2,4-D Herbicide

 

Scientifically Safe & Causes No Harm

 

 

Of all pest control products, 2,4-D HERBICIDE IS THE MOST HATED by Anti-Pesticide Terrorist-Activists. 

 

Actually, 2,4-D is not only among the MOST STRINGENTLY TESTED pest control products, it is among the MOST THOROUGHLY REVIEWED and RE-EVALUATED.

 

In fact, 2,4-D is SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE and CAUSES NO HARM.

 

Activists FALSELY ALLEGE having some form of « secret evidence » proving that 2,4-D is not safe.

 

In fact, they have NOTHING but CONCOCTED STORIES, PUBLIC PARANOIA and ENVIRONMENTAL TERROR    these are the ONLY weapons that activists have against 2,4-D.

 

Anti-Pesticide Activists CONVENIENTLY IGNORE the fact that pest control products like 2,4-D are HEALTH-CANADA-APPROVED, FEDERALLY-LEGAL, SCIENTIFICALLY-SAFE, PRACTICALLY-NON-TOXIC, and CAUSE NO HARM.

 

Anti-Pesticide Activists also CONVENIENTLY IGNORE the expertise of ANY leading authority on matters concerning pest control products.

 

They do so when it suits THEM !

2,4-D Herbicide

 

Unblemished Safety Record

 

Overview Of Facts

 

 

2,4-D has 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.

 

2,4-D DOES NOT CAUSE CANCER.

 

Both United States Environmental Protection Agency and Health Canada conducted reviews of the scientific literature and concluded there was NO EVIDENCE OF A LINK BETWEEN CANCER AND 2,4-D.

 

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

 

2,4-D is LESS TOXIC THAN PICKLES.

 

In fact 

 

2,4-D is PRACTICALLY NON-TOXIC.

 

2,4-D is LESS TOXIC THAN TABLE SALT.

 

2,4-D is LESS TOXIC THAN BAKING SODA.

 

2,4-D is LESS TOXIC THAN TYLENOL.

 

2,4-D is LESS TOXIC THAN ASPIRIN.

 

2,4-D has LESS IMPACT THAN SOAP.

 

2,4-D is probably THE MOST studied and best understood of ANY chemical    not just pesticide    in existence.

 

2,4-D has been the subject of over 40,000 studies.

 

2,4-D has been RE-EVALUATED 17 TIMES, and each time passing tougher scrutiny.

 

2,4-D Herbicide DOES NOT contain harmful dioxins.

 

2,4-D is NOT Herbicide Orange.

Researched Ad Infinitum

 

2000 07 22

 

 

On July 22nd, 2000, The Industry Task Force II On 2,4-D Research Data issued a statement to the Canada’s Federal Standing Committee On Environment And Sustainable Development 

 

The toxicology database alone exceeds 4,000 PEER-REVIEWED, PUBLISHED STUDIES, PLUS HUNDREDS OF UNPUBLISHED STUDIES that the manufacturers must fund for the various regulatory agencies throughout the world.

 

Additionally, there are now MORE THAN 100 PEER-REVIEWED, PUBLISHED EPIDEMIOLOGIC ( HUMAN ) STUDIES pertinent to 2,4-D.

 

If anything, 2,4-D SEEMS TO BE RESEARCHED AD INFINITUM.

 

The reason anti-pesticide activists keep insisting on more research is that they either have little comprehension of the extent of the current data package or the fact that the weight of today’s scientific evidence simply does not support their allegations.

On July 23rd, 2004, the following statement appeared in National Post 

 

The negative campaign against chemicals by activists, certain academics and those in the media who blithely take up their cause has long since passed the stage of rational risk assessment.

 

It has morphed into an ideological witch-hunt, in which chemicals such as 2-4,D, used to control broadleaf weeds such as dandelions, are considered guilty even after being PROVEN INNOCENT 4,000 TIMES.

 

Activists cynically and repeatedly exploit public fear, diverting scarce research dollars away from meaningful areas of inquiry into ones with no value.

The Industry Task Force II On 2,4-D Research Data

 

2004 05 05

 

 

On May 5th, 2004, Donald L. Page of The Industry Task Force II On 2,4-D Research Data issued the following statements that were published in National Post 

 

 

The Ontario College of Family Physicians[ OCFP, an Anti-Pesticide Terrorist-Organizations ] recent review on the effects of pesticides on humans raises important questions about Canada’s scientific and regulatory process.

 

More importantly, it raises concerns about the ability of trusted professional bodies to ERODE THE PUBLIC’S FAITH in this process.

