Atlantic ministers plan cosmetic pesticide action

Atlantic ministers plan cosmetic pesticide action


Atlantic ministers plan cosmetic pesticide action

Last Updated: Thursday, September 17, 2009 8:57 AM AT Comments11Recommend3
CBC News
Atlantic environment ministers are working together towards a unified set of regulations governing the sale and use of pesticides for lawns.
'They'll be able to go to Nova Scotia and purchase the stuff that is banned here on P.E.I.'— P.E.I. Environment Minister Richard Brown
A ban on many lawn chemicals is already in place in New Brunswick, and P.E.I. intends to bring in similar legislation in 2010. There is no legislation being planned in Nova Scotia.
The ministers are meeting in St. John's this week, and on the agenda is an effort to unify legislation so people will not simply go to another province to buy products banned where they live.
"People will have that option. They'll be able to go to Nova Scotia and purchase the stuff that is banned here on P.E.I," said P.E.I. Environment Minister Richard Brown.
"They'll not be able to go to New Brunswick because we're basically bringing in the same set of regulations they're bringing in so it's a thing we have to work with, but today's meeting has shown that co-operation does exist there."
All four Atlantic provinces will have officials on a regional committee on cosmetic pesticide legislation. Best Blogger Tips

Are Pesticides and Herbicides Killing Us Slowly?

Are Pesticides and Herbicides Killing Us Slowly?


The farm where we’re staying this summer is owned by a longtime farmer-rancher and his wife. He’s 85 and not in the best of health. Our original contact to the owners is through one of their sons, who is health conscious and knows we are too. One of the reasons we’re here is we’re able to help them out when they need a hand. I believe, another reason we were invited to stay, was to observe and give our comments about what we saw concerning the parent’s health. Since Celinda and I are in excellent health, both reasons are easily met. We’re happy here and glad we can help. And, it allows us to leave as soon as it gets colder than we like.
Following is an observations that pertains to health. The owner, we’ll call him Joe, has been conditioned to live and believe in a world that was created during and after WWll. The pesticides and herbicides we now use so freely are offshoots of chemical warfare. After WWll, the chemical companies and others who had investments in money, power, profit, other vested interest and ties with the chemical industries, began looking for a market so they could continue doing whatever it was they were trying to achieve. At the onset of the chemical onslaught for war, it was found that bugs, trees and other living things died from chemicals intended for humans. Now, it stands to reason, humans are dying from the chemicals intended for insects and weeds.
Not long after we arrived we found out about spotted Knapweed, a non-native plant which was introduced into the U.S. from Eastern Europe in the early 1900s. Joe was spraying it with a very popular herbicide and, when we put in the garden, we asked if we could pull or dig the weed out as opposed to spraying it. That wasn’t a problem and we’ve set up a safe zone in and around the garden area. Celinda goes on periodic Knapweed patrols and has them under control to the point of not seeing any in our area, about two acres, after the second or third time she dug the roots out. Also, not long after we arrived, Joe had a couple of days of dizzy spells and chest pains. Since that time he’s had two or three more bouts of feeling dizzy, lacking energy and having chest pains.
I’d noticed him spraying weeds in the same time period as our arrival but didn’t put that and his dizzy spells together until last week when he had to be taken to the hospital just after sunrise, a 55 mile, one way, trip from where we’re living.
After the ambulance left, Celinda and I were sitting at the table in our motorhome eating breakfast when I began piecing past events together. Later, we were talking with their daughter and I told her what I’d thought about. She called her brother, our friend, who was at the hospital and gave him the information. He told the doctors but they, apparently, shrugged it off saying Joe had had an arrhythmia problem, irregular heartbeat, caused by ventricle fribillation, a condition when the heart’s electrical activity becomes disordered.
Could it be that the supposed problem(s) were really symptoms and the root cause was the chemicals he’d been spraying the evening before? Many of the chemicals we now have in our lives on a daily basis are residual, they aren’t removed from the body and continue to build up in the liver, kidneys and cardio/vascular system. Many of those same chemicals affect the central nervous system, which controls the heart’s electrical activity.
When we arrived here, we were eight weeks late and were playing catch up. Neither of us had any background information about Joe’s past medical history and it wasn’t until the first dizzy spell that I started thinking about the possible cause(s). I believe, the first dizzy spell was the day after he spent a long time spraying weeds but I don’t know that for sure. I know the second dizzy spell was the next day and, when he went to the hospital, he’d sprayed the evening before. Since Joe’s last problem, I’ve been writing down when he sprays and he did late in the afternoon yesterday. I didn’t see him until early in the afternoon today. He said he’d felt poorly all morning and had no energy, which is a symptom of ventricle fribillation.
Next time he sprays, the next morning I’ll ask him how he feels. If his symptoms are the same, I’ll tell him what I’ve seen. I can only give him the information, and it will be tough. Joe grew up when weeds had to be plowed under, pulled or dug out by hand. Chemical sprays seemed to be the answer, but are they? Pinning them down as the culprit is very difficult, since the problems can take years to manifest due to the slow creep of residual buildup.

