Poisoning Our Children by André Leu

 
Andre Leu is an Australian organic farmer, an internationally recognised speaker, the author of ‘The Myths of Safe Pesticides’ and “Poisoning Our Children”. He was past President of IFOAM (The International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements) and presently he is the international director of Regeneration International. As a child Andre suffered from the effects of the chemicals used on the family farm and was often ill. This experience led him to become an organic farmer and for the past 40 years has worked in all areas of organic agriculture, from growing crops, pest-control, weed management, marketing and post-harvest transport to grower organisations, developing new crops and education – not only in his home country Australia, but across Asia, Europe, the Americas and Africa.

Description

Parenting was never easy. While loving, teaching and nourishing children, parents also seek to protect them from harm. The past few generations, however, have been silently attacked by thousands of manmade, poisonous chemicals carried into homes and children’s bodies in our food supply.

The chemical-based conventional agriculture industry claims that the synthesized concoctions they sell as pesticides, herbicides, and insecticides are safe when used as directed, but does the scientific evidence truly support their assertions? When pesticide residues are found in 77 percent of all foods in the United States, it’s important to know the truth. Organic agriculturist André Leu has weeded through a wealth of respected scientific journals to present peer-reviewed evidence proving that the claims of chemical companies and pesticide regulators are not all they seem.

Learn the truth behind:

• The “Rigorously Tested” Myth. Are pesticides tested for safety before going on the market?

• The “Very Small Amount” Myth. Can even a small amount o f chemical residue be harmful?

• The “Breakdown” Myth: Do pesticides rapidly biodegrade, and are the breakdown products truly harmless?

• The “Reliable Regulatory Authority” Myth. Do the regulatory authorities review unbiased evidence before declaring a product safe?

• The “Pesticides Are Essential to Farming” Myth. Are pesticides the only thing keeping our planet from starvation?

Sadly, parents must educate themselves on this serious danger to the health and development of our most vulnerable population, our children.