 

Canada has a COMPREHENSIVE REGULATORY SYSTEM TO PROTECT CANADIANS from a wide range of potentially harmful substances.

 

In the case of pesticides, a product is acceptable for use only after demonstrating that it DOES NOT CAUSE ANY UNACCEPTABLE HEALTH RISK, including CANCER.

 

The system is effective because of rigorous review processes whereby all the applicable science is examined to ensure the best and most evidentiary decision on what is safe and what is not.

 

When other bodies [ Anti-Pesticide Terrorist-Organizations ], particularly those from a SUPPOSED science-based discipline, follow a less stringent process to produce and promote a [ so-called ] comprehensive review, « we no longer give Canadians informed decisions based on the weight of evidence ».

 

In the OCFP’s review, A LARGE BODY OF EXTREMELY IMPORTANT AND WIDELY RECOGNIZED RESEARCH IS IGNORED.

 

In fact, the OCFP appears to have committed the ultimate transgression in scientific reporting    TO SELECTIVELY CHOOSE RESEARCH THAT SUPPORTS ONE’S HYPOTHESIS [ i.e. Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION is somehow necessary ].

 

And even worse, to SELECTIVELY PICK INFORMATION from within research studies. 

 

Although the OCFP SINGLED OUT 2,4-D FOR SPECIAL ATTENTION, recent reviews of 2,4-D by regulatory agencies such as the World Health Organization, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the European Commission CAME TO CONCLUSIONS VERY DIFFERENT from those reached by OCFP.

 

These three agencies    which are mandated to protect human health    agree that 2,4-D IS NOT AN ANIMAL CARCINOGEN, MUTAGEN OR TERATOGEN.

 

Furthermore, NOT ONE REGULATORY AGENCY IN THE WORLD CLASSIFIES 2,4-D AS A HUMAN CARCINOGEN. 

 

These reviews included all pertinent epidemiologic and toxicology data and offer conclusions based on the weight of the total evidence.

 

Given their prominence, one can only assume they [ World Health Organization, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the European Commission ] were not included because they in no way support the OCFP’s conclusion. 

 

The U.S. National Cancer Institute [ NCI ] has spent 20 years and millions of dollars testing for any link between 2,4-D and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

 

Its analysis concluded that there is NO ASSOCIATION between non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and EVER HAVING USED 2,4-D.

 

More importantly, NCI researchers concluded 

 

  while some pesticides may present a CANCER RISK to humans, many, maybe even most, PESTICIDES DO NOT.

 

The OCFP review COMPLETELY IGNORES this landmark study.

 

The OCFP review has Canadians believe that populations exposed to pesticides can  expect a higher rate of cancer and other health problems than the general population.  [ ?!?! ]

 

This simply flies in the face of many studies that demonstrate there is NO SUCH RELATIONSHIP.

 

To the contrary, a 20-year cohort study of over 33,000 Florida pesticide workers cited by OCFP actually found the overall incidence of cancer among the pesticide applicators to be significantly LOWER than the general Florida population, and the applicators to be in SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER HEALTH.

 

On page 36 of the [ OCFP ] report, the authors pull one data element from the 1994 Morrison study of 155,000 farmers in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta.

 

But they [ OCFP ] NEGLECT TO INFORM THE READER that this population actually lives longer than the average Canadian, has a lower incidence of cancer, and significantly fewer deaths from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

 

Other major studies have also shown that populations of applicators, farmers, and chemical workers who actually manufacture 2,4-D products have an overall mortality from cancer BELOW that of the general population.

 

It is puzzling why the authors of the OCFP review chose NOT TO INCLUDE these and similar findings.

 

It is not in the public interest to MIS-REPRESENT THE SCIENCE when science is the fundamental basis for our decision-making.

 

Doctors and scientists charged with protecting our health SHOULD MAKE DECISIONS ON THE BASIS OF THE WEIGHT OF EVIDENCE.

 

The  OCFP report fails that critical test.

DISGRACEFUL & UNSCIENTIFIC Article

 

Journal of Paediatrics and Child Health

 

2006 04 00

 

 

In April 2006, a DISGRACEFULLY FALSE and UNSCIENTIFIC article was published in Journal of Paediatrics and Child Health.

 

The authors made the following statement 

 

2,4-D can be persuasively linked to cancers, neurological impairment and reproductive problems.    [ ?!?! ]

 

 

The April 2006 article was an ASSESSMENT designed to ARTIFICIALLY PROMOTE an Anti-Pesticide Agenda.

