Atrazine, the most commonly used herbicide in the U.S., has been
deemed a "likely" carcinogen in a draft EPA report. The chemical
kills weeds around corn, citrus fruits, and other crops, but it may
also cause uterine, prostate, and breast cancer and disrupt
reproductive development after it seeps into drinking water, EPA
scientists say. The EPA hasn't finished its report, and a decision
on whether the use of atrazine should be restricted could take months
or even years. Novartis, the biggest manufacturer of the chemical,
denies that atrazine use carries big risks.
