Do you still want to use pesticide POISONS to try to "control" pests?

Do you still want to use pesticide POISONS to try to "control" pests?

According to a study that will be published next month in Environmental Research, residential proximity to agricultural pesticide use is correlated with childhood leukemia. For more, click on: www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19700145

But dangers are lurking even closer to home if you spray for pesticides either inside or outside your home.

For a large study on how pesticides are linked with leukemia, click on: www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19590698

For a large study of how parental exposure to pesticides is linked with childhood brain cancer, click on: www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19590697

For a study on how exposure to pesticides increases risk of children's' blood cancers, click on: www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18087601

For a study of how childhood brain tumors are linked to lawn care with pesticides, click on: www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18560982

National Poison Prevention Week, March 18-24,2007 was created to highlight the dangers of poisoning and how to prevent it. One study shows that about 70,000 children in the USA were involved in common household pesticide-related (acute) poisonings or exposures in 2004. At least two peer-reviewed studies have described associations between autism rates and pesticides (D'Amelio et al 2005; Roberts EM et al 2007 in EHP). It is estimated that 300,000 farm workers suffer acute pesticide poisoning each year just in the United States - No one is checking chronic contamination.

In order to try to help "stem the tide", I have just finished re-writing my IPM encyclopedia entitled: THE BEST CONTROL II, that contains over 2,800 safe and far more effective alternatives to pesticide POISONS. This latest copyrighted work is about 1,900 pages in length and is now being updated at my new website at http://www.thebestcontrol2.com .
