de-register methyliodide for agricultural use

Dear Friend,

You may have heard that California, the nation's largest agriculturalproducer, is on the verge of approving a potent carcinogenic gas for useon strawberry fields and other food crops. The chemical -- methyl iodide-- is so toxic that scientists in labs use only small amounts with specialprotective equipment, yet agricultural applications mean it could bereleased directly into the air and water.Whatever California decides, the only surefire way to keep this poisonaway from our food and farm workers is for the U.S. EnvironmentalProtection agency to re-evaluate and ban methyl iodide at the federallevel.I just signed a petition to the EPA asking them to de-register methyliodide for agricultural use. Will you too?
