Glyphosate Herbicide WILL NOT Cause Cancer – Glyphosate Vindicated Around The World – 2016 09 30
GLYPHOSATE HERBICIDE ( ROUNDUP ) WILL NOT CAUSE CANCER !
The unfounded chemophobic assault against science has been NEUTRALIZED !
The lies and the false allegations by anti-pesticide & environmental-terrorists masquerading as health experts have been REFUTED !
THE PESTICIDE-HATING IARC HAS BEEN DISCREDITED !
The false-accusations of cancer by International Agency for Research on Cancer ( IARC ) have been SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN AS WRONG !
GLYPHOSATE HAS BEEN VINDICATED AROUND THE WORLD !
Glyphosate will NOT cause cancer, according to LEADING SCIENTIFIC EXPERTS in Australia, European Union, Genotoxic Expert Panel Review, New Zealand, Nova Scotia, Switzerland, United Nations, and United States ( America ).
National Regulatory Agencies and LEADING EXPERTS are siding with the OVERWHELMING SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE DEMONSTRATING THAT GLYPHOSATE WILL NOT CAUSE CANCER !
There is neither biomedical nor epidemiological evidence to support the claim that Glyphosate causes cancer.
GLYPHOSATE HAS BEEN VINDICATED BY AMERICA !
The United States has declared that the US Environmental Protection Agency ( US EPA ) GIVEN GLYPHOSATE ITS SAFEST POSSIBLE CLASSIFICATION.
GLYPHOSATE HAS BEEN VINDICATED BY AUSTRALIA !
Australian concerns about the effect of Glyphosate on health have been TOTALLY REFUTED, with the government concluding that GLYPHOSATE DOES NOT POSE A CANCER RISK TO HUMANS.
GLYPHOSATE HAS BEEN VINDICATED BY THE EUROPEAN UNION !
Europeans are REJECTING GREENPEACE’S FEAR-MONGERING, and are indicating that THE JIG IS UP. THE POLITICAL TIDE, BOOSTED BY EVIDENCE, IS STARTING TO TURN IN FAVOR OF GLYPHOSATE.
GLYPHOSATE HAS BEEN VINDICATED BY GENOTOXIC EXPERT PANEL REVIEW !
The Genotoxic Expert Panel Review has REFUTED THE IDEA THAT GLYPHOSATE CAUSES CANCER. This group of 16 LEADING SCIENTIFIC EXPERTS, from Canada, the United States, Denmark, Brazil, the United Kingdom, and other countries, has DECISIVELY CONCLUDED that GLYPHOSATE IS UNLIKELY TO POSE A CARCINOGENIC RISK TO HUMANS. The Genotoxic Expert Panel Review DISAGREED with the conclusion of the International Agency for Research on Cancer ( IARC ) that there is sufficient evidence that Glyphosate is carcinogenic for lab animals such as mice and rates.
GLYPHOSATE HAS BEEN VINDICATED BY NEW ZEALAND !
New Zealand has REBUKED the International Agency for Research on Cancer ( IARC ) by announcing that it found NO GLYPHOSATE-CANCER LINK. Furthermore, the government has stated that Glyphosate is UNLIKELY TO BE CARCINOGENIC AND SHOULD NOT BE CLASSIFIED AS A MUTAGEN OR CARCINOGEN.
GLYPHOSATE HAS BEEN VINDICATED BY NOVA SCOTIA !
In the Province of Nova Scotia, the Chief Public Health Office has issued a statement saying that THERE IS NO EVIDENCE THAT GLYPHOSATE CREATES A RISK TO HUMAN HEALTH IF USED PROPERLY. Additionally, EVEN WATER CAN BE TOXIC IF TOO MUCH IS CONSUMED IN A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME.
GLYPHOSATE HAS BEEN VINDICATED BY SWITZERLAND !
Another victory for evidence-based science has been won in Switzerland, where the government has stated that THERE WAS INSUFFICIENT SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE TO JUSTIFY A BAN ON THE GENERAL USE OF GLYPHOSATE, ESPECIALLY FOR FARMING.
GLYPHOSATE HAS BEEN VINDICATED BY THE UNITED NATIONS !
The World Health Organization ( WHO ) and the Food and Agriculture Organization ( FAO ), both agencies of the United Nations, have stated that GLYPHOSATE IS UNLIKELY TO POSE A CARCINOGENIC RISK TO HUMANS.
GLYPHOSATE IS SCIENTIFICALLY-SAFE AND WILL CAUSE NO HARM !

