MYTH-BUSTING – CANCER, THE MYTH OF

 

 

 

 

 

Needless Hysteria That DDT Will Lead To Our Doom ?!?!   

 

 

[ … ] the oceans will die of DDT poisoning by 1979  [ … ]  the U.S. life expectancy will drop to 42 years by 1980 due to cancer epidemics. 

 

  Anti-Pesticide Lunatic-Alarm by Paul R. Ehrlich.  Author of the 1968 book The Population Bomb.  He expressed this light-hearted warning in 1969.

 

 

 

In British Columbia, there are over 5000 deaths per year from KNOWN CANCER-CAUSING SUBSTANCES such as cigarette smoke and alcohol. 

 

There is NOT ONE KNOWN CANCER DEATH from the proper use of a « cosmetic » pesticide.

The Myth That Pesticide Bans Prevent Cancer

 

 

There is NO SCIENTIFIC PROOF that pest control products cause cancer.

 

PROHIBITION is somehow validated by CONCOCTING MYTHS with ALLEGATIONS like «  pesticides cause cancer  ».    [ ?!?! ]

 

Activists DECEIVE the public into believing they have somehow researched the issues concerning pest control products    this is FALSE.

 

Anti-Pesticide Activists give the FALSE and FRAUDULENT impression that the public is being exposed to cancer-causing agents whenever a pest control product is used in the Urban Landscape.   

 

It is COMMON KNOWLEDGE that there are NO pest control products that are known or probable carcinogens.

 

It is a MYTH to believe that pest control products somehow cause cancer.

 

Environmental Protection Agency's ( EPA ) and Health Canada’s EXTENSIVE TOXICOLOGY DATABASES INDISPUTABLY PROVE that pest control products are SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE and DO NOT CAUSE CANCER ! 

 

Both EPA and Health Canada require each new pest control product to go through about TWO-HUNDRED SEPARATE TESTS to examine health and environmental impacts as well as value, and costing about 250 MILLION DOLLARS.

 

There are THOUSANDS OF DEATHS per year from KNOWN CANCER-CAUSING SUBSTANCES such as cigarette smoke and alcohol. 

 

There is NOT ONE KNOWN CANCER DEATH from the proper use of pest control products used in the Urban Landscape.

 

Canadian Cancer Society, through its promotional literature, continues to insist there is a link between pest control products and cancer, despite the fact that its U.S. counterpart, American Cancer Society, DOES NOT SHARE THE SAME VIEWPOINT.

 

According to Paul Visentin 

 

Such a statement [ by Canadian Cancer Society ] would make one believe that all the products used in lawn care are linked to cancer, while the use of the same products in agriculture and forestry sector are not.

 

Paul Visentin, Director of Integrated Environmental Plant Management Association of Western Canada ( IEPMA ).

 

Health Canada, and NOT Anti-Pesticide Activists, has THE ESSENTIAL EXPERTISE on the subject of pest control products.

 

Anti-Pesticide Activists have NO SCIENTIFIC PROOF that pest control products cause cancer.

 

There is NOT ONE KNOWN ILLNESS or DEATH from the proper use of pest control products used in the Urban Landscape.

 

Anti-Pesticide Activists are RIDICULOUSLY IMPLYING that their NON-EXPERT ASSESSMENT is somehow being withheld from Health Canada and EVERY other regulatory agency in the world.

 

There is NOT ONE KNOWN CANCER DEATH from the proper use of pest control products used in the Urban Landscape.

 

Pest control products are STRINGENTLY TESTED and REGULATED in order to ensure that they are SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE and CAUSE NO HARM.

Canadian Cancer Society’s own web-sites STATE REPEATEDLY that scientific research DOES NOT PROVIDE A CONCLUSIVE LINK between pest control products and cancer.

 

Even some of Canadian Cancer Society’s HIGHEST-RANKING LOBBYISTS states that the connection between cancer and pesticides is NOT CONCLUSIVE.

INDISPUTABLE AND CONCLUSIVE SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH shows that, as reported through Health Canada’s VAST TOXICOLOGY DATABASE, NO HARM WILL OCCUR when pest control products are used according to label directions.

 

In 2007, the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the Pest Management Regulatory Agency of Health Canada issued a ruling that products like 2,4-D Herbicide ARE NOT CANCER-CAUSING IN HUMANS.

 

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

 

International Agency for Research on Cancer ( IARC is part of the United Nation’s World Health Organization ) lists VERY FEW PESTICIDES as carcinogenic, or as probable or possible carcinogens, and NONE of these can be found among « cosmetic pesticides » used in the Urban Landscape.

