AGRICULTURE – ORGANIC FOOD – NIGHTMARE & EXTORTION – DISMALLY BOGUS

 

 

 

 

In the 9|11 Era of the Organic Nightmare  …

 

 

Enviro-Lunatics and Organic-Lunatics have been WRONG and have been DEBUNKED about  …

 

« Healthier » Organic Food

 

Global Warming

 

Pest Control Products

 

In the glory years of the ORGANIC HOAX, many derived PROFIT from the GRAVY TRAIN of awards, speech fees, grants, and the profits of Organic Food.

 

Organic-Lunatics exist for one reason and one only  …

 

…  and that is to MAKE MONEY.

 

The Organic-Lunatic INTELLECTUAL CLAP-TRAP added up to a TOTALITARIAN BELIEF that people who disagree should be OSTRACIZED or CONDEMNED or MARGINALIZED.

 

Organic-Lunatics are becoming increasingly desperate as THEIR DREAMS OF IMMENSE FINANCIAL PROFITS ARE FALLING APART.

 

The desperation of Organic-Lunatics is palpable.

 

Organic-Lunatics relied upon lies, fear-mongering, junk science, misconceptions, coercion, threats, deceptions, terror, and paranoid conspiracies.

 

They CONCOCTED FRAUDULENT AND IMAGINARY DANGERS such as the so-called threat of PEST CONTROL PRODUCTS !

 

THESE BASTERDS CAN NEVER BE TRUSTED !

 

LYING, CHEATING, and FRAUD are the ONLY ways to make Organic Food Production appear to work effectively.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Organic Food Dismally BOGUS

 

 

Once upon a time  …

 

…  Organic-Lunatics and Anti-Pesticide Activists CONCOCTED THE THEORY that eventually it should be possible to PROHIBIT THE USE OF PEST CONTROL PRODUCTS in the Agriculture Industry.

 

Once upon a time  …

 

…  these Non-Expert Activists also ALLEGED that Organic Pesticide-Free Food was somehow a safer alternative to Conventional Food.

 

Organic-Lunatics and Anti-Pesticide Activists DECEIVED THE PUBLIC with the expectation that pest control products will someday and somehow NO LONGER BE NECESSAY FOR AGRICULTURE.

 

Unfortunately, these Non-Expert Activists have completed their DESTRUCTION of the Professional Lawn Care Industry, they will TERRORIZE and DESTROY the Agriculture Industry next !

 

Allegations about Organic Pesticide-Free Food were/are BOGUS.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Organic Extortion Racket

 

 

In Canada, Organic Certification is little more than an EXTORTION RACKET.

 

Organic Pesticide-Free Food is NOT TESTED before it is CERTIFIED, thus MAKING ORGANIC CERTIFICATION ESSENTIALLY MEANINGLESS.

 

MANDATORY LABORATORY TESTING would ensure that Organic Food is actually farmed without pesticides.

 

With NO VERIFICATION THROUGH TESTING, the Organic Industry operates on a BOGUS HONOUR SYSTEM, providing a clear INVITATION FOR FRAUD AND ABUSE.

 

Consumers are PAYING A HEFTY PREMIUM FOR ORGANIC CERTIFICATION THAT REQUIRES NO PROOF.

 

Organic Pesticide-Free Food amounts to little more than an EXTORTION RACKET, one that the greediest of mafiosi would envy.

 

In fact, Organic Food Production DOES NOT WORK and is A DISMAL FAILURE !

 

There are NO viable, efficacious, economical, or low-risk alternatives and practices to replace conventional pest control products.

 

It is IMPOSSIBLE for growers to provide so-called Organic Food that is Pesticide Free.

 

LYING, CHEATING, and FRAUD are the ONLY ways to make Organic Pesticide-Free Food Production appear to work effectively

Organic Food Was NOT Healthier

 

 

Eating Organic Pesticide-Free Food will NOT make you healthier, according to researchers at Stanford University.