Selected And Adapted Excerpts
Unfounded Chemophobic Assault Against Science
According to the American Council on Science and Health ( ACSH ), THERE HAS BEEN A LONG HISTORY OF RIDICULOUS FEAR-MONGERING BY ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVISTS MASQUERADING AS HEALTH EXPERTS !
BPA, MSG, Alar, DDT, and food coloring, are just a handful of chemicals that FELL PREY TO OVERBLOWN FEARS OR OUTRIGHT FABRICATIONS.
Today, the whipping boy that takes the brunt of the UNFOUNDED CHEMOPHOBIC ASSAULT AGAINST SCIENCE is the herbicide Glyphosate.
BACKGROUND INFORMATION ― THE EFFECT OF GLYPHOSATE ON HEALTH IS A MYTH ! ― The trends AGAINST pesticide bans and restrictions are relentless and unceasing. NO ONE WANTS THIS #@!!% BAN NONSENSE ! The whole truth about Glyphosate can be explored through the following links …
Mr Hugh Grant, Chairman and CEO of Monsanto, has responded to the UNFOUNDED CONCERNS about Glyphosate …
Question ― What Part Of The Concern Do You Understand ?!?!
Response By Mr Hugh Grant ―
I think in the U.S. today there is still a VERY SIGNIFICANT MISUNDERSTANDING ABOUT SCIENCE.
When you think about the consumer today, there’s more work to be done in helping to explain the science behind these technologies, so I think a lot of the concern comes through that.
My experience has been, when you can explain what these products do and you can explain the EXTRAORDINARY BENEFITS that they bring to growers and to society, you usually meet a middle ground.
That’s been my experience over the years.
Demonizing MonSATAN By Left-Wing Jihadists
Glyphosate is DEMONIZED primarily for one reason ― Monsanto.
To many of its irrational detractors, who refer to the company as MonSATAN, anything the company touches is, by definition, EVIL. [ ?!?! ]
The seed giant genetically engineered some of its crops to be resistant to Glyphosate so that farmers could spray it on their fields; the crops would survive while the weeds were destroyed.
It’s NOT a perfect solution.
For instance, Glyphosate resistance among weeds is becoming a larger problem.
While the threat of Glyphosate-resistant weeds is a nuisance for farmers, it won’t really scare anybody.
BACKGROUND INFORMATION ― RESPONSE TO LEFT-WING GLYPHOSATE-HATING JIHADISTS ! ― Anti-Monsanto ?!?! Monsanto is evil ?!?! What the heck does that mean ?!?! Will nothing this manufacturer does EVER be acceptable ?!?! Probably not. By what authority or standard ?!?! Yours ?!?! You have NO training, NO background, and NO education on this issue. This is yet another left-wing anti-business conspiracy jihad espoused by pesticide-hating fanatics who know NOTHING about pest control products. It must make left-wing lunatics like you berserk that this product is still around after two generations. Why ?!?! Because Roundup is scientifically-safe, practically non-toxic, will cause NO harm, WILL NOT cause cancer, and WILL NOT even cause irreversible damage if consumed orally.
Mr Hugh Grant, Chairman and CEO of Monsanto, has responded to the demonizing of Monsanto …
Question ― Why Do You Think Monsanto Has Become THE FACE OF CORPORATE EVIL In This Country ?!?!
Response By Mr Hugh Grant ―
I think a piece of this comes with ― we’re the market leader, the original inventor of a lot of these technologies and I think sometimes when you’re first out the gate, when you’re in a leadership position like that, you become the de facto spear catcher.
I think for us that was maybe the genesis of this, and I think there’s a piece of, also, this ― we’re right in the middle of this discussion on food and agriculture and the safety and security of food, so I understand some of the concern.
But I think, nevertheless, there’s work to be done in explaining more clearly where food comes from and how food is produced.

