Canada has some of the highest levels of synthetic chemical ‘icides worldwide. MUCH higher than China. Canada also hold the title for gut disease. Health Canada seems to blindly follow the US. and approves poison based on 90 day patent holder studies.
24D is another doozy approved in our food. 24D is the main ingredient in Agent Orange. 2 in 3 Canadians now suffer from gut disorders.
How many suffer due to “policy”.
– 2000 Canadian govt promised to ban Chlorpyrifos
– 2009 “… Twenty-nine insecticides containing Chlorpyrifos are registered for use in Canada on peaches, nectarines, and strawberries, a wide variety of vegetables, and grains including barley, wheat, oats, canola, and flax. Aerial spraying is currently allowed.
Meanwhile, breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in Canada. Links between breast cancer, birth defects, and pesticides continue to emerge from scientific research. A recent study in Manitoba (Magoon, 2006) examined thousands of hospital records and showed that areas with higher incidence of birth defects and other health problems also had a higher level of pesticide use…”
– 2016 Govt audit found banned pesticides left on the market for 11 years in Canada:
– 24D is the main ingredient in Agant Orange. Is the govt too scared of being sued by these poison peddlers?
Govt says 24D is safe based on patent holder 90 day studies, “safe” for our food, but not for you lawn. 😦
