Beyond Pesticides reports: "Atrazine has been shown to be harmful to humans, mammals and amphibians even when the amount used is less that the government allows.
Children and young adults are particularly vulnerable to pesticides, according to John Kepner, the project director of Beyond Pesticides, because they are still developing and their smaller body sizes mean any exposure may affect them more severely.
The report, "Taking Toxics out of Maryland's Health Care Sector: Transition to Green Pest Management Practices to Protect Health and the Environment," was co-written by the Maryland Pesticide Network, a statewide coalition advocating safe pest management practices, and Beyond Pesticides, a national environmental and public health group, under their joint Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in Health Care Facilities Project, and in collaboration with Maryland Hospitals for a Healthy Environment at the University of Maryland School of Nursing.

And Beyond Pesticides cites published research showing that 29 of the 30 most commonly used lawn pesticides are toxic to birds, fish, amphibians, and/or bees.
These groups included the National Cooperative Grocers Association, the National Organic Coalition and Rural Advancement Foundation International-USA, Beyond Pesticides, the National Campaign for Sustainable Agriculture, the Organic Consumers Association, and Consumers Union.
Activist group Beyond Pesticides attacked a major antimicrobial ingredient used in some consumer products, but the warning was exaggerated, according to executives at the Soap and Detergent Association (SDA).
Filing the suit were Beyond Pesticides, the Communications Workers of America, the Canadian Labour Congress, the Union Network International, and the Center for Environmental Health.
Jay Feldman, executive director of environmental advocacy group Beyond Pesticides commented, The headlines read good, but the actual protection is not adequate.
The implications of this case may extend far beyond pesticides.
To take action by making your yard a safer place to be a bee, consult resources from the BEE Protective program, launched by the groups Beyond Pesticides and the Center for Food Safety, at http://goo.
However, as pointed out in a published reaction to these test results by Beyond Pesticides, the government does not factor in the synergistic or additive effects of multiple pesticides interacting with one another inside the human body.