False-Accusations Of Cancer By IARC
So, in an effort to attack both Monsanto and GMO crops in general, ANTI-SCIENCE FOOD ACTIVISTS ACCUSED Glyphosate of CAUSING CANCER. [ ?!?! ]
BACKGROUND INFORMATION ― IARC AND ITS DISTORTED, BIASED, & UNBALANCED GLYPHOSATE-HATING FANATICISM ! ―
Glyphosate ( Roundup ) will NOT cause cancer. The IARC’s anti-glyphosate report was WRONG.
On March 20th, 2015, IARC arbitrarily classified the herbicide Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, as « probably carcinogenic » on the basis of « limited evidence » of cancer among humans. International Agency for Research on Cancer ( IARC ) is ridiculously implying that its false-evaluation of Glyphosate ( Roundup ) is somehow being withheld from U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ( US EPA ), German Federal Institute For Risk Assessment, Health Canada, and EVERY other science-based national regulatory agency in the world.
In fact, IARC has NOT classified Glyphosate as « carcinogenic to humans », but merely as « probably carcinogenic ». Hence, Glyphosate WILL NOT cause cancer ! If the IARC hazard report against Glyphosate is truly valid, then why doesn’t WHO itself demand more government regulation ?!?! Why should national regulatory agencies listen to IARC when it is ignored by WHO ?!?! In fact, Glyphosate WILL NOT cause harm and WILL NOT cause cancer !
This is utter nonsense [ by the IARC report ], but thankfully …

Glyphosate: Facts are very hard to find in the Glyphosate fear-mongering campaigns. When a herbicide so beneficial to farmers is less toxic than salt or vinegar, would entail a personal daily consumption of over 400 kg of fruit and vegetables to pose any health hazard and has been subject to thousands of studies, and still suffers relentless attacks from those without toxicological backgrounds, it is evident that stupid has reared its ugly face. Stupid even got inside of IARC, but that apparently is NOT very difficult.

United States ( US )
In September 2016, the US Environmental Protection Agency [ US EPA ] made the following declaration.
The EPA Gave Glyphosate Its
Safest Possible Classification
BACKGROUND INFORMATION ― UNITED NATIONS ― THE US EPA IS SUCCESSFULLY SEPARATING A HEALTH SCARE FROM A HEALTH THREAT ! ―
On September 12th, 2016, the United States Environmental Protection Agency ( US EPA ) reported that Glyphosate DOES NOT CAUSE CANCER. According to the US EPA, « the available data at this time DO NOT SUPPORT A CARCINOGENIC PROCESS for Glyphosate ». The US EPA’s assessment of Glyphosate was based upon an extensive data-base exists for evaluating the carcinogenic potential of Glyphosate, including 23 epidemiological studies, 15 animal carcinogenicity studies, and nearly 90 genotoxicity studies for the active ingredient Glyphosate.
On April 29th, 2016, the US EPA had also classified Glyphosate as « Not Likely To Be Carcinogenic To Humans », the SAFEST CLASSIFICATION on the scale. The US EPA’s assessment of Glyphosate DISCREDITED the anti-Glyphosate report by International Agency for Research on Cancer ( IARC ) which CONVENIENTLY DISREGARDED SEVERAL STUDIES on the effects of exposure to Glyphosate purely on the basis that these studies showed NO positive results. The US EPA report also noted that the studies IARC chose to include in its report had SIGNIFICANT LIMITATIONS. Additionally, IARC’s anti-Glyphosate report was based on a review of the scientific literature that WAS NOT COMPREHENSIVE. IARC DELIBERATELY OVERSTATED THE RISKS with its arbitrary and selective « cherry picking » studies against Glyphosate.
NO PESTICIDE REGULATOR IN THE WORLD CONSIDERS Glyphosate TO BE A CARCINOGEN, and both US EPA reports once again reinforce this important fact. The US EPA is successfully separating a health scare from a health threat !

