The Myths About Banning Pesticides

 

Responding To Anti-Pesticide Prohibition

 

 

NORAHG is the National Organization Responding Against HUJE that seek to harm the Green space industry.

 

Communities and businesses are being HARMED by Anti-Pesticide CONSPIRACIES leading to NEEDLESS, SENSELESS, and MALICIOUS PROHIBITION against pest control products used in the Urban Landscape.

 

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.

 

 

 

The Myths About Banning Pesticides

 

Myth  ―  Pesticide Bans Are Necessary

 

 

Prohibition NOT necessary and NOT justified

 

 

ANY PROHIBITION against pest control products IS NOT NECESSARY and NOTJUSTIFIED because STRICT REGULATIONS based on scientific research already PROTECT our health and our environment.

 

According to Dr. Lorne Hepworth of CropLife Canada  ―

 

A province-wide ban on all pesticides is NOT JUSTIFIED because STRICT REGULATIONS BASED ON SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH ALREADY PROTECT OUR HEALTH.

 

CropLife Canada is the trade association representing manufacturers, developers and distributors of pest control products, including those designed specifically for urban use.

Pest control products are SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE, CAUSE NO HARM, and DO NOT CAUSE CANCER.

 

ANY PROHIBITION against pest control products IS NOT NECESSARY and NOTJUSTIFIED because pest control products used in the Urban Landscape are  …

 

●   Health-Canada-Approved

 

●   Federally-Legal

 

●   Scientifically-Safe

 

●   Practically-Non-Toxic

 

●   Good for the Beautification of the Environment

 

●   Good for the Safety of Children and Adults  *

 

*  Except when stored improperly in the home.

 

Furthermore, ANY PROHIBITION IS NOT NECESSARY and NOT JUSTIFIED because pest control products used in the Urban Landscape  …

 

●   Cause No Harm

 

●   Do Not Cause Cancer

 

●   Do Not Run-Off Into Lakes and Streams

 

●   Enhance the Urban Landscape

 

Overall, when pest control products are used properly, there are NO harmful irreversible effects to health and the environment !

 

Ultimately, PROHIBITION IS NOT NECESSARY and NOT JUSTIFIED since it leaves a LEGACY of  …

 

●   ANXIOUS children and adults ALARMED AND ENRAGED because of ALLEGATION, FABRICATION, INNUENDO, INTERNET RUMOUR, and CONCOCTED MYTHS

 

●   CONCOCTED ALLEGATIONS about the IMAGINARY DANGER of pest control products that are TOTALLY FALSE, and are UNTRUE MIS-REPRESENTATIONS designed to ALARM and ENRAGE people into believing that PROHIBITION is somehow necessary

 

●   DANGEROUS playgrounds maintained like GARBAGE DUMPS

 

●   DARK AGE OF ANTI-PESTICIDE TERRORISM where SOUND SCIENCE is trumped by JUNK SCIENCE and UNVERIFIABLE SECRET EVIDENCE

 

●   DESTROYED ECONOMIES because of CATASTROPHIC BUSINESS LOSSES

 

●   LOST JOBS and HARDSHIP for people because of DISINTEGRATING CUSTOMERS AND PLUMMETING REVENUES

 

●   MISAPPROPRIATION OF MONEY to DISCREDIT Health Canada and to PROHIBIT products that have already been SCIENTIFICALLY-APPROVED by the HIGHEST QUALITY EXPERTS

 

●   WEAKENED communities with NO OPPORTUNITIES FOR BUSINESS GROWTH

 

 

 

The Myths About Banning Pesticides

 

Myth  ―  Pesticides Are « Bad »

 

 

Activists DO NOT know what they are talking about

 

 

PROHIBITION is somehow validated by CONCOCTING MYTHS with ALLEGATIONS like «  it’s a no-brainer  …  pesticides are bad  ».    [ ?!?! ]

 

This is WRONG !

 

Ostensibly, Anti-Pesticide Activists want Government Officials to IMPLEMENT a NEEDLESS, SENSELESS, and MALICIOUS PROHIBITION of pest control products used in the Urban Landscape.

 

How did Anti-Pesticide Activists arrive at the conclusion that products used in Professional Lawn Care somehow are « bad » ?!?!

 

Was the activists’ ASSESSMENT based upon their vast scientific knowledge of pest control products ?!?!

 

NO ! 

 

Anti-Pesticide Activists have NO background, training, or education on matters concerning pest control products.

 

Did activists ASSESS these products after spending time and money carefully studying their effects on health and environment ?!?!

