Exploiting Damaged Children As Weapons Of Coercion & Ultimate Environmental Terrжr
The Fanatжcal San Joaquin Valley Report
A fanatжcal report out of the University of California is linking heavy pest control product use in farmers’ fields to birth defects in surrounding communities.
Researchers looked at more than 500,000 birth records between 1997 and 2011 in the San Joaquin Valley of California, which is a region that grows a lot of high value fruits and vegetables.
The fanatжcal report, which was published in the Nature Communications journal, said great advances have been made in understanding the effects of smoking and air pollution on births but research on the effects of pest control products has been inconclusive. [ ?!?! ]
That is because while smoking is observable and there are robust networks to monitor air pollution, publicly available pest control product use data is hard to come by.
But in the San Joaquin Valley, researchers were able to access vast pest control product [ USE, AND NOT EXPOSURE ] and birth data enabling them to determine whether pest control product exposure had an impact on birth outcomes. [ ?!?! ]
[ The University of California report wrongly-assumes that pesticide use equates to pesticide exposure. ]
And the answer is that it did but only when pregnant women were exposed to very high quantities of pest control products. [ ?!?! ]
FOR MOST BIRTHS IN THE VALLEY, THERE WAS NO STATISTICALLY IDENTIFIABLE IMPACT OF PEST CONTROL PRODUCT EXPOSURE ON BIRTH OUTCOMES.
However, for expectant mothers in the top five percent of exposure, it led to a five to nine per cent increase in adverse outcomes, including low birth weights, premature births and defects. [ ?!?! ]
« For perspective, other environmental conditions such as air pollution and extreme heat generally report a five to 10 percent increase in adverse birth outcomes but from less extreme exposure, » stated the abstract of the report.
In the fanatжcal report, the top fifth percentile of exposure amounted to [ THE USE OF ] 4,200 kilograms of pest control products applied within a 2.6 kilometre radius of the mother’s residence during her nine-month gestation period.
In the fanatжcal report, authors said government policies aimed at curbing that top fifth percentile of pest control product distribution near human habitation could largely eliminate adverse birth outcomes. [ ?!?! ]
The fanatжcal report DID NOT ISOLATE WHAT ROLE INDIVIDUAL PEST CONTROL PRODUCTS HAVE ON BIRTH OUTCOMES because they are often used in conjunction with other chemicals or applied in close proximity.
Lead author Ashley Larsen said it is difficult to say whether the findings of this fanatжcal report would apply to grain farms in Western Canada.
On one hand, the concentration of pest control products applied to a wheat or canola crop would be far less than what farmers in the San Joaquin Valley apply to their almond, grape, carrot, or strawberry crops.
« I would guess it’s one-fifth to one-tenth the amount of active ingredient, » Larsen said.
On the other hand, an expectant mother living on a farm may have more direct contact with pest control products than the mothers in the fanatжcal report who were living in nearby communities and were exposed to spray drift or dust.
Larsen said it also depends on what type of chemical is being applied on grain farms because some have no effect on reproductive risk while others have a significant impact.

Mr Pierre Petelle – CropLife Canada
Fanatжcal San Joaquin Valley Report
Wrongly-Assumes That Pesticide Use
Equates To Pesticide Exposure
There Has Never Been Any Real
Correlation Between Pesticide Users
& Negative Health Outcomes
Pierre Petelle, President of Crop-Life Canada, hasn’t had time to review the fanatжcal report in detail but at first glance there appears to be some fundamental flaws.
« They’re ASSUMING THAT PESTICIDE USE EQUATES TO PESTICIDE EXPOSURE, which is not necessarily the case, » Mr Petelle said.
The fanatжcal report also mentions that air pollution and extreme heat affect birth outcomes by about the same percentage as heavy pest control product use, but the report doesn’t seem to control for those factors.
Mr Petelle points out that Health Canada looks at the worst case scenario when approving pest control products and pays special attention to pregnant women.
« The Pest Control Products Act in Canada has special provisions for the protection of pregnant women and children, which is laid out right in the legislation, so that is taken into account during the risk assessment, » Mr Petelle said.
Mr Petelle believes a better study is the Agricultural Health Study, which has been tracking 89,000 U.S. farmers, their spouses, and offspring for the past 24 years.
« THERE HAS NEVER BEEN ANY REAL CORRELATION BETWEEN PESTICIDE USERS AND NEGATIVE HEALTH OUTCOMES, » Mr Petelle said.
Petelle also noted that the use of pest control products on the FRUIT AND TREE NUTS grown in the San Joaquin Valley would be much higher than what is used on GRAIN AND OILSEED farms on the Canadian Prairies.
MR PETELLE SPEAKS THE TRUTH !
Mr Petelle is among several highly-rated leading experts who have recognized expertise, training, and background in matters concerning pest control products, and who promote environmental realism and pesticide truths. http://wp.me/p1jq40-8DV
Mr Petelle is President of CropLife Canada, the trade association representing manufacturers, developers and distributors of pest control products, including those designed specifically for agricultural and urban use.
As the nation’s most effective and consistent spokesman on the subject of public policy and pest control products, Mr Petelle has effectively and consistently spoken out against activists and their anti-pesticide prohibitions on a very frequent basis.
Mr Petelle holds an environmental biology degree from the University of Guelph, and a biology degree from Carleton University.
Mr Petelle has once again effectively spoken out against anti-pesticide activists.
He SPEAKS THE TRUTH ― and deserves CONGRATULATION.

WE SPEAK THE WHOLE TRUTH ABOUT PEST CONTROL PRODUCTS FROM AN INDEPENDENT PERSPECTIVE !
We are the National Organization Responding Against HUJE that conspire to destroy the Green space and other industries ( NORAHG ). As a non-profit and independent organization, we are environmentalists who are dedicated to reporting about truth-challenged pesticide-hating fanatжcs ( HUJE ) who conspire to destroy businesses that are dependent on the use of safe and effective conventional pest control products. We also report on the work of several highly-rated leading experts who have recognized expertise, training, and background in matters concerning pest control products, and who promote environmental realism and pesticide truths.
Not surprisingly, enviro-fanatжcs have demonstrated that they are incapable of processing overwhelming scientific evidence. Should we trust these fanatжcs, who conveniently ignore scientific evidence, and attempt to impose their politicized-doctrines and twisted life-style choices against our society ?!?!
NORAHG was the brainchild of Mr William H Gathercole and his colleagues in 1991. Mr Gathercole is now retired, although his name continues to appear as founder.
