Pesticide DANGERS: The Poison Papers expose decades of collusion between industry and regulators

A massive cache of documents and correspondence between regulatory agencies and the chemical industry has now seen the light of day – and it exposes a stunning pattern of collusion and deceit. Over 200,000 documents – including study summaries, internal secret memos, meeting minutes and sworn testimonies – attest to the fact that both industry and regulators were aware of the extreme toxicity of many chemical products, and conspired to hide this information from the public.

Bayer Accidentally Funds Study Showing Its Pesticide Is Killing Bees, Promptly Denies Conclusions

A large-scale study on neonicotinoid pesticides is adding to the growing body of evidence that these agricultural chemicals are indeed harming bee populations. Carried out at 33 sites in the United Kingdom, Germany and Hungary, the study found that exposure to neonicotinoids “left honey bee hives less likely to survive over winter, while bumblebees and solitary bees produced fewer queens.”

NHF Slams the Global Pesticide Empire at Codex

May 22, 2017

NHF not only crashed but crushed Monsanto CropLife International’s usually-predictable pesticide-party when Scott Tips, President and General Counsel of the National Health Federation spoke against glyphosate and other pesticides, demanding the deluge of poison stop killing us, the bees, wildlife, aquatic life, and the entire Planet at the 49th Session of the Codex Committee on Pesticide Residues (CCPR) meeting held in Beijing, China from April 24-29, 2017.

Olive oil is made of olives, grape seed oil is made of grape seeds, peanut oil is of peanuts, and canola oil is made from rapeseed. “Rapes” or turnips belong to the Brassicaceae family or the cruciferous vegetables. In the past, rapeseed oil was only used for industrial purposes.

The FDA banned its use for human consumption in 1956 because it was toxic.

TELL THE EPA: TAKE ACTION ON BEE-KILLING PESTICIDES!

Bees are dying at alarming rates worldwide – and because bees are responsible for roughly one in every three bites of food we eat, we’re all in trouble. That’s why we’re calling on the Environmental Protection Agency to act NOW to protect them.

We don't need bee-killing pesticides to feed the world

For decades, agro-chemical corporations like Bayer have been trying to convince us that we need bee-killing neonicotinoids, and that humans simply can’t feed ourselves without them. A scathing UN report just called that story a complete “myth.”

This report on pesticides is a bombshell. Its expert authors say in no uncertain terms: the “myth” that humans need any pesticides -- not just neonics -- to feed the world is being spread by the “unethical” practices of global corporations who consistently deny the science showing the harms of using these toxins to grow our food.

“Pesticides OK, Despite Risks,” Says EPA

Apparently, diminished brain function and reduction of children’s IQs is insufficient cause for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to overturn the approval of a chemical manufactured by one of the largest producers on the planet.

The EPA recently rejected a petition to ban the use of insecticides known as chlorpyrifos on food crops—despite the agency’s own evidence showing the harm they can cause.

Houston, We Have a Glyphosate Problem

Makia Freeman, June 3, 2016
We all have a massive glyphosate problem on our hands, even if you have eaten 100% organic food all your life. The pesticide chemical glyphosate, Monsanto’s gift to mankind, is totally out of control – not just in the US, but also in Europe, Australia and many other nations that use it.
