PESTICIDES TO STAY IN NZ BABY FOOD – OURS HAS 533% MORE THAN THE EU DOES!

If you think a few pesticides won’t matter in the bigger scheme of things think again. Get hold of Dr Samuel Epstein’s book written in the ’70s called ‘The Politics of Cancer’ and see what he was saying all those decades ago. Went unnoticed of course, or should we say was swept under the carpet. Interesting also what one hears anecdotally on topic. I have had three interesting over the counter convos with people on this. Apparently, I was told this by a relative of someone who grows oranges for export… apparently they spray the ground  around the fruit trees with that carcinogen called glyphosate, found in Roundup that Kiwis love to slather everywhere. (See our Glyphosate pages for more info on that). So, washing the skins isn’t really doing a thing for us is it? Then the other convo I had concerned market gardeners. The first, from a person who was new to organics said she’d met an Asian family who grew for the Kiwi market … who applied all the presumably required pesticides to the ‘for sale’ crops, and grew their supply for their own use, pesticide free. The last convo I had the other day, over the counter, was a woman who’d asked me do the organic blueberries taste any better than non. I told her no they tasted the same & gave her the short version of why I prefer not to eat the sprayed ones. She then related to me the horror a relative of hers felt at seeing a friend in market gardening, applying handfuls of brightly coloured chemical mixtures into the hole prior to planting the silver beet plant on top. I know, when standing in the supermarket & comparing the price of non organic to organic it’s really hard on a constrained budget to choose the organic, often twice the price. But in the very long term all those chemicals quietly accumulate in your body, a silent time bomb that won’t likely show itself until you’re in middle age or later even. I overheard another convo recently, in an op shop actually, three people discussing a loved one undergoing chemo (see our cancer pages on that or look it up under categories – a near death sentence in reality) … they were amazed that just about everyone they talked to knew someone with the big C. The supermarket lady had actually joined those dots and confided that she believed it probably was the cause of the high cancer rate these days (one in three). Of course I agreed with her. It’s not really rocket science when you read the non industry funded research.

I find this particularly shocking. 533% MORE! What could our authorities be thinking? Do their babies eat this poison? Best to prepare your own organic vegetables Kiwis. At least then you know what your baby is eating. Some of those pesticides are known carcinogens and remember the poison is cumulative.  EnvirowatchRangitikei

“New Zealand baby food had 533% more pesticide residues than the EU”

PESTICIDES TO STAY IN BABY FOOD

Pesticides are to stay in baby food, in spite of a petition presented to parliament. The Primary Production Committee decided today not to act on the Safe Food Campaign petition asking for zero tolerance for pesticide residues in baby food, even though such directives are currently in place in the European Union.

The Committee acknowledged the public interest to New Zealanders and the concern felt about toxins in food, especially…

    1. Independence is not on their agenda as they steer us towards global governance. That’s the end game as I’m sure you well know RangiMarie. They do all need to be charged & convicted of many crimes, I agree, particularly the poisoning of our food chain.

      1. Pam — Thank you for all that you post . . . I’m in California, and I appreciate the heads up you give as to what’s happening. I hate the use of 1080, but better to know it’s happening than staying ignorant, like in regards to so much of what’s going on!

      2. California! Thanks DawnSeeker and you’re so welcome. You’re right, so much is going on and we here are not exempt obviously. We were once, cut off from everywhere, not so now. You are so right, so much going on, speeding up. Hard not to look at it all and say there’s no agenda going on.
