Most chemical pesticides on the market today come from nerve gas research developed duringWorld War II. The intention is poisoning the nervous system of pests at levels low enough thathumans are not affected. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is the governing body todetermine what application levels of pesticide chemicals are 'safe'.The EPA and the costs for research and testing are funded by the large chemical companieswhose products they want the EPA to register. To register a pesticide, the EPA determines 'safe'application levels (for a 180 pound male) and then the public has the misguided notion thatproducts are safe since they are 'registered'. However, the EPA only registers substances that areknown toxins, poisons, or carcinogens. So how can poisons, toxins and carcinogens ever becategorized as 'safe'?Cumulative effects of chemical pesticides are well documented to be contributing factors inmany health issues such as ADHD, Infertility, Autism, Cancer, etc. The obvious lesson issynthetic toxic chemicals are just that - TOXIC!