 

NO ! 

 

Anti-Pesticide Activists operate with FUND-RAISING organizations, or mere gardening clubs, and have NO EXPERTISE in science or research.

 

What regulatory system do activists base THEIR assessments on ?!?!

 

NONE !  

 

Anti-Pesticide Activists conveniently consider the hundreds of qualified scientists of Health Canada’s respected Pest Management Regulatory Agency to be incompetent and/or incapable of arriving at correct scientific findings concerning conventional pest control products.

 

Are Anti-Pesticide Activists COMPETENT to give ANY advice concerning pest control products ?!?!

 

NO !

 

In order to allow SOUND SCIENCE to be effectively practiced, it would be preferable that activists leave the interpretation of scientific research about pest control products to those people who ARE competent to do it  ―  Health Canada.

 

Can Anti-Pesticide Activists BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY ?!?!

 

NO !

 

Conventional pest control products are SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE since they have been scrutinized and approved by the HUNDREDS of expert scientists at Health Canada ! 

 

Overall, when they are used properly, there are NO harmful irreversible effects to health and the environment !

 

The ASSESSMENT proving that pest control products are SCIENTIFICALLY-SAFE is a process that can take up to TEN YEARS and COST HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS.

 

Only those pest control products that pose NO UNACCEPTABLE RISK to human health or the environment become HEALTH-CANADA-APPROVED and FEDERALLY-LEGAL. 

 

Canada has one of the MOST STRINGENT REGULATORY APPROVAL SYSTEMS in the world.

 

What regulatory system do activists base THEIR assessments on ?!?!

 

NONE ! 

 

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.

 

How many tests did activists perform for THEIR assessments regarding the safety of pest control products ?!?!

 

NONE ! 

 

However, some activists have often been compelled to make public appearances in a WHITE LABORATORY COAT to give the public the impression that they are, somehow, researchers or scientists.

 

TWO-HUNDRED SEPARATE TESTS represents two-hundred MORE tests than activists EVER used to back up ANY of their statements AGAINST pest control products.

 

And the cost to manufacturers to get a pest control product from the lab to store shelves is about 250 MILLION DOLLARS.

 

How much money did activists spend for THEIR assessments regarding the safety of pest control products ?!?!

 

NONE ! 

 

Consequently, Anti-Pesticide Activists CANNOT TAKEN SERIOUSLY.

 

Government Officials are no longer as easily coerced into agreeing with Anti-Pesticide Activists since they have been warned in advance ! 

 

Government Officials have seen what has been happening in Eastern Canada !

 

In Western Canada, Government Officials are now INCLINED TO STRONGLY SUPPORT the use of SCIENCE-BASED EVIDENCE when assessing pest control products.

 

Moreover, Government Officials are NOT INCLINED TO CREATE RESTRICTIONS OR LAWS THAT CONFLICT WITH HEALTH CANADA.

 

Consequently, Government Officials are NOT INCLINED TO PROHIBIT ANY PEST CONTROL PRODUCT in their jurisdictions.

 

 

Pesticides Are « Bad » ?!?!

 

Government of Alberta stopped the anti-pesticide trend

 

 

In 2011, the Government of Alberta STOPPED THE TREND towards NEEDLESS, SENSELESS, and MALICIOUS PROHIBITION. 

 

On August 9th, 2011, the Government of Alberta stated that it STRONGLY SUPPORTED the use of SCIENCE-BASED EVIDENCE when assessing pest control products.

 

Moreover, the Government of Alberta WILL NOT CREATE RESTRICTIONS OR LAWS THAT CONFLICT WITH THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, that is relied upon for health and safety assessments.

Government of British Columbia stopped the trend

 

 

In 2011, British Columbia’s SPECIAL COMMITTEE ON COSMETIC PESTICIDES announced that it will NOT RECOMMEND PROHIBITION against the use of pest control products in the Urban Landscape.

The Myths About Banning Pesticides

 

Myth  ―  Pesticide Bans Have Positive Effects

 

 

Business losses, bankruptcy, and unemployment

 

 

PROHIBITION is somehow validated by CONCOCTING MYTHS with ALLEGATIONS like «  pesticide bans are good for business  ».    [ ?!?! ]

 

This is WRONG !

 

Without pest control products, BUSINESSES OPERATING IN THE PROFESSIONAL LAWN CARE INDUSTRY HAVE BEEN DESTROYED.

 

These businesses have SUFFERED IMMENSE LOSSES, in the HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS.

