NRDC still defending alar

No one was ever harmed by alar — or any legally administered pesticide.

The Natural Resources Defense Council writes in the Washington Examiner:

The truth is this: Alar was and is considered a carcinogen by scientists, and remains banned in the United States by the Environmental Protection Agency on the basis of numerous scientific studies.

  1. I find it hard to believe the NRDC is “defending alar”. That’s something the farmers would do.

    Also, alar is not a pesticide. It’s a growth regulator, which is used to ensure the apples ripen at the same time.
