American Council on Science and Health

 

 

The American Council On Science And Health ( ACSH ) is a non-profit organization founded in 1978 by Dr Elizabeth M Whelan that produces peer-reviewed reports on issues related to food, nutrition, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, lifestyle, the environment and health. 

 

Its core membership is a board of 350 physicians, scientists and policy advisors who review the Council's reports and participate in ACSH seminars, press conferences, media communications and other educational activities.

 

American Council on Science and Health ( ACSH ) describes itself as a « consumer education consortium ». 

 

The group describes its mission as  …

 

…  to add reason and balance to debates about public health issues and bring common sense scientific views to the public.

 

ACSH frequently defends science against claims that industry products create risks of injury, ill-health or death. 

 

ACSH criticizes some industries for making unscientific and overstated health claims, promoting dangerous natural supplements, or otherwise failing to tell the truth about scientific issues. 

 

Scientific and professional journals routinely publish ACSH’s work, including  ― 

 

•   Clinical Therapeutics and Technology

 

•   CRC Critical Reviews in Clinical Laboratory Sciences

 

•   Ecotoxicology and Environmental Safety

 

•   Journal of Health Communications

 

•   Medscape

 

ACSH focuses its studies in several areas.

 

ACSH frequently warns against regulating chemicals without scientific proof of harms. 

 

A 2009 editorial by ACSH board member Henry Miller in Investor’s Business Daily criticized the United States Environmental Protection Agency ( EPA ), saying  …

 

An EPA hit list of important and demonstrably safe chemicals is about to be put through the regulatory wringer, and many are likely to be banned or severely restricted. 

 

These include bisphenol-A, phthalates, lifesaving flame retardants, the herbicide atrazine, and fluorinated chemicals used to make Teflon.

 

While ACSH does not currently disclose its funding, Dr Whelan described ACSH’s contributors to The New York Times in 2007  ― 

 

ACSH has a diverse funding base  ―  we receive donations from private foundations and individuals and unrestricted ( usually very small ) grants from corporations. 

 

The fastest-growing segment of our funding base is individual consumers who are sick and tired of the almost daily baseless scares  ―  and they write us checks to help support our work.

Pesticides & Health    Myths vs Realities

 

 

A Position Paper of the

American Council

on Science and Health

 

Professor Allan S Felsot

Washington State University

 

July 2011

 

Excerpts ( see below )

 

 

 

Pesticides & Health    Myths vs Realities ( Excerpts )

 

QUOTATION

 

 

…  in a press release world of communication, only the truly scary stories get told.

 

 

 

Pesticides & Health    Myths vs Realities ( Excerpts )

 

ATRAZINE, CHLORPYRIFOS, PYRETHROIDS, AND GLYPHOSATE

 

 

Following explications of toxicological mechanisms of selectivity and the importance of considering pharmacokinetic factors influencing pesticide disposition within the body, this report specifically examines the claims about four types of contemporary pesticides  —  atrazine, chlorpyrifos, pyrethroids, and glyphosate. 

 

In each case study, the published scholarly literature is used to show that the PERCEPTION OF ADVERSE EFFECTS has arisen as a result of mistaking  —  either through ignorance or ideology  —  laboratory studies of toxicological mechanisms for analysis of risk based on consideration of how the chemicals are actually used.

 

 

 

Pesticides & Health    Myths vs Realities ( Excerpts )

 

BENEFITS OF CHEMICAL TECHNOLOGY

 

 

Missing from much of the public debate are the benefits of chemical technology, especially as applied to crop protection. 

 

Negative critiques of modern agriculture are vaguely familiar as echoes of complaints nearly 40 years ago, just prior to the suspension by EPA of DDT use for agriculture. 

 

The report herein did not engage in trying to defend old chemical technology because agriculture has moved far beyond it. 

 

Crop protection specialists themselves began long ago to argue for the judicious use of crop protection agents. 

 

Industry long ago began to examine the problems of the most persistent chemicals with broad spectrums of toxicity to non-target organisms and synthesize new compounds with less persistence, less toxicity, and greater selectivity for specific pests versus non-target organisms. 

 

Furthermore, the amounts of new chemicals needed to control pests today are small fractions of what they were just 20 years ago.

 

 

 

Pesticides & Health    Myths vs Realities ( Excerpts )

 

CHEMICAL TECHNOLOGY

 

 

The point is, chemical technology has improved, and will continue to improve, human health, whether helping to make vegetables and fruits of high quality more abundant and cheaper or to preserve the health of individuals who can then help their society to progress.

 

 

 

Pesticides & Health    Myths vs Realities ( Excerpts )

 

DDT

 

 

Finally, we in the United States TAKE FOR GRANTED our country’s lack of serious outbreaks of epidemic disease transmitted by insect vectors. 

 

We ignore the fact of 300 MILLION NEW CASES OF MALARIA elsewhere each year and the devastating effects on an economy. 

 

The list of vectored diseases is large, but we do not think about the important contributions of pesticide use to the protection of our public health. 

 

Yet communities besieged by outbreaks of biting mosquitoes clamor for their communities to be treated with mosquito control insecticides, as long as it is done out of sight at night. 