 

The PROHIBITION of pest control products led to LOSS OF REVENUES, BUSINESS FAILURES, BANKRUPTCY, and UNEMPLOYMENT, inflicting TERROR, DESPAIR, and DESTITUTION on THOUSANDS of hapless victims throughout the Professional Lawn Care Industry.

 

The CATASTROPHIC BUSINESS LOSSES of the Professional Lawn Care Industry were EXTENSIVE because there were NO valid economical alternatives to replace the prohibited products. 

 

Consequently, businesses operating in the Professional Lawn Care Industry were INCAPABLE of providing adequate weed and insect control, and were UNABLE to keep their customers satisfied.

 

 

GREEN ALTERNATIVES  …  BOGUS & DISMAL FAILURES ( Web-Page )

Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITIONS DESTROYED the businesses operating in the Professional Lawn Care Industry in ALL jurisdictions across Canada, including British Columbia, Halifax Regional Municipality, Ontario, and Quebec.

 

 

 

Examples Of Destroyed Businesses

 

British Columbia   ―  catastrophic business losses

 

 

Because of the IMMINENT 2013-2014 PROVINCIAL PROHIBITION in British Columbia, ALL businesses operating in the Professional Lawn Care Industry have STAGNATED, and, because of LOCAL MUNICIPAL PROHIBITIONS, many businesses have LOST OVER 40 PER CENT OF THEIR CUSTOMERS.

Examples Of Destroyed Businesses

 

Ontario   ―  catastrophic business losses

 

 

Because of Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION, provinces like Ontario now have a TRAIL OF CATASTROPHIC BUSINESS LOSSES WITH HUNDREDS OF SMALL BUSINESSES DESTROYED and THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE OUT OF WORK.

 

Because of the 2009 PROVINCIAL PROHIBITION in Ontario, businesses operating in the Professional Lawn Care Industry LOST OVER 500,000,000 DOLLARS, with up to 12,500 UNEMPLOYED. 

 

In Ontario, ONE-BUSINESS-PER-WEEK DISAPPEARS INTO TOTAL OBLIVION, and, by 2012, HALF THE BUSINESSES CLOSED THEIR DOORS.

Examples Of Destroyed Businesses

 

Quebec   ―  catastrophic business losses

 

 

Because of Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION in the PROVINCE OF QUEBEC, businesses operating in the Professional Lawn Care Industry were DESTROYED.

 

Because of the 2004-2006 PROVINCIAL PROHIBITION in Quebec, OVER 60 PER CENT of the businesses operating in the Professional Lawn Care Industry were ANNIHILATED, and HUNDREDS OF BUSINESSES DISAPPEARED INTO TOTAL OBLIVION.

 

Six years after PROHIBITION, the remaining businesses operating in the Professional Lawn Care Industry in Quebec have LOST UP TO 70 PER CENT OF THE BUSINESS THEY ONCE HAD.

 

It is INCONGRUOUS to believe that jurisdictions like Ontario will not suffer the same fate by 2015, especially with greater restrictions than Quebec.

The Myths About Banning Pesticides

 

Myth  ―  Pesticide Bans Protect Children

 

 

Safety assessments DO take children into consideration

 

 

PROHIBITION is somehow validated by CONCOCTING MYTHS with ALLEGATIONS like «  pesticide bans protect children  ».    [ ?!?! ]

 

This is WRONG !

 

Pest control products are SCIENTIFICALLY-SAFE, CAUSE NO HARM, and are NO THREAT TO CHILDREN.

 

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.

 

In fact, MEDICATION is the leading cause of poisoning in children.

 

Anti-Pesticide Activists ALLEGE that children are somehow MORE vulnerable to pest control products.

 

This is a MYTH !

Pesticide Bans Protect Children ?!?!

 

Government officials are THINKING TWICE

 

 

Government Officials are THINKING TWICE BEFORE BANNING PESTICIDES for the following reasons  ― 

 

Without pest control products, playing surfaces are a HAZARD TO EVERYONE, ESPECIALLY CHILDREN.

 

Without pest control products, CHILDREN ARE NOT KEPT SAFE FROM DANGEROUS PLAYING SURFACES.

 

Without pest control products, children are actually AT HIGH RISK of SLIPPING AND TRIPPING and becoming SERIOUSLY HURT.

 

Without pest control products, playing surfaces become GARBAGE DUMPS, and are a DANGER for children to play on. 