 

The research, published in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine on September 4th, 2012, looked at 17 studies comparing people who ate Organic Pesticide-Free Food with those who did not and 223 studies that compared the levels of nutrients, bacteria, fungus or pesticides in various foods  –  including fruits, vegetables, grains, meats, milk and eggs.

 

The study from Stanford University showed only MINOR DIFFERENCES between Organic Pesticide-Free Food and their Conventionally-Farmed counterparts.

 

There are NO nutritional or safety differences between Organic Pesticide-Free Foods produced according to organic standards and those produced by means of conventional agricultural methods.

 

There is NO SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE that Organic Pesticide-Free Foods is better than Conventional Food.

 

« Healthier » Organic Food is a MYTH, and has been DEBUNKED !

 

Organic-Lunatics and Enviro-Lunatics were also WRONG about several other issues  …

 

Global Warming was also a MYTH, and was DEBUNKED !

 

DDT was NOT a cancer hazard !

 

Enviro-Lunatics were even PERSISTENTLY WRONG about the issue of cancer and conventional pest control products.

 

Enviro-Lunatics have relied upon JUNK SCIENCE, FEAR-MONGERING, and ALARM for OVER 50 YEARS !

 

Our society is BROKEN AND DEPRAVED because it has been subjected to OVER 50 YEARS OF TERROR AND PARANOIA from Enviro-Basterds who CANNOT BE TRUSTED !

« Dirty Dozen » DEBUNKED

 

 

Environmental Working Group, a US-based Environmental-Terrorist Organization, has been attempting to SCARE CONSUMERS about RESIDUES of pest control products by CONCOCTING so-called « Dirty Dozen » lists of fruits and vegetables that it ALLEGES pose some kind of IMAGINARY DANGER to adults and their children.

 

Fruits and vegetable that are PESTICIDE-TREATED are SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE since government agencies build in IMMENSE SAFETY FACTORS to comply with Reference Dose and Acceptable Daily Intake recommendations.

 

Researchers Winter and Katz found that FRUITS and VEGETABLES contain RESIDUES of pest control products that are essentially A MILLION TIMES BELOW THE « NO EFFECT » LEVELS found in the animal toxicity tests.

 

Results from the Winter and Katz study strongly suggest that consumer exposure to the ten most common pest control products found on the so-called « Dirty Dozen » produce items are several orders of magnitude BELOW levels required to cause a biological effect in any test animals.

 

The likelihood of the various RESIDUES « synergizing » into high risks is also NEGLIGIBLE.

 

The Winter and Katz study says « buying organic » WILL NOT DO MUCH REDUCE YOUR RISKS OF GETTING CANCER.

 

This was confirmed by Dr. Bruce Nathan Ames, who said « going organic » will reduce your exposure to carcinogens by about ONE TEN-THOUSANDTH OF ONE PER CENT.

The Public Need Not Fear Pesticide Residue

 

 

According to Dr. Lorne Hepworth of CropLife Canada  ―

 

It’s unfortunate that [ Anti-Pesticide Activists perpetuate ] the MYTH OF PESTICIDE RESIDUES on foods that Canadians rely on for good health.

 

It would be extremely unfortunate if consumers avoided certain fruits and vegetables due to unfounded pesticide fears when the health benefits of these foods are so clearly evident.

 

Canada has one of the most modern and stringent pesticide regulatory systems in the world.

 

This means that whether the food you eat is grown conventionally or organically, it is among the SAFEST FOOD available anywhere.

 

Both organic and conventionally grown foods use crop protection tools that have been approved through Health Canada  —   the difference generally is that conventional farmers use modern synthetic products.

 

Recent data from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency shows about 88 per cent of all fresh food items and 90 per cent of processed food items show no traces of pesticides.

 

And in instances where trace amounts of pesticides are found on food, they are at such LOW LEVELS it is impossible to imagine a way to eat enough of it for there to be any harmful impact.

 

Consumers can be assured that pesticides receive a greater breadth of scrutiny than any other regulated product in Canada.

 

Health Canada undertakes a thorough scientific review and risk assessment of every pesticide before registering it for use to ensure it DOES NOT POSE A HEALTH RISK to farmers using the products or to families at the dinner table.