 

Pest control products are SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE, and NO HARM WILL OCCUR when they are used according to label directions.

 

In food, REDUCING OUR EXPOSURE to TRACES of dietary synthetic pest control products is expensive and will NOT PLAUSIBLY REDUCE CANCER RATES.

The Myth That Cancer Is Increasing

 

 

Scientific proof indicates there is NO increase in cancer

 

 

PROHIBITION is somehow validated by CONCOCTING MYTHS with ALLEGATIONS like «  cancer rates are increasing  ».    [ ?!?! ]

 

This is FALSE !

 

Cancer rates are NOT RISING !

 

ALLEGATIONS by Anti-Pesticide Activists about CANCER INCREASES and the IMAGINARY DANGER of pest control products are TOTALLY FALSE, and are UNTRUE MIS-REPRESENTATIONS designed to ALARM and ENRAGE the public into believing that Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION is somehow necessary.

 

Why does anyone even bothering to listen these guys ?

 

According to a REAL EXPERT, Dr. Leonard Ritter,    just because there has been a 30 per cent increase in deaths from cancer in Canada does NOT mean there is any need for concern   

 

The reason for that increase is due to an AGING POPULATION and an INCREASING POPULATION. 

 

When you allow for that, there’s NO INCREASE AT ALL.

In fact, IARC has come under scrutiny for allowing its assessments to be colored by a BIAS TOWARDS POSITIVE RESULTS and to be SWAYED BY ADVOCACY. 

 

IARC systematically INFLATES its ratings, and gives priority to epidemiological studies that are subject to HIGH RATES OF FALSE POSITIVES.

23 Million Pages of Scientific Studies

 

 

Canadian Cancer Society’s position concerning CANCER is CONGRUENT WITH ALL OTHER ANTI-PESTICIDE AND NON-SCIENCE-BASED ORGANIZATIONS    

 

Over 100 STUDIES have linked pesticide exposure to both adult and childhood cancers.

 

The findings of this LIMITED NUMBER OF STUDIES can be challenged by reference to the following statement provided by Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency ( PMRA ) in 2012   

 

We estimated that just proprietary studies that are sub-mitted to us, which we keep on file, AMOUNTED TO ABOUT 23 MILLION PAGES OF SCIENTIFIC STUDIES that are used to support the decisions that we make on pesticides, which is FAIRLY SIGNIFICANT.

 

  Jason Flint ( Director, Policy and Regulatory Affairs Division, Communications and Regulatory Affairs Directorate ), January 17th, 2012, before the BC Special Committee on Cosmetic Pesticides.

 

 

 

Cherry-Picked Weak Epidemiological Studies

 

 

Furthermore, Canadian Cancer Society FAILS TO EXPLAIN is that the 100 STUDIES are ALL EPIDEMIOLOGICAL OBSERVATIONAL STUDIES WITH VERY WEAK LINKS between pesticides and disease. 

 

According to Health Canada   

 

Epidemiology studies identify associations rather than causation, and are examined IN CONJUNCTION WITH well conducted toxicity studies that are specifically designed to elicit toxic effects over a series of dose levels. 

 

These animal toxicity data are assessed to determine if there is any biological basis for the potential associations noted in epidemiology studies. 

 

The examination of animal toxicity data from internationally accepted guideline studies using doses well above those to which humans are typically exposed, combined with exposure data obtained from well-designed studies, is currently a useful methodology available for assessing risks to human health. 

 

Health Canada’s PMRA undertakes this kind of assessment to supplement information about associations that may be established by epidemiology studies. 

 

This approach is CONSISTENT with that of OTHER REGULATORY AUTHORITIES that base human health risk assessments on animal toxicity data.

NO Support For Cancer Epidemic

 

 

DR. BRUCE AMES, an American biochemist and molecular biologist, is ONE OF THE MOST CELEBRATED SCIENTISTS IN THE WORLD TODAY, and is also AMONG THOSE WHO ARE THE MOST CITED. 

 

Besides numerous other awards, he is the recipient of the U.S. National Medal of Science. 

 

Dr. Ames, for many years, was a senior staff member at the University of California, Berkeley and is the developer of the Ames Test, a process widely used for evaluating the mutagenicity ( which may then indicate the carcinogenicity ) of a chemical. 

 

Now retired from Berkeley, he continues to work at the California Children’s Hospital Oakland Research Institute, searching for the causes of cancer and other diseases of aging. 