 

It was NOT the result of ANY scientific research.

 

The two authors who wrote the April 2006 had ABSOLUTELY NO competent expertise, recognized training, or background, in matters concerning pest control products.

 

Both were well-know Anti-Pesticide Activists who were paid to CONCOCT this article by Canadian Association of Physician for the Environment, a Lobbying and Fund-Raising Organization.

 

Additionally, both authors had ABSOLUTELY NO affiliation with Canadian Paediatric Society.

 

Consequently, on September 26th, 2007, Canadian Paediatric Society ( CPS ) OFFICIALLY WARNED Anti-Pesticide Activists TO STOP USING THIS ARTICLE TO VALIDATE THEIR ANTI-PESTICDE AGENDA 

 

The study referred to was published in Paediatrics & Child Health, which is the journal of the Canadian Paediatric Society, by authors who have no affiliation with the CPS.

 

It was not written by the Canadian Paediatric Society, and does not reflect the opinion of the CPS.

 

Currently, we do not have any position statements on pesticide use.

 

The CPS should not be cited as this information.

 

This has been communicated to the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment.

 

 

[  Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment ( CAPE ) is an Anti-Pesticide and Environmental-Terrorist Organization.  CAPE is also a FUND-RAISING, PROFIT-SEEKING, and LOBBYING organization, and it is NOT a science, research, or health organization.  It is listed among CANADA’S PROMINENT ANTI-PESTICIDE & ENVIRONMENTAL-TERRORIST ORGANIZATIONS.  CAPE is presently UNDER INVESTIGATION FOR CHARITY FRAUD AND CONSPIRACY.  CAPE is a PRINCIPAL ARCHITECT IN THE CONSPIRACY TO PROHIBIT against pest control products used in the Urban Landscape.  Its ANTI-PESTICIDE TERRORIST ACTS OF SUBVERSION HAVE EXTENSIVELY DAMAGED the Professional Lawn Care Industry.  The VAST MAJORITY of CAPE members ARE NOT EVEN PHYSICIANS.  In fact, CAPE represents an INFINITESIMALLY SMALL number of doctors.  CAPE merely represents LESS THAN 4 PER CENT of all doctors in Canada.  CAPE DOES NOT operate as a physicians' organization    it is operated by a handful of Non-Expert Fund-Raisers, like Gideon Forman, who are PAID-FOR-PROFIT as SUBVERSIVE ILLEGAL LOBBYISTS.  ]

Data Do Not Support Links To Cancer

 

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

 

2007 08 08

 

 

On August 8th, 2007, United States Environmental Protection Agency  ( US EPA ) issued the following statement 

 

 

This notice announces EPA’s Decision NOT TO INITIATE A SPECIAL REVIEW for 2,4-D, 2,4-DB and 2,4-DP. 

 

Based on extensive scientific review of many epidemiology and animal studies, the Agency finds that the weight of the evidence DOES NOT SUPPORT a conclusion that 2,4-D, 2,4-DB and 2,4-DP are likely human carcinogens.

 

The Agency has determined that the existing data DO NOT SUPPORT a conclusion that links human cancer to 2,4-D exposure.

 

This conclusion applies to 2,4-DB and 2,4-DP because they were considered for Special Review based solely on their similarity to 2,4-D.

 

In addition, because they are used significantly less than 2,4-D, their contribution to exposure is minimal relative to 2,4-D.

 

Because the Agency has determined that the existing data DO NOT SUPPORT a conclusion that links human cancer to 2,4-D exposure, the Agency is not initiating a Special Review of 2,4-D, 2,4-DB and 2,4-DP.

 

This decision was first proposed on March 23, 1988 (53 FR 9590).

In 2007, Drs Renu Gandhi and Suzanne M. Snedeker, Cornell University, issued the following statements 

 

 

Does 2,4-D cause cancer in humans ?

 

There are NO REPORTS that indicate a direct link between 2,4- D exposure and cancer in humans.

 

Does 2,4-D cause breast cancer ?

 

NO DIFFERENCES have been reported in breast cancer rates of women who were previously exposed to 2,4-D through their occupation in either agriculture, manufacture of chlorophenoxy herbicides, or service in Vietnam during the war.

In 2007, CropLife Canada, the trade association that represents the manufacturers of pest control products, took an even stronger position regarding cancer 

 

Do pesticides cause cancer ? 

 

There are NO STUDIES WHICH LINK PESTICIDE EXPOSURE TO CANCER. 

