Our Children are Born Pre-polluted – hear how pesticides are killing us all – Dr Meriel Watts

Farmers, local councils, schools, people in general slather everything in glyphosate (found in Roundup & most other household herbicides). That’s NZ’s no. 1 choice for keeping everything neat & tidy meanwhile, their health is a silent ticking cancer timebomb. Generally folk won’t read the research, they don’t want to know. They’ve been told it’s safe, end of story. (See our Glyphosate pages on that one at the menu). There are 80-100,000 chemicals in our environment says Dr Watts many (most) of which have never been tested adequately for safety around humans let alone the rest of the ecosystem.  This is thorough (yet shocking) info. I phoned Forest & Bird one day to alert them that one of their small reserves was being literally hosed with glyphosate, assuming they were into protecting birds & forests. They didn’t even know what it was! The image above was captured in NZ.  Educate yourself & speak up against its use.

Real environmentalism is about keeping our air, food and water clean. Our planet is now awash with pesticides and we’re all getting sick because of it, regardless of how you feel about climate change or deforestation, pesticide contamination is a far greater danger and yet it is ignored by mainstream environmentalists. Why? I filmed and edited this presentation purely out of my personal admiration for Meriel Watts and her tireless efforts to bring the explosive yet little known truth about pesticide contamination to the people.

What the pesticide industry’s been hiding from you – DIOXINS in diapers among other things: The Poison Papers expose decades of collusion between industry and regulators

For example, a secret high-level dioxins working group at the EPA acknowledged that dioxins are extraordinarily poisonous chemicals – yet the agency suppressed the fact that dioxins were found in everyday products such as diapers and coffee filters. And, the EPA suppressed its own research that found high levels of dioxin in environmental samples and human breast milk following routine use of 2,4-D and 2,4,5-T (Agent Orange) by the federal Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management.

(NaturalHealth365) A massive cache of documents and correspondence between regulatory agencies and the chemical industry has now seen the light of day – and it exposes a stunning pattern of collusion and deceit. Over 200,000 documents – including study summaries, internal secret memos, meeting minutes and sworn testimonies – attest to the fact that both industry and regulators were aware of the extreme toxicity of many chemical products, and conspired to hide this information from the public.

The explosive papers became news on July 26, when the online publication The Intercept published an interview with author and archivist Carol Van Strum. To learn more about the incredible pattern of corruption and collusion, read on.

Undeniable evidence: Federal agencies and chemical manufacturers were “in bed” together

Naturally, the most obvious question is, ‘who are the major players in the Poison Papers?’ The answer reveals many people at the highest levels of government regulation and corporate industry.

Federal regulatory agency sources implicated in the scandal include the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the United States Department of Agriculture Forest Service, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the U.S. Department of Defense. The chemical manufacturers include Dow, Monsanto, DuPont and Union Carbide.

In addition, the toxic chemicals referenced in the documents include 2,4-D, Dicamba, permethrin, atrazine and Agent Orange – all of which continue to be manufactured and sold. In fact, it’s “business as usual” for 2,4-D, which has just been authorized by the EPA for use on Dow’s new GMO 2,4-D-tolerant soybeans – in spite of the fact that it is contaminated with dioxins.

To be clear, the Poison Papers are not just testament to deception and collusion that occurred in the past – they also reflect betrayals of the public that are ongoing to this day.

Cup of chemicals anybody? to all the lovers of Earl Grey tea – the REAL bergamot content is ‘very small’ & the rest is chemical & natural flavouring

For years I’ve enjoyed Earl Grey tea. In fact it was the first non-mainstream tea I ever took a liking to, and that’s going back forty odd years now. A dear friend introduced me to it and I’ve bought it ever since.  Since it has always been very expensive compared to your common breakfast teas, almost double the price, it was reserved to enjoy only on the odd occasion. For a few years I didn’t drink it all because my very tight budget just didn’t allow it. The expense I believe comes from the addition of subtly flavoured bergamot, an oil extract from the bergamot orange. “Citrus bergamia, the bergamot orange (pronounced /ˈbɜːrɡəˌmɒt/), is a fragrant citrus fruit the size of an orange, with a green color similar to a lime.” (Wikipedia)