 

Without pest control products, playing surfaces become thin, and yellow, and OVER-RUN WITH WEEDS, INFESTED WITH INSECTS, and DISMALLY DESTROYED.

 

Without pest control products, turfgrass pests DISRUPT THE UNIFORMITY OF THE TURF and MAY AFFECT THE SAFETY and PLAYABILITY of the playing surface for footing, ball bounce, etc …

 

Without pest control products, playing surfaces become THIN AND YELLOW, and OVER-RUN WITH WEEDS and INFESTED WITH INSECTS, resulting in the DISMAL DESTRUCTION OF TURF PLAYING SURFACES.

 

Without pest control products, Government Officials BECOME LEGALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR HAZARDOUS SLIPPING AND TRIPPING CONDITIONS in sports turf that will THREATEN CHILDREN with serious injuries.

 

 

 

Pesticide Bans Protect Children ?!?!

 

Pesticides keep playing surfaces SAFE for children

 

 

WELL-MAINTAINED, THICKER, GREENER, and PEST-FREE outdoor playing surfaces, like home lawns, public green spaces, and sports fields, have MANY PRACTICAL BENEFITS.

 

CHILDREN need a CUSHION OF HIGH-QUALITY TURFGRASS when playing and running and falling.

 

WELL-MAINTAINED turfgrass playing surfaces act as a NATURAL CUSHION. 

 

WELL-MAINTAINED turfgrass is also an EFFECTIVE SPONGE for rain water.

 

A playing surface OVER-RUN WITH WEEDS and INFESTED WITH INSECTS provides NONE of these benefits.

 

When it rains, pest-infested playing surfaces become SLIPPERY MUD BOGS.

 

When dry, pest-infested playing surfaces become AS HARD AS CONCRETE.

 

Falling on SLIPPERY MUD or BAKED SOIL is the direct cause of BROKEN BONES, TWISTED ANKLES, and SKINNED KNEES.

 

Any trend favouring Pesticide-Free Maintenance will lead to GARBAGE DUMPS, DANGEROUS PLAYING SURFACES, and HURT CHILDREN.

 

 

 

Pesticide Bans Protect Children ?!?!

 

Jurisdictions that keep playing surfaces SAFE for children

 

 

There are dozens of jurisdictions that HAVE KEPT CHILDREN SAFE by STOPPING or RESCINDING or LIMITING Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION, or by granting Professional Lawn Care businesses with an EXCEPTION STATUS.

 

The following jurisdictions have KEPT CHILDREN SAFE  ―

 

●   Alberta ( Province )   ●   Altona ( Manitoba )   ●   Ashland ( Oregon )   ●   Beaumont ( Alberta )   ●   British Columbia ( Province )   ●   Calgary ( Alberta )   ●   Campbell River ( British Columbia )   ●   Chicago ( Illinois )   ●   Durango ( Colorado )   ●   Edmonton ( Alberta )   ●   Everett ( Washington )   ●   Guelph ( Ontario )   ●   Guelph-Eramosa ( Ontario )   ●   Kamloops ( British Columbia )   ●   Kelowna ( British Columbia )   ●   Merritt ( British Columbia )   ●   New Brunswick ( Province )   ●   Newfoundland & Labrador ( Province )   ●   Port Alberni ( British Columbia )   ●   Portage La Prairie ( Manitoba )   ●   Quebec ( Prohibition Invalidated When Lawsuit Defeated Ban )   ●   Regina ( Saskatchewan )   ●   Rossland ( British Columbia )   ●   Salmon Arm ( British Columbia )   ●   Scarborough ( Maine )   ●   Saint John’s ( Newfoundland & Labrador )   ●   Steinbach ( Manitoba )   ●   Vernon ( British Columbia )   ●   Winkler ( Manitoba ).

The Myths About Banning Pesticides

 

Myth  ―  Pesticide Bans Reduce Medical Problems

 

 

Where are the bodies of evidence and medical records ?

 

 

PROHIBITION is somehow validated by CONCOCTING MYTHS with ALLEGATIONS like «  pesticide use increases medical problems  ».    [ ?!?! ]

 

We say  …  SHOW US THE BODIES  …  Nobis Corpus ( Latin ).

 

Anti-Pesticide Activists are UNABLE To Provide Bodies, Bodies, Bodies.

 

The public must be warned that the issues concerning pest control products are CONTROVERSIAL only because of CONCOCTED ALLEGATIONS by Anti-Pesticide Activists about MEDICAL PROBLEMS and the IMAGINARY DANGER of pest control products that are TOTALLY FALSE, and are UNTRUE MIS-REPRESENTATIONS designed to ALARM and ENRAGE people into believing that PROHIBITION is somehow necessary.

