The farm fields just up the coast from Malibu are a major source of food.
They are also a major user of pesticides … which enter the food chain and the atmosphere just upwind from Malibu.
One of those chemicals is chlorpyrifos .. a poison that some scientists say is linked to nerve problems in children… and in farmworkers.
The EPA banned its spraying indoors to combat household bugs more than a decade ago.
Strawberries, corn and citrus is sprayed with chlorpyrifos … which the E P A had tried to ban under the Obama administration.
The Trump administration reversed that proposed ban … saying farmers need a cost effective bug spray.
Yesterday … California said it would ban it in this state.
And … the nation’s largest producer of chlorpyrifos says they will stop making it.
Corteva company says it made the decision based on financial considerations, not safety concerns.
