LETTER TO THE EDITOR ― MEDIA RELEASE
RESPONSE TO SANELA BEGIC ( CANADIAN CANCER SOCIETY )
NEWS TALK 980 CJME
PESTICIDES DO NOT CAUSE CANCER
Pest control products are SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE, and NO HARM WILL OCCUR when they are used according to label directions.
Nevertheless, HIRED GUN LOBBYIST Sanela Begic CONSPIRES to IMPOSE a PROHIBITION against the use of pest control products under the PRETEXT of MOCK-CONCERNS regarding cancer.
Even Begic’s organization, Canadian Cancer Society, states on several of its web-sites that scientific research does NOT provide a conclusive link be-tween pesticides and human cancer.
For information about NO CONCLUSIVE LINK, go to …
Begic herself actually admits that the research on the link between cancer and pest control products is not entirely convincing, supposedly because it is early in the process and has only been a topic of interest for only 15 or 20 years.
Begic’s supposition is WRONG !
Pest control products like 2,4-D Herbicide have been used for the control of broad-leaved weeds in the Urban Landscape SINCE 1946.
2,4-D has a 65-YEAR UNBLEMISHED SAFETY RECORD regarding long-term risk to health.
65 years is FAR GREATER than Begic’s 15 to 20-year supposition.
There is INDISPUTABLE PROOF that pest control products ARE NOT known or probable carcinogens.
It is a MYTH to believe that pest control products somehow cause cancer.
Health Canada’s EXTENSIVE TOXICOLOGY DATABASE INDISPUTABLY PROVES that pest control products are SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE since they have been scrutinized and approved by the HUNDREDS of expert scientists at Health Canada !
Health Canada requires each new pest control product to go through about TWO-HUNDRED SEPARATE TESTS to examine health and environmental impacts as well as value, and costing about 250 MILLION DOLLARS.
There are THOUSANDS OF DEATHS per year from KNOWN CANCER-CAUSING SUBSTANCES such as cigarette smoke and alcohol.
There is NOT ONE KNOWN CANCER DEATH from the proper use of pest control products used in the Urban Landscape.
Conversely, Canadian Cancer Society has NOT SPENT A SINGLE PENNY to research pest control products.
Begic and her buddies NEVER conducted a serious scientific study … evidently because they are NOT COMPETENT OR MOTIVATED to do so.
Neither Begic, nor anyone else at Canadian Cancer Society, COULD EVEN BE BOTHERED to have used the EXTENSIVE TOXICOLOGY DATABASE that is available from Health Canada.
They are not only SCIENTIFICALLY IGNORANT, but also LAZY and OBTUSE.
In fact, according to American Cancer Society, cancer rates and deaths are actually DROPPING.

A MERE 100 UNDISCLOSED STUDIES
Begic and Canadian Cancer Society have NO CREDIBLE EXPERTISE.
According to Begic ―
The research is very suggestive ― we have over [ undisclosed ] 106 studies now in the last decade alone, suggesting that the link is growing between certain types of cancer and cosmetic pesticides. [ ?!?! ]
Begic and Canadian Cancer Society ALLEGE having A MERE 106 UNDISCLOSED, NON-EXISTENT AND UNVERIFIABLE SECRET EVIDENCE about the safety of pest control products.
Canadian Cancer Society is a FUND-RAISING, PROFIT-SEEKING, and LOBBYING organization, and NOT a science, research, or health organization.
How could this Anti-Pesticide Organization obtain studies that have somehow been withheld from the entire world ?
Moreover, pest control products like 2,4-D Herbicide have been the subject of over 40,000 STUDIES.
Furthermore, since 1988, The Industry Task Force II on 2,4-D Research Data has submitted to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency over 250 studies concerning mammalian and environmental toxicology, environmental fate and residues.
2,4-D is probably THE MOST studied and best understood of ANY chemical … not just pesticide … in existence.