 

As Dr. Ames and Dr. Lois Swirsky Gold ( also a Berkeley researcher ) have written   

 

The idea that there is an epidemic of human cancer caused by synthetic industrial chemicals is NOT SUPPORTED BY EI-THER TOXICOLOGY OR EPIDEMIOLOGY. 

 

Though there are some epidemiologic studies that find an association between cancer and low levels of industrial pollutants, the studies do not correct for diet, which is a potentially large confounding factor; moreover, the levels of pollutants are low and rarely seem plausible as a causal factor when compared to the background of natural chemicals that are rodent carcinogens.

International Agency For Research On Cancer

 

 

International Agency For Research On Cancer ( IARC ) is renowned for producing ASSESSMENTS OF CARCINOGENS.

 

Its reports were widely regarded as the most authoritative assessments available on cancer risks.

 

Since the early 1970’s, International Agency For Research On Cancer, a part of the World Health Organization, has produced assessments of carcinogenic hazards for use by researchers and regulators.

 

International Agency For Research On Cancer ( IARC ) classifies the agents it evaluates into one of the following categories 

 

Category 1    carcinogenic to humans

 

Category 2A — probably carcinogenic to humans

 

Category 2B — possibly carcinogenic to humans

 

Category 3    not classifiable as to its carcinogenicity in humans

 

Category 4    probably not carcinogenic to humans 

 

However, there is reason to believe that at least two other exposures classified by the agency as group 1 carcinogens are OPEN TO QUESTION    namely, DIESEL EXHAUST and environmental TOBACCO SMOKE. 

 

According to Geoffrey C. Kabat, it appears that some of the agency’s evaluations may OVERSTATE the risks, for reasons that tell us a great deal about the science and politics of risk assessment. 

 

Since only a SMALL NUMBER of IARC’s assessments have been REVIEWED BY INDEPENDENT SCIENTISTS, it remains to be seen to what extent the ranking of other agents is affected by FALSE POSITIVES.

 

In the past several years, International Agency For Research On Cancer ( IARC ) has come under scrutiny for ALLOWING ITS ASSESSMENTS TO BE COLORED BY A BIAS TOWARD POSITIVE RESULTS and TO BE SWAYED BY ADVOCACY IN THE WIDER SOCIETY.

 

However, a number of scientists with direct experience with IARC have felt compelled to DISSOCIATE THEMSELVES from the agency’s approach to evaluating carcinogenic hazards.

 

Their critique goes to the heart of the agency’s epistemology and its deliberative process.

 

In its evaluation, International Agency For Research On Cancer ( IARC ) considers experimental evidence of carcinogenicity but GIVES PRIORITY TO HUMAN EPIDEMIOLOGIC EVIDENCE.

 

But    as pointed out by Ioannidis and others    EPIDEMIOLOGIC STUDIES ARE SUBJECT TO HIGH RATES OF FALSE POSITIVES.

 

When IARC’s classification of individual agents is examined critically, it appears that the agency’s ratings may be SYSTEMATICALLY INFLATED.

 

For example, according to the critics, the classification of FORMALDEHYDE in group 1 [ carcinogenic to humans ] appears to be « particularly problematic », being based primarily on two positive studies, one of which has SERIOUS METHODOLOGICAL FLAWS, while the other shows INCONSISTENT RESULTS.

 

Among the agents classed in Group 2B [ possibly carcinogenic to humans ] are COFFEE and DDT, both of which have been extensively studied, and found NOT BE LINKED TO CANCER.

Problems With The IARC Process

 

 

According to Geoffrey C. Kabat 

 

FIRST PROBLEM WITH THE IARC PROCESS   

 

A major problem with the IARC process is that it makes it ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE to assign an agent to category 4    probably not carcinogenic.

 

Of the roughly one thousand agents evaluated by the agency, exactly ONE is in category 4    probably not carcinogenic.

 

 

SECOND PROBLEM WITH THE IARC PROCESS   

 

One that REINFORCES THE CLASSIFICATION PROBLEM.

 

Some of the WORKING GROUPS convened to assess a particular agent have INCLUDED SCIENTISTS WHO HAVE CARRIED OUT STUDIES ON THE AGENT UNDER EVALUATION.

 

It is fanciful to think that scientists who HAVE A VITAL STAKE in a particular question can evaluate the evidence, including their own studies, dispassionately.

 

 

THIRD PROBLEM WITH THE IARC PROCESS   

 

IARC REACHES ITS ASSESSMENTS BY CONSENSUS.

 

But this can mean that those who are more forceful and persuasive may influence the group decision-making process.

 

In addition, CONSENSUS IMPLIES A PHILOSOPHIC STANCE WHICH HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH SCIENCE.

