EU deregulation of the agrochemical industry?

Post by kenneal - lagger »

If you want to know how the agrochemicals industry is trying to remove regulation on food safety read this Ecologist article. Perhaps all agrochemicals should be tested on agrochemical industry employees, senior execs first, under independent supervision of course, to see if they are as safe as the industry says. If they are as safe as the industry says they shouldn't object to that, should they?

Seems all the industries wanting to poison us for profit have teamed up of at least are using the same tactics and PR assets. What a surprise!!

Another reason (as if another were needed) to always buy (and grow) organic.

Most people profess they don't want -cides in their food - but then don't do anything about it.