CHILDREN ARE NOT AT RISK
Begic is DESPICABLE in her use of CHILDREN as WEAPONS OF COERCION and ULTIMATE TERROR in order to promote Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION ―
Kids are rolling in their school yards in the grass, putting their fingers in their mouth without washing their hands in between. [ ?!?! ]
Begic is WRONG !
The safety assessments of pest control products by Pest Management Regulatory Agency of Heath Canada ( PMRA ) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ( EPA ) DO take children into consideration.
These assessments DO consider children’s physiology, behaviours, and habits while playing on treated grass.
Moreover, there are NO valid reports of pest control product problems with children.
For more information about CHILDREN ARE NOT AT RISK, go to the following web-page …
USING CIGARETTES IS RIDICULOUS AND STUPID
Begic claims that Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION will somehow serve as a pre-emptive strike, comparing the situation to CIGARETTES.
Again, Begic is WRONG !
Any comparison of cigarettes to pest control products is PITIFULLY RIDICULOUS, as well as LAUGHABLY STUPID !
Cigarettes have NOTHING IN COMMON with conventional pest control products.
Begic uses this NONSENSICAL COMPARISON purely as a means of COERCING and INFLUENCING the public into believing that it is necessary to PROHIBIT pest control products, despite the fact that they are GOVERNMENT-APPROVED, FEDERALLY-REGULATED, SCIENTIFICALLY-SAFE, PRACTICALLY-NON-TOXIC, and CAUSE NO HARM.
There is NO FEDERAL REGISTRATION of tobacco products.
By comparison, there IS a FEDERAL REGISTRATION of pest control products.
There is NO agency that regulates tobacco, except perhaps for restricting access to young people.
By comparison, there ARE agencies that REGULATE pest control products ― Health Canada.
Moreover, cigarettes are ABOVE THE LAW because our governments have chosen to shield them from the regulatory process.
This is NOT the case with pest control products.
Our governments have chosen to HEAVILY REGULATE pest control products.
Pest control products are STRINGENTLY TESTED and REGULATED in order to ensure that they are SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE and CAUSE NO HARM.

PUBLIC DOES NOT WANT PROHIBITION
Begic ALLEGES that the public somehow wants Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION.
Begic is WRONG !
A recent POLL conducted by Canadian Consumer Specialty Products Association ( CCSPA ) showed that the VAST MAJORITY of residents in British Columbia are OPPOSED to the PROHIBITION of conventional pest control products, and they actually FAVOUR the continued use of these products around their homes and in public green spaces.
For more information about BRITISH COLUMBIA POLL, please go to the following web-page …
Additionally, according to another recent Ontario poll, MORE THAN HALF of Ontario residents believe that the provincial government DID NOT DO THE RIGHT THING by implementing Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION.
Ontario residents WOULD RATHER HAVE THE BAN SCRAPPED OR MODIFIED.
For more information about ONTARIO POLL, please go to the following web-page …
BOGUS GREEN ALTERNATIVES
According to Begic ―
If a ban does go through, people will still have NATURAL OPTIONS to keep lawns green from organic corn gluten which prevents dandelions and vinegar formulas that burn down weeds. For insects you can use things like garden sulphur and even broken up sea-shells to name a few. [ ?!?! ]
Begic is WRONG !
It is IMPOSSIBLE for home-owners or professionals to keep their properties beautiful by using so-called Natural Options or Green Alternative Pesticides.
There are NO viable, efficacious, economical, or low-risk alternatives to replace conventional pest control products.
Green Alternative Pesticides ( a.k.a. Natural Options ) are BOGUS and DISMAL FAILURES ― they DO NOT WORK.
A well-maintained conventional lawn and landscape can ONLY BE ACHIEVED WITH CONVENTIONAL pest control products and fertilizers.
Fortunately, CONVENTIONAL pest control products are SAFE, EFFECTIVE, ECONOMICAL, and LOW-RISK.
For more information about GREEN ALTERNATIVES, go to the following web-page …
AGRICULTURE – TARGETED BY ANTI-PESTICIDE ACTIVISTS
Begic attempts to DECEIVE THE PUBLIC by claiming that she is not asking for a ban on ALL pest control products ―
We're not actually talking about all pesticides in the province, we're only talking about cosmetic, non-essential, beautification-purpose only type pesticides. [ ?!?! ]
Begic and her buddies have clearly shown that they fully intend to have products BANNED in the Agriculture Industry.

