Pesticides Are No Threat To Kids

Summary

Left-wing pesticide-hating enviro-fanatжcs are WRONG.  Conventional pest control products ARE scientifically-safe, & WILL NOT cause harm to children.  Pest control products are NO threat of harm to children  ―  they are NOT at risk.  Allegations about the imaginary danger to children are totally false, & are untrue mis-representations designed to alarm & enrage the public for mere money & profit given to anti-pesticide & environmental-terrжrist organizations.  The risk assessment of conventional pest control products indicates that they are scientifically-safe, and, when used properly, WILL NOT cause harm to children, adults, animals, & the environment.  Children ARE at risk from dangerous pest-infested turfgrass playing surfaces which are created by #@!!% pesticide bans.  In other words, children are NOT at risk from pesticides, but are at high risk with pesticide bans.  According to Mr William Jordan, Deputy Director, Office of Pesticide Programs, US EPA, parents DO NOT need to worry as long as a pest control product like 2,4-D are used correctly.

Quotes

According to US Environmental Protection Agency ( US EPA )  ―

[ … ]  the federal pesticide program is designed to ensure that these products can be used with a REASONABLE CERTAINTY that they will POSE NO HARM to infants, children, & adults.

According to Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency
( PMRA )  ―

Health Canada does NOT register pesticides that are known to cause cancer or other illnesses when used according to the label directions.  Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency is responsible for administering the Pest Control Products Act on behalf of the Minister of Health.  Before a pesticide is allowed to be used or sold in Canada, it must undergo a rigorous scientific assessment process which provides reasonable certainty that NO harm, including chronic effects such as cancer, will occur when pesticides are used according to label directions.  Under this pre-market approval process, results from more than 200 types of scientific studies must be submitted to determine if the pesticide would cause any negative effects to people, animals, birds, insects, plants, as well as on the soil & in the water.  This assessment takes into consideration sensitive sub-groups, such as pregnant & nursing women, INFANTS, CHILDREN, & seniors.

Fanatжcal-Prohibition Against
Pesticides Is High-Risk For Kids

Summary

Pesticide-hating enviro-fanatжcs arbitrarily, maliciously, & recklessly conspire to impose prohibition against pest control products used in the urban landscape.  Their lunatжc-lies against pest control products have created a dark age of anti-pesticide terrжrism where sound science is trumped by junk science, fake-news, & unverifiable secret evidence.   http://wp.me/P1jq40-5fk  When conventional pest control products are prohibited, turfgrass playing surfaces becomes thin & yellow  ―  they are damaged & destroyed with weed invasions & insect infestations, resulting in the annihilation of these surfaces.  Any form of prohibition against these products actually harms children & represents a danger to children !  Because of prohibition, children are forced to play on #@!!% dangerous, pest-infested, & high-risk garbage dumps.  Furthermore, the public rejects prohibition.  According to a recent Ontario poll, more than half of residents believe that the provincial government DID NOT do the right thing by implementing prohibition.  Ontario residents would rather have the ban scrapped or modified.  Another poll, conducted by Canadian Consumer Specialty Products Association ( CCSPA ), showed that the vast majority of residents in British Columbia are opposed to reckless & arbitrary prohibition, & they actually favour the continued use of these products around their homes & in public green spaces.  Who wants this #@!!% ban nonsense ?!?!  Overwhelming scientific evidence clearly demonstrates that conventional pest control products indicates that they are scientifically-safe, and, when used properly, WILL NOT cause harm to children, adults, animals, or the environment.  NO ONE wants this #@!!% dangerous ban nonsense that places children at risk !

Fanatжcal-Terrжr-Talk
Represents High-Risk To Kids

Summary

Children are NOT at risk from pesticides, but they are at high-risk of exposure to fanatжcal-adults & their hollow & despicable use of terrжr-talk.  It is apparent that non-expert pesticide-hating fanatжcs who use terrжr-talk about children have NO recognized expertise, NO training, & NO background in matters concerning pest control products.  Terrжr-talk is designed to alarm & enrage the public into prohibiting pest control products.  Here are some examples of terrжr-talk regarding children & pest control products   ―   children are at risk [ ?!?! ]; childhood cancer [ ?!?! ]; children more highly exposed [ ?!?! ]; children more vulnerable [ ?!?! ]; exposure to toxins [ ?!?! ]; illnesses caused by pesticides [ ?!?! ]; serious illness [ ?!?! ].  Pesticide-hating fanatжcs heard using the above hollow & despicable expressions that prove they DO NOT know what they are talking about; & they are wrong about children.  Pest control products are safe for children, & DO NOT represent a threat !

Quote

According to Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency
( PMRA )  ―

Health Canada is confident that the pesticides approved for use in Canada, including lawn & garden products, can be used safely when label directions are followed.

Pesticides & Children

Health Canada & US EPA Protect Kids

Summary

Children are NOT at risk from pesticides because these products WILL NOT cause harm.  The assessment of pest control products by Health Canada & US Environmental Protection Agency ( US EPA ) take into consideration sensitive groups, such as children, as well as infants & pregnant women.  Children’s physiology, behaviours, & habits while playing on treated turfgrass playing surfaces are considered when determining the safety of pest control products.  Extra safety factors are applied by Health Canada & US EPA to protect children, as well as infants & pregnant women.  Pest control products cause NO harm to children.  In fact, medication is the leading cause of poisoning in children.  Pest control products will cause NO harm, including chronic effects such as cancer.  Children are protected by Health Canada & US EPA.  Pest control products are safe for children, & DO NOT represent a threat !

