  •  We don't require the chemical companies (0+ / 0-)

    to prove that these chemicals will not cause significant harm.

    Testing is a joke. Only after injury and illness is caused, or other environmental damage, and only after law suits and public comment periods, and massively expensive ad wars, is anything even remotely addressed about the harm to people, or the environment. And even then that is no guarantee.

    Case in point: The Science is out there that irrefutably proves that CCD is caused by NeoNicotinoids because in sublethal doses it suppresses the immune system of bees, when it doesn't kill them outright.

    Meanwhile, didley squat happens.

    The Science is out there that irrefutably proves that endocrine disruptors like atrazine cause problems and deformaties and intersex characteristics in our amphibians, which are globally in decline. Nothing happens.

    That Organophosphates like Malathion exposure causes conditions like Parkinsons in Humans-----Nothing happens.

    And it goes on and on and on.