 

In fact, health experts    from the Dieticians of Canada to the Canadian Cancer Society    consistently advocate a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and grains as one of the best ways to prevent cancer and heart disease. 

 

Pesticides are an important tool that allows us to grow an affordable, abundant food supply of fruit and vegetables.

Highly Implausible Carcinogenic Outcomes

 

The 2012 von Stackelberg Study On 2,4-D Herbicide

 

2012 02 01

 

 

On February 1st, 2012, Dr. Katherine von Stackelberg, E Risk Sciences And Harvard Center For Risk Analysis, released a report of a study that determined whether there was ANY VALIDITY to the suggestion from some EPIDEMIOLOGIC STUDIES that both 2,4-D and MCPA may be associated with an increased risk of Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma ( NHL ), Hodgkin’s Disease, Leukemia, and Soft Tissue Sarcoma. 

 

The 2012 von Stackelberg Study On 2,4-D Herbicide concluded   

 

The combined evidence indicates it is HIGHLY IMPLAUSIBLE that exposure to 2,4-D and/or MCPA are associated with a risk of developing NHL or other lymphohematopoietic cancers.

 

The 2012 von Stackelberg Study On 2,4-D Herbicide was published in 2012 in a peer-reviewed scientific publication, the Journal of Toxicology.

 

According to Dr. Katherine von Stackelberg 

 

I wouldn’t hesitate to let my CHILDREN and dogs play on a lawn where lawn care products have been used as long as the products were applied according to their respective labels.

Less Impact Than Soap

 

Environmental Impact Quotient ( EIQ )

 

 

The Environmental Impact Quotient ( EIQ ) for SOAP is HIGHER THAN the EIQ for 2,4-D Herbicide.

 

Scientists at Cornell University have developed the Environmental Impact Quotient ( EIQ ) as a measure of the relative impact of common pest control product ingredients on humans and the environment.

 

The EIQ is actually LOWER for many artificial pest control products than it is for many other mundane household items and « natural » pest control product alternatives.

 

To measure a pest control product’s toxicity, scientists use a complex formula to compare the substance and how it is used to get its environmental impact quotient or EIQ rating    a higher EIQ means more toxic.

 

The herbicide 2,4-D has an EIQ rating of 18.

 

Glyphosate, Roundup’s active ingredient is 15, and common soap is 19.5. 

 

Pyrethrin, an insecticide made from chrysanthemums, is 37. 

 

Sulphur has an IEQ of 45.

2,4-D Herbicide

 

Toxicity

 

Harmless Enough To Drink ?

 

 

2,4-D is NO MORE DANGEROUS THAN TABLE SALT, and, in fact, tastes like SALT WATER. 

 

In the early 1940s, Doctor R. Milton Carleton was the CO-DEVELOPER OF 2,4-D HERBICIDE. 

 

Carleton usually CARRIED A FLASK AROUND WITH HIM THAT CONTAINED 2,4-D FROM WHICH HE WOULD DRINK ON REQUEST « just to prove it was harmless ». 

 

Anyone who knew the distinctive FISH SMELL of 2,4-D knew that Carleton was ACTUALLY DRINKING THE REAL STUFF. 

 

The toxicity of 2,4-D is NOT VERY HIGH when compared to something, perhaps, that we are all familiar with    TABLE SALT. 

 

Pest control products like 2,4-D are LESS TOXIC THAN TABLE SALT. 

 

Carleton was NOT HARMED BY DRINKING 2,4-D    and HE LIVED TO THE AGE OF 87, and almost up to the end, drove annually to his summer home off the U.S. East Coast. 

 

No one is suggesting you use them on your fish and chips, but this puts things into some sort of perspective.

2,4-D Herbicide

 

Toxicity

 

Less Toxic Than Table Salt

 

 

Three-way herbicide products like Killex Turf Herbicide, that contain 2,4-D, have a LOW TOXICITY, with Oral LD50 greater than 5000 mg per kg. 

 

This LD50 value indicates that these products, even in their concentrated pre-diluted form, are safer than household items such as baking soda, caffeine, ethanol, and TABLE SALT.

 

In toxicology, the Median Lethal Dose, LD50 ( abbreviation for the « Lethal Dose, 50 per cent » ), is a value that represents the dose that is fatal for 50 per cent of an experimental group of laboratory animals, in most cases rats. 

 

THE HIGHER THE LD50 VALUE, THE LEAST TOXIC THE PRODUCT.

 

The toxicity of 2,4-D is not very high when compared to TABLE SALT.

 

TABLE SALT would be lethal at 3000 milligrams per kilogram.