IARC Classification Of Cellular Phones

 

 

According to Geoffrey C. Kabat, in 2011, International Agency For Research On Cancer ( IARC ) classified Cell Phone use as « possibly carcinogenic », when the agency’s own review showed that the overall evidence overwhelmingly indicated that Cell Phone use was NOT ASSOCIATED WITH INCREASED CANCER.

 

One has to ask what « possibly carcinogenic » means, if extensive evidence in humans and animals points to no threat.

 

All three Problems With The IARC Process came together in IARC’s assessment of Cell Phones 

 

 

FIRST PROBLEM WITH THE IARC PROCESS IN ASSESSING CELL PHONES   

 

UNDUE EMPHASIS ON A SMALL NUMBER OF POSITIVE EPIDEMIOLOGIC STUDIES from a single group, when the much larger body of studies indicated no elevated risk.

 

 

SECOND PROBLEM WITH THE IARC PROCESS IN ASSESSING CELL PHONES   

 

THE IMPROPER INFLUENCE OF AN ACTIVIST RESEARCHER ( the lead author of the anomalous positive studies ) on the deliberations of the working group; and, finally,

 

 

THIRD PROBLEM WITH THE IARC PROCESS IN ASSESSING CELL PHONES   

 

A TILT TOWARD THE « PRECAUTIONARY PRINCIPLE ».

Incidence Of Cancer vs Pesticide Use ?

 

 

If one wishes to look at correlations, consider this fact   

 

Generally, both [ cancer ] incidence and mortality rates are HIGHER in Atlantic Canada and Quebec.

 

  « Canadian Cancer Statistics 2009 », Canadian Cancer Society, Statistics Canada, and the Public Health Agency of Canada.

 

Compare the above statement to the fact that pesticide use « is lowest in the Atlantic provinces and Quebec ».

 

  « Households and the Environment Survey », Statistics Canada, February 10, 2009.

 

Are we then to suppose that we can conclude that pesticide use LOWERS the incidence of cancer ?

 

 

 

The Myth of Risk to Children

 

 

Children across North America, even in those jurisdictions with NO pesticide bans, are all protected since these products are applied at VERY LOW DOSES and represent NO THREAT TO CHILDREN.

 

The SAFETY ASSESSMENT of pest control products takes into consideration CHILDREN’s physiology, behaviours, and habits WHILE PLAYING ON TREATED GRASS.

 

Moreover, there are NO valid reports of problems with children, and there is NOT ONE KNOWN ILLNESS or DEATH from the proper use of pest control products used in the Urban Landscape.

 

INDISPUTABLE scientific research shows, as reported through the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's and Health Canada’s VAST TOXICOLOGY DATABASE, that NO HARM WILL OCCUR when pest control products are used according to label directions.

 

The RISK ASSESSMENT of pest control products has concluded that they are PRACTICALLY-NON-TOXIC and WILL CAUSE NO HARM.

 

Consequently, it is an INDISPUTABLE FACT that pest control products cause NO HARM, including chronic effects such as CANCER.

 

Not surprisingly, Anti-Pesticide Activists HAVE NEVER conducted ANY serious scientific study on pest control products    evidently because they is NOT COMPETENT OR MOTIVATED to do so.

 

Health Canada, and NOT activists, has the ESSENTIAL EXPERTISE and CREDIBILITY on pest control products.

 

Many Anti-Pesticide Activists operate businesses that would clearly PROFIT from Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION.

 

Nonetheless, Anti-Pesticide Activists COULD NOT EVEN BE BOTHERED to have used the EXTENSIVE TOXICOLOGY DATABASE that is available from both the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Health Canada.

 

Anti-Pesticide Activists prefer to attempt PROFITING from Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION, at the expense of the Professional Lawn Care Industry.

 

And they are not only SCIENTIFICALLY IGNORANT, but also LAZY and OBTUSE.

Causes of Cancer    The Wisdom of Dr. Leonard Ritter

 

 

According to Doctor Leonard Ritter 

 

  30 to 40 per cent of all cancers are due to the use of TOBACCO.

 

  50 per cent are caused by CHRONIC DISEASE.

 

  Obesity, sunlight, and tobacco smoke are FAR MORE SERIOUS CONCERNS than the use of pest control products.

Cancer rates are NOT RISING !

 

This is a MYTH perpetuated by Canadian Cancer Society.

 

Canadian Cancer Society is UNABLE TO BE HONEST about the fact that pest control products are SCIENTIFICALLY-SAFE. 

 

It has a HUGE VESTED INTEREST IN PERPETUATING IMAGINARY DANGERS about these products. 

