Why listen to pesticide-hating fanatics when REAL experts speak the truth ?
According to Dr Leonard Ritter ―
• Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma rates, the cancer most often associated with pest control products, are lower on the province of Prince Edward Island than anywhere else in Canada.
• Pest control products are not the leading cause of cancer on Prince Edward Island.
• Roundup is considered to be among the safest herbicides in the world, and that continues to be the prevailing opinion.
• There is NO EVIDENCE that the safe application of agricultural pest control products causes cancer.
Pest Control Products
Are NOT The Leading Cause Of Cancer
On Prince Edward Island
There Is NO EVIDENCE That
The Safe Application Of Agricultural
Pest Control Products Causes Cancer

Selected And Adapted Excerpts
Dr Len Ritter, Professor of Toxicology, says ―
Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma rates,
the cancer most often associated with
pest control products, are LOWER on Prince
Edward Island than anywhere else in the country
There is NO EVIDENCE that the safe application of agricultural pest control products causes cancer, says the prominent toxicology professor from Ontario.
Dr Len Ritter, a Professor Emeritus at the University of Guelph, was in Charlottetown to speak to the Prince Edward Island Potato Board about his research into pest control products.
Ritter points to statistics released recently by the Canadian Cancer Society that show cancer rates are expected to jump 40 per cent in Prince Edward Island by 2030.
According to the report, that rise in cases will be led by upsurges in prostate and colorectal cancer cases in an aging population.
Dr Ritter points out that non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma rates, the cancer most often associated with pest control products, are lower in Prince Edward Island than anywhere else in the country when it comes to men, and tied with Quebec for lowest rates in Canada among women.
Dr Ritter says if pest control products were as bad as some say they are, rates of that type of cancer would be higher.
According to Dr Ritter ―
You see the amount [ on Prince Edward Island ] is the lowest in the country.
If pesticides were driving it, you would expect the reverse to be true.
The toxicology professor says he doesn’t represent the Canadian Cancer Society, but does rely on its data, as well as data from Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency ( PMRA ).
According to Dr Ritter ―
My role is not to advocate the use of pesticides, not to promote a pesticide ban.
It’s to introduce evidence-based information that I hope will allow people to enter debate on a more informed basis.
Prince Edward Island is on the high end of cancer rates when it comes to lung cancer and melanoma, which Ritter attributes to smoking and exposure to sun.
Ritter said that the International Agency for Research on Cancer ( IARC ) has identified concerns over Roundup, a commonly used herbicide.
[ See below for background information about IARC. ]
Roundup is used for killing grass before a potato field is plowed under.
It’s a legitimate question … a complex issue.
( But ) it was always considered to be among the safest herbicides in the world, and that continues to be the prevailing opinion.
Greg Donald, general manager of the Prince Edward Island Potato Board, said farmers in the province follow Health Canada and PMRA guidelines, and do not spray any more than they have to.
According to Greg Donald ―
There is a belief that farmers use pest control products because they want to.
They are a tool amongst a number of other things that they use that they need to grow healthy and safe food.
Mr Donald said, adding that growers are concerned about the public perception about pest control products.
According to Mr Donald ―
We wanted to get the facts.
Folks who use these chemicals are trained and use them according to the label.

The Safety & Effectiveness Of Pest Control Products Is NOT A Debatable Issue
To fight the war against Anti-Pesticide Terrorism, you need facts !
Overwhelming scientific research has clearly demonstrated that that have NOT been linked to ANY issues related to health and environment.
Pest control products do NOT cause cancer.
If some pesticide-hating fanatics were not so scientifically illiterate, they would know that scientific research shows that, as reported through EPA’s and Health Canada’s vast toxicology database, NO harm will occur when pest control products are applied properly in the urban landscape or by the agriculture industry.
All pest control products have been evaluated for their carcinogenic potential. http://wp.me/p1jq40-6yf
Even Canadian Cancer Society’s own web-sites state repeatedly that scientific research does not provide a conclusive link between pest control products and cancer. http://wp.me/P1jq40-4qC
Scientific research proves that pest control products cause no harm and do not cause cancer.
Pest control products causing cancer IS A MYTH. http://wp.me/P1jq40-2nl
There are thousands of known deaths per year from known cancer-causing factors such as unhealthy diet, physical inactivity, excess body weight, alcohol consumption, and over-exposure to the sun.
There are NONE related to pest control products, which are SCIENTIFICALLY-SAFE, and will NOT CAUSE HARM TO PEOPLE, ANIMALS, OR THE ENVIRONMENT. http://wp.me/p1jq40-7HR http://wp.me/P1jq40-2ha http://wp.me/p1jq40-5ni
IARC & Its Distorted, Biased, & Prejudiced Pesticide-Hating Fanaticism
The Lethal Dose For Ingesting Roundup Is The Volume Of A Carton Of Milk !
To fight the war against Anti-Pesticide Terrorism, you need even more facts !
ROUNDUP WILL NOT CAUSE HARM AND WILL NOT CAUSE CANCER !
International Agency for Research on Cancer ( IARC ) is RIDICULOUSLY IMPLYING that its false-evaluation of GLYPHOSATE ( Roundup ) is somehow being withheld from EPA, Health Canada, and EVERY other science-based regulatory agency in the world.
