Chlorpyrifos (CPS), sold under many brandnames, is an organophosphate pesticide used to kill a number of pests including insects and worms.[6] It is used on crops, animals, and buildings.[6] It was introduced in 1965 by Dow Chemical Company. It acts on the nervous system of insects by inhibiting acetylcholinesterase. Chlorpyrifos ingestion, mostly due to suicide, results in more than 10,000 human deaths a year.[6]

Chlorpyrifos is considered moderately hazardous to humans by the World Health Organization.[7] Exposure surpassing recommended levels has been linked to neurological effects, persistent developmental disorders and autoimmune disorders. Exposure during pregnancy may harm the mental development of children, and most home use was banned in 2001 in the U.S.[8] In agriculture, it is "one of the most widely used organophosphate insecticides" in the United States, and before being phased out for residential use was one of the most used residential insecticides.[9] On March 29, 2017, EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt denied a petition to ban chlorpyrifos.[10]​


Magnetic Tape was invented by BASF in the 1930's when the Nazi's were in power. I'm not interested in unsubstantiated associations with Nazi's I'm interested in evidence of harm.
It seems like the evidence is sound and at least in my neck of the woods, licensing for most uses has already been withdrawn

Read my comment...the stuff is dangerous to humans.

@nicknotes Strangely enough I’d already read it. Even before you posted it here. 😉


That's why he eats at McDonald's, no veggies.



That is disturbing to no end. Makes me happy I eat mostly organic and grow much of my own.