 

The important thing is that people get enough fruits and vegetables to meet the recommendations in Health Canada’s food guide.

 

Canadians should feel confident about making healthy food choices knowing that our food supply is both safe and affordable.

Pesticide Residues On Food Are Safe

 

 

In 2012, the Agriculture Industry took to the U.S. Capitol Hill to tout a new report that seeks to dispel « myths » about the dangers of pesticides.

 

The report, « Pesticides and Health : Myths and Realities », was written by Dr. Allan S. Felsot, an Environmental Toxicologist at Washington State University, and published by American Council On Science And Health ( ACSH ).

 

It argues that PESTICIDE TECHNOLOGIES HAVE EVOLVED TO THE POINT WHERE THEY POSE LITTLE RISK TO HUMAN HEALTH WHILE PROTECTING THE WORLD’S FOOD SUPPLY.

 

The report also seeks to strongly push back against public health advocates who sound the alarm about protecting the country’s food from pesticides.

 

According to Dr. Allan S. Felsot  ―

 

Despite the headlines of hazard, modern chemical technology provides hope for continued improvement of human health, whether helping to make vegetables and fruits of high quality more abundant and cheaper, or to preserve ( or indeed, enhance ) the health of individuals and society at large.

 

When you pick up food, you are eating thousands of chemicals at a time.

 

Bearded, bespectacled and with a long pony-tail, Dr. Felsot  —  who spent time briefing law-makers on Capitol Hill  —  might not look like the typical Agriculture Industry spokesman.

 

But Dr. Felsot took issue with several public health advocacy reports, most notably the Environmental Working Group’s ( EWG ) Anti-Pesticide Shopper’s Guide,  « Dirty Dozen », which ranks fruits and vegetables based on pesticide residues.

 

The report, Dr. Felsot said, FAILED TO TAKE INTO ACCOUNT WHETHER THE PESTICIDE RESIDUES POSE A HEALTH RISK  ―

 

Foods have pesticides residues on them. 

 

Period. 

 

That’s completely why what they did is WRONG.

No Traces Of Pesticides At All

 

 

According to Dr. Hepworth on July 31st, 2012  ―

 

Canada has one of the most modern and stringent pesticide regulatory systems in the world.

 

This means that whether the food you eat is grown conventionally or organically, it is among the safest food available anywhere.

 

Both organic and conventionally grown foods use an array of pesticides that have all been approved by Health Canada to control threats to their crops.

 

No matter how your food is grown, what you should be more concerned about is how your food was handled before you bought it  —  bacterial contamination is an actual and significant health threat.

 

When it comes to pesticide residues on food, recent data from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency shows that about 88 per cent of all fresh food items and 90 per cent of processed food items contain NO TRACES OF PESTICIDES AT ALL.

 

And in instances where trace amounts of pesticides are found on food, they are at such low levels it is impossible to imagine a way to eat enough of it for there to be any harmful impact whatsoever.

 

Consumers can be assured that pesticides receive a greater breadth of scrutiny than any other regulated product in Canada.

 

Health Canada, which is one of the most respected regulatory agencies in the world, undertakes a thorough scientific review and risk assessment of every pesticide before registering it for use to ensure it does not pose a health risk to farmers using the products or to families at the dinner table.

99.6 Per Cent Food Compliance

 

 

Canada's Food Safety Action Plan ( FSAP ) aims to modernize and enhance Canada's food safety system.

 

As a part of the FSAP enhanced surveillance initiative, targeted surveys are used to test various foods for specific hazards.

 

The main objective of the pesticide residues in fresh fruit and vegetables targeted survey was to provide baseline surveillance data for pesticide residues in those foods sold intra-provincially ( i.e., non-federally registered and not imported ).

 

This will assess the potential exposure of Canadians who obtain their fresh fruit and vegetables from a geographically localized region.

 

Currently, federally registered agricultural commodities are monitored by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency ( CFIA ) under the National Chemistry Residue Monitoring Program ( NCRMP ).