 

Doing this attracts HUGE SUMS OF PROFIT in the form of donations.

 

Canadian Cancer Society has NEVER STOPPED giving the FALSE and FRAUDULENT impression that the public has been exposed to cancer-causing agents whenever a pest control product was being used in the Urban Landscape. 

 

Again, Canadian Cancer Society has « secret evidence » that, somehow, cancer rates are on the rise.

 

This is NOT TRUE !

 

If Canadian Cancer Society has some form of « secret evidence » to back up its ALLEGATIONS, it has yet to present substantiated findings to Health Canada.

There Is NO Increase In Cancer in Canada

 

 

According to Anti-Pesticide Activists 

 

Statistics Canada tells us the number of Canadians with cancer is increasing.

 

This is WRONG !

 

The HIGHEST QUALITY SCIENTIFIC EXPERT in the nation is Dr. Leonard Ritter.

 

According to Dr. Ritter, the nation’s LEADING EXPERT IN THE FIELD OF TOXICOLOGY AND PESTICIDE SAFETY 

 

PESTICIDES DO NOT CAUSE CANCER, and there is no increase in cancer deaths in Canada when you consider that the population is aging and increasing.

 

According to Dr. Leonard Ritter    just because there has been a 30 per cent increase in deaths from cancer in Canada does NOT mean there is any need for concern.

 

The reason for that increase is due to an AGING POPULATION and an INCREASING POPULATION. 

 

When you allow for that, there’s NO INCREASE AT ALL.

THE CANCER DEATH RATE IN CANADA IS GOING DOWN, resulting in nearly 100,000 lives saved over the last 20 years ( 1988 to 2007 ).

 

Despite the drop in the death rate, cancer is still the leading cause of death in Canada.

 

On May 9th, 2012, Canadian Cancer Statistics 2012 was released by the Canadian Cancer Society, in collaboration with the Public Health Agency of Canada and Statistics Canada.

 

DECLINES IN DEATH RATES were seen in all four major cancers    lung, colorectal, breast and prostate.

Cancer DECREASE

 

 

Many cancers have DECREASED since synthetic pest control products were introduced.

 

In the last 60 years stomach cancer has    in the Western World­    DECLINED by 60 per cent.

 

Much of this reduction is attributed to the doubling of the consumption of fruits and vegetables that require pest control products for their production.

 

Eliminating the use of pest control products, would greatly increase the cost of produce, resulting in less consumption due to higher costs, and a subsequent INCREASE IN THE INCIDENCE OF CANCER.

 

Again, the Precautionary Principle rules AGAINST the PROHIBITION of pest control products, as human life and health are of utmost concern.

American Cancer Society

 

 

Each year, American Cancer Society estimates the numbers of new cancer cases and deaths expected in the United States in the current year.

 

American Cancer Society compiles the most recent data on cancer incidence, mortality, and survival based on incidence data from the National Cancer Institute, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries, and mortality data from the National Center for Health Statistics.

 

 

 

Cancer Cases and Deaths Continue To DECLINE    2010 00 00

 

 

If so-called « carcinogenic chemicals » are everywhere, then the 2010 statistics from American Cancer Society would should an increase in cancer rates and deaths, and not a decrease.

 

In 2010, American Cancer Society reported that cancer incidence rates and deaths CONTINUED TO DECLINE.

 

The incidence of cancer     

 

   decreased by 1.3 per cent per year from 2000 to 2006 in men  

 

   decreased by 0.5 per cent per year from 1998 to 2006 in women.

 

Cancer death rates     

 

   dropped 21 per cent since 1991 among men  

 

   dropped 12 per cent since 1992 among women.

Cancer Cases and Deaths Continue To FALL    2012 01 04

 

 

If so-called « carcinogenic chemicals » we are all supposedly bathing in were really so dangerous, one would logically expect the 2012 statistics from American Cancer Society to increase, not decrease.

 

Cancer cases and cancer deaths are DROPPING in many corners of the United States, according to statistics released January 4th, 2012, by American Cancer Society.

 

The REDUCTION IN OVERALL CANCER DEATH RATES since 1990 in men and 1991 in women translates to the AVOIDANCE of about 1,024,400 deaths from cancer.

 

During the most recent 5 years for which there are data ( 2004 – 2008 ), overall cancer incidence rates DECLINED slightly in men ( by 0.6 per cent per year ) and were STABLE in women, while cancer death rates DECREASED by 1.8 per cent per year in men and by 1.6 per cent per year in women.