CANADIAN CANCER SOCIETY’S WASTEFUL CONSPIRACY
Canadian Cancer Society is WASTING ITS MONEY AND RESOURCES in its CONSPIRACY AGAINST pest control products.
MILLIONS OF DOLLARS that could be used to care for those STRICKEN WITH CANCER are being DIVERTED to CAMPAIGNS to ban products that have been deemed SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE by Health Canada.
It is common-knowledge that THE MAJORITY OF ITS DONATION MONEY DOES NOT GO INTO RESEARCH.
The MAJORITY OF DONATION MONEY goes to paying for HIRED GUN LOBBYISTS like Sanela Begic, as well as clerical employees.
By early 2012, Canadian Cancer Society SQUANDERED between 2,500,000 and 5,000,000 DOLLARS on SUBVERSIVE Anti-Pesticide CONSPIRACIES.
Perhaps if Canadian Cancer Society were to prioritize its DONATION MONEY to the primary causes of cancer, such as life-style choices, LIVES WOULD BE SAVED.
For more information about CANADIAN CANCER SOCIETY SQUANDERING & ALARMISM, go to the following links …
ALLEGATIONS from Sanela Begic about the IMAGINARY DANGER of pest control products are TOTALLY FALSE, and are UNTRUE MIS-REPRESENTATIONS designed to alarm and enrage the public and enhance the BUSINESS, CASH-FLOW and PROFIT of Canadian Cancer Society.
Begic has NO SCIENTIFIC PROOF that pest control products cause cancer.
There is NOT ONE KNOWN ILLNESS or DEATH from the proper use of pest control products used in the Urban Landscape.
There is NO direct link between pest control products and cancer.
Pest control products CAUSE NO HARM, including chronic effects such as CANCER.
Any PROHIBITION against pest control products is NOT JUSTIFIED.
Sanela Begic should Get Off Our grASS !

NORAHG is the National Organization Responding Against HUJE that seek to harm the Green space industry.
NORAHG morally represents the VAST SILENT MAJORITY of people associated with turf and ornamental plant maintenance who are OPPOSED to Anti Pesticide PROHIBITION and the CLOSURE or ABANDONMENT of green spaces under the RIDICULOUS PRETEXT of somehow « saving » the environment.
NORAHG is a NATIONAL NON PROFIT NON PARTISAN organization that does not accept money from corporations or governments or trade associations, and represents NO VESTED INTERESTS WHATSOEVER.
NORAHG is dedicated to reporting the work of RESPECTED and HIGHLY RATED EXPERTS who promote ENVIRONMENTAL REALISM and PESTICIDE TRUTHS.
NORAHG was the brainchild of William H. Gathercole and his colleagues in 1991. Mr. Gathercole is now retired, although his name continues to appear as founder.
We are living in the DARK AGE OF ANTI PESTICIDE TERRORISM where sound science is trumped by JUNK SCIENCE and UNVERIFIABLE SECRET EVIDENCE through FABRICATION, INNUENDO, and INTERNET RUMOUR ― scientific research PROVES that pest control products CAUSE NO HARM and can be USED SAFELY.
HUJE are enviro-lunatics, anti-pesticide activists, and lawn-haters, who particularly DESPISE the golf industry.
There is NO RECOURSE but LITIGATION against these HUJE.
Another RECOURSE is to SEEK the CANCELLATION of GOVERNMENT GRANTS and REVOCATION of the TAX EXEMPT STATUS of their organizations.
HUJE should Get OFF Our grASS, and they should Roast In Hell.
NORAHG manages the Library Force Of Nature Reports and References, which is a VAST ARCHIVE of DOCUMENTS, AUDIO CLIPS, and VIDEOS on ALL Anti Pesticide Terrorist Acts of Subversion.
The purpose of this ARCHIVE is to provide information that will lead to a SUCCESSFUL LITIGATION against Anti-Pesticide Vermin.
All names, statements, activities, and affiliations have been ARCHIVED for the intention of eventual CRIMINAL CHARGES.
When CRIMINAL CHARGES for FRAUD and CONSPIRACY are laid, legal experts say that there is sufficient information to lead to a SUCCESSFUL PROSECUTION !
