Protect our Farmworker Communities from Childhood Cancer-Causing Pesticides in Monterey County, CA [Video]

Farmworkers, teachers, and nurses have been reporting for decades their concerns that their children, students, and young patients suffer from childhood cancers likely due to pesticide exposure. Two recent studies from the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health confirm these fears, linking more than a dozen pesticides – most of them applied in Monterey and Santa Cruz Counties – to childhood leukemias and brain tumors if their mothers while pregnant lived within 2.5 miles of the pesticide applications.We cannot wait years or decades, once again, for the state or our County Ag Commissioners to act to protect our communities’ health. We will call on our Ag Commissioners to stop pesticide secrecy and immediately post pesticide warnings online, so we can take safety precautions from harmful pesticide drift. We will also call on our Ag Commissioners and the state to take immediate actions to restrict the use of these pesticides linked to childhood cancers. Finally, we will call on the state to immediately initiate plans to put public health first in our pesticide regulatory and agricultural systems, similar to the US Senate’s proposed “Protect America’s Children from Toxic Pesticides Act” and the European Union’s “Farm to Fork Strategy”.Monterey County Government Center CourtyardSalinas, CAOctober 26, 2021
