They are even starting (and I have a long story about myself supporting this) to push high blood pressure medication for EVERYONE! Many "doctors" don't even try to suggest (or prescribe) diet and exercise. No profit there.
I guess I'm just getting bitter or jaded in my increasing age, but I'd almost rather have someone push pot on my child than a "doctor" pushing drugs that they don't understand...for profit...and with the backing of schools and "child services" if you don't submit. Scary stuff!
Under the authority of the Pest Control Products Act, Health Canada's Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has concluded that the addition of a new use on potatoes to the product label of Titan ST Insecticide, containing technical grade clothianidin, is acceptable. The specific use approved in Canada is detailed on the label of Titan ST Insecticide, Pest Control Products Act Registration Number 27449.
The evaluation of this clothianidin application indicated that the end-use product has merit and value and that the human health and environmental risks associated with the new use are acceptable.
The proposed MRLs for clothianidin in Canada in or on food, to be added to the MRLs already legally established, are as follows.
1.5 Potato flakes, potato granules
0.6 Potato chips
International Situation and Trade Implications
The proposed MRLs for clothianidin in Canada are the same as corresponding tolerances established in the United States (tolerances are listed in the Electronic Code of Federal Regulations, 40 CFR Part 180, by pesticide). Currently, Codex Alimentarius MRLs2 have not been established for clothianidin on any commodity. A listing of all established Codex MRLs is available on the Codex Alimentarius Pesticide Residues in Food website.
Quoted from EPA science fact sheet on Clothianidin:
"Available data indicate that clothianidin on corn and canola should result in minimal acute toxic risk to birds. However, assessments show that exposure to treated seeds through ingestion may result in chronic toxic risk to non-endangered and endangered small birds (e.g., songbirds) and acute/chronic toxicity risk to non-endangered and endangered mammals. Clothianidin has the potential for toxic chronic exposure to honey bees, as well as other nontarget pollinators, through the translocation of clothianidin residues in nectar and pollen..In honey bees, the effects of this toxic chronic exposure may include lethal and/or sub-lethal effects in the larvae and reproductive effects in the queen."

Thank you for this, s&f.
We need to pass this info on to those who don't know- when I do pass it on through social media I normally put it out as a possibility and let the reader draw their own conclusion. As with much of what is posted on ATS, there are things the general public do not know- most are absorbed by what goes on directly around them and the mainstream media doesn't bring these articles to light. I know I am writing this to the people who know, yet I say keep up the good work!