 

Pest control products that contain 2,4-D are LESS TOXIC THAN TABLE SALT.

2,4-D Herbicide

 

History

 

Controversy With The Professional Lawn Care Industry

 

 

For several decades now, the name 2,4-D has been mired in controversy.

 

In the early 1980s, Anti-Pesticide Terrorist-Organizations across the country began pressuring Municipal and Provincial Government Officials to PROHIBIT against pest control products.

 

The 1980s also symbolized the golden era for the Professional Lawn Care Industry. 

 

Both the acquisition of customers and the accumulation of profits were phenomenally easy. 

 

From the point of view of Anti-Pesticide Activists, Professional Lawn Care businesses were spraying products, such as 2,4-D, with perceived impunity.

 

These activists formed Terrorist-Organizations in all main urban centers. 

 

They mandated themselves as the protectors of the community and the environment, and allowed themselves to ACCUMULATE WEALTH, CELEBRITY, and POWER because of controversy.

 

They focused their attention on pest control products used to maintain turf areas, such as golf courses, parks, residential lawns, and sports fields.

 

These Anti-Pesticide Activists were typically UNRECEPTIVE TO SCIENTIFIC TRUTH, and routinely tried to pressure Municipal and Provincial Government Officials into enacting legislation that would severely restrict, or entirely PROHIBIT the use of pest control products applied to urban green spaces. 

 

In the 1980s, succeeding in getting Municipal and Provincial Government Officials to legislate PROHIBITION was IMPLAUSIBLE. 

 

However, obtaining enactment of Sign-Posting laws was not.

 

The idea behind Sign-Posting was simple. 

 

A Professional Lawn Care business would « post », or display, a sign on a property following an application of pest control product. 

 

Activists argued that people were somehow routinely being poisoned by products used by Professional Lawn Care businesses.

 

Activists have also argued that CHILDREN ( and even pets ) DO NOT READ THE SIGNS POSTED.

 

This issue was addressed in 2006 by Health Canada 

 

To minimise any unnecessary exposure, it is good practice for parents to keep their children and pets off treated lawns until residues are dry.

 

However, it should be noted that the risk assessment was based on children entering treated areas on the day of treatment.

 

The unique physiology, behaviours and play-habits of children, such as their body weight and hand-to-mouth contact while playing on treated grass WERE ALSO CONSIDERED when determining how much exposure they could encounter.

 

The combined oral and dermal exposure indicated NO UNACCEPTABLE RISKS FOR CHILDREN on lawns, even when residues are at their highest levels.

 

Hence, Sign-Posting would provide the community with a sense of being protected by the information readily-available on the back of the signs.

 

Moreover, Anti-Pesticide Activists specifically turned their attention to 2,4-D. 

 

2,4-D was an ideal target. 

 

Its history was replete with controversial events and damaging insinuations. 

 

Its relationship with Agent Orange was the perfect ammunition. 

 

If 2,4-D was being applied excessively on turf areas, Anti-Pesticide Activists reasoned that sign-posting would provide people with the Right-To-Know as to its use throughout their community.

 

In 1985, in the Province of Quebec, negotiations took place between Provincial Government Officials and the Professional Lawn Care Industry. 

 

Their discussions centered on Sign-Posting. 

 

The industry had been adamantly opposed to sign posting for years, but was relenting. 

 

One year later, in 1986, Sign-Posting was adopted on a VOLUNTARY BASIS for the first time in Canada. 

 

Quebec’s Professional Lawn Care Industry agreed to post a sign after every application of pest control product. 

 

The design and dimensions of the signs ultimately adopted by the industry were originally created by William H. Gathercole.

 

Once sign posting was adopted throughout the province of Quebec, Anti-Pesticide Activists were aghast. 

 

In large urban centres, it became obvious that one out every three residential lawns was being treated by a Professional Lawn Care business. 

 

Lawn care ingredients, like 2,4-D, were being applied everywhere they looked. 

 

Activists then pleaded with politicians and the media that something more had to be done. 

 

SATIATED with the VICTORY of Sign-Posting, Anti-Pesticide Activists next DEMANDED PROHIBITION against pest control products.

 

In 1990, the Town of Hudson, located forty kilometres west of Montreal, enacted a PROHIBITION against the use of pest control products within its boundaries. 

 

The town professed that its by-law was somehow necessary for the « protection and health, life, and property of its citizens ». 

 

The controversy regarding the safety of 2,4-D was a major factor. 

 

Comparisons were inevitably drawn between 2,4-D and Agent Orange.