Quote

According to Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency
( PMRA )  ―

The PMRA’s human health risk assessments consider the Canadian population in general & sub-populations such as women of child-bearing age, pregnant & nursing women, INFANTS & CHILDREN.  INFANTS & CHILDREN have been a special consideration in health risk assessments for many years.  Recent advances in scientific understanding reaffirm that children are NOT « little adults » & must be considered as a discrete sub-group.  Two elements distinguish infants & children from the adult population  ―  1)  Biological considerations.  The developing fetus, INFANTS, & CHILDREN, are in a state of rapid growth with cells dividing & organ systems developing.  CHILDREN have a higher ratio of skin surface area to body weight than adults & on a weight for weight basis, CHILDREN eat more food, drink more water, & breathe more air, than adults.  As a result of these biological differences, CHILDREN may absorb, metabolize, & excrete chemicals differently than adults do, potentially resulting in differing levels of susceptibility to chemical hazards.  2)  Unique exposures.  In addition to exposure through minute residues that may remain on some food, such as fruits & vegetables, CHILDREN may be exposed to pesticide residues in breast milk & formula, through skin contact with treated [ turfgrass ] surfaces while crawling & playing, & through incidental ingestion from behaviours such as hand-to-mouth transfer.

Exploited Kids Are Clearly Being Exposed To
Some Form Of Reckless Fanatжcal-Abuse

Summary

Children are NOT at risk from pesticides, but they are at high-risk of exploitation & abuse by fanatжcal-adults.  For years, left-wing pesticide-hating enviro-fanatжcs have been despicable in their outrageous exploitation & abuse of children as dramatic weapons of coercion & ultimate environmental-terrжr.  These fanatжcs exploit & abuse children in order to promote prohibition against pest control products.  They exploit children to alarm & intimidate the public into believing that anti-pesticide prohibition is somehow necessary.  Even babies have been used to coerce, influence, stifle, & intimidate politicians.  Babies have been forced to function as weapons of coercion & terrжr.  NO ONE wants #@!!% fanatжcs who exploit & abuse children & babies as lobbyists.  They have been clearly exposed to some form of fanatжcal-abuse which is reckless & unnecessary.  Prohibition that is imposed under the pretext of protecting children’s health is wrong.  Pest control products are scientifically-safe, & will cause NO harm, & represent NO threat to children & babies.

Fanatжcal-Exploitation &
Abuse Are Harming Kids

Summary

Children are NOT at risk from pesticides, but they are at high-risk of exposure to the paranoia & the conspiracies perpetrated by pesticide-hating fanatжcal-adults.  These fanatжcs MUST be having a negative impact on their children within their communities.  It has been speculated that these children are clearly being exposed to some form of fanatжcal-abuse.  Ultimately, children are being harmed & abused because of parents who are pesticide-hating fanatжcs, & NOT because of pesticides.  In fact, observers are, themselves, morally disgusted that their children’s attitudes are being twisted with the paranoia & the conspiracies of their fanatжcal-parents.  Sadly, some day, their children will become just like them, & will, themselves, serve absolutely NO useful purpose to society, just like their fanatжcal-parents.  If fanatжcal-parents truly care about their children, they will cease & desist all further paranoid conspiracies  …  for the sake of their children.  In public forums, young pesticide-hating fanatжcal-mothers are easily identifiable because they like publicly dressing in spandex, & are often paid-for-profit to attend public forums with their young children or babies who are forced to cry & bawl in order to disrupt the proceedings.  Crying & bawling is often NOT difficult since many of these children or babies are often abused by starvation with inferior organic food.  These fanatжcal-parents abuse their children by making them fearful & anxious children about modern technology.  Pesticide-hating fanatжcal-parents abuse their children by leading them to believe that when a loved one or a family pet passes on, it is because of pest control products.  Further abuse is heaped upon their children by having them somehow diagnosed with exotic & unlikely diseases & disorders, like ADHD.  The worst abuse of pesticide-hating fanatжcal-parents is forcing their children to use pesticide-free playgrounds that are dangerous, pest-infested, & high-risk garbage dump green spaces, which are damaged & destroyed with weed invasions & insect infestations.  But, these fanatжcal-parents could not care less about their children.  Sadly, pesticide-hating fanatжcal-parents prefer to despicably & outrageously exploit & abuse their children as dramatic weapons of coercion & ultimate environmental-terrжr in order to promote anti-pesticide prohibition.  These fanatжcal-parents are paid-for-profit to disrupt public forums  ―  by forcing their young children, & even babies to cry & bawl.  Making these children cry & bawl is often NOT difficult since their fanatжcal-parents starve them with inferior organic food.  Furthermore, these children are being harmed & abused because of parents who making them fearful & anxious about modern technology.  These fanatжcal-parents further abuse their children by leading them to believe that when a loved one or a family pet passes on, it is because of pest control products.  Additional abuse is heaped upon their children by having them somehow diagnosed exotic & unlikely diseases & disorders, like ADHD.  How can anyone allow pesticide-hating fanatжcs near children ?!?!