 

Over a ten-year-period of available data ( 1999 – 2008 ), cancer death rates have DECLINED by more than 1 per cent per year in men and women of every racial/ethnic group with the exception of American Indians/Alaska Natives.

 

For 2012, American Cancer Society projects 1,638,910 cancer cases will be diagnosed and 577,190 Americans will die of the disease.

Cancer Death Rates DECLINE    2012 01 04

 

 

According to statistics released January 4th, 2012, by American Cancer Society, death rates continue to DECLINE for all four major cancer sites ( lung, colorectum, breast, and prostate ), with lung cancer accounting for almost 40 per cent of the TOTAL DECLINE in men and breast cancer accounting for 34 per cent of the TOTAL DECLINE in women.

 

Lung cancer is responsible for the LARGEST DROP in death rates for men, while breast cancer deaths have DECLINED THE MOST among women.

 

 

 

American Indians and Alaskan Natives    2012 01 04

 

 

According to American Cancer Society, cancer rates have STABILIZED in those two groups.

 

 

 

Blacks and Hispanics    2012 01 04

 

 

According to statistics released January 4th, 2012, by American Cancer Society, the MOST RAPID DECLINES in death rates occurred among Black and Hispanic men, with DECLINES of 2.4 per cent and 2.3 per cent per year, respectively.

 

Still, Black men have a 15 per cent higher cancer incidence and 33 per cent higher death rate compared with White men.

 

Black women have a 6 per cent lower cancer incidence rate compared with White women but have a 16 per cent higher death rate.

 

 

 

Cancers That Are on the Rise    2012 01 04

 

 

According to statistics released January 4th, 2012, by American Cancer Society, cancers that are on the rise include tumors of the pancreas, liver, thyroid and kidneys as well as melanoma of the skin.

 

In addition, oropharyngeal cancers, which are linked to human papilloma-virus infection, are on the rise.

 

Obesity may explain the increase in pancreas, liver and kidney cancers.

 

 

 

Cancer Incidence and Death Rates Continue To FALL    2012 03 28

 

 

According to statistics released March 28th, 2012, cancer incidence and death rates CONTINUE TO FALL.

 

The statistics come from a report issued annually since 1998 by a group of government agencies and other organizations, including Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and American Cancer Society.

 

Overall cancer mortality has dropped by 1.5 per cent per year in adults and 1.7 per cent in children.

 

The rate of new cancer cases has been DECREASING at a rate of about half a per cent annually since 1999.

American Council on Science and Health

 

 

On January 5th, 2012, American Council for Science and Health ( ACSH ) was happy about these latest statistics, which show that U.S. CANCER DEATH RATES CONTINUED TO FALL.

 

And on March 30th, 2012, American Council on Science and Health was happy to note, yet again, that both U.S. cancer incidence and death rates CONTINUED TO FALL.

 

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. 

 

ACSH hoped this latest update will SILENCE SOME OF THE ALARMIST CRIES over the ALLEGED INCREASES IN CANCER related to chemicals.

 

In fact, actual science about DECREASING CANCER STATISTICS will have NO EFFECT on environmental activists’ MISLEADING CAMPAIGNS.

 

Despite the good news about cancer statistics, many environmental activists WILL CONTINUE TO ALARM consumers about the ALLEGED rise in cancer rates due to the « toxic » chemicals surrounding us.

 

Dr. Josh Bloom is the Associate Director of the American Council on Science and Health ( ACSH ). 

 

According to Dr. Bloom, on January 5th, 2012 

 

If the « carcinogenic chemicals » we’re supposedly bathing in ( like bisphenol A, phthalates, and others ) were really so dangerous, one would logically expect the American Cancer Society numbers to increase, not decrease. 

 

Clearly, that’s just not so.

 

Dr. Bloom is an Organic Chemist, and has worked in the pharmaceutical industry for about twenty years.

Cancer Risk Assessments

 

 

NO pest control product registered in Canada or in the United States is classified as either a carcinogen or probable carcinogen.

 

Only pests control products that do not pose an unacceptable risk of cancer in humans are registered for use in the Urban Landscape.

 

Assessment of cancer risks involves challenges that warrant special consideration.

 

The government’s approach to cancer risk assessment is based on the weight of the scientific evidence obtained through the evaluation of the entire data package.

 

The government’s assessment includes an examination of scientific studies to determine if the pesticide causes adverse effects in laboratory animals.

 

One of the effects that is looked for is whether the pesticide causes cancer in animals.

 

The majority of pest control products registered for use in Canada and in the United states DO NOT CAUSE CANCER in laboratory animals.

