What Do We Do If The Canary Stops Singing? 20 Years of  Atrazine Science and Policy

Dr. Hayes will provide an update on his long-term research on the commonly used chemical herbicide atrazine. Dr. Hayes’ research has previously shown that water contaminated with atrazine directly impacts normal amphibian reproductive development. Dr. Hayes has also provided evidence that atrazine may increase the risk of certain cancers in humans. In addition to the science, Dr. Hayes will discuss the hurdles he has encountered with policy makers and the manufacturer of atrazine.