Citrus_bergamia_-_Köhler–s_Medizinal-Pflanzen-184.jpg
Bergamot Orange [wikipedia]
So a year or two back I began buying it again and noticed it wasn’t as strong. It took two bags to taste the bergamot. Or making a smaller cup. This led me to start reading the fine print. Yes it was labeled ‘light strength’. I contacted the Twinings Facebook page and asked what was up with the ‘light’? The answer was a little vague and I couldn’t really figure out what it meant. I did complain about the fact you could hardly taste the bergamot. Then recently I noticed a package change and the bags were sealed in a foil bag. The bergamot flavour was stronger and on examining the new pack it said 5% bergamot flavouring whereas the old packet said 3.5%. Yay, I said to myself. They’ve strengthened it. Then I began to ponder. ‘Flavouring’? Surely not? So I contacted the Facebook page again and asked is the flavouring real bergamot or imitation? I was instructed in their reply to contact Twinings using the email ad supplied. My first red flag. If it was real bergamot they would surely be proud to tell me that on Facebook for all the public to see. This was the reply I got:

In our Twinings tea bag Earl Grey products we use a combination of a granular bergamot flavouring, plus a liquid flavouring to give a strong aroma. The exact compositions of flavourings are the flavour houses’ proprietary information. However, the flavourings in Earl Grey include a small amount of bergamot extract and other natural flavouring chemicals and synthetically produced flavour materials.

So, I have replied (a week ago now) to ask what percentage of the flavouring is real bergamot? No answer yet although I suspect that will also be “the flavour houses’ proprietary information”. I will keep you posted on that one. My next email will question the cost compared to the real.

black-tea-431849_1280
A small amount of bergamot extract & other natural flavouring chemicals & synthetically produced flavouring materials

I figure if they are using artificial chemical flavouring then they ought not to be charging the very high price they do. I always paid more knowing that of course bergamot will be expensive and if I wanted that flavour it was worth the price. So there you go, this is what bloody corporations do (and if you read my posts you will know I don’t generally swear but on this occasion I am. I’m kind of gutted really). They’ve cut the cost of production (and no, chemicals won’t be dearer than real bergamot otherwise they wouldn’t be going to the trouble of sourcing them) and pocketed the difference they made (from we customers). We’ve learned to identify MSG by its various other abbreviated names, however in this instance, with the artificially tweaked bergamot, we have no idea what we are drinking chemical wise, plus it is just not the real deal.

So … I don’t like the fact that I’ve been drinking bergamot flavoured chemicals, especially after recently reading of the great health benefits of Earl Grey which would only be

Cup of Earl Grey Chemicals anybody?

present in real bergamot, (relaxing and sleep inducing were two of them) and I don’t like the fact I’ve been ripped off. If I didn’t love Earl Grey so much I’d stop drinking it. Although that may still be on the tables. I’m just weighing it all up at the moment.  I’m asking myself also, what other products have chemical flavouring rather than the real thing? It surely proves we must read the fine print. Please do watch ‘The Corporation’ movie. You’ll understand why and how corporations can subtly mislead us.

How the UK secretly sprayed the public with carcinogenic chemicals between 1953 & 1964

If you think that your government wouldn’t do this to you, think again. This info was broadcast by BBC but is no longer in their archives. It is clear evidence your government would do this and you likely thought it belongs in that handy ‘conspiracy’ category. There’ve been a lot of events gone into the ‘conspiracy’ basket of late … or is that the ‘too hard’ basket? OI requests obtained this information that sections of UK’s population were sprayed with zinc cadmium sulphide without testing the toxicity of the substance, and without the public’s knowledge. (This took place from Porton Down, “a military science park. It is situated slightly northeast of Porton near Salisbury, in Wiltshire, England…On maps, the land surrounding the complex is identified as a “Danger Area”.)[1] In light of this, don’t disregard the fact that we are all still being sprayed with unknown (& known) chemicals, even in ‘clean green’ Enzed. All officially denied of course. See our Geoengineering pages.

This is a shortened version of the BBC Inside out documentary series that was first broadcast on 6th November 2006. Its interesting to note that this broadcast can no longer by found in the BBC archives, which I think is actually a breach of their own charter.

Between 1953 and 1964 top secret trials were carried out using a chemical concoction of zinc cadmium sulphide to simulate how a cloud would disperse biological agents. The unsuspecting population in the East of England was sprayed covertly with the poisonous compound.