Now, another victory for evidence-based science has been won, this time in Switzerland.
According to Swissinfo, a news site based in Switzerland ―
The House of Representatives has REJECTED A PETITION from various [ anti-pesticide & environmental-terrorist ] organizations such as Greenpeace and the Consumers’ Association for French-speaking Switzerland, which have been CALLING FOR A BAN on the use of all synthetic chemical pesticides, such as the weed-killer ingredient Glyphosate.
A majority of parliamentarians said [ on September 30th, 2016 ] THERE WAS INSUFFICIENT SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE TO JUSTIFY A BAN ON THE GENERAL USE OF GLYPHOSATE, ESPECIALLY FOR FARMING.
European Union ( EU )
EUROPE IS NOTORIOUSLY AVERSE TO MODERN FOOD TECHNOLOGY !
So when Europeans, who have gone so far as to ENSHRINE THE PRECAUTIONARY PRINCIPLE INTO EU LAW, are REJECTING GREENPEACE’S FEAR-MONGERING, it indicates that THE JIG IS UP.
The Political Tide, Boosted By Evidence,
Is Starting To Turn In Favor Of Glyphosate !
BACKGROUND INFORMATION ― EUROPEAN UNION ― THE EFFECT OF GLYPHOSATE ON HEALTH IS A MYTH ! ― On June 28th, 2016, the European Union announced ITS APPROVAL FOR Glyphosate. After months of lobbying and member state indecision, the European Union replaced a previous proposal to RENEW THE LICENCE for Glyphosate for up to 15 years with a suggested 12- to 18-month EXTENSION pending further scientific study.

The concerns about the effect of Glyphosate on health have been TOTALLY REFUTED !
On October 4th, 2016, the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority ( APVMA ) published its assessment of the IARC report and other recent assessments against Glyphosate.
APVMA has concluded that …
Glyphosate DOES NOT Pose
A Cancer Risk To Humans
Concerns have been raised about human exposure to the common herbicide Glyphosate, following a FLAWED assessment by International Agency for Research on Cancer ( IARC ) which had classified Glyphosate in a group of chemicals that is « probably carcinogenic to humans ». [ ?!?! ]
The IARC concerns have been TOTALLY REFUTED in Australia.
Glyphosate is a broad-spectrum herbicide which works by inhibiting an enzyme found in plants.
There are around 500 products containing Glyphosate registered for use in Australia.
Glyphosate has been registered for use for over 40 years.

Unlikely To Be Carcinogenic
And Should NOT Be Classified
As A Mutagen Or Carcinogen
From the Executive Summary of the New Zealand Glyphosate Review ―
THE MAJORITY OF HUMAN STUDIES DID NOT SHOW AN ASSOCIATION BETWEEN EXPOSURE TO GLYPHOSATE AND CANCER.
Although a small number of studies with a limited number of participants [ used by WHO’s IARC committee in its decision that Glyphosate was « probably carcinogenic to humans » ] found a WEAK ASSOCIATION between Glyphosate exposure and increased risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma ( NHL ), others did not.
The studies that found NO ASSOCIATION between Glyphosate exposure and NHL included the largest and most reliable, which included over 50,000 participants.
Based on the INCONSISTENCY IN THE RESULTS of the studies on Glyphosate exposure and NHL, and the LACK OF ANY ASSOCIATION in the largest, most robust study, it was concluded that THERE IS NO CONVINCING EVIDENCE OF AN ASSOCIATION BETWEEN Glyphosate EXPOSURE AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF CANCER IN HUMANS.
The New Zealand Glyphosate Review takes into account studies reviewed by …