IARC ( a.k.a. World Health Organization ) is NOT a government regulatory agency.
It has NO regulatory authority whatsoever.
IARC most certainly is NOT a science, NOT a research, and NOT a health organization.
Rather, IARC tends to operate as an anti-pesticide & environmental-fanatic organization.
Furthermore, IARC’s false-evaluations deliberately overstate the risks with arbitrary and selective « cherry picking » of data.
IARC has NOT even conducted any original research that reveals any new information.
It is clear that IARC has an agenda-driven bias for reasons of mere pesticide-hating fanaticism and politicized science.
IARC IS NOT TO BE TRUSTED !
Only a small number of IARC’s false-evaluations have been reviewed by REAL AND INDEPENDENT expert-scientists, leading observers to conclude that its evaluations are colored by bias and are swayed by fanatic-activism.
Consequently, REAL expert-scientists with direct experience with IARC have dissociated themselves from this fanatic-organization.
THE PESTICIDE-HATING IARC HAS BEEN DISCREDITED !
Scientific research shows that, as reported through EPA’s and Health Canada’s vast toxicology database, NO harm will occur when pest control products like GLYPHOSATE are applied properly.
All of these products have been evaluated for their carcinogenic potential. http://wp.me/p1jq40-6yf
Even Canadian Cancer Society’s own web-sites state, repeatedly, that scientific research does NOT provide a conclusive link between pest control products and cancer. http://wp.me/p1jq40-4qc
In fact, scientific research proves that pest control products will cause NO harm and do NOT cause cancer.
PESTICIDES CAUSING CANCER IS A MYTH ! http://wp.me/p1jq40-2nl
The current IARC evaluation of ingredients like GLYPHOSATE is limited at best, and is NOT reliable !
IARC has conveniently disregarded dozens of scientific studies, specifically genetic toxicity studies, that support the conclusion GLYPHOSATE is NOT a human health risk !
According to overwhelming scientific evidence, NO replicated scientifically-valid study has found any human harm from GLYPHOSATE.
IARC’s false-evaluation has been refuted by REAL experts.
EPA, Health Canada, and other science-based regulatory agencies have clearly demonstrated that Roundup is LESS TOXIC THAN Aspirin, baking soda, caffeine, cannabis, nicotine, table salt, and Tylenol.
Roundup is NO MORE TOXIC THAN ethanol ( an edible beverage constituent in beer, wine, and other intoxicating beverages ), mouthwash ( Listerine ), and Vitamin C.
Roundup is scientifically-safe, practically non-toxic, will cause NO harm, will NOT cause cancer, and will NOT cause irreversible damage if consumed orally.
The probable lethal dose for a person ingesting the concentrated form of GLYPHOSATE is ONE LITRE, the volume of an entire milk carton.
By comparison, drinking SIX LITRES of water, a fluid that is seemingly harmless, can lead to water poisoning or dilutional hyponatremia, which is a potentially fatal disturbance in brain functions.
In essence, water is only FIVE TIMES SAFER than 2,4-D or Roundup.
THE PESTICIDE-HATING IARC IS NOT TO BE TRUSTED !
Manufacturers have no other recourse than to LITIGATE against IARC !

The Whole Truth About PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND ( PEI ) …
Prohibition Imposed By Prince Edward Island Is Limited
Most Active Ingredients Are Permitted, Except 2,4-D
Professional Lawn Care Businesses Are Granted An Exception Status
A province-wide prohibition removed 240 products from use by consumers.
Businesses operating in the Professional Lawn Care Industry have been provided with an EXCEPTION STATUS.
2,4-D herbicide is prohibited for use by either consumers or businesses on lawns, but it is ALLOWED for use in the Golf Industry.
Prince Edward Island has indicated that the Golf Industry Exception Status will eventually be REVOKED.
Here is what the Government of Prince Edward Island said ―
We’re allowing it on GOLF COURSES because it’s a major industry for P.E.I. and we’re working towards getting off it.
What we’re basically saying is you [ the GOLF INDUSTRY ] better find a way to get off it over the next couple of years.
Prince Edward Island ( PEI or P.E.I. ) is a Canadian Atlantic province consisting of an island of the same name, as well as other islands.
This maritime province is the smallest in the nation in both land area and population ( excluding the northern territories ), and has about 122,000 residents.
The island has a few other names ― « Garden of the Gulf », referring to the pastoral scenery and lush agricultural lands throughout the province; and « Birthplace of Confederation », referring to the Charlottetown Conference in 1864.
Prince Edward Island’s prohibition against pest control products came into effect April 1, 2010.
Prohibition differed from legislation proposed in the nearby Province of Nova Scotia, meaning a different set of lawn care products could be sold in either province.
Prince Edward Island’s banned list included more than 240 products, many of which contained the chemical 2,4–D.
Prohibition affected products sold in either concentrated or granular form.
Prince Edward Island’s prohibition mirrored the legislation imposed in the adjoining Province of New Brunswick.
The Government of Prince Edward Island stopped short of proposing a TOTAL PROHIBITION of pest control products.
