For the first time published the American Association of Paediatrics officially makes a statement on “organic foods and their role in the health and development of our children.” But instead of calling the parents to avoid buying conventionally produced food, said the association – which does not conceal the fact that agricultural products are contaminated conventionally grown with toxic pesticides – that parents can continue to safely make use of it, despite the fact that it brings various risks.
The hypocritical report by the American Academy of Paediatrics
The two-faced, hypocritical report the AAP (American Academy of Paediatrics) reads as if he had been given directly by the chemical industry in order. He concedes organically grown products while bluntly, have lower exposure to harmful pesticides, and he even says that this certain variance could have signified impact on the health of the child. Nevertheless, the report pulls in the same breath the conclusion that there was no “actual evidence” that a purely organic diet – compared with a conventional or mixed diet – has positives impact on the health status of children. For this reason, there could be no final assessment as to whether pesticides are now really dangerous for the child or not.
Food manufacturers have profit in mind
The outrageous conclusions of the report seem justified in view of the following to do: Organically grown foods are more expensive than conventional products in general. Therefore, parents would, where biologicals quality of the food is important, can only buy limited quantities. That would be economically poor development. For this reason, the experts of the AAP which risk apparently have jointly made the decision to ignore the obvious dangers associated with exposure to pesticides, and instead to encourage the parents to continue to buy the cheaper foods from conventional cultivation, regardless of emanates from these questionable products.
Pesticide manufacturers should be aware of their responsibilities
The successful author Charlotte Vallaeys wrote for the Cornucopia Institute about the AAP report: The Association of Paediatricians suggests – exactly as the manufacturer of agrochemical products have led the way for decades – that the question of whether pesticides are harmful to children or not, should be considered as unanswered until the results of further trials or definitive evidence for the safety. The dangers of the products in question would provide. With this attitude, the AAP goes on the side of the agricultural industry and the pesticide lobbyists, by setting an unreachable scientific standard. When pesticides are suspected to show in experimental animals a toxic or carcinogenic, have a significant correlation to ADHD disorders in children and trigger neurological damage among farmers and their descendants, should it really be concluded that for so long as, dangerous must be ‘classified until their safety has been proven, and not the other way around.
The burden of proof rests with the consumer
The approach of harmful substances so long to call for sure until the hazards are detected, proving the chemical industry as a pretty handy and useful as they can so shift the burden of proof to the public. And because it is highly unlikely that a non-profit organization or interest group will ever be able to be, to have prepared over many years running, horrendously expensive, and (especially!) by independent scientists’ studies of pesticides in the future indefinitely in the production our food can be used. Such a study would have the whole life of a people reflect – from cradle to grave – to documented adequate manner the effects of pesticide exposure on human health. Ultimately, should the effects of pesticides are even checked even when the children and grandchildren. Therefore, there is really no chance ever “proves” that the pesticide contamination of our food has negative effects on the health history of the child. It should not be the responsibility of our children, unintentionally provide decades later, the proof that those pesticides that they had to consume as a child, have contributed significantly to the health problems of their generation.