Government Of Nova Scotia
Nova Scotia Environment
In the Province of Nova Scotia, Chief Public Health Officer, Dr Robert Strang, is firing back over health concerns surrounding the province’s approval for the application of Glyphosate.
In August 2016, Nova Scotia Environment GAVE THE GREEN LIGHT to Northern Pulp, and three other companies, to spray more than 2,600 hectares of woodland in Colchester, Cumberland, Hants, and Pictou counties with VisionMax, which contains Glyphosate.
On September 2nd, 2016, Dr Strang issued a statement saying that …
There Is NO Evidence That
Glyphosate Creates A Risk To
Human Health If Used Properly
Even Water Can Be Toxic
If Too Much Is Consumed
In A Short Period Of Time
Dr Strang said although the World Health Organization has identified Glyphosate as a probable human carcinogen under certain conditions [ ?!?! ], Health Canada has ruled that Glyphosate is NOT A HEALTH RISK to humans so long as it is properly applied.
According to Dr Strang ―
To determine the actual risk you have to ask exactly how is the chemical going to be used — when, how, where, and how much — and work all that through in a risk assessment to say what’s the possible human exposure and what are the health risks from that exposure.
All the evidence would say that the way it is proposed to be used in Nova Scotia for forestry application DOES NOT POSE ANY HUMAN HEALTH RISK.
Dr Strang went on to cite a recent New Brunswick study with similar findings.
Dr Strang said it’s about WEIGHING RISKS AND BENEFITS.
In 2011, Glyphosate was one of a number of ingredients whose use was ARBITRARILY PROHIBITED in the Urban Landscape by the Government of Nova Scotia.

Genotoxic Expert Panel Review
September 28th, 2016
The Western Producer
Yet another study is REFUTING THE IDEA THAT GLYPHOSATE CAUSES CANCER.
In a paper published on-line in Critical Reviews in Toxicology, FOUR INDEPENDENT PANELS OF EXPERTS, named the Genotoxic Expert Panel Review, looked at the relevant research on Glyphosate and whether it’s carcinogenic.
The group of 16 scientists, from Canada, the United States, Denmark, Brazil, the United Kingdom, and other countries, DECISIVELY CONCLUDED that …
Glyphosate Is Unlikely To Pose
A Carcinogenic Risk To Humans
The Genotoxic Expert Panel Review BLUNTLY REJECTED the findings of the International Agency for Research on Cancer ( IARC ) panel, which decided in March 2015 that Glyphosate is probably carcinogenic to humans. [ ?!?! ]
According the Exposure Experts of the Genotoxic Expert Panel Review ―
Even when using worst-case assumptions, systemic exposures to applicators, bystanders, and the general public are VERY SMALL …
There is an EXTREMELY LARGE MARGIN OF SAFETY from exposure to Glyphosate via normal uses.
According the Epidemiology Panel of the Genotoxic Expert Panel Review ―
Glyphosate epidemiologic literature DOES NOT INDICATE A CAUSAL RELATIONSHIP between Glyphosate exposure and NHL ( non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma ).
According the Genotoxicity Experts of the Genotoxic Expert Panel Review ―
Extensive reviews of the genotoxicity … all support a conclusion that Glyphosate is INHERENTLY NOT GENOTOXIC.
The Genotoxic Expert Panel Review DISAGREED with the IARC conclusion that there is sufficient evidence that Glyphosate is carcinogenic for lab animals such as mice and rates.
The conclusions of the 16 member Genotoxic Expert Panel Review support the findings of agencies around the world.
Health Canada, the European Food Safety Authority and a joint WHO and United Nations Food and Agriculture panel published similar scientific reviews in 2015 and 2016.
All of the organizations reported that Glyphosate is NOT CARCINOGENIC FOR HUMANS.