Chemicals in Our Diets Produce Fat People

Chemicals in Our Diets Produce Fat People

(NaturalNews) Most people don`t think about how chemicals in their diets affect their weight or weight loss efforts. But the man-made chemicals you consume on a regular basis can play a big role in whether you`re fat or not - even if those chemicals don`t contain a single calorie.To understand this, you'll need to know that your liver is your primary detoxification organ. Your liver is also your primary fat-burning organ. Therefore, the more unnatural chemicals you consume on a regular basis, the more time and energy your liver needs to spend detoxifying you. But, the more your liver is consumed with the role of detoxification, the less time and energy it will have for burning fat. It`s really that simple.For example, we all clearly agree that pesticides are poisons; their primary purpose is to kill living organisms. We know that most non-organic foods are laced with pesticides, and we understand that pesticides don`t magically become non-poisonous inside our bodies. Our bodies see pesticides as poisons too.How does your body treat a poison? It attempts to detoxify it. This means your body attempts to render the poison harmless, and then removes it from your body, generally through your colon. Your colon is your primary organ used to eliminate toxins from the body, and your liver is the organ most often responsible for rendering poisons harmless.But what happens when people eat unnatural chemicals in most meals?Our livers become overwhelmed with the need to detoxify all of those chemicals and poisons, and the poisons start to back up in our blood. The fact that this is happening in just about everyone has been confirmed by several looks inside the average person`s blood.Your liver will also store toxins and poisons for you that is was unable to render harmless. It does this to keep those poisons out of your bloodstream and from circulating in your body.But now your liver, in addition to being overwhelmed detoxifying all of the chemicals you`re consuming each day, is also losing its functionality and has become a storage facility for poisons it couldn`t render harmless. Some estimates are that three fourths of the average person`s liver is used to store toxins that the liver was unable to render harmless.No wonder so many people think losing weight is challenging... Their primary fat burning organ is overwhelmed with another task, and it's become only half functional.What is the answer? There are a couple of them.The first is to stop consuming chemicals in your diet on a regular basis. This generally means giving up processed foods, except perhaps on the rare occasion, and eating organic foods as much as possible. Plant-based foods, particularly vegetables, are very liver friendly. If you learn how to prepare them so they`re delicious, it`ll be much easier for you...This will prevent many new chemicals from entering your body, and is a tremendous step in the right direction. But what about those poisons already stored in your liver and circulating in your blood? Many people think that simply changing their diet to a more natural, chemical-free diet will address past toxicity, but for most, it isn`t powerful enough.Liver cleansing is a powerful hundred year old practice that uses coffee enemas to detoxify the liver. The process helps your liver release its stored toxins into your colon for immediate removal. And through the liver, the bloodstream is also cleansed. Using coffee enemas regularly, with a natural diet, can make weight loss very easy by getting your prime fat-burning organ back on your side.More:<>The Fat Flush Plan, Ann Louise Gittleman, Ph. D.<>The Liver Cleansing Diet, Dr. Sandra Cabothttp://www.whatsonmyfood.org/http://www.naturaltherapypages.com....http://www.hepctrust.org.uk/The+Liv...http://www.naturalnews.com/026584_c...http://www.naturalnews.com/026559_c...

The Spray Advisory does not mean you are safe from pesticides...

Just to clarify...

I had someone suggest to me that this must be a great summer with nearly all days being a "no go" for spray activities.

In an ideal situation, this would be true however, this is a warning that many companies are still applying pesticides against the regulations.

If a company sprays pesticides in a manor which does not comply with provincial and federal law, they are doing so illegally and are putting the environment, children, our water supplies and your health at risk.

Pesticides are toxic and are being banned across Canada. Newfoundland still lags behind in health and environmental issues.

If you see a company spraying pesticides on a "no spray" day in and around the St. John's area, They are putting themselves, our children and the environment at risk... please take the time to report the incident to the Department of Environment (709-729-2577) & the Department of Health (709-729-3124).
