ALERT: Neonic pesticides in tap water react with chlorine to create hazardous chemicals that are 300 times more toxic

Researchers warn that conventional methods for treating water can trigger chemical reactions in neonicotinoid contaminants. The resulting metabolites are proven to be far more toxic than the original “neonic” pesticides. Their newest experiment followed up on their discovery of neonicotinoids in tap water sources. The team investigated the risk of the pesticides getting exposed to chlorine-based water treatments and transforming into chlorinated disinfection byproducts (DBPs). … Continue reading ALERT: Neonic pesticides in tap water react with chlorine to create hazardous chemicals that are 300 times more toxic
