EPA’s anti-pesticide agenda has already fueled the resurgence of bedbugs. The agency announced today that it will ban retail sale of some rat poisons.
The release states that,
The American Association of Poison Control Centers annually receives between 12,000 and 15,000 reports of children under the age of six being exposed to these types of products.
But in order to get on that list all you have to do is call them and ask about rodenticides….it dosen’t mean that this many people are being sickened or poisoned by rodenticides.
Further, the number of “reports” regarding household bleach is far higher than for rodenticides — but the EPA isn’t taking action action Clorox.
So while the number is scary, it gives a false impression about the safety of rodenticides.
Finally, as rats were the carrier of the Black Death that wiped out somewhere between one-third to one-half or more of Europe’s population and caused tremendous social upheaval, soon we’ll be partying like it’s 1348!
