Chemicals on veggies to be banned

January 13th, 2009  | Print this page Print This Article

Kind of; European MPs have voted in favour of stricter controls on harmful chemicals, pesticides and fertilisers which are sprayed on our food (note that some of these are PROVEN to cause illnesses such as cancer on lab rats!).

Good; always eat organic where possible so that you know what you are eating.

    why does it take politicians so long to acknowledge the obvious?!

    if only that were true! i know second-hand that you can become an organice farmer overnight just by the EU changing the guideline amounts of pesticides or antibiotics and other nasties that one can use in everyday farming! (the same goes for thigs that are supposedly “free from” when actually theye just contain less of something… but it’s still in there!) a friend of mine had his farm re-classified as organic, without changing a thing. so i wonder jst how organic organic actually is!
