Pesticide Ban : India Council for Medical Research tells Supreme Court “Only 20 of suspected 50,654 endosulfan victims had pesticide traces”

ICMR opposes endosulfan ban | Deccan Chronicle

In another shock to Kerala, the Indian Council for Medical Research (ICMR) has told the Supreme Court that only 20 of the suspected 50,654 endosulfan victims sampled in the entire country showed dangerous traces of the pesticide.

This constitutes only a negligible 0.04 percent of the suspected victims sampled in the entire country between October 2006 and March 2011.

The report, contrary to Kerala’s expectations, has not favoured a national ban on endosulfan.

Nonetheless, it has favoured the continuance of the ban in Kerala and Karnataka saying that the ‘unscientific’ use of the pesticide had caused problems in some parts of the states.

A nationwide ban, the report said, was not advisable primarily because an alternative to endosulfan was not only costly but also unsafe.

No wedding bells for Chakkittapara youth, thanks to endosulfan

June 28, 2011 By Manu Bharat DC Kozhikode

The youth of Chakkittapara in Kozhikode are not getting suitable brides and grooms, thanks to the campaign that the panchayat is endosulfan affected.

Endosulfan was sprayed using hand pump in 2002 and 2003 at the Perambra Estate of the Plantation Corporation situated in the panchayat.

“With the news spreading that the panchayat is an endosulfan affected area, people from other places who had initiated alliances with those living here are backing out,” said Ms Subaida Majeed, vice president of the Chakkittapara grama panchayat.

She added that many engagements had been cancelled because of this reason.

“And the saddest part is that no scientific study has been conducted here to prove that the panchayat is pesticide affected,” said Ms Subaida.

“The people projected as victims of the pesticide spraying had physical disabilities 20 years ago,” said Mr K. Sunil, president of the panchayat.