High levels of aluminum in 80 percent of people tested for toxicity

This is in our rain water Kiwis. We’re not exempt. Check that here. And some of  the other sources here.  Google how to detox yourself from this hideous substance that accumulates in your brain (as well as other parts of your body) found typically in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients. Be aware & protect yourself. Get rid of those items like aluminum cookware among other things. The sources are many.
EnvirowatchRangitikei

from NaturalHealth365.com

(NaturalHealth365) Aluminum, which performs no identifiable function in the human body, is not a nutrient. Yet, most of us consume this neurotoxic substance – or inhale its fumes, or apply it to our skin – on a daily basis.

According to Analytical Research Labs, a whopping 80 percent of people tested have excessively high aluminum levels – a disturbing statistic, given that metal toxicities are associated with a wide range of chronic disease conditions.

We are living in the “age of aluminum”

Aluminum – the third most prevalent element on the planet – already exists naturally, in the environment – but, just to be clear – has ZERO benefit inside the human body.  This cheaply-produced metal has literally dozens of commercial uses – leading concerned natural health experts and environmentalists to dub the present day the “age of aluminum.”

Sadly, aluminum is used in cookware, soda cans and packaging for processed foods – not to mention: aluminum foil.  An ingredient in many over-the-counter antacids such as Rolaids, aluminum is also found in various cosmetics and hygiene products, particularly antiperspirants.

Disturbingly, exposure to aluminum begins almost immediately after birth – aluminum is used as an adjuvant in vaccines given to newborns.  In fact, the number of aluminum-containing vaccines children receive has quadrupled over the past 40 years, with children typically receiving 17 aluminum-spiked injections in the first 18 months of life.

Finally, aluminum is used liberally in the foods we eat, including kitchen staples such as cocoa, salt, flour and baking powder. Aluminum is even found in municipal tap water – which is a very good reason why we should purify our drinking water as a top health priority.

Recently our Enzed govt/corporation announced it would be assisting our Councils financially ($11 mill) with the delivery costs of fluoride to our drinking water. Having long ago cut their subsidy for community housing.  Something to think about.

Wellington stream a brown, bubbly industrial dump that is killing the eels

More sustainable development from our LG folks. I challenge you to examine LG websites (Councils, Regional Council, Horizons) – they’re replete with a ton of rhetoric about sustainable this and sustainable that … all of which they pay mere lip service to. Note the comment from them in the article when whose responsibility it is is being followed up:

“T&T Landfills manager Sophie Gray said all information was available on the council’s website. When asked when the drainage problems would be fixed, she said it was a matter between “me and the council” before hanging up.”

In my opinion placed there to lull you into thinking all this toxic pollution is not their fault.  One gets the impression these DCs are fully in bed with the respective industries. Examine also though some of the events that transpire in the various other regions where the life in the waterways is dying off. Recently we had a huge die off of pipi and tuatua at Waitarere Beach. We hear a flurry in the news of ‘yes we are testing’ etc etc etc, and unless you pester them you’ll likely hear no more of it. Or when you do it is some curious thing to blame like I read recently, ‘pine pesticide’. Then they blame floods or high temps. All ‘natural’ phenomena of course so industrial pollution can’t be blamed. But here in this video, the stream is said to stink of chemicals, to which the likely reply will be the usual mantra of ‘it can’t be proven’. Not without extensive and expensive testing at least. Which predictably nobody will feel responsible enough to stump up with the costs for. Industries/corporations manage to let themselves off the hook in terms of responsibility for clean up. They have succeeded in reframing all of that by calling the damages externalities and making the public pay. Really the must watch as I always recommend is, ‘The Corporation’ doco. The profits of corporations are generally so large they pay for any fines out of their lunch money. If they get any fines that is. Largely they create carnage then move on leaving the locals to suck it up … get poisoned … whatever. They are rarely made to pay. So here we have dying eels as the canary in the coal mine. How long will it be before there is nothing left? We can’t swim in these streams and rivers any more, many more we can’t even wade in they’re so toxic. So why would we be expecting eels to survive in them? The regional authorities need to step up & enforce their consents properly instead of turning the proverbial blind eye.

Forget clean and green – this Wellington stream is brown, bubbly and litter-strewn

As Jane Poata walks beside Wellington’s Owhiro Stream, the toxic stench rekindles childhood memories of holidaying beside New Zealand’s most-contaminated site.

It is a metallic smell she described as ammonia and lime, rising from the brown and bubbly stream, a tributary of which passes through T&T Landfills before running behind a primary school and homes then into Taputeranga Marine Reserve off the capital’s south coast.

Greater Wellington Regional Council has confirmed the contamination came from the T&T Landfills, which was in the process of diverting the tributary to Owhiro Stream and creating a filtering wetland so it no longer picked up debris and contaminants when flood water rushed through.

