New Study: Common Pesticides Kill Frogs on Contact
Science & Tech  (tags: discovery, environment, habitat, health, research, safety, science, scientists, society, technology, world )
J.L. - 3 hours ago - motherjones.com

Such "endocrine-disrupting chemicals" have what scientists call chronic, not acute, effects on amphibians--that is, they don't kill them outright, but they alter them profoundly--even change their gender.

If they reverse genders, reproduction could still occur, but if this agent only reversed one of the sexes, eventually, no more frogs and that's called extinction. We need some petitions. Thanks, Dianne for the information.

Thx. for Posting Dianne Lynn...

Atrazine is one of the world's most common pesticides & tests show that it turns male frogs into females at concentrations as low as 2.5 parts per billion. It also causes cancer in laboratory mammals & developmental problems in fish. Please sign & share
