Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, August 30, 2021 – The Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) ruled last week that chlorpyrifos, the active ingredient in the insecticide Lorsban, will be banned effective February of next year, 2022.
For decades, health organizations have been pushing for the ban. Chlorpyrifos is the one of the most used conventional insecticide in the United States. More than 1 million pounds of chlorpyrifos is sprayed on crops across the country every year. These crops include corn, soybeans, peaches, strawberries, apples, and walnuts.
Although chlorpyrifos itself is not toxic, the way that the body breaks it down creates a toxic reaction in the body. Adults may experience adverse short-term side effects following exposure, but children tend to be heavily affected long-term due to their inability to break down the ingredient after exposure. Research conducted by the EPA has repeatedly concluded that children who were exposed to chlorpyrifos may be a direct cause of their children’s neurological damage diagnoses for those exposed prenatally or up to 5 years old.