 

In 1997, a report from Quebec’s Poison Control Centre revealed that NO CASE of pest control product poisoning had been directly linked with the Professional Lawn Care Industry. 

 

Moreover, 88 per cent of poisonings occurred when pest control products were used IN THE HOME. 

 

Yet, the emergence of these facts provided only a temporary set-back to the zeal of Anti-Pesticide Activists.

 

In response to the Hudson PROHIBTION, the Professional Lawn Care Industry launched a media campaign designed to demonstrate the safety of their pest control products. 

 

In 1991, Hudson revised its PROHIBITION such that it would no longer apply to the two golf courses located within its territory. 

 

However, the PROHIBITION remained in force for Professional Lawn Care businesses as well as do-it-yourself home-owners.

 

Ultimately, Hudson’s PROHIBITION could only be reversed by legal means. 

 

The Quebec Professional Lawn Care Industry CONTESTED Hudson’s PROHIBITION through the Quebec Superior Court and Appeals Court. 

 

Once rejected by both these courts, the industry moved its arguments to The Supreme Court Of Canada.

 

In 2001, The Supreme Court of Canada upheld the PROHIBITION enacted by the Town of Hudson. 

 

The Supreme Court concluded that the purpose of the Hudson by-law was to minimize the use of allegedly harmful pest control products in order to somehow protect the health of its citizens. 

 

Since Anti-Pesticide Activists had already used the media to disseminate strong, albeit FALSE, allegations regarding the safety of 2,4-D and other lawn care ingredients, the industry could not reverse the tide of public sentiment.

 

Despite carefully researched documentation to the contrary, the industry had to face defeat.

 

As two decades of conflict between lawn care companies, municipalities, and Anti-Pesticide Activists raged, the truth about 2,4-D was being established elsewhere.

 

In early 2005, the Federal Pest Management Regulatory Agency of Health Canada ( PMRA ) announced that it had re-evaluated the use of 2,4-D on residential lawns and other turfgrass areas. 

 

It concluded that 2,4-D DID NOT ENTAIL AN UNACCEPTABLE RISK OF HARM TO HUMAN HEALTH, and indicated that 

 

  the toxicological database DOES NOT SUGGEST A CARCINOGENIC RISK.

 

This conclusion took into consideration children playing on turf areas treated with 2,4-D. 

 

Additionally, PMRA examined children in relation to their behaviors, play-habits, and unique physiology, with particular attention to their body weight and hand-to-mouth contact. 

 

This re-assessment was consistent with the re-evaluation made by the United States Environmental Protection Agency earlier in the same year.

2,4-D Herbicide

 

Discovery In 1945

 

 

The original patent on 2,4-D was issued in 1945 to Dr. Franklin D. Jones, a plant physiologist.

 

Dr. Jones was working with the naturally occurring plant auxin, indole acetic acid ( IAA ).

 

Since IAA proved too unstable to work effectively, Dr. Jones developed a synthetic version of IAA    namely 2,4-D.

 

IAA IS PRESENT IN ALL PLANT MATTER and HUMANS INGEST IT DAILY whenever fruit, vegetables, and cereals are consumed.

 

Recognizing its importance, in 2004 The Henry Ford organization in Dearborn, Michigan, identified 2,4-D as ONE OF THE 75 MOST IMPORTANT INNOVATIONS IN THE PREVIOUS 75 YEARS.

 

Few discoveries of any variety have done as much to increase food production throughout the world.

2,4-D Herbicide

 

Prohibited By Other Nations

 

Health Canada

 

2004 09 17

 

 

In Canada, pest control products, or pesticides, are regulated by Health Canada under the Pest Control Products Act, and are among the most stringently regulated substances in Canada. 

 

The Pest Management Regulatory Agency ( PMRA ) is the branch of Health Canada that administers the Act on behalf of the Minister Of Health. 

 

The primary objective of the PMRA is to prevent unacceptable risks to people and the environment from the use of pest control products.

 

On September 17th, 2004, the  Pest Management Regulatory Agency of Health Canada ( PMRA ) responded to the issue of nation prohibition with following statement 

 

Federal re-evaluation of pesticide 2,4-D.

 

2,4-D is no longer used in Sweden or Norway and its use is severely restricted in Denmark. 

 

[ HOWEVER, IN 2011, SWEDEN DID APPROVE THE CONTINUED SALE AND USE OF 2,4-D. ]

 

Environmental effects are cited as the primary reason for these actions as 2,4-D has the potential to enter groundwater, the primary source of drinking water in these countries. 

