|Description||What's On My Food? is your decoder ring for the chemicals on your food. This tool helps savvy shoppers sort green-washing and scare-mongering from differences that make a difference. Using independent science and decades of experience in the field of pesticide reform, Pesticide Action Network's new tool links pesticide residue data with the health information (toxicology) for each chemical, making this information publicly available for the first time. As it turns out, some pesticides are really scary while others aren't so bad -- the trick is sorting these risks according to what matters most to you.
The app is a searchable database designed to make the ins and outs of pesticide exposure visible and more understandable to the non-expert. Because not all pesticides are created equal. Get the facts.
· Toxicology data cross-reference from multiple authoritative listings.
· PAN’s Pesticide Info database, which tracks toxicity, chemical composition and regulatory information on thousands of pesticides.
· Millions of tests from USDA’s Pesticide Data Program.
· Free, searchable database of 93 foods
· Visual toxicity legend gives a quick handle on health risks associated with particular pesticides:
> Carcinogenicity (Cancer)
> Developmental or Reproductive Toxicity
> Endocrine (Hormone System) Disruption
· Conventional vs. Organic comparison on most foods
· Links to deeper information & opportunities to take action
Use the app, share it with others: we built it to help move the public conversation about pesticides into an arena where you don’t have to be an expert to participate.
