Paradox Of Searching For A Cancer Cure - Why Eat Organic?

Christopher Maingot's excellent letter below, gives us a real good reason on why it is essential to buy organic food; and for strengthening regulations instead of relaxing them for industry profits....

"Ask yourself why organic farmers have more sperm and less cancer, depression, suicide, birth-injured or brain-damaged children than those who use pesticides. A total of 76 US baby foods were checked and found to contain 16 different pesticides. It is estimated that 55% of all fruits and 29% of all vegetables contain toxic chemicals, and half of these can cause cancer. Could this be related to the 25% increase in brain cancer in children in the past 25 to 50 years? Twenty million children under five years of age eat an average of eight types of pesticides a day. Ninety percent of the children from six months to five years eat an average of 13 chemicals that damage the nervous system each day. About 108 pesticide types were found on 22 different fruits and vegetables, and as many as 10 to 37 different types can be found on a single apple."

..."the universally known fact is that Canadian foods in particular are perceived to be toxic by other nations. Our foods are contaminated by neurotoxic gender-bender carcinogenic antibiotics, hormones, rendered slaughterhouse waste residues, genetically engineered plants, and pesticides - all unacceptable to the EU and other countries to the point of their readiness to defy the WTO court on these matters."...

Extracted from: Helke's Questions to Tony Clement July 08.

Imazalil is very toxic to aquatic organisms and the World Health Organization ranks these products as moderately hazardous. The EPA's classifications of carcinogenicity have changed three times over the last 15 years."

Oh golly I wonder why? These changes are the raison d'être for the so called new regulatory modernizing efforts such as Bills C-51 and C-52.

"...Health Canada says the Food & Drugs Act must be "modernized" because it has a narrow focus on safety. The proposed new legislation will replace the safety focus with a focus on risk benefits. The "health" regulatory agency will promote genetically modified and 'novel' food, gene therapies, bio-pharmaceuticals, reproductive technology, transplants of animal organs to humans, cloning, and life patenting. No evidence of safety will be required.

The unstated goal of the proposal is to bring health protection legislation in line with the government of Canada's economic policy. In effect, economic values have primacy over health and environmental safety. A new 'Canada Health Protection Act' would:

1. Shift from health protection ('duty of care') to risk management;
2. Prevent the application of the Precautionary Principle where its needed most;
3. Shift the burden of proof (products are presumed safe - harm has to be proven);
4. 'Manage' the damage (irreversible harm and uncontrollable hazards);
5. Avoid liability for regulatory negligence;
6. Allow direct-to-consumer drug advertising.

The government and industry elites have made their choice: economic growth and corporate profits are to trump the protection of citizens' health. The evidence indicates that the federal health and safety regulatory agencies have been captured by industry. These agencies and are now rigged to deceive the public. It's time for the people of Canada to take back these agencies. Canadians don't want their health protection weakened and they don't want to be lied to.

Canada's strategy is 'it is better that 10 hazardous products be approved to the detriment of human and environmental health than that one safe product be erroneously restricted'. This helps explain why Canadian health and safety regulatory programs are open and transparent to industry but closed and secret to the public. The Royal Society of Canada's Expert Panel on GM food said it is better to err on the side of human and environmental safety than to err on the side of the risk.

The future of health protection is too important to be left in the hands of "experts". Science cannot provide definitive answers about what is dangerous or what risks society should take. Strong public involvement in the 'politics of risk' is needed to save lives, protect public health, the health of future generations, the sustainability of medicare, as well as the health of democracy in Canada. Don't leave it to skillful corporate lobbyists in Ottawa to determine what risks are acceptable". If we continue to let industry set the safety standards, there will literally be no limit to what they will put into our blood stream or have us swallow.

Jane Jacobs has wise advice that can serve us well in the fight to defend our safety rights: "Fight what is wrong. Get as many people as possible to understand. Have as good a time doing the fighting as you can.""...

"Paradoxically, the pharmaceutical organizations target our humane compassions, requiring our hard-earned monies, by means of donations and hospital lotteries to fund their research in the attempt to find the ever elusive cures for their manufactured cancers."

All the while Suppressing Cancer Treatments...

The paradox of searching for a cancer cure

Wednesday, September 05, 2007 - 01:00

Letters to the Editor - It's highly recommended by health experts that we should consume five servings of fruits and vegetables daily for better health. And most of us will follow this advice to reduce the possibility of being plagued by dreaded cancers.

Our fruits and vegetables, however, are treated with pesticides and fungicides, such as Imazalil and Thiabendazole (brand name Mintezol), also intended for the treatment of multi-type parasites in humans (worms). Some of the listed side-effects for Mintezol, a prescribed pharmaceutical, are anorexia, nausea, vomiting, parenchymal liver damage, dizziness, drowsiness, headache, numbness, hyperirritability, convulsions, collapse, confusion and depression.

Imazalil and Thiabendazole have been classified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as "likely" to cause cancer.

Imazalil is very toxic to aquatic organisms and the World Health Organization ranks these products as moderately hazardous. The EPA's classifications of carcinogenicity have changed three times over the last 15 years.

These chemically designed and manufactured products will cause loss of appetite, diarrhea, seizures, mental/mood changes and yellowing of the skin or eyes.

Test animals have experienced symptoms including goose flesh (or goose bumps) due to the excitation of hair follicles, muscle unco-ordination, reduced arterial tension, tremors and vomiting. Contact dermatitis has been noted in some cases in sensitive individuals.

These products are made and sold by the same pharmaceutical research laboratories still searching for cancer cures.

Paradoxically, the pharmaceutical organizations target our humane compassions, requiring our hard-earned monies, by means of donations and hospital lotteries to fund their research in the attempt to find the ever elusive cures for their manufactured cancers.