 

RELIABLE animal studies are used to determine the NO EFFECT LEVEL and the SAFETY MARGIN.

 

If there is evidence that a proposed pest control product causes cancer in laboratory animals, a special type of assessment called a quantitative risk assessment is conducted to determine if the use of the pesticide would result in an unacceptable risk of cancer in humans.

 

All potential exposures ( e.g. food, water, workplace ) that may occur over a lifetime are considered in the assessment.

 

Detailed risk assessments and very large margins of safety are built into the human health evaluations that the government carries out on proposed pesticides so that the public will be protected from risks such as cancer.

 

 

 

Pesticide Risk Assessment

 

 

In fact, the Pesticide Risk Assessment is VERY LOW for GOVERNMENT-APPROVED and FEDERALLY-LEGAL pest control products    1-IN-1-MILLION-RISK-OF-CANCER.

 

1-IN-1-MILLION = 0.000001 = 1.0 x 106, often referred to as 10-6 cancer risk.

 

This means that assuming daily exposure over a 70 year life-time that an individual would have a 1-IN-1-MILLION-RISK-OF-CANCER above normal probability.

 

 

 

The Wisdom of Keith R. Solomon

 

 

The HIGHEST QUALITY SCIENTIFIC EXPERT in the nation is Dr. Keith R. Solomon.

 

According to Dr. Solomon, the nation’s LEADING EXPERT IN THE FIELD OF ENVIRONMENTAL BIOLOGY, TOXICOLOGY, AND PESTICIDE SAFETY, PESTICIDES DO NOT CAUSE CANCER 

 

There is NO EVIDENCE of ANY causal link between pesticide use and cancer.

 

According to Professor Keith R. Solomon, there are other opinions on pest control products and cancer from agencies like the International Agency for Research on Cancer.

 

There is really A LACK OF EVIDENCE linking pest control product exposure to human risks of cancer.

 

In Canada, age-adjusted cancer incidence rates have REMAINED CONSTANT or decreased for most forms of cancer.

 

Breast and prostate cancer have increased   

 

  some of this is because of lifestyle issues,   

 

  the other part is better diagnosis.

 

Childhood cancers have NOT INCREASED in Canada over the last 20 or 30 years.

 

Professor Keith R. Solomon is HIGHEST QUALITY SCIENTIFIC EXPERT

 

Professor Keith R. Solomon, Ph.D., is a Professor in the Department of Environmental Biology at the University of Guelph.

 

Solomon is also Director of the Centre for Toxicology.

Anti-Pesticide Activists

 

 

Instead of increasing the public’s awareness of the largest known preventable causes of cancer, such as smoking and diet, Anti-Pesticide Activists prefer SCAMMING, DECEIVING, and ALARMING the public into believing there is some IMAGINARY DANGER with conventional pest control products.

 

Rather than providing information for improving the lifestyle choices of the public that could, without a doubt, actually save lives, Anti-Pesticide Activists  prefer CONCOCTING MYTHS, DECEPTIONS, FEAR-MONGERING, FRAUDULENT LIES, MISCONCEPTIONS, COERCION, THREATS, TERROR, and PARANOID CONSPIRACIES about conventional pest control products.

FALSE ALLEGATIONS by Cancer-Lunatics

 

 

ALLEGATIONS from Canadian Cancer Society about the IMAGINARY DANGER of pest control products are TOTALLY FALSE, and are UNTRUE MIS-REPRESENTATIONS designed to alarm and enrage the public and enhance its BUSINESS, CASH-FLOW, and PROFIT.

 

There is NOT ONE KNOWN CANCER DEATH from the proper use of pest control products used in the Urban Landscape.

 

There are THOUSANDS OF KNOWN  DEATHS per year from KNOWN CANCER-CAUSING SUBSTANCES such as unhealthy diet, physical inactivity, excess body weight, alcohol consumption, and over-exposure to the sun. 

 

Pest control products are SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE, CAUSE NO HARM, and DO NOT CAUSE CANCER.

 

Perhaps if Canadian Cancer Society were to prioritize its energy to the primary causes of cancer, such as life-style choices, LIVES WOULD BE SAVED.

 

In fact, ANTI-PESTICIDE PROHIBITION IS UNECESSARY since pest control products are carefully regulated by Health Canada.

 

 

 

Canadian Cancer Society & Research

 

 

It is now common-knowledge that THE PRIMARY REASON FOR THE EXISTENCE of Canadian Cancer Society is BUSINESS, CASH-FLOW, and PROFIT.

 

It is also common-knowledge that THE MAJORITY OF ITS DONATION FUNDS DOES NOT GO INTO RESEARCH.