Babies Are At High-Risk Of Exploitation & Abuse

Terrжr-Talk From Fanatжc Rick Smith

Summary

Babies are NOT at risk from pesticides, but they are at high-risk of exploitation & abuse by fanatжcal-adults.  Pesticide-hating fanatжcs, like Rick Smith, have used terrжr-talk with babies in order to alarm & enrage the public into prohibiting pest control products.  Babies have been outrageously exploited & abused as dramatic weapons of coercion & ultimate environmental-terrжr.  Some enviro-fanatжcs, like Rick Smith, have admitted to exploiting babies in order to deliberately stifle & silence public debate.  In his book « Slow Death By Rubber Duck », Rick Smith boasts ⁄ rants how he organized meetings and photo-ops with rent-a-crowd moms, strollers, and, of course, gurgling, crying and diaper-wetting babies.  And then, as Smith blatantly states  ―  « content with a good day’s work, the babies went home for their afternoon naps ».  This confirmed what observers have known for years  ―  that enviro-fanatжcs, like Rick Smith, routinely stifled & silenced public debate through the exploitation & abuse of babies.  How can anyone allow these fanatжcs near children ?!?!

Note

Who is Rick Smith ?!?!  Rick Smith has operated as a mere hired-gun lobbyist ( a.k.a. paid anti-pesticide & public policy activist ) for organizations like Environmental Defence & New Democratic Party.  He is listed among the nation’s prominent environmental terrжrists & he is one of the fanatжcal-architects of anti-pesticide prohibitions.  He currently operates Broadbent Institute, a political shileld for New Democratic Party ( NDP ), a subversive, dangerous, destructive, creepy, golf-hating, & anti-pesticide political party.  He has also operated Environmental Defence Canada ( EDC ), a mad-hatter, non-expert, tax-exempt, for-profit, anti-pesticide, & environmental-terrжrist organization that has conspired to impose reckless & arbitrary prohibition against pest control products.  Organizations like Environmental Defence are presently under investigation for charity fraud & conspiracy.  In view of his acts of subversion, Rick Smith & his organizations DO NOT deserve public support & donations.  NO ONE wants #@!!% fanatжcs who exploit & abuse babies as lobbyists !

Terrжr-Talk From Fanatжc Paul Tukey

Summary

Children are NOT at risk from pesticides, but they are at high-risk of exploitation & abuse by fanatжcal-adults.  Pesticide-hating fanatжcs, like Paul Tukey, have used terrжr-talk about children in order to alarm & enrage the public into prohibiting pest control products.  Sick children have been outrageously exploited & abused as dramatic weapons of coercion & ultimate environmental-terrжr.  Fanatжcs, like Paul Tukey, are often hypochondriac-parents whose rants have falsely-alleged that pest control products are somehow responsible for the poor health of their children.  These hypochondriacs exploit their sick children to scam & deceive the public into believing that anti-pesticide prohibition is somehow necessary.  These fanatжcs, like Tukey, know NOTHING about pest control products ( & about raising children ), but knows lots about exploiting their children for mindless, senseless, & fraudulent fear-mongering.  NO ONE wants #@!!% fanatжcs, like Paul Tukey, who exploit sick children to validate unproven & NOn-existent danger with pest control products.  How can anyone allow hypochondriac-parents near children ?!?!

Note

Paul Tukey has been proven as a dismal failure !  Tukey announced that he abandoned his SafeLawns foundation, which only ever had one employee, himself.  Our prayers have been answered, & the anti-pesticide destroyer of businesses is gone !  Because of his acts of pesticide-hating subversion, Tukey destroyed more businesses than almost any other person on the planet.  Hundreds & hundreds of businesses were destroyed in the green space industry because, throughout America & Canada, Tukey conspired to prohibit against pest control products used in the urban landscape.  He subverted & polluted the justice & legislative systems in both countries.  Years of demands & complaints against Tukey culminated in his demise  ―  a victory for the surviving businesses operating in the green space industry.  Overall, Tukey was NOt only a destroyer of businesses, but also a failed journalist, an illegal paid-for-profit non-registered lobbyist, a tax-evader, & a supplier of bogus green alternative products & services.  Tukey has been proven as a dismal failure !  Regardless of where Tukey attempts to hide, demands & complaints will be continued against him.  Tukey will eventually be arrested for the avoidance of the payment of taxes, & for the subversion & pollution of the justice & legislative systems.  The bastжrd is gone, but never forgotten.

Statements

Sick Kids Are At High-Risk Of Exploitation &

Of Panicking About Chemicals

The Wisdom Of Mr Jon Entine &  American
Council On Science & Health ( ACSH )

Summary

Children are NOT at risk from pesticides, but they are at high-risk of exposure to chemophobia panic by their fanatжcal-parents.  How can anyone allow chemophobic-fanatжcs near children ?!?!

Quote

According to Mr Jon Entine in an article written for ACSH  ―

CHEMOPHOBIA PANIC can  ―  & historically has  ―  led to POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS OUTCOMES & UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES.  [ Pesticide-hating fanatжcs ] assume that chemicals cause cancer unless you can prove that they don’t.  Kids are going to spend a life-time being exposed to chemicals  ―  auto exhaust, chlorine, perfume, smoke, soot, soap  ―  they will be fine  ―  parents should just calm down.  Over the last several years, the level of FEAR, MIS-INFORMATION, & MEDIA HYPE surrounding the use of SAFE CHEMICALS in every-day household products has swelled to a level which must be addressed in detail before this situation gets even further out of hand.  It is NOT POSSIBLE to prove that a chemical DOES NOT cause cancer.  Obsessing over every item in the home that isn’t « natural » or contains compounds too difficult to pronounce is a waste of time & energy.  PSEUDO-SCIENCE & FEAR OF PERCEIVED ENVIRONMENTAL RISKS among the public has led to CHEMOPHOBIA.  Studies may note that chemicals have been detected in people’s bodies, & yet, they FAIL TO IDENTIFY ANY DEFINITIVE ILL EFFECTS.  The groups with a vested interest in keeping you afraid are NOT A CREDIBLE SOURCE OF INFORMATION.  The notion that we are constantly are being bathed in toxins, & that all accumulate in our bodies & do some kind of harm is FARCICAL.  The reason that minuscule amounts of chemicals can be measured in our bodies is due to BETTER ANALYTICAL TECHNIQUES  ―  not a wholesale poisoning of the public.  There are certainly real risks in the home, & these should be taken seriously  ―  cleaning products, electrical plugs, medications, & stairs.  When parents become OBSESSED WITH THE MINUTE RISKS, they often dismiss the REAL ONES.

