Atrazine: Who's Putting This in My Water!?

Atrazine  is a common pesticide used to maintain broadleaf and grassy weeds. The University of Berkeley California recently tested the effects of Atrazine on frogs. The results showed “emasculating three-quarters of them…The 75 percent that are chemically castrated are essentially “dead” because of their inability to reproduce in the wild.” (Sanders) To summarize Atrazine showed it was a sterilization agent when exposed to frogs. Professor Tyrone B. Hayes of integrative biology brings up the importance of these findings showing ““In an environment where they are competing with unexposed animals, they have zero chance of reproducing.”

This pesticide has recently been found in public water. An article from the San Francisco Chronicle reports of a women who complained her water “tasted funny”, as San Francisco Public Utilities Commission dismissed her claim as there was no evidence of water issues. The women claims officials Monday night told her they discovered pesticides in the water around Sunset district, San Fran. She later tested the water herself and discovered the water contained traces of Atrazine.

 

It seems someone may be trying to keep this information from getting out. That’s why were covering it. To watch the words from the University themselves hit the link below.