Drink A Glass Of Glyphosate
Of course, this will change few opinions among the true believers.
Monsanto-Haters and GMO-Phobes are implacable.
We can already hear their objections ―
If Glyphosate is so safe, why don’t you drink a glass of it ?!?!
Organic farmers use manure to fertilize crops.
Perhaps they should DRINK a glass of that.
BACKGROUND INFORMATION ― ANY DRINK TEST IS A RIDICULOUSLY WORTHLESS STUNT ! ― You could NO more drink a glass of diluted pest control product than you could a glass of water filled with common table salt. Both will upset your stomach, and only an idiot would consider drinking either of them. According to Dr Keith R Solomon : « These materials [ pest control products used in the urban landscape ] are less toxic than table salt. I’m NOT suggesting you use them [ pest control products ] on your fish and chips, but just to put it into some sort of perspective ». Dr Keith Ross Solomon is a Doctorate-Level Expert and World Leading Scientific Expert in the Field of Environmental Biology, Toxicology, and Pesticide Safety. He is also Professor in the Department of Environmental Biology at the University of Guelph, Ontario, as well as Director of the Centre for Toxicology in Guelph, Ontario. http://wp.me/P1jq40-1Lk Pest control products, like 2,4-D and Glyphosate, are NO more dangerous than table salt, and, in fact, 2,4-D tastes like salt water. In the early 1940s, Dr R Milton Carleton was the co-developer of another ingredient that is JUST AS SAFE as Glyphosate, 2,4-D herbicide. Dr Carleton usually carried a flask around with him that contained 2,4-D from which he would drink on request « just to prove it was harmless ». Anyone who knew the distinctive fish smell of 2,4-D knew that Dr Carleton was actually drinking the real stuff. 2,4-D and Roundup are LESS TOXIC THAN Aspirin, baking soda, caffeine, cannabis, nicotine, table salt, and Tylenol. 2,4-D and Roundup are NO MORE TOXIC THAN ethanol ( an edible beverage constituent in beer, wine, and other intoxicating beverages ), mouthwash ( Listerine ), and Vitamin C. Pest control products like 2,4-D and Roundup are scientifically-safe, practically non-toxic, will cause NO harm, WILL NOT cause cancer, and WILL NOT cause irreversible damage if consumed orally. The probable lethal dose for a person ingesting the concentrated form of 2,4-D or Roundup is ONE LITRE, the volume of an entire milk carton. By comparison, drinking SIX LITRES of water, which is considered harmless, can lead to water poisoning or dilutional hyponatremia, which is a potentially fatal disturbance in brain functions. In essence, water is only FIVE TIMES SAFER than 2,4-D or Roundup. Dr Carleton was NOT harmed by drinking 2,4-D ― he lived to the age of 87.
The Dr Carleton story originates from Mr Art C Drysdale …

We were a chemical business that became a biotech and biology business that morphed into a seed business.
I think the main transition as you look forward is the application of data.
It takes about 40 decisions, from right around now until harvest in August or September, the grower takes about 40 decisions to produce a crop.
Some of those decisions are highly technified, and others it’s because of what his mom and dad did or what he hears in the coffee shop or what he read in a magazine.
So we’ve been populating those 40 decisions with data and I think by improving the quality of decisions, you increase the yield.
I think the transition for Monsanto is increasingly in the next 10 years becoming a solutions-driven company, and coalescing the biology, the more accurate application of chemistry and the much smarter use of data.
You know, these big green John Deere combines are streaming data off the field, one yard at a time, and it’s how you use that biological data and apply it back to the field to help growers with better insights, I think that’s going to be the next piece.

