The USA lags behind other countries in banning harmful pesticides

50 years ago the USA led the way in regulating pesticides, but research published this week in Environmental Health finds that the country is still using many pesticides that are either banned or being phased out in the EU, China and Brazil. In this blog Nathan Donley, author of the research, tells us about his study and how an unofficial policy of relying on voluntary pesticide cancellations has led to this situation. This is a repost of a blog originally published on BioMed Central.
