half of rivers contaminated by drugs – study

    ["A shocking 43.5% of the world’s waterways are contaminated with drugs, according to a research team who published their findings on Wednesday in the journal Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry.

    Led by the University of York’s Alejandra Bouzas-Monroy, the researchers analyzed 1,052 samples across 104 countries and found 23 separate pharmaceutical compounds at levels exceeding those considered “safe.” These included antidepressants, antihistamines, benzodiazepines, painkillers, and stimulants.

    More than a third (34.1%) of the sites where multiple samples were taken had more than one location with drug concentrations found to be of “ecological concern.” [...]

    Bouzas-Monroy’s study also mentioned the high levels of non-pharmaceutical contamination plaguing the world’s waterways, from industrial chemicals and pesticides to heavy metals like lead."

    Note: The results of a study conducted by the U.S. Geological Survey found that of the 139 streams tested, 80% had detectable chemicals. What's more, these included active pharmaceutical compounds that were contaminating aquatic life. July 19, 2022

    Both chemical herbicides and medication run-off into our water supply is harmful. And farm waste.