 

Studies have proven that bans of DDT in South America were correlated with increased incidences of malaria that plummeted when spraying of wall surfaces resumed. 

 

If one doesn’t like DDT, one still cannot ignore the effectiveness of pyrethroid-treated bed nets to protect sleeping kids and their parents from feeding mosquitoes. 

 

Indeed, such nets, which would cost us the equivalent of pennies, are expensive commodities to many in the world.

 

 

 

Pesticides & Health    Myths vs Realities ( Excerpts )

 

EVIDENCE

 

 

However, scrutiny of the published literature has FAILED TO FIND EVIDENCE of a credible probability of adverse human health effects derived from the use of modern pesticides as occurs in the real world, not in the laboratory-generated environment.

 

 

 

Pesticides & Health    Myths vs Realities ( Excerpts )

 

FOCUSING ON THE PAST

 

 

Unfortunately, public attitudes  —  fed by attention-seeking MEDIA SCARE STORIES  —  seem FOCUSED ON THE PAST and fail to see a comparatively rapid change in chemical technology and how it has been deployed. 

 

Similarly, public attention is drawn to misinterpretations and half-analysis of stories of hazards.

 

 

 

Pesticides & Health    Myths vs Realities ( Excerpts )

 

GLYPHOSATE

 

 

In summary, pronouncements of adverse effects of glyphosate and its surfactant seem relegated solely to the laboratory; in the environment, exposure is just too low for any measurable effects. 

 

Indeed, the European authors own studies show clear thresholds for an effect. 

 

In other words, their studies show that, at some concentrations in the cell cultures, nothing happens. 

 

Proclaiming that spray tank concentrations of glyphosate expose workers to hazardous levels of glyphosate and its surfactants DEFIES LOGIC in the light of actual exposure measurements and in vivo rodent studies.

 

The interpretation of in vitro studies is realistic only when concentrations reflect levels likely to occur in blood and/or interstitial fluids.

 

 

 

Pesticides & Health    Myths vs Realities ( Excerpts )

 

ORGANIC AGRICULTURE

 

 

Some advocates call for wholesale adoption of organic agriculture. 

 

But if the calls are motivated by concerns about pesticide use, then disappointment will reign because USDA rules for certification of organic agriculture do allow pesticide use. 

 

But it is a « pick your poison » choice of eschewing certain products in favor of others. 

 

Ironically, some of the same active ingredients with known nervous system toxicity used by so-called conventional growers are also used by practitioners of organic agriculture.

 

 

 

Pesticides & Health    Myths vs Realities ( Excerpts )

 

PESTICIDE CONTROL STATUTES

 

 

Controversy surrounding pesticide use at first glance would seem to date back to the 1962 publication of Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring. 

 

However, this superficial analysis ignores the long history of pesticide control statutes such as the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act ( FFDCA 1938 ) and the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, Rodenticide Act ( FIFRA 1947 ).

THE PESTICIDE TRUTHS WEB-SITE

 

Communities and businesses are being HARMED and DESTROYED and RAPED by LUNATICS who ARBITRARILY AND RECKLESSLY IMPOSE PROHIBITIONS against pest control products used in the Urban Landscape, and by 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 LUNATICS.

 

A LUNATIC is a person whose actions and manner are marked by extreme recklessness.

 

The RECKLESS ACTS OF SUBVERSION by these LUNATICS has led to the ARBITRARY IMPOSITION of Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION in several jurisdictions throughout North America.

 

The result was CATASTROPHIC CARNAGE !

 

Because of Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION, 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 these LUNATICS, 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 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 ( a.k.a. LUNATICS ) 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 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 LUNATICS 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 and HIGHLY RATED EXPERTS who promote ENVIRONMENTAL REALISM and PESTICIDE TRUTHS.

 

THE MYTHS ABOUT BANNING PESTICIDES

 

NORAHG responds on behalf of the VAST SILENT MAJORITY of the public that DOES NOT WANT PESTICIDE BANS, and SUPPORT those who work in the Professional Lawn Care Industry, the Golf Industry, and the Agriculture Industry.

 

THE PUBLIC DOES NOT WANT PESTICIDE BANS

 

NORAHG is opposed to PESTICIDE FREE jurisdictions where LUNATICS 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.

 

ANTI-PESTICIDE PROHIBITION DESTROYED GREEN SPACES

 

PESTICIDE BANS MADE OUR GREEN SPACES LOOK #@!!% UGLY – PHOTO GALLERY

 

EMERALD ASH BORER – SAFE & EFFECTIVE INSECTICIDES VERSUS CHAIN SAWS

 

NORAHG is concerned that, because of PESTICIDE FREE MAINTENANCE of parks and sports fields, CHILDREN ARE AT HIGHER RISK OF SUFFERING INJURIES with the creation of HAZARDOUS SLIPPING AND TRIPPING CONDITIONS.

 

DANGEROUS PLAYING SURFACES ARE 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.

 

THE PESTICIDE TRUTHS WEB-SITE

 

Pesticide Truths and Force Of Nature, in some ways, are like Google for everything concerning the SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES of Anti-Pesticide and Enviro-Lunatic Terrorists.