Notes

Mr Jon Entine is among several LEADING EXPERTS who have recognized expertise, training, & background in matters concerning pest control products.  Mr Entine is an American author & journalist.  Mr Entine is a Senior Research Fellow at the Institute for Food & Agricultural Literacy at the University of California, Davis.  Mr Entine is Founder & Executive Director of the Genetic Literacy Project ( GLP ), a bio-technology & genetics outreach organization.  The stated purpose of the Genetic Literacy Project ( GLP ) is to promote public awareness & discussion of bio-technology, evolution, genetics, & science literacy.  Mr Entine’s GLP staff produces articles focusing on human genetics as well as on food & farming issues, including genetic engineering, the use & impact of crop protection chemicals, & pollinator health.  Mr Entine’s GLP staff also aggregates articles from various published sources.  Mr Entine earned a philosophy degree from Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut.

ACSH is a non-profit organization, co-founded by Dr Elizabeth M Whelan, that produces peer-reviewed reports on issues related to food, nutrition, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, life-style, the environment, & health.

Fanatжcal-Recruitment Of Kids

Statement

Kids Are At High-Risk Of Being
Recruited For Exploitation & Abuse

Summary

Children are NOT at risk from pesticides, but they are at high-risk of being recruited as weapons of coercion & ultimate environmental-terrжr.  Here are the facts about children recruited by pesticide-hating enviro-fanatжcs.  There is NOT a scintilla of credible evidence that children have been harmed by chemicals in the environment or that they are more vulnerable to such harm. Nonetheless, enviro-fanatжcs abuse, recruit, exploit, coerce, & brain-wash children with false-alarms of imminent harm.  Pesticide-hating enviro-fanatжcs attempt to recruit hapless & innocent children into following the lunatжc-doctrines of environmental-terrжrism, such as anti-pesticide prohibition.  Enviro-fanatжcs brain-wash children about the imaginary danger of modern chemicals, such as pest control products, that are, otherwise, safe & effective.  These despicable fanatжcs also outrageously exploit & abuse children as dramatic weapons of coercion & ultimate environmental-terrжr in order to coerce, intimidate, & terrжrize the public & government officials into accepting lunatжc-doctrines such as anti-pesticide prohibition.  Enviro-fanatжcs coerce children to celebrate enviro-lunatжcs like Al Gore & David Suzuki by treating them as « eco-heroes ».  Enviro-fanatжcs advance their lunatжc-doctrines by coercing children to admire environmental-terrжrist-organizations such as Greenpeace, David Suzuki Foundation, Environmental Defence, Rainforest Alliance, Sierra Club, & more.  Enviro-fanatжcs falsely-caution children against new-home construction, the plastics industry, & conventional agriculture.  Enviro-fanatжcs coerce children to subversively persuade their parents to « vote green », buy organic food, & give money to environmental-terrжrist-organizations.  Children are brain-washed into believing that it is best for the earth for families to have NO more than one child.  NO ONE wants #@!!% fanatжcs who exploit, abuse, recruit, coerce, & brain-wash children.  How can anyone allow enviro-fanatжcs near children ?!?!

Note

Greenpeace’s purpose in society has been questioned by many government officials.  It operates as a pesticide-hating & environmental-terrжrist organization.  Greenpeace has LOST its charity tax-exempt status in several jurisdictions, including Canada, and has been told to STAY OUT of countries like India.  Other organizations are being investigated for fraud and conspiracy.

Kids Are At High-Risk Of Being Hurt On A Daily Basis Because They Are Forced To Play On Dangerous, Pest-Infested, & High-Risk Garbage Dumps

The Wisdom Of Mr Peter Shawn Taylor

Summary

Children are NOT at risk from pesticides, but they are at high-risk of being hurt on a daily basis.  They are forced to play on pesticide-free playgrounds that have become dangerous, pest-infested, & high-risk garbage dump green spaces.  Turfgrass playing surface have been damaged & destroyed with weed invasions & insect infestations  ―  because of prohibitions against conventional pest control products.  Children WILL NOT be safe on pesticide-free turfgrass playing surfaces  ―  in fact, prohibiting pest control products will doom children.  With prohibitions, children are actually at high risk of slipping & tripping, & becoming seriously hurt.  Using pest control products prevents slipping injuries on playing surfaces.  Children need pesticides.  And, with reckless & arbitrary prohibition, government officials are officially liable for all injuries.  With prohibitions, children ( & adults ) are actually at high risks of slipping & tripping & becoming seriously injured on public green spaces & playing surfaces.  Prohibitions will create dangerous conditions.  Using pest control products prevents dangerous playing surfaces.  Children need weed-free playing surfaces, & they need pesticides.  Without conventional pest control products, turfgrass playing surfaces becomes thin & yellow, & damaged & destroyed with weeds & insects, resulting in high risks of serious injury for children ( & adults ).  Without these products, public green spaces & playing surfaces become damaged & destroyed with weed invasions, as well as insect infestations like European Chafer.  When it rains, pesticide-free maintenance will lead to slippery mud bogs.  When dry, pesticide-free surfaces will become hard as concrete.  Falling on these surfaces will lead to broken bones, twisted ankles, & skinned knees.  Low risk green spaces & playing surfaces can only be achieved with conventional pest control products ( & fertilizers ).  NO ONE wants this #@!!% dangerous ban nonsense that places children at high risks of serious injury !

