Getting Help Paying your Bills During COVID-19
Here's how you can manage your finances if you’re unable to cover all your expenses this month.
Glyphosate pesticide in beer and wine
Most of us take it for granted that the food and drinks we buy from the store are not putting our health at risk.
However, new research from public health groups and scientists from the past several years indicates that food and drinks are contaminated with glyphosate, the main ingredient in the weed killer Roundup. This is a potential health problem because in 2015 the World Health Organization found that glyphosate is a probable carcinogen. In 2017, the state of California also decided to list glyphosate as a probable carcinogen.
Health Insurance Rate Watch Project
It’s time for health insurers to get serious about lowering the cost of care by cutting waste and focusing on preventive care that gets results—instead of raising deductibles and hiking premiums. The Arizona PIRG Education Fund’s Health Insurance Rate Watch Project is working to make this a reality.
Your donation supports Arizona PIRG's work to stand up for consumers on the issues that matter, especially when powerful interests are blocking progress.