 

Anti-Pesticide Activists ALLEGE that so-called « inconvenient studies » or « secret evidence » are somehow withheld by manufacturers from ALL the regulatory agencies in the world.

 

Unfortunately, Anti-Pesticide Activists are UNABLE to provide bodies, bodies, bodies.

 

Bodies of REAL evidence.

 

Bodies of REAL evidence, and NOT JUNK SCIENCE REPORTS that have been DOMESTICALLY AND INTERNATIONALLY REFUTED AND DISCREDITED.

 

Bodies of REAL evidence, and NOT JUNK SCIENCE REPORTS that have NEVER been made available for independent review.

 

Bodies of REAL evidence, and NOT JUNK SCIENCE REPORTS intended to DISCREDIT the work of REAL experts, such as Health Canada.

 

Bodies of REAL evidence, and NOT « secret evidence » or DEBUNKED REPORTS.

 

Bodies of REAL evidence, and NOT « secret evidence » from disgruntled former government officials who were terminated from employment and suddenly became anonymous « whistle-blowers » with UNVERIFIABLE stories.

 

More specifically, medical records, medical records, medical records.

 

More specifically, PROOF that studies are being somehow with-held from the ENTIRE WORLD.

 

Who are, or were, those people ALLEGEDLY harmed by pest control products ?

 

Where are the medical records ?

 

Where are the so-called « inconvenient studies » ?!?!

 

Make them available for public review.

 

We say  …  SHOW US THE BODIES.

 

Anti-Pesticide Activists say that there are so-called issues with pest control products.

 

Surely they can produce ONE medical record.

 

Anti-Pesticide Activists MUST STOP using « mythical growing bodies of research reports » that DO NOT EXIST.

 

Anti-Pesticide Activists MUST STOP using « secret evidence » and DEBUNKED REPORTS.

 

Anti-Pesticide Activists MUST STOP using TOTALLY FALSE and UNTRUE MIS-REPRESENTATIONS designed to alarm and enrage the public and enhance their BUSINESS, CASH-FLOW, PROFIT, or CELEBRITY.

 

Unfortunately, Anti-Pesticide Activists are UNABLE to provide bodies, bodies, bodies.

 

We are living in the DARK AGE OF ANTI-PESTICIDE TERRORISM where SOUND SCIENCE is trumped by JUNK SCIENCE and UNVERIFIABLE SECRET EVIDENCE.

 

 

 

Pesticide Bans Reduce Medical Problems ?!?!

 

Outrage over money needed for REAL medical problems

 

 

Health Care Observers have EXPRESSED OUTRAGE over the MISUSE OF DONATION MONEY by organizations like Canadian Cancer Society.

 

Canadian Cancer Society must provide INFORMATION AND CLARITY on its SQUANDERING and MISAPPROPRIATION OF MILLIONS OF DONATION DOLLARS.

 

Money that COULD HELP PEOPLE WITH REAL MEDICAL PROBLEMS is being MIS-USED to DISCREDIT Health Canada and to PROHIBIT products that have already been SCIENTIFICALLY-APPROVED by the HIGHEST QUALITY EXPERTS.

 

For example, during summer 2012, the society’s 8-week anti-pesticide advertising campaign in newspapers across British Columbia cost an estimated $250,000.

 

For example, in the past decade, Canadian Cancer Society has spent over $5,000,000 on needless anti-pesticide campaigns.

 

Canadian Cancer Society claims it fund-raises for only one reason  ―  to raise critical funds for its mission of eradicating cancer and improving the quality of life for those living with it.

 

Health Care Observers are concerned that the society is NOT LIVING UP TO ITS MISSION, and the campaign money could have otherwise been used to save lives, prevent cancer, and help those WITH REAL MEDICAL PROBLEMS.

 

People with REAL MEDICAL PROBLEMS are SUFFERING because of the CONSPIRACY TO PROHIBIT pest control products.

The Myths About Banning Pesticides

 

Myth  ―  Pesticide Bans Prevent Cancer

 

 

There is NO scientific proof that pesticides cause cancer

 

 

PROHIBITION is somehow validated by CONCOCTING MYTHS with ALLEGATIONS like «  pesticides cause cancer  ».    [ ?!?! ]

 

Activists DECEIVE the public into believing they have somehow researched the issues concerning pest control products  …  this is FALSE.

