In Huddersfield where I grew up, there is a huge global Swiss Agrochemical company called Syngenta. I can remember during the 80s it was called ICI. For a long time, it denied manufacturing a deadly chemical called Paraquat. Paraquat is extremely toxic to human health.
Paraquat is an Herbicide (plant killer). It’s used to kill weeds and also used by industrial agriculture around the world. Herbicides are just one of the dirty dozen or 12 types of pesticide products that enter our water and food supply.
Evidence of exposure to Pesticide residues in foods like fruits and vegetables and water is vast. Knowledge of long term levels of pesticide residue damage, to human, animal, insect and aquatic life, is also well studied.
So why is it still being used? Why are they legal? Does this make sense to you all?
If I told you I was going to grow your food with poison. That this toxin also destroys the natural biology of the land as well as the nutrients we need for a healthy diet. You would tell me where to shove it.
Would it surprise you to know that your kids are exposed to pesticides. While, drinking juices or tap water, eating most foods and even bathing or swimming. You may also be drinking herbicides. When you’re having a beer, wine or cider, in fact it could be any one of the dirty dozen.
Does this sound like something straight out of Nazi Germany?
You should be alarmed. Unsafe level amounts of pesticides are a leading cause of illness and disease. Long term pesticide health effects are playing out right before our eyes. Neurological problems, respiratory diseases, nervous system damage, cancers, endocrine disruptions, heart conditions even mental illnesses the list is endless.
Some of these are Ex Biological Warfare weapons. That have been transformed into everyday items bought from garden centers and supermarkets to innocently spray at home. Contaminating our families and pets in the process.