Discover What Anti-Pesticide & Enviro-Lunatic Terrorists Are Doing And Saying About Subversively Imposing Their Life-Style Choices Against Our Society.
Read … Reports, Blogs, & Videos, From Force Of Nature, NORAHG, Pesticide Truths, & Uncle Adolph ― The Whole Truth From An Independent Perspective.
Communities and businesses are being HARMED and DESTROYED and RAPED by LUNATIC-TERRORISTS who ARBITRARILY AND RECKLESSLY IMPOSE PROHIBITIONS against pest control products used in the Urban Landscape and by the Agriculture Industry, and who PERPETRATE OTHER ACTS OF ENVIRONMENTAL TERRORISM.
We are living in the 9|11 Era of Anti Pesticide & Environmental Terrorism where at least ONE SUBVERSIVE ACT OF TERRORISM is perpetrated EVERY SINGLE DAY by LUNATIC-TERRORISTS.
A LUNATIC is a person whose actions and manner are marked by extreme recklessness.
The RECKLESS ACTS OF SUBVERSION by these LUNATIC-TERRORISTS has led to the ARBITRARY IMPOSITION of Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION in several jurisdictions throughout North America.
The result was CATASTROPHIC CARNAGE !
Because of LUNATIC-TERRORISTS, provinces like Ontario now have a TRAIL OF ECONOMIC DESTRUCTION WITH HUNDREDS OF SMALL BUSINESSES DESTROYED and THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE OUT OF WORK, a MORE DANGEROUS OUTDOOR ENVIRONMENT, and a BLACK MARKET IN PESTICIDES.
Only TRUE LUNATICS would wish to create a TRAIL OF ECONOMIC DESTRUCTION WITH HUNDREDS OF SMALL BUSINESSES DESTROYED and THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE OUT OF WORK.
Because of LUNATIC-TERRORISTS, we are living in the DARK AGE OF ANTI PESTICIDE TERRORISM where sound science is trumped by FAKE SCIENTISTS, JUNK SCIENCE and UNVERIFIABLE SECRET EVIDENCE through FABRICATION, INNUENDO, and INTERNET RUMOR ― scientific research PROVES that pest control products will CAUSE NO HARM and can be USED SAFELY.
An informed public is better able to protect itself and its communities and businesses from LUNATIC-TERRORISTS who are THE LEAST QUALIFIED TO PROVIDE ANY ADVICE about pest control products or the environment.
NORAHG is the National Organization Responding Against HUJE that seek to harm the Green space and other industries, and the well-being of our communities.
NORAHG morally represents the VAST SILENT MAJORITY of people associated with turf and ornamental plant maintenance who are OPPOSED to LUNATIC-TERRORISTS and their Anti Pesticide PROHIBITIONS, resulting in the CLOSURE or ABANDONMENT of green spaces under the RIDICULOUS PRETEXT CONCOCTED BY LUNATICS of somehow « saving » the environment.
NORAHG is a NATIONAL NON-PROFIT NON-PARTISAN organization that does NOT accept money from corporations or governments or trade associations, and represents NO VESTED INTERESTS WHATSOEVER.
NORAHG is dedicated to reporting PESTICIDE FREE FAILURES, as well as the work of RESPECTED & HIGHLY RATED EXPERTS who promote ENVIRONMENTAL REALISM and PESTICIDE TRUTHS.
NORAHG strikes back against the MYTHS concerning the need for prohibition against pest control products.
NORAHG RESPONDS on behalf of the VAST SILENT MAJORITY of THE PUBLIC THAT DOES NOT WANT PESTICIDE BANS, and SUPPORTS those who work in the Professional Lawn Care Industry, the Golf Industry, and the Agriculture Industry.
RESPECTED & HIGHLY RATED EXPERTS
THE MYTHS ABOUT BANNING PESTICIDES
VAST SILENT MAJORITY
NORAHG is opposed to PESTICIDE FREE jurisdictions where LUNATIC-TERRORISTS have DOOMED CHILDREN to SUFFER INJURIES since Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION inevitably leads to public and residential green spaces that become DANGEROUS AND PEST-INFESTED GARBAGE DUMPS.

NORAHG is concerned that, because of PESTICIDE FREE MAINTENANCE of parks and sports fields, CHILDREN ARE AT HIGHER RISK OF SUFFERING INJURIES with DANGEROUS PLAYING SURFACES CREATED BY #@!!% PESTICIDE BANS.
CHILDREN ARE NOT AT RISK
NORAHG pledges to deliver comprehensive reports that are worthy of peoples’ time and of peoples’ concern, reports that might ordinarily never have breached the parapet.
NORAHG was the brainchild of William H Gathercole and his colleagues in 1991. Mr Gathercole is now retired, although his name continues to appear as founder.
Force Of Nature Reports & Blogs were launched by NORAHG for CONTINUOUS transmission on the Internet on January 1st, 2009 ― however, the VERY FIRST Stand-Alone Force Of Nature Report was issued on September 19th, 2008.
On March 15th, 2010, Uncle Adolph independently launched The Pesticide Truths, an easy-to-use Web-Site that collects relevant reports of information right-off-the-press.
Primus inter pares, first among equals, describes Pesticide Truths, Uncle Adolph, and Force Of Nature ― they are formally equal to each other and are all accorded equal respect.
The Reports & Blogs from Pesticide Truths, Uncle Adolph, and Force Of Nature, in some ways, are like Google for everything concerning the SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES of Anti-Pesticide and Enviro-Lunatic Terrorists.
Many of these Reports & Blogs provide a sequence of historical events WITH COMMENTARY, the neutrality of which might be disputed.
This is what we do. Don’t thank us. It’s a public service. And we are glad to do it.