 

The 2009-2010 Pesticide Residues Survey targeted apples, small berries, leafy greens ( i.e., lettuce ) and tomatoes that are traditionally outside the CFIA core activities.

 

For the purposes of this targeted survey, non-federally registered foods are those foods that are sold within the province they are produced/grown ( i.e., the foods do not cross the provincial boundary ).

 

In total, 1000 apples, 943 small berries, 525 lettuce and 610 tomato samples were collected in CFIA's four operational areas (Atlantic, Quebec, Ontario and West).

 

The 3078 samples collected were analysed for over 400 different pesticide residues.

 

50% of the apple samples collected contained NO DETECTABLE PESTICIDE RESIDUES.

 

While 50.5 per cent, 71.8 per cent and 76.7 per cent of small berries, leafy greens and tomatoes contained NO DETECTABLE PESTICIDE RESIDUES, respectively.

 

In total there were 84 different pesticide residues detected.

 

Less than 1 per cent ( 11 samples ) of the total 3078 samples collected contained pesticide residues in violation of established Maximum Residue Limits.

 

7 of the 11 violations occurred in leafy greens followed by 3 violations in small berries, and 1 violation in tomatoes.

 

All violations were assessed and appropriate follow-up actions reflecting the magnitude of the health risk were taken.

 

The overall compliance rate of this targeted survey was 99.6 per cent.

Consumed Toxins

 

 

According to Robert Wager  ―

 

It is well documented that 99.9 per cent of all the toxins we consume on a daily basis are from natural sources.

 

When plants are exposed to insect attack the plants fight back by producing thousands of very toxic compounds.

 

Of the few hundred that have been analyzed, fully one third are carcinogenic.

 

But not to worry, just like trace amounts of synthetic pesticides, the small amounts of naturally derived toxins are not a significant health issue.

 

A multi-decade U.S. National Cancer Institute study looked at farm workers, professional pesticide applicators and their families.

 

The result was these groups, with higher exposure to pesticides than the average person, had lower cancer rates than the general public.

 

Therefore the link between cancer and the vast majority of pesticide exposure has been DEBUNKED.

Pest Control Products CANNOT BE PROHIBITED in Agriculture

 

 

ALLEGATIONS by activists that Organic Pesticide-Free Food will someday replace conventional food are LUDICROUS.

 

Even MORE LUDICROUS is the expectation that pest control products will someday and somehow no longer be necessary for agriculture.

 

Modern pest control products are critical tools that farmers use to protect their crops from potentially devastating pests.

 

In fact, without pest control products, the world would lose at least 40 per cent of its food supply.

 

According to Dr. Norman Borlaug  …  ANY RESTRICTION on the use of pest control products would result in a SUBSTANTIAL REDUCTION IN HARVESTS and a related SUBSTANTIAL INCREASE IN FOOD COSTS, LACK OF AFFORDABLE FOOD, HUGE INCREASES IN STARVATION, and tens of thousands of additional DEATHS among the poor of the world.

 

Even if you could use all the organic material that you have ( i.e. the animal manures, the human waste, the plant residues ), and get them back on the soil, YOU COULD NOT FEED MORE THAN FOUR BILLION PEOPLE.

 

If all agriculture were organic, you would have to INCREASE CROP-LAND AREA DRAMATICALLY, spreading out into marginal areas and cutting down millions of acres of forests.

 

Organic Pesticide-Free Production, with no use of conventional pest control products, CANNOT MATCH THE PRODUCTION OF CONVENTIONAL FARMING.

 

Organic Pesticide-Free Production is INCAPABLE of feeding the entire world.

 

Dr. Norman Borlaug ( 1914 – 2009 ) was a Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and the man credited with saving millions of lives through his development of the Green Revolution.

 

The Precautionary Principle weighs even more strongly AGAINST the PROHIBITION of AGRICULTURAL pest control products.

 

The Precautionary Principle would clearly and strongly dictate that agricultural pest control products NOT BE BANNED.

