FC: ATRAZINE BY JOSHUA RUCH
1: What is atrazine? Atrazine is a chemical used in herbicide. It is also used in some dyes,and also explosives. | My opinon is that atrazine should not be used in products .It is harmful to people and humans. It also harms frog and makes them deformed and mutated. The reason how frogs get deformed from this chemical is. IT is sprayed on the ground and it rains and the water run off makes the chemical go in the water. That is how it happens.
2: The following are some effects it has on the eviroment. It makes soil breakdown so it makes the ground erode. Atrazine are mainly asorbed through the roots, but also throw the foliage. Once absorbed, it is pushed upwards and it grows in the tips and in the leaves of the plant. Atrazine has not that much effects on birds as it does humans and other species. Also In the U.S. alone over 77million pounds were used in 2003. It isn also banned in the european union. Also it is really controversial because of the effects on some amphibians. Atrazine is used in over 80 countries worldwide which is a big use of the chemical. There is so much more stuff that is bad about atrazine. That is why i think they should not use this chemical. That are my opions why atrazine should be banned from being used on the earth and the ground.
