Herbicides and Pesticides are Bad for You

Not sure this is really news, but there are a couple of interesting data points here.  From Dr. Joseph P. Farrell:

The Ministry of Health in Córdoba, Argentina, reveals in a report that deaths from cancerous tumors are double the national average in areas where genetically engineered crops are grown and agro-chemicals are used.”

There are a bunch of assumptions that must be made, or investigated, before you can really conclude anything at all.

  1. The way that sentence is written it seems like in other areas of the country little or no chemicals are used in farming.
  2. It would seem that, unless these crops are consumed entirely within the areas where they are grown, the complaint or problem here is against the chemicals used with the GMO crops, and not the resulting GMO product itself.
  3. Argentina at this point has very little to lose, and so they are just bringing out all the complaints, even against the biggest of the big boys.  This might be really good news for everyone.