 

Anti-Pesticide Activists give the FALSE and FRAUDULENT impression that the public is being exposed to cancer-causing agents whenever a pest control product is used in the Urban Landscape.   

 

It is COMMON KNOWLEDGE that there are NO pest control products that are known or probable carcinogens.

 

It is a MYTH to believe that pest control products somehow cause cancer.

 

Environmental Protection Agency's ( EPA ) and Health Canada’s EXTENSIVE TOXICOLOGY DATABASES INDISPUTABLY PROVE that pest control products are SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE and DO NOT CAUSE CANCER ! 

 

Both EPA and Health Canada require 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.

 

Canadian Cancer Society, through its promotional literature, continues to insist there is a link between pest control products and cancer, despite the fact that its U.S. counterpart, American Cancer Society, DOES NOT SHARE THE SAME VIEWPOINT.

 

According to Paul Visentin  ―

 

Such a statement [ by Canadian Cancer Society ] would make one believe that all the products used in lawn care are linked to cancer, while the use of the same products in agriculture and forestry sector are not.

 

Paul Visentin, Director of Integrated Environmental Plant Management Association of Western Canada ( IEPMA ).

 

Health Canada, and NOT Anti-Pesticide Activists, has THE ESSENTIAL EXPERTISE on the subject of pest control products.

 

Anti-Pesticide Activists have 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.

 

Anti-Pesticide Activists are RIDICULOUSLY IMPLYING that their NON-EXPERT ASSESSMENT is somehow being withheld from Health Canada and EVERY other regulatory agency in the world.

 

There is NOT ONE KNOWN CANCER DEATH from the proper use of pest control products used in the Urban Landscape.

 

Pest control products are STRINGENTLY TESTED and REGULATED in order to ensure that they are SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE and CAUSE NO HARM.

 

Even Canadian Cancer Society states on several of its web-sites that scientific research DOES NOT PROVIDE A CONCLUSIVE LINK between pest control products and cancer.

 

Even some of Canadian Cancer Society’s HIGHEST-RANKING LOBBYISTS have stated that the connection between cancer and pesticides is NOT CONCLUSIVE.

 

 

CANADIAN CANCER SOCIETY    NO DIRECT PROOF PESTICIDES CAUSE CANCER ( Web-Page )

In 2007, the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the Pest Management Regulatory Agency of Health Canada issued a ruling that products like 2,4-D Herbicide ARE NOT CANCER-CAUSING IN HUMANS.

 

The World Health Organization only lists the common pest control product 2,4-D in the SAME CANCER-RISK CATEGORY AS PICKLED VEGETABLES AND CELL-PHONES.

 

International Agency for Research on Cancer ( IARC is part of the United Nation’s World Health Organization ) lists VERY FEW PESTICIDES as carcinogenic, or as probable or possible carcinogens, and NONE of these can be found among « cosmetic pesticides » used in the Urban Landscape.

 

Pest control products are SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE, and NO HARM WILL OCCUR when they are used according to label directions.

The Myths About Banning Pesticides

 

Myth  ―  Cancer Is Increasing

 

 

Scientific proof indicates there is NO increase in cancer

 

 

PROHIBITION is somehow validated by CONCOCTING MYTHS with ALLEGATIONS like «  cancer rates are increasing  ».    [ ?!?! ]

 

This is FALSE !

 

Cancer rates are NOT RISING !

 

ALLEGATIONS by Anti-Pesticide Activists about CANCER INCREASES and the IMAGINARY DANGER of pest control products are TOTALLY FALSE, and are UNTRUE MIS-REPRESENTATIONS designed to ALARM and ENRAGE the public into believing that Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION is somehow necessary.

 

Why does anyone even bothering to listen these guys ?

 

According to a REAL EXPERT, Dr. Leonard Ritter,  …  just because there has been a 30 per cent increase in deaths from cancer in Canada does NOT mean there is any need for concern  ― 

 

The reason for that increase is due to an AGING POPULATION and an INCREASING POPULATION. 

 

When you allow for that, there’s NO INCREASE AT ALL.

 

Dr. Leonard Ritter is Chair Professor Emeritus of Toxicology, School of Environmental Sciences, University of Guelph, and Executive Director, Canadian Network of Toxicology Centres, with 35 years of experience in the field of toxicology and pesticide safety.

WILLIAM H. GATHERCOLE AND NORAH G

 

 

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 pledges to deliver reports that are worthy of peoples’ time and of peoples’ concern, reports that might ordinarily never have breached the parapet.

 

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.
