Why this is important

New Zealand has one of the highest breast cancer rates in the world, and studies link pesticides to cancer. There are about 100 highly hazardous pesticides (HHPs) still in use in NZ, as defined by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) and World Health Organisation. In 2006, the FAO Council recommended that all HHPs be phased out globally. We call on the New Zealand government to respect the basic human rights to health and ban all HHPs!