In Prince Edward Island, several organizations have ILLEGALLY INTERFERED IN PARTISAN POLITICS by conspiring to prohibit against pest control products used in the Urban Landscape.
They have squandered and misappropriated public and government funds in order to support subversive acts of anti-pesticide terrorism.
There are four prominent Anti-Pesticide & Environmental-Terrorist Organizations operating on Prince Edward Island ―
• Canadian Cancer Society ― Prince Edward Island Division
• Green Party of Canada ( a.k.a. Green Party of Prince Edward Island, Pesticide Free PEI, & Earth Action )
• New Democratic Party
• Sierra Club of Canada ― Atlantic Chapter
They are listed among the nation’s most notorious organizations. http://wp.me/P1jq40-48S

Communities and businesses are being HARMED and DESTROYED and RAPED by LUNATIC-TERRORISTS who ARBITRARILY AND RECKLESSLY IMPOSE PROHIBITIONS against pest control products used in the Urban Landscape and by the Agriculture Industry, and who PERPETRATE OTHER ACTS OF ENVIRONMENTAL TERRORISM.
We are living in the 9|11 Era of Anti Pesticide & Environmental Terrorism where at least ONE SUBVERSIVE ACT OF TERRORISM is perpetrated EVERY SINGLE DAY by LUNATIC-TERRORISTS.
A LUNATIC is a person whose actions and manner are marked by extreme recklessness.
The RECKLESS ACTS OF SUBVERSION by these LUNATIC-TERRORISTS has led to the ARBITRARY IMPOSITION of Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION in several jurisdictions throughout North America.
The result was CATASTROPHIC CARNAGE !
Because of LUNATIC-TERRORISTS, provinces like Ontario now have a TRAIL OF ECONOMIC DESTRUCTION WITH HUNDREDS OF SMALL BUSINESSES DESTROYED and THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE OUT OF WORK, a MORE DANGEROUS OUTDOOR ENVIRONMENT, and a BLACK MARKET IN PESTICIDES.
Only TRUE LUNATICS would wish to create a TRAIL OF ECONOMIC DESTRUCTION WITH HUNDREDS OF SMALL BUSINESSES DESTROYED and THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE OUT OF WORK.
Because of LUNATIC-TERRORISTS, we are living in the DARK AGE OF ANTI PESTICIDE TERRORISM where sound science is trumped by FAKE SCIENTISTS, JUNK SCIENCE and UNVERIFIABLE SECRET EVIDENCE through FABRICATION, INNUENDO, and INTERNET RUMOR ― scientific research PROVES that pest control products will CAUSE NO HARM and can be USED SAFELY.
An informed public is better able to protect itself and its communities and businesses from LUNATIC-TERRORISTS who are THE LEAST QUALIFIED TO PROVIDE ANY ADVICE about pest control products or the environment.
NORAHG is the National Organization Responding Against HUJE that seek to harm the Green space and other industries, and the well-being of our communities.
NORAHG morally represents the VAST SILENT MAJORITY of people associated with turf and ornamental plant maintenance who are OPPOSED to LUNATIC-TERRORISTS and their Anti Pesticide PROHIBITIONS, resulting in the CLOSURE or ABANDONMENT of green spaces under the RIDICULOUS PRETEXT CONCOCTED BY LUNATICS 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 PESTICIDE FREE FAILURES, as well as the work of RESPECTED & HIGHLY RATED EXPERTS who promote ENVIRONMENTAL REALISM and PESTICIDE TRUTHS.
NORAHG strikes back against the MYTHS concerning the need for prohibition against pest control products. THE MYTHS ABOUT BANNING PESTICIDES.
NORAHG RESPONDS on behalf of the VAST SILENT MAJORITY of THE PUBLIC THAT DOES NOT WANT PESTICIDE BANS, and SUPPORTS those who work in the Professional Lawn Care Industry, the Golf Industry, and the Agriculture Industry.
NORAHG is opposed to PESTICIDE FREE jurisdictions where LUNATIC-TERRORISTS have DOOMED CHILDREN to SUFFER INJURIES since Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION inevitably leads to public and residential green spaces that become DANGEROUS AND PEST-INFESTED GARBAGE DUMPS.
Go to the following links …
NORAHG is concerned that, because of PESTICIDE FREE MAINTENANCE of parks and sports fields, CHILDREN ARE AT HIGHER RISK OF SUFFERING INJURIES with DANGEROUS PLAYING SURFACES CREATED BY #@!!% PESTICIDE BANS.
NORAHG pledges to deliver comprehensive 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.
Force Of Nature was launched by NORAHG for CONTINUOUS transmission on the Internet on January 1st, 2009 ― however, the VERY FIRST Stand-Alone Force Of Nature Report was issued on September 19th, 2008.
On March 15th, 2010, Uncle Adolph independently launched The Pesticide Truths, an easy-to-use Web-Site that collects relevant reports of information right-off-the-press.
Pesticide Truths, Uncle Adolph, and Force Of Nature, in some ways, are like Google for everything concerning the SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES of Anti-Pesticide and Enviro-Lunatic Terrorists.