 

However, subsequent to these actions, the European Commission, upon completion of their re-evaluation of 2,4-D on October 1, 2001, concluded that it was acceptable for continued use the European Union, of which both Sweden and Denmark are members.

 

As part of the re-evaluation of 2,4-D, the PMRA has compiled all available drinking water data from various regions and sources across Canada. 

 

These data indicate that the levels in drinking water do not pose unacceptable risks for the Canadian population.

 

It is important to recognize that of the many studies published, some report associations between adverse health effects and 2,4-D exposure, while many others report a lack of association. 

 

As most of these papers acknowledge, epidemiology studies on their own are difficult to interpret because biases and confounding factors often preclude any convincing link between specific pesticide exposures and effects.

 

For example, influences from other chemicals and the physical environment encountered at the same time as pesticide exposures and recall bias from the individuals examined are two factors that can strongly influence the study result. 

 

Without an actual exposure calculation, it is difficult to assess whether pesticides could have been responsible for an adverse health outcome. 

 

This is why the PMRA also relies on the more scientifically exact method of quantitatively estimating risk by comparing exposures to the results of toxicity studies in laboratory animals. 

 

The proprietary studies used are conducted to internationally accepted standards and include toxicity studies done on a number of laboratory animal species for comparative purposes, as well as studies of exposure from all routes and methods of exposure. 

 

Safety factors ( typically 100 to 1000 fold ) are built into the assessment to account for different sensitivities between humans and experimental animals and among humans ( age, gender and individual sensitivities to pesticides ). 

 

In general, this is the same approach that is currently utilized by the various international pesticide regulatory authorities including the US EPA and other OECD countries.

2,4-D is registered for use in over 100 countries. 

 

The most recent country to approve its continued sale and use was Sweden in 2011. 

 

In some countries, the market size or product use restrictions do not warrant the cost of maintaining registrations. 

 

The European Commission, conducted a major re-evaluation of 2,4-D which was completed in October 2001, concluding that 2,4-D was acceptable for continued registration in all European member countries.

Over the course of 17 years, The Industry Task Force II On 2,4-D Research Data developed and submitted to EPA

more than 300 Good Laboratory Practice ( GLP ) toxicology, environmental and residue studies which EPA scientists

reviewed to assess the safety of 2,4-D.

 

It reported in its 304 page Re-Registration Eligibility Decision For 2,4-D ( « RED » ) that the short and long-term effects of using 2,4-D were « not of concern » when users followed product label instructions.

2,4-D Is Safe

 

Response To Health Canada Re-Evaluation

 

2008 06 16

 

 

Health Canada actually said 2,4-D WAS SAFE when used as directed    a logical statement that accompanies most human activity.

 

We don’t drive cars off cliffs because that is not safe.

 

Any automobile is not safe when driven unsafely.

 

Another favourite of junk science activists is the corporate smear.

 

Official science is « industry » science, and therefore not to be trusted.

 

According to activists, Health Canada decisions are « predicated on industry-supplied, highly controlled » studies.

 

Not true.

 

In fact, Health Canada evaluates the science as science, not on the basis of who supplied it.

 

Additionally, industry-supplied science can often be superior, if only because industry studies are often accompanied by full « raw data », something that doesn’t always come with other published studies.

Quebec Prohibition INVALIDATED

 

2011 05 25

 

 

Because of the outcome of a LAWSUIT against Quebec’s Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION, pest control products like 2,4-D were deemed SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE and prohibitions were IRREFUTABLY INVALIDATED.

 

In 2009, Dow AgroSciences sought a REPEAL of Quebec’s 2004-2006 PROVINCIAL PROHIBITION by INITIATING A LEGAL CHALLENGE against the Canadian federal government under the provisions of the North American Free Trade Agreement ( NAFTA ).

 

On May 25th, 2011, Dow AgroSciences, the manufacturer of the pest control product 2,4-D, SETTLED THE NAFTA CHALLENGE CASE with the Canadian government.

 

The North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA, is an agreement signed by the governments of Canada, Mexico, and the United States, creating a tri-lateral trade block in North America.

 

As part of the agreement, a VICTORY for Dow, the Government of Quebec was HUMILIATED into making a STATEMENT saying that 

 

2,4-D DOES NOT POSE AN UNACCEPTABLE RISK to human health or the environment.

 

Quebec was the first province to FALSELY ALLEGE that pest control products containing 2,4-D were POSSIBLY carcinogenic.

