Is Junk Science & Fake News
Epidemiology is the statistical study of the incidence of disease in human populations. Epidemiology CANNOT be relied upon alone, and must be backed-up with animal toxicity studies. Epidemiology studies that identify potential associations must be confirmed with well-conducted animal toxicity studies that are specifically designed to elicit toxic effects over a series of dose levels. These animal toxicity studies are assessed to determine if there is any biological basis for the potential associations noted in epidemiology studies. The examination of animal toxicity studies 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 Pest Management Regulatory Agency ( PMRA ) undertakes this kind of assessment to supplement information about potential 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 studies.
The classic examples of properly applied statistical epidemiology are food poisoning incidents and the link between heavy smoking and lung cancer. For decades, left-wing fanatжcal government officials have been disregarding the near-worthlessness of statistical epidemiology.
Nonetheless, left-wing fanatжcal government officials conveniently avoid the fact that epidemiology is merely statistical analysis. Statistical epidemiology is NOT science, and does NOT provide biological or medical explanations for its purported results. Statistical epidemiology is most useful when looking for high rates of rare disease in a population. Left-wing officials spread fake-news & junk statistical epidemiology for their own nefarious purposes.
Left-wing fanatжcal government officials have despicably exploited junk statistical epidemiology to justify the reckless & arbitrary prohibition against pest control products used in the urban landscape. Just one example of the significance of the problem of junk statistical epidemiology is the legislation & imposition of Ontario’s Cosmetic Pesticides Ban Act. As we all know, Ontario’s provincial prohibition has been responsible for destroying 100s of businesses and 1000s of professional jobs in the professional lawn care industry. http://wp.me/P1jq40-238 Ontario’s prohibition, based upon junk epidemiology, led to catastrophic business & financial carnage, without providing any health, environmental or economic benefits whatsoever. https://wp.me/P1jq40-43B
Junk statistical epidemiology relies on secret data, and have been either poorly or even fraudulently conducted & reviewed, as exemplified in the literature review concocted by Ontario College of Family Physicians ( OCFP ). Any competent literature review clearly demonstrates that pest control products are scientifically-safe, and WILL NOT cause harm to people, animals, or the environment. http://wp.me/p1jq40-7HR http://wp.me/P1jq40-2ha http://wp.me/p1jq40-5ni If a conventional pest control product actually caused cancer, it is fairly certain that this would be ascertained through the extensive testing procedures required before it is registered for use. The idea that there is an epidemic of human cancer caused by synthetic industrial chemicals is NOT supported by either toxicology or statistical epidemiology.
OCFP is operated by discredited, radical, & scientifically ignorant mad-men pretending to be scientists, who are too lazy & too stupid to conduct a competent literature review. Observers justifiably complain that OCFP spreads fake-news & junk statistical epidemiology that will unjustifiably harm our economy and standard of living for decades. Not surprisingly, OCFP is a principal architect in the conspiracy to prohibit against pest control products used in the urban landscape. http://wp.me/P1jq40-37C In Ontario & elsewhere, left-wing fanatжcal government officials outrageously exploit junk statistical epidemiology as weapons of coercion and ultimate environmental terrжr in order to promote their pesticide-hating agendas.
Pest control products are scientifically-safe, and there is NO scientific basis for pesticide bans. Statistical epidemiology is wrong, and nearly worthless for the assessment of pest control products.
