A word of caution here from the author of this post featuring an article by a NZ MD. It is cautioning pregnant mothers, and in particular at this point in time, pregnant mothers who live in or near Luggate in NZ’s South Island. A while back we published information regarding two other medical professionals (midwives) warning pregnant mothers to leave town before a 1080 aerial drop, confirmed by the research of another NZ MD. (See that information at the end of the article).

LUGGATE AERIAL 1080 DROP – PLUS “POISONS AND PREGNANCY” by Dr. C. Baycroft
I do not like the role of fearmonger, but I’d rather sound a word of caution than say nothing. What I do have to say to you is that, after five solid years of studying this whole 1080 poison mess, I know a lot more now than when I started. Therefore, one of the things I can say to you presently, with absolute certainty, is that if I was a pregnant woman, or planning for a family, I would be getting well away from Luggate for at least two weeks after the drop, and longer if I could manage it.
Luggate is less than 1 km from the 1080 drop zone and the prevailing winter katabatic winds will be coming over the town with their load of toxic dust. We all have different susceptibilities to poison – some hardy souls seem able to tolerate all manner of abuse. But what will happen to newly forming life is another matter entirely.
I understand there are at least six pregnant women in Luggate at the moment, and with a population of 324 ( according to current statistics ) quite probably more.
Here is an important piece of information from Dr. Baycroft

“POISONS AND PREGNANCY”
by Dr, Charles Baycroft
The development of a human child is an extremely complicated and amazing sequence of events by which one cell becomes a fully formed human being.
This is achieved by rapid cell divisions and changes in the cells to create all the different tissues of the body and have them in the right place at the right time.
People have absolutely no appreciation of how miraculous this is and how it works so perfectly most of the time.
Sometimes it does not work properly.
Perhaps the most critical period is shortly after conception and for the 1 st 3 months. If the sequence of changes is not perfectly coordinated the foetus will be abnormal. If those problems occur in the 1 st 4 to 8 weeks the pregnancy will often terminate naturally. One should be pleased because what was developing would not be anything like a normal baby. Less serious impairments of the process result in babies with congenital abnormalities.
It is accepted beyond all doubt that exposure to any toxic substance after conception (even if pregnancy has not been confirmed) is likely to harm foetal development. The more toxic the substance the worse the harm will be. Look at the manufacturer’s warnings on all medications and other chemical products and you will find the warning.
THIS MUST BE AVOIDED DURING PREGNANCY AND EXPECIALLY DURING THE 1 ST 3 MONTHS OF PREGNANCY. Have you ever seen a product with THIS IS PERFECTLY SAFE TO USE DURING THE 1 ST 3 MONTHS OF PREGANCY? I do not think you will see that.
Some medications have been considered to be relatively safe to use during pregnancy and later found to be extremely dangerous. Thalidomide was a good example.
If someone says that a toxic chemical, POISON, has NOT BEEN PROVEN to cause birth defects or abortions that Means NO STUDIES HAVE BEEN DONE! This is presented by dishonest people as a suggestion that POISONS WILL NOT HARM A DEVELOPING BABY. These people are abusing science to tell lies. The research has not and will never be done because we already know that exposure to poisons will interfere with the development of the baby and cause abortions or birth defects.
Are you pregnant?
Any sexually active woman could be pregnant at any time unless proven otherwise. Contraception does fail.
The New Zealand government is knowingly and intentionally polluting our environment with 1080 and other lethal chemical weapons and exposing pregnant women to the associated
dangers. If you think that you have control over your body and the baby developing within your womb you are mistaken.
When you are told that this dangerous exposure will not cause abortions and birth defects, they are saying: “It probably will but the victims will not be able to prove it!”
If you are a sexually active woman, you are either pregnant or about to become pregnant unless proven otherwise.
If you are exposed to any amounts of toxic chemical substances (especially ones labelled as poisons) this will probably harm you and your developing baby because there is no evidence or proof that it will not.
The safe amount of toxic chemical poison, that one can risk exposure to in pregnancy, is ZERO. If you are in any doubt of this, please discuss it with your chosen Medical Professional and seek advice based on clinical trials of toxic chemical poisons in pregnancy.

The other article mentioned earlier, included information from another MD the late Dr Peter Scanlon who also sounded this warning for pregnant mothers. I will quote what he said (including a link to the article):
“Where are the cancer causing or carcinogenicity studies? … there aren’t any;
Where are the reproductive studies, particularly focusing on female eggs? … there aren’t any;
Where are the developmental studies, early exposure to brain, immune system? … there aren’t any;
Where are the long term chronic exposure studies looking at mitochondrial DNA content and mutation rates? there aren’t any.
There’s a lot of doubts about this substance, it’s dangerous.”
You can read that article at this link.
If you are new to the 1080 poisoning program, here is a good article to start with …
WHY ARE PEOPLE SO CONCERNED ABOUT 1080?
A must watch also is Poisoning Paradise, the doco made by the GrafBoys (banned from screening on NZ TV, yet a 4x international award winner). Their website is tv-wild.com. Their doco is a very comprehensive overview with the independent science to illustrate the question marks that remain over the use of this poison. There are links also on our 1080 resources page to most of the groups, pages, sites etc that will provide you with further information.
Check out the 1080 pages at the main menu, particularly the sub tab, ‘suspected 1080 poisoning cases’. Finally, remember what the retired MD Charles Baycroft said recently …‘if you die from 1080 poisoning, nobody will know because the Ministry of Health is bullying NZ Doctors into not testing for 1080′.