Food Standards Agency  ―  Organic Food Was BOGUS

 

 

On January 29th, 2009, a review from Food Standards Agency confirmed that Organic Pesticide-Free Food was BOGUS.

 

Organic Pesticide-Free Food was NOT a safer or better alternative to Conventional Food.

 

The focus of the Food Standards Agency review was the NUTRITIONAL CONTENT OF FOOD-STUFFS.

 

This review was PEER-REVIEWED and PUBLISHED by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

 

The review CONFIRMED that there were NO IMPORTANT DIFFERENCES IN THE NUTRITION CONTENT, or ANY ADDITIONAL HEALTH BENEFITS, OF ORGANIC FOOD WHEN COMPARED WITH CONVENTIONALLY-PRODUCED FOOD. 

 

The review, which took the form of a « systematic review of literature », was carried out by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine ( LSHTM ), and was commissioned by the Food Standards Agency.

 

LSHTM’s team of researchers, led by Dr. Alan Dangour, reviewed ALL PAPERS PUBLISHED OVER THE PAST FIFTY YEARS that related to the NUTRIENT CONTENT and HEALTH DIFFERENCES BETWEEN ORGANIC AND CONVENTIONAL FOOD. 

 

This systematic review was THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE STUDY in this area that has been carried out to date.

 

Food Standards Agency commissioned this research as part of its commitment to giving consumers accurate information about their food, based on the most up-to-date science.

 

This research was split into two separate parts, one of which looked at differences in nutrient levels and their significance, while the other looked at the health benefits of eating Organic Pesticide-Free Food.

Food Standards Agency  ―  Organic Nutrition NOT Superior

 

 

According to Dr. Alan Dangour, of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine’s Nutrition and Public Health Intervention Research Unit, and the principal author of the review  ―

 

A small number of differences in nutrient content were found to exist between organically and conventionally produced crops and livestock, but these are UNLIKELY TO BE OF ANY PUBLIC HEALTH RELEVANCE.

 

More, according to Dr. Alan Dangour  ―

 

Our review indicates that there is currently NO EVIDENCE to support the selection of organically over conventionally produced foods on the basis of NUTRITIONAL SUPERIORITY.

Food Standards Agency  ―  NO Difference Between Organic & Conventional Food

 

 

According to Gill Fine, Director of Consumer Choice and Dietary Health at Food Standards Agency  ―

 

Ensuring people have accurate information is absolutely essential in allowing us all to make INFORMED CHOICES about the food we eat.

 

This study does not mean that people should not eat organic food.

 

What it shows is that THERE IS LITTLE, IF ANY, NUTRITIONAL DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ORGANIC AND CONVENTIONALLY PRODUCED FOOD, and THAT THERE IS NO EVIDENCE OF ADDITIONAL HEALTH BENEFITS FROM EATING ORGANIC FOOD.

 

The Agency supports consumer choice and is neither pro nor anti organic food.

 

We recognise that there are many reasons why people choose to eat organic, such as animal welfare or environmental concerns.

 

The Agency will continue to give consumers accurate information about their food based on the best available scientific evidence.

ALLEGATIONS by activists that Organic Pesticide-Free Food will someday replace conventional food are LUDICROUS.

Unfortunately, once Anti-Pesticide Activists have COMPLETED their DESTRUCTION of the Professional Lawn Care Industry, they will TERRORIZE and DESTROY the Agriculture Industry NEXT !

 

The DESTRUCTION of these industries is, or will be, the result of the CARNAGE caused by the PROHIBITION of conventional pest control products.

 

We are expected to believe that Anti-Pesticide Activists are a credible group of environmentalists.

 

Anti-Pesticide Activists certainly cannot be trusted about Organic Pesticide-Free Food.

 

Anti-Pesticide Activists are NOT researchers.

 

They are NOT scientists.

 

They were TOTALLY WRONG about Organic Pesticide-Free Food.

 

To be blunt, Anti-Pesticide Activists CANNOT BE TRUSTED regarding pest control products !