 

Other jurisdictions outside of Quebec also CONSPIRED to IMPOSE the Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITIONS against 2,4-D under the FALSE PRETEXT that it was a so-called carcinogen.

 

In fact, ABSOLUTELY NO regulatory body in the world classifies 2,4-D as a human carcinogen    2,4-D is probably the MOST STUDIED and BEST UNDERSTOOD of ANY chemical    not just pesticide    in existence.

 

The 2004-2006 PROVINCIAL PROHIBITION in Quebec DESTROYED the Professional Lawn Care Industry.

 

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 the 2004-2006 PROHIBITION, the remaining businesses operating in the Professional Lawn Care Industry in Quebec LOST UP TO 70 PER CENT OF THE BUSINESS THEY ONCE HAD.

 

2,4-D DOES NOT POSE AN UNACCEPTABLE RISK to human health or the environment.

 

2,4-D is SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE and CAUSES NO HARM.

2,4-D Herbicide

 

Pesticide Bans Are A Farce

 

Residents Are Obtaining 2,4-D Through The Internet

 

 

Because of PROHIBITION, residents are forced to improvise ways of obtaining pest control products like 2,4-D.

 

Home-owners simply ORDER BANNED PRODUCTS FROM ELSEWHERE IN CANADA and have them delivered by courier.

 

And the simplicity of the Internet has allowed this practice to go unchecked.

 

For example, Canadianlawncare Ltd. are wholesalers of pest control products like 2,4-D.

 

Home-owners can get 2,4-D delivered at home through Canada Post ?

2,4-D Herbicide

 

The Industry Task Force II On 2,4-D Research Data

 

 

This organization was established to address the regulatory data requirements of the United States Environmental Protection Agency ( EPA ) and Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency ( PMRA ).

 

The Industry Task Force II On 2,4-D Research Data was formed to work closely with the United States Environmental Protection Agency ( EPA ) and Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency ( PMRA ). 

 

Its role is to fund new research and provide information to each agency as required by their respective pesticide re-registration and re-evaluation programs.

 

The 2,4-D Task Force is made up of those companies owning the technical registrations on the active ingredient in 2,4-D herbicides. 

 

They are Dow AgroSciences ( USA ), Nufarm, Ltd. ( Australia ) and Agro-Gor Corporation ( USA & Argentina ). 

 

The Task Force does not conduct the research required by EPA and PMRA, it simply funds the scientific research needed to meet all agency requirements and keep 2,4-D registrations in the United States and Canada constantly up to date. 

 

All research funded by the Task Force is conducted under stringent Good Laboratory ( GLP ) Practice guidelines.

 

In an effort to provide the public with the most accurate and up-to-date information, The Industry Task Force II On 2,4-D Research Data takes the additional step of submitting the research findings to scientific journals for peer review and publication. 

 

As well, given its long history of use, 2,4-D has been WIDELY STUDIED by independent researchers and regulators around the world for decades.

 

To learn of the history and benefits of 2,4-D, explore the web-site [ see below ] to find out more about the success of a product that has garnered over 65 years of research and evaluation to become the ONE OF THE MOST TRUSTED SELECTIVE HERBICIDES available to consumers, turf managers, farmers, ranchers, and other users wishing to protect their green spaces and crops from undesirable vegetation.

DISCOVER WHAT ANTI-PESTICIDE AND ENVIRO-LUNATIC TERRORISTS ARE DOING AND SAYING ABOUT SUBVERSIVELY IMPOSING THEIR LIFE-STYLE CHOICES AGAINST OUR SOCIETY.

 

Force Of Nature  ―  The Whole Truth From An Independent Perspective.

 

Communities and businesses are being HARMED and DESTROYED and RAPED by PROHIBITIONS pest control products used in the Urban Landscape, and other ACTS OF ENVIRONMENTAL TERRORISM.

 

We are living in the 9|11 Era of Anti Pesticide and Environmental Terrorism where at least ONE SUBVERSIVE ACT OF TERROR is Perpetrated EVERY SINGLE DAY by Enviro Lunatic Activists.

 

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 RUMOUR  ―  scientific research PROVES that pest control products CAUSE NO HARM and can be USED SAFELY.

 

An informed public is better able to protect itself and its communities and businesses from so-called activists 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 and destroy the Green space industry, 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 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 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 January 1st, 2009, Force Of Nature Reports were launched for CONTINUOUS transmission on the Internet   ―   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 and Force Of Nature, in some ways, are like Google for everything concerning the SURVERSIVE ACTIVITIES of Anti-Pesticide and Enviro-Lunatic Terrorists.