Quote

According to Mr Peter Shawn Taylor  ―

Ignoring the work of the federal government’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency, jurisdictions like Ontario blithely declared a sweeping prohibition was necessary for our children’s health.  With the Ontario pesticide ban, NO other jurisdiction in North America went so far in forbidding chemical weed control.  Yet a weed-free lush grass lawn or field has many practical benefits.  For one, grass acts as a natural cushion.  It is also an effective sponge for rain water.  A sports field entirely over-run by dandelions provides NONE of these benefits.  When it rains, the sports field becomes a slippery mud bog.  In hot months  ―  the sports field becomes a concrete-like surface.  Not only does this make it difficult to play sports, but it’s dangerous as well.  Falling on hard-baked playground mud is, speaking from parental experience, the direct cause of numerous skinned knees & twisted ankles.  Ontario’s crusade on behalf of children’s health is actually hurting kids on a daily basis.  It’s also the case that many, most likely a majority, of people consider a uniform green lawn to be a thing of beauty & an object of desire.  From this perspective, prohibition represents an effort to dictate aesthetics.

Doomed Kids Are At High-Risk Of Being Hurt On A Daily Basis Because They Are Forced To Play On Dangerous, Pest-Infested, & High-Risk Garbage Dumps

Summary

In Hamilton, Ontario, children are NOT at risk from pesticides, but they are at high-risk from injuries brought on by a municipal pesticide ban.  In Hamilton, children could NOT play on city-owned green spaces because they became dangerous, weed-infested, & high-risk garbage dumps.  The weeds were damaging & destructive because Hamilton imposed prohibition against pest control products that could have controlled the weed invasion.  Hamilton’s prohibition was soon followed by an Ontario provincial prohibition.  City officials have predicted that, within a decade, Hamilton’s parks and sports fields will be nearly 100 per cent covered in weeds, with bare ground, and rutted turfgrass playing surfaces.  Elected officials complained that at Hamilton’s Moorland Park,  children were doomed because they could NOT play on the two-year-old turfgrass surfaces due to the proliferation of dangerous, damaging, & destructive weeds.  Hamilton’s prohibition create high risk & dangerous conditions.  Using pest control products would prevent dangerous turfgrass playing surfaces.  No one wants this #@!!% dangerous ban nonsense that places children at high risks of serious injury !

Summary

In Wallingford, Connecticut, children are NOT at risk from pesticides, but they are at high-risk to a host of issues brought on by a municipal pesticide ban that was NOT really thought out properly.  18 months after prohibition was imposed, Wallingford had a substantial change in the turf thickness on the athletic fields, & weeds were out of control around the buildings & landscape beds, converting green spaces into dangerous, pest-infested, & high-risk garbage dumps.  When residents of Wallingford  see a baseball in-field over-grown with weeds, they get really upset about the failure of its municipal prohibition against pest control products.  Because of Wallingford’s prohibition, municipal employees CANNOT use safe & effective herbicides, instead, they are forced to pull the weeds by hand, just like cotton-pickers, & use weed trimmers.  After prohibition was imposed, Wallingford’s Madison Schools were forced to spend exorbitant amounts of money.  The schools were forced to buy over 40,000 dollars’ worth of equipment, & were forced to hire more personnel to pull the weeds by hand.  The exorbitant cost of a so-called organic pesticide-free program  —  with NO conventional pest control products  —  was significantly more expensive than an Integrated Pest Management ( IPM ) program that allows pesticide use as a last resort.  According to David Paul, director of facilities for the city school system organic green alternative pesticides « just don’t work, & whatever does remotely work is so expensive it’s NOT conducive to our budgets ».  In Wallingford, green alternative pesticides are dismal failures.  Moreover, Wallingford municipal employees are forced to resort to manual labour, & are required to hand-pull weeds, just like cotton-pickers.  In jurisdictions like Wallingford, Connecticut, there is a fear of litigation with pesticide-free turfgrass playing surfaces which have been invaded by damaging & destructive weeds, like clover & dandelion.  These weeds attract dangerous & deadly bees.  What if children get stung & what if they are allergic ?!?!  Clover attracts bees that can harm children & kill people.  These weeds attract killer bees.  For people who are allergic to bee stings, a sting may trigger a dangerous anaphylactic reaction that is potentially deadly.  Additionally, honey bee stings will release pheromones that prompt other nearby bees to attack.  Children are NOT at risk from pesticides, children are at risk from bees brought on by pesticide bans.  NO ONE wants this #@!!% dangerous ban nonsense that places children at high risks of serious injury.  Children are NOT at risk from pesticides, but are at high risk with pesticide bans.  Those who support overturning prohibition in Wallingford believe NOT using pest control products can still create a harmful environment for students.  Children face high risks of serious injury because of reckless & arbitrary prohibition.  Sports fields are over-grown with clovers & dandelions.  Clover also attracts sting & potentially deadly bees.  If children play on a weed-infested pesticide-free sports field, what happens if they get stung by bees ?!?!  If children play on a weed-infested pesticide-free sports field, what happens if they have a deadly allergy to bees ?!?!  Children are NOT at risk from pesticides, children are at risk from injuries brought on by pesticide bans !