Organic Food Is NOT Safer

 

 

As far as buying only Organic Pesticide-Free Food is concerned, Doctor Leonard Ritter has stated that there is NO evidence that organic is necessarily safer than conventionally-grown produce.

 

Actually, Doctor Ritter noted, Organic Producers have shifted their message from safety to focus on the importance of life-style and sustainable agriculture.

The dangers of genetically modified crops and food are imaginary and after 25 years of study the European Union stated the risk from Genetically-Modified Crops and Food are in no way greater than from conventionally bred plants.

 

This is the same safe opinion that every single food safety authority in the world holds.

 

The colony collapse disorder has absolutely nothing to do with GM crops as the same collapse is occurring in Europe and there are no Genetically-Modified Crops grown there.

 

This is another of the many myths by propagated by anti-GM activists.

Pest Control Products Are SCIENTIFICALLY-SAFE

 

 

According to Dr. Lorne Hepworth of CropLife Canada  ―

 

Surely we can all agree that FACTS AND SCIENCE SHOULD GUIDE THE REGULATION OF PESTICIDES.  Unfortunately, activists advocating a ban disagree because in this case, THE FACTS ARE NOT ON THEIR SIDE.  And WHEN THE FACTS DON’T SUPPORT THEIR POSITION, ACTIVISTS PREFER TO IGNORE THEM.

 

Scientific research shows that, as reported through Health Canada’s VAST TOXICOLOGY DATABASE, NO HARM WILL OCCUR when pest control products are used properly.

 

The RISK ASSESSMENT of pest control products indicates that they are PRACTICALLY-NON-TOXIC.

 

Consequently, it is a fact that pest control products cause NO HARM, including chronic effects such as CANCER.

 

NO pest control product can be sold or used until Health Canada’s scientists have evaluated ALL the existing evidence to determine whether the product meets stringent health and safety requirements. 

 

Health Canada oversees the testing and approval of pest control products by using SOUND SCIENCE in order to ensure that they are SCIENTIFICALLY-SAFE.

 

Conventional pest control products are SCIENTIFICALLY-SAFE, EFFECTIVE, ECONOMICAL, and LOW-RISK, and NO HARM WILL OCCUR when they are used according to label directions.

 

The ASSESSMENT proving that pest control products are SCIENTIFICALLY-SAFE is a process that can take up to TEN YEARS and COST HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS.

 

The cost to manufacturers to get EVERY pest control product from the lab to store shelves is about 250 MILLION DOLLARS.

 

Canada has one of the MOST STRINGENT REGULATORY APPROVAL SYSTEMS in the world.

 

Health Canada requires each new pest control product to go through a comprehensive set of over TWO-HUNDRED SEPARATE TESTS and a review of all scientifically credible studies that exist to ensure that the product will NOT CAUSE HARM TO PEOPLE, ANIMALS OR THE ENVIRONMENT.

 

Overall, when pest control products are used properly, there are NO harmful irreversible effects to health and the environment !

 

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

 

By comparison, there are THOUSANDS OF DEATHS per year from KNOWN CANCER-CAUSING SUBSTANCES such as cigarette smoke and alcohol. 

 

Only those pest control products that pose NO UNACCEPTABLE RISK to human health or the environment become HEALTH-CANADA-APPROVED and FEDERALLY-LEGAL. 

 

Consequently, pest control products are  …

 

●   Health-Canada-Approved

 

●   Federally-Legal

 

●   Safe For Children  *

 

●   Scientifically-Safe

 

●   Practically-Non-Toxic

 

●   Good for the Environment

 

*  Except when stored improperly.

 

Furthermore, when pest control products are used properly, they  …

 

●   Cause No Harm

 

●   Do Not Cause Cancer

 

●   Do Not Run-Off Into Lakes and Streams

 

●   Enhance the Urban Landscape

 

●   Vastly Improve Agricultural Production

 

PROHIBITION is NOT necessary because, overall, when pest control products are used properly, there are NO harmful irreversible effects to health and the environment !

 

Pest control products contribute to HEALTHIER COMMUNITIES, and GREATER WELL-BEING and PROSPERITY.