 

The MAJORITY OF DONATION FUNDS goes to paying for HIRED GUNS or LOBBYISTS, and clerical employees.

 

These HIRED GUNS or LOBBYISTS are PAID VAST SUMS OF MONEY to COERCE, INTIMIDATE, and TERRORIZE Government Officials by CONCOCTING FRAUDULENT LIES AND IMAGINARY DANGER about pest control products.

 

These HIRED GUNS or LOBBYISTS give the public the FALSE AND FRAUDULENT IMPRESSION that children and adults are being exposed to cancer-causing agents whenever a pest control product is used.

In fact, NO cause-and-effect relationship between pest control products and cancer has been established scientifically.

 

Moreover, NOT A SINGLE PERSON within Canadian Cancer Society has ANY recognized expertise, training or background in matters concerning pest control products.

 

Pest control products help ensure CHILDREN have access to SAFE recreational spaces where they can play without the THREAT of TRIPPING and INJURING themselves.

 

If left unchecked, weeds can DESTROY IMPORTANT GREEN SPACES and other costly infra-structures, and ROB CHILDREN of the opportunity to enjoy ever-so-important outdoor activities.

 

Pesticide-free playgrounds and sports fields can be over-taken by weeds or severely damaged by insects, seriously impacting the ability to provide these important playing areas to children.

Pesticide-Treated Daffodils

 

 

The Anti-Pesticide Activists who operate Canadian Cancer Society have ABSOLUTELY NO SCRUPLES regarding the use of conventional pest control products    when it suits THEM !

 

Fresh Daffodils SOLD-FOR-PROFIT by Canadian Cancer Society are PESTICIDE-TREATED and FORMALDEHYDE-DRENCHED.

 

IRONICALLY    both Daffodil Production for Canadian Cancer Society and the Professional Lawn Care Industry use the SAME conventional ingredients that are needed to control insect and weed pests. 

 

Contract-Daffodil-Growers working for Canadian Cancer Society use conventional pest control products on a regular and continuous basis, and have done so for decades.

 

IRONICALLY    pesticide-treated-cancer-daffodils sold by Cancer-Lunatics are not toxic.

 

IRONICALLY    conventional pest control products used to produce pesticide-treated-cancer-daffodils are scientifically safe since they have been scrutinized and approved by the hundreds of expert scientists at HEALTH CANADA ! 

 

IRONICALLY    Cancer-Lunatics consider the hundreds of qualified scientists of HEALTH CANADA’s respected PEST MANAGEMENT REGULATORY AGENCY to be incompetent and/or incapable of arriving at correct scientific conclusions regarding pest control products.

 

IRONICALLY    Cancer-Lunatics constantly discredit the work of HEALTH CANADA, and yet, this federal agency has determined that the pest control products used for producing the daffodils sold by Canadian Cancer Society are scientifically safe.

 

IRONICALLY    Professional Lawn Care maintenance requires LESS PESTICIDE-INPUTS than Daffodil Production.

Using Cigarettes is RIDICULOUS and STUPID

 

 

Any comparison of CIGARETTES to pest control products is PITIFULLY RIDICULOUS, as well as LAUGHABLY STUPID !

 

Cigarettes have NOTHING IN COMMON with conventional pest control products.

 

Anti-Pesticide Activists use this NONSENSICAL COMPARISON purely as a means of COERCING and INFLUENCING the public into believing that it is necessary to PROHIBIT pest control products, despite the fact that they are HEALTH-CANADA-APPROVED, FEDERALLY-REGULATED, SCIENTIFICALLY-SAFE, PRACTICALLY-NON-TOXIC, and CAUSE NO HARM.

 

There is NO FEDERAL REGISTRATION of tobacco products.

 

By comparison, there IS a FEDERAL REGISTRATION of pest control products.

 

There is NO agency that regulates tobacco, except perhaps for restricting access to young people.

 

By comparison, there IS an agency that REGULATES pest control products    Health Canada.

 

Moreover, cigarettes are ABOVE THE LAW because our governments have chosen to shield them from the regulatory process. 

 

This is NOT the case with pest control products.

 

Our governments have chosen to HEAVILY REGULATE pest control products. 

 

Pest control products are STRINGENTLY TESTED and REGULATED in order to ensure that they are SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE and CAUSE NO HARM.

NORAHG is the National Organization Responding Against HUJE that seek to harm the Green space industry.

 

Communities and businesses are being HARMED and DESTROYED by PROHIBITIONS against the use of pest control products in the Urban Landscape.

 

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 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.
