Cotton is one of the most polluted crops on earth, perhaps due to a wrong perception as a non-food crop, causing a significant risk to our freshwater. Picture these numbers: cotton uses 24% of global insecticides market but at the same time, its acreage amounts to only 2.4% of the world's cultivated land.
All nine pesticides used on cotton in the U.S. are classified by the U.S. EPA as Category I and II- the most dangerous chemicals. were originally developed as toxic nerve agents during WWII and they have been linked to many forms of cancers. Some are 60 times more toxic that DDT! EPA considers 7 of the top 15 pesticides used on cotton as "likely" or "known" human carcinogens. That needs to change.