Pesticides Are No Concern For Kids

Statements

The Issues Concerning The Safety Of Pest Control Products Have Been Successfully Resolved By National Regulatory Agencies Like Health Canada

The Wisdom Of Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency ( PMRA ) DOES Take Kids Into Consideration

Summary

Children are NOT at risk from pesticides because are protected by Health Canada.  There is NOT a scintilla of credible evidence that children have been harmed by chemicals in the environment or that they are more vulnerable to such harm.  However, pesticide-hating fanatжcs exploit, abuse, recruit, coerce, & brain-wash children with false-alarms of imminent harm from chemicals like pest control products.  Children are NOT more vulnerable to pest control products.  All children are protected from exposure to pest control products  …  thanks to Health Canada & other national regulatory agencies.  Children & adults across the nation, even in those jurisdictions with NO prohibitions, are all protected since these products are applied at very low doses & represent NO threat to children.  Health Canada requires each new pest control product to go through a comprehensive set of over two-hundred separate tests & a review of all scientifically credible studies that exist to ensure that the product WILL NOT cause harm to children, adults, animals, & the environment.  The safety assessments of pest control products by Health Canada, & other national regulatory agencies, DO take children into consideration.  These assessments DO consider children’s physiology, behaviours, & habits while playing on treated turfgrass surfaces.  Pest control products are scientifically-safe, will cause NO harm, & are NO threat to children.  There are NO valid reports of problems with children.  In fact, medication is the leading cause of poisoning in children, & NOT pest control products.  Children are going to spend a life-time being exposed to all sorts of chemicals  ―  auto exhaust, chlorine, perfume, smoke, soap, soot  ―  & they will be safe.  Children are NOT at risk from pesticides, children are at risk from injuries brought on by pesticide bans !

Quote

According to Health Canada  ―

Infants & children have been a SPECIAL CONSIDERATION in pesticide risk assessments for many years.  The PMRA has established policies that require additional protection for children & pregnant women, & to also take into account pesticide exposure from all sources, including food & water.  These policies were formally implemented in law in June 2006 when the new PCPA came into force.  [ … ]  In the exposure assessment, sensitive populations & life stages are SPECIFICALLY ADDRESSED, including infants, children, & women of child-bearing age.  Consideration is given to the different activities, dietary habits, food intake & body weight of children versus adults.  A pesticide will only be registered if this estimated exposure raises NO CONCERNS.  Once this is determined, the PMRA will ensure the label directions indicate the appropriate use instructions to best minimize exposure.  Therefore, it is highly important that the person using the product carefully follow the label directions.

Note

Health Canada helps protect the Canadian public by researching, assessing & collaborating in the management of the health risks & safety hazards associated with the many consumer products that Canadians use every day.  Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency ( PMRA ) regulates pest control products in Canada.  PMRA requires thorough scientific reviews & safety assessments to ensure that pest control products meet strict health & environmental standards & are shown to have value.

The Issues Concerning The Safety Of Pest Control Products Have Been Successfully Resolved By National Regulatory Agencies Like US EPA

The Wisdom Of US Environmental Protection Agency
( US EPA ) DOES Take Kids Into Consideration

Summary

Children are NOT at risk from pesticides because are protected by US EPA.  According to Mr William Jordan, Deputy Director, Office of Pesticide Programs, US EPA, parents DO NOT need to worry as long as a pest control product like 2,4-D is used correctly.  US EPA has spent a lot of time looking at products like 2,4-D, & has concluded that it is safe for kids.

Quote

According to US EPA, in a report entitled « Pesticides & Food : Health Problems Pesticides May Pose »  ―

Laboratory studies show that pesticides can cause health problems, such as birth defects, nerve damage, cancer, & other effects that might occur over a long period of time.  However, these effects depend on how toxic the pesticide is, & how much of it is consumed.  Some pesticides also pose unique health risks to children.  [ … ]  For these reasons, the federal government, in cooperation with the states, carefully regulates pesticides to ensure that their use DOES NOT pose unreasonable risks to human health or the environment.  In particular, the federal pesticide program is designed to ensure that these products can be used with a reasonable certainty that they will pose NO harm to infants, children, & adults.

Note

In America, pest control products are regulated by US Environmental Protection Agency ( EPA or US EPA ), which requires thorough scientific reviews & safety assessments to ensure they meet strict health & environmental standards & are shown to have value.

Pesticides No Risk To Kids
With Certified Applicators

Statement

No One Should Hesitate To Let Their Children Play On A Lawn Where Pest Control Products Have Been Applied By A Certified Applicator

Summary

Children are NOT at risk from pesticides whenever certified applicators are used.  For decades, the professional lawn care industry has advocated that using its services is safer for children than do-it-yourself lawn care.  Obviously, professional lawn care companies apply pest control products in a dilute form.  Do-it-yourself home-owners who apply these same products themselves must store them in the home in a concentrated form.  Poison control centres report poisonings with house plants, paints, solvents, detergents, cooking oil, drain cleaners, etc … , as well as pest control products.  Medication is the leading cause of poisoning in children, & NOT pest control products.  Moreover, the vast majority of pesticide poisonings with children involve toxic, & concentrated, products stored in an unsecured fashion within the home.  Diluted products are tens of thousands of times less toxic than concentrated products.  Of course, the fear-mongering pesticide-hating fanatжcs wish to give the false impression that children & adults are being exposed to dangerous cancer-causing agents whenever a certified applicator applies even diluted products.  There are NO valid reports of problems with children when pest control products are applied by a certified applicator from a business operating in the professional lawn care industry.  There is NOT ONE known of acute poisoning from the use of pest control products used by certified applicators from the professional lawn care industry.  Potential poisonings will be reduced if certified applicators perform the pest control applications.