* Criticism at lack of action over rising contamination in Wellington’s Owhiro Stream
* Wellington stream brown, swollen and frothy
* The new ‘swimmable’ fresh water target: Nick Smith defends his plan
*Editorial: We must clean up our waterways to prove we are clean and green

“Any contaminant can be toxic and harmful to the stream ecology and people coming into contact, but it depends on the levels we find.”

The landfill was fined following a similar incident in November. Cross said further fines had not been ruled out but the council was more focused now on fixing the problem.

T&T Landfills manager Sophie Gray said all information was available on the council’s website. When asked when the drainage problems would be fixed, she said it was a matter between “me and the council” before hanging up.

Florida Officials Are Now Seeding Poisonous Chemicals In the Wind

While Zika mayhem has died down ever since it was a big fat flop at the Olympics, that doesn’t mean that health officials are finished pushing the fears. Officials in Florida are putting out more enhanced efforts to “fight mosquitoes” as a precaution to Zika.

Kiwi are dying in large numbers at Mt Bruce OIA reveals & evidence points to pesticides including 1080 in spite of claims to the contrary

More disturbing discoveries on the supposed effectiveness of the pest eradication programs our once clean green paradise has to offer … from the GrafBoys.

“Mt Bruce’s Pukaha claims great success in the recovery of re-introduced bird species like kiwi – but the dark truth is, that kiwi are dying in large numbers, and the decline is directly pointing to pesticides like the aerially spread 1080 poison, or their failure to kill targeted species.”

Pukaha – Mt Bruce is a 942 hectare, un-fenced wildlife project situated in the Wairarapa Region of the North Island of New Zealand.

It claims great success in the recovery of re-introduced bird species like kiwi – but the dark truth is, that kiwi are dying in large numbers, and the decline is directly pointing to pesticides like the aerially spread 1080 poison, or their failure to kill targeted species.

This clip investigates the claims and catastrophes that are Mt Bruce …

The many health issues that can arise from our exposure to the 3,000+ often untested fragrance ingredients including petrochemicals

This first hand report is from a very interesting blog by a mother who fell ill from exposure to the many fragrances found in everyday products that we are frequently not aware of. Learn about her story.

She “developed Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, Environmental Sensitivities (MCS/ES), Fibromyalgia, and eventually a side of Electromagnetic HyperSensitivity to wireless technologies (EHS or  otherwise included in ES), tossed in just to make things more interesting (as the old Chinese curse goes). Adult onset, intermittent relapsing autism and MS  have also made appearances, along with toxic brain injury symptoms caused by gas leaks and a series of other unavoidable exposures.” lindasepp.wordpress.com

Fragrance Ingredients

“Below is a list of 3090 materials that were reported to be used in fragrance compounds by IFRA members in a 2008 voluntary survey. IFRA members are responsible for possibly 90% of the world’s fragrance production. The list was updated in 2011 and they say they will occasionally update it again with info from future surveys.

There could be ingredients used in fragrance manufacture that are not on this list.

perfume-1743223_1280

Many of the fragrance ingredients are made from petrochemicals. Yes, from petroleum. Great stuff to breathe in (especially for children and pets) and absorb through our skin.

I hope to be able to get a list of the 4000 – 7000 chemicals that (according to the CDC) are in cigarette smoke, and then find a way to compare the two.

Note that health effects are not known for a significant portion of the chemicals in production and use today. Testing has simply not been done. When substances do show health harm, it is extremely difficult to get them off the market.

That said, there are more than a few substances listed below that are known to cause  serious health harm.

As always it’s so important to be awake and aware and be prepared to read extensively. The independent research is often shuffled away and needs to be uncovered. Industry frequently conceals it or adds it in very fine print. Most of us (as I used to) don’t read beyond the large label. Flip over any product though and examine the list of those unpronounceable chemicals there and then record and research them on the many ID sites available for these, along with the information as to whether they’ve been tested or not. EWG is an excellent site to do this. There are others. Minimizing our exposure to these unhealthy additives can only be healthy. There are safer natural alternatives. You may think your exposure is minimal however remember the chemicals soak straight through your skin into your bloodstream and accumulate. The damage is long term and cumulative. A cancer tumor can take up to 15 years to develop. An excellent book to read is ‘The Politics of Cancer’ by  Samuel Epstein, a Medical Doctor who warned back in the ’70s of the chemicals in our environment that are leading to cancer.
