A Pen Isn't the Only Gift Trump Gave Dow Chemical

Agelbert NOTE: For those of you who doubt that rather long each of Polluters in the USA, this is a great example of how the FACTS about some toxic product they make are twisted to defend MORE profit over people and planet. 

The following legalese disclaimer (posted IN MARCH OF 2017) by Wikipedia placed just above the cleverly MASSAGED description of the effects of Chlorpyrifos (see "moderately toxic to humans" ), a SARIN GAS derivative that has been PROVEN TOXIC to humans in general, and CHILDREN IN PARTICULAR, says it ALL:

Chlorpyrifos   is a crystalline organophosphate insecticide, acaracide and miticide. It was introduced in 1965 by Dow Chemical Company and is known by many trade names including Dursban, Lorsban, Bolton Insecticide, Nufos, Cobalt, Hatchet, and Warhawk [5]. It acts on the nervous system of insects by inhibiting acetylcholinesterase.

Chlorpyrifos is moderately toxic to humans, and exposure has been linked to neurological effects, persistent developmental disorders and autoimmune disorders. Exposure during pregnancy retards the mental development of children, and most home use was banned in 2001 in the U.S.[6] In agriculture, it is "one of the most widely used organophosphate insecticides" in the United States  :P, according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and before being phased out for residential use was one of the most used residential insecticides.[7] On March 29, 2017, EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt   denied a petition to ban chlorpyrifos.[8]

Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