Quotes

In 2001, a Quebec poison control organization, Groupe Scientifique Sur Les Pesticides, reported that …

Close to 40 per cent of reported cases [ of poisoning by pest control products ] involve oral exposure, primarily in children, which points to the risks associated with IMPROPER STORAGE of these products in the home.

According to Health Canada  ―

To prevent accidents, pesticides should always be stored safely, in their original containers & out of children’s reach.  [ … ]  Store pesticides out of the reach of children & pets, & away from feed, food or water.

Home Storage Of Pesticides
Represents High-Risk To Kids

Statement

Potential Poisonings Will Be Reduced If Certified Applicators Perform The Pest Control Applications, Thereby Eliminating The Storage Of Concentrated Products Within The Home

Summary

Children are NOT at risk from pesticides, but they are at high-risk of exploitation by David Suzuki Foundation.  Non-expert pesticide-hating fanatжcs, like those who operate Suzuki, have used terrжr-talk about children designed to alarm & enrage the public into prohibiting pest control products.  They do so in order to compensate for the fact that they have NO recognized expertise, NO training, & NO background in matters concerning pest control products.  This statement implies that children, & adults, are exposed to « poisonous » chemicals every time a pest control application is performed on a lawn  ―  this is false.  The REAL issue revolves around the storage of concentrated & toxic products in an unsecured fashion within the home, & NOT the application of diluted & safe products on a turfgrass surface.  Potential poisonings will be reduced if certified applicators perform the pest control applications, thereby eliminating the storage of concentrated products within the home.

Quotes

Suzuki has issued the following terrжr-talk statement  ―

More than 6,000 Canadians are directly poisoned by pesticides each year & nearly half of those are CHILDREN under the age of six, according to a new report by David Suzuki Foundation.

Suzuki has even admitted to the issue of toxic & concentrated products stored in an unsecured fashion within the home in another of its report, « Northern Exposure  –  Acute Pesticide Poisonings In Canada »  ―

This disproportionate level of impact reflects a number of factors but primarily UNSAFE STORAGE  [ … ].

Note

Enviro-profit is tax-exempt financing of anti-pesticide & environmental terrжrist organizations in Canada, such as David Suzuki Foundation.  Suzuki is a fund-raising, profit-seeking, & lobbying organization, but it is NOT a science, NOT a research, & NOT a health organization.  Suzuki’s donation money DOES NOT go into research, but goes to paying for enviro-lunatжc hired-guns or lobbyists, & clerical employees.  Suzuki exists for one reason, & one reason only  …  & that is to make money.  David Suzuki Foundation is operated by enviro-lunatжcs who solicit for enviro-profit by sending unsolicited propaganda packages to schools & children.  Suzuki despicably prostitutes for enviro-profit by exploiting schools & children as weapons of coercion & ultimate terrжr in order to obtain financing through donations.  Suzuki hates Santa Claus & ruins Christmas for children.  Children should NOT be exposed to Suzuki !  In winter 2011-2012, David Suzuki told children that Santa Claus would die unless their parents gave HIM money !  Ostensibly, Suzuki has told children that Santa’s home was to be destroyed by floods created by so-called global warming, a theory which has been debunked !  As a Buddhist, Suzuki seemingly could not care less about children & Christmas.  Furthermore, Suzuki has demonstrated that you can lure donations  …  by saying & doing anything no matter what the consequences  …  even at the expense of children.  All is fair, it seems, in the desire to accumulate profit, even if it means damaging children’s precious dreams  …  the ones the rest of us spend so much time & effort protecting.  Suzuki is seemingly leaving a legacy of frightened children, destroyed economies, lost jobs & hardship for people, & weakened communities.  It’s time to stop making donations to David Suzuki.  It’s also time for David Suzuki to step down as host of television programs by Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, including The Nature Of Things, because of his illegal interference in partisan politics & public policy, & violations of taxation laws.  We need a better David Suzuki !

The Safety Of Kids Is Ensured
By Observing Re-Entry Intervals

No Harm Will Occur When Children Play On A Dried Treated Surface After A Pest Control Application

Summary

Children are NOT at risk from pesticides because are protected by Re-Entry Intervals.  Re-Entry Intervals are necessary to ensure that any pest control product residues on the treated turfgrass playing surfaces DO NOT pose an unacceptable risk to the health of children & adults.  These intervals reflect the amount of time required for pest control product levels to dissipate to a level that is well below any point of concern.  They are determined by Health Canada in order to protect children & adults against potential harm from pest control products applied to turfgrass playing surfaces.  Typically, for ALL pest control products used for professional lawn care maintenance, the Health-Canada-approved labels state  ―  « keep people off treated area until foliage is DRY ».  The same can be said for the vast majority of pest control products used for golf course maintenance.  When the vast majority of these products are properly used, label directions stipulate that in order to minimize any unnecessary exposure, it is good practice to stay off treated turfgrass playing surfaces until residues are DRY.  A few minutes after the application has DRIED, pest control products will cause NO harm to children & adults.  In essence, wait-until-dry products may be considered as requiring NO interval.  Additionally, a very small number of products used by golf courses have a requirement for a Re-Entry Interval of 12 hours, but there are NONE for 24 or 48 hours.  For some products, the Re-Entry Interval has been determined to not be necessary.  NO harm will occur when children play on a dried treated turfgrass surfaces after a pest control application.  These products are applied at very low doses, & DO NOT present a concern to children  …  & of course adults.  After a pest control product dries on the turfgrass leaf surface, it is difficult, if not impossible, to dislodge residues off the turfgrass leaf surface.  Pest control products are safe for children, & DO NOT represent a threat !

