Having removed the very toxic methyl bromide from agricultural use, now the state legislature in California is proposing today to allow the use of methyl iodide. Scientists have described this as a known carcinogen, a thyroid disrupter, a toxin for the nervous system and something that may cause miscarriages. It is used in laboratories to create cancer cells for research! I do not want this leaching into my ground water, and I doubt you do either.
If you reside in California, please inform your legislators about not allowing methyl iodide to be used for agricultural purposes.

My thanks to you for making intelligent choices for your health, my health, and the health of everyone in the state.
