When did we sign ANY informed consent authorizing our government and agricultural industry to enroll us in an experimental “HUMAN LIVESTOCK” PROJECT (using potentially toxic chemicals for farm use and residential use) to see whether we’d suffer any serious adverse health outcomes?
Pesticides, herbicides, insecticides and fungicides are poisons that KILL weeds, insects and other “pests.” We’re told, however, they’re safe for HUMAN CONSUMPTION. Who is telling us they’re safe? Not surprisingly, it’s the manufacturers of these chemicals who are making these claims. Apparently, the International Agency for Research on Cancer has a different view of these poisons. Their research concluded these chemicals MAY be carcinogenic compounds (CANCER CAUSING AGENTS) capable of potentially causing cancer in HUMANS.
The following letter was written in MARCH of 2015 after this organization assessed the safety/risk of using several insecticides, herbicides and pesticides. I’ve highlighted just a couple of sections for you to read:
Even if current research only “suspects” these substances to be carcinogenic, why would our government permit their continued distribution and use until conclusive evidence is found for their safety? Obviously, many would argue the profits these chemicals produce exceed the potential future lawsuits. A more important question, however, is:
WHY WOULD YOU USE THESE CHEMICALS ON YOUR OWN LAWNS AND GARDENS EXPOSING FAMILY MEMBERS AND PETS TO THEIR POTENTIAL HARMFUL (and possible lethal) EFFECTS?
Roundup contains GLYPHOSATE (the main ingredient in one of the most popular weed killers used today suspected of causing CANCER.) These conclusions have NOT reduced the use of Roundup in the U.S.A. The only possible justification for continued unrestricted use of chemicals such as this is:
LACK OF AWARENESS
on the consumer’s end, and
on the agricultural end.
Waiting for family members and/or family pets to become diseased before considering alternative options to create beautiful gardens and lawns is a foolish choice. It is also foolish to purchase grocery store produce sprayed with these toxic chemicals in an attempt to “save” on grocery expenses. A diseased family member and/or pet winds up costing substantially more (financially and emotionally) than the difference in price for organic produce.
Healthier changes begin with EACH OF US LOOKING OUT FOR OUR OWN FAMILY’S NEEDS. Start today by choosing alternative products that EFFECTIVELY and SAFELY achieve this goal:
DON’T CONSENT ANY LONGER TO BE PART OF THIS HUMAN EXPERIMENT!