2,4-D Will Cause NO Harm

The Wisdom Of The Von
Stackelberg Study On 2,4-D

Summary

Children are NOT at risk from pesticides because 2,4-D DOES NOT cause cancer.  Leading scientific experts, like Dr Katherine von Stackelberg, say they WOULD NOT hesitate to let their children play on a lawn where lawn care products, like 2,4-D, have been used as long as the products have been applied according to label directions.  She concluded that the combined evidence indicated it was HIGHLY IMPLAUSIBLE that exposure to 2,4-D was associated with a risk of developing cancers.  Dr von Stackelberg, of E Risk Sciences & Harvard Center for Risk Analysis, has 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 & MCPA may be associated with an increased risk of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma ( NHL ), Hodgkin’s Disease, Leukemia, & Soft Tissue Sarcoma.  The von Stackelberg Study on 2,4-D Herbicide was published in a peer-reviewed scientific publication, the Journal of Toxicology.  Children are safe on a 2,4-D-treated lawn.

Quote

The 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.  [ … ]   I wouldn’t hesitate to let MY CHILDREN & dogs play on a lawn where lawn care products have been used as long as the products were applied according to their respective labels.

High-Risk Alternatives

Statement

Green Alternative Pesticides
Can Be A Danger To Children

Summary

Children are NOT at risk from conventional pesticides, but they are at high-risk of exposure to green alternatives that are high-risk & more toxic.  There are NO low-risk, NO viable, NO efficacious, NO economical alternatives to replace conventional pest control products.  There are NO alternatives that work.  Green alternative pesticides are bogus & dismal failures.  Green alternatives are incorporated into pest control programs  ―  NOT because they work  ―  but because of legislation that imposes reckless & arbitrary prohibition.  Professionals, & even home-owners, are being prevented from using conventional products that are truly effective as well as scientifically safe.  By definition, alternatives are inferior, which is why they DID NOT win the market-place originally.  Overall, green alternative pesticides are ineffective, inadequate, inferior, high-risk, more toxic, & stunningly expensive.  In many cases, these alternatives are questionably higher in toxicity, & pose higher environmental risks.  Prohibitions have created self-inflicted catastrophic ecological carnage caused by uncontrolled, invasive, & destructive pests.  Because of failed prohibitions, city-owned green spaces & residential properties have been severely damaged & destroyed, & have been turned into dangerous, pest-infested, & high-risk garbage dumps.  These prohibitions have cost stunningly exorbitant amounts of money  ―  tens & tens of millions of dollars.  European Chafer insects, Japanese Knotweed, & Japanese Beetle insects, & others, have become uncontrolled, invasive, & destructive pests  ―  BECAUSE of prohibition.  It is impossible for professionals, & even home-owners, to protect their properties by using so-called green alternative pesticides.  Hence, municipal prohibitions have been created with so-called exception statuses.  A major study of British Columbia’s anti-pesticide by-laws has concluded that municipal prohibitions are dismal failures.  This is because municipal officials are known to circumvent their own prohibitions by allowing thousands & thousands of inconsistent & unfair exception statuses that they have been conveniently inserted in their by-laws to avoid the use of green alternatives.  Without conventional pest control products, city-owned green spaces & residential properties have become dangerous, pest-infested, & high-risk garbage dumps because it is impossible to control weed invasions & insect infestations by using so-called green alternative pesticides & practices.  Municipal prohibitions have led to catastrophic pest carnage for tens of thousands of destroyed & ravaged properties every single year.  There are REAL trends against the conspiracy to impose prohibition against pest control products used in the urban landscape.  There are dozens & dozens of jurisdictions that have stopped or rescinded or limited or invalidated or beginning to repeal anti-pesticide prohibitions & restrictions, or granted professional lawn care businesses with an exception status.  NO one wants this #@!!% nonsense.  The green alternative pesticides & practices used for controlling pests & fertilizing turf & ornamental plants are almost totally ineffective & will require frequent rescue treatments with conventional pest control products.  In many cases, green alternative pesticides are questionably higher in toxicity, pose higher environmental risks, & may be deemed unsafe for children, adults, & the environment.  Many green alternative pesticides are NOT even federally-registered & tested for the safety of human health & the environment.  Many green alternative pesticides have NOT been tested by Good Laboratory Practice ( GLP ) qualified laboratories, as is the case with conventional pest control products registered by the federal government.  Many green alternative pesticides are NOT proven to be scientifically safe.  In many cases, these alternatives should NOT be allowed anywhere near children.  In some cases, they may be considered as unsafe as using Agent Orange, DDT, & other banned products.  Green alternatives must be avoided.  Fortunately, conventional pest control products are safe, effective, economical, & low-risk.
