    Exactly why I buy organic! I’m glad the courts stood up for the people since the politicians in DC only seem to want to stand up for Lobbyists!

      A SPLIT COURT decision, 2-1, along political lines, doesn’t mean it is the right thing to do in this specific instance.

      The Earthjustice lawyer has much time and $ invested in this issue, and is not presenting the evidence she claims exists.


      ” EPA spokesman Michael Abboud said on Thursday that “data underlying the court’s assumptions remains inaccessible and has hindered the agency’s ongoing process to fully evaluate the pesticide using the best available transparent science.” ”

      IOW, this is an example of concealment of evidence by the people who have everything to fear about the truth, and which parallels that same thing occurring with Strzok, the FBI, Comey, Mueller, Rosenstein, Clinton, Steele, etc.

        So, the agency hasn’t really identified the pesticide’s safety — that’s the exact point. Best to stop it, until more science is available…..Why would you want to eat poisoned produce if you don’t have to? You can’t just peel it off…it’s in the root system, in the water, in the soil. I mean whose side are you on when you are on the side of pesticide?

        Are you defending the manufacturer and the corporate mega farms, and their cost reductions because you believe that their stock price is your lord and master? Do you really think that safe food is some type of anti- capitalist conspiracy?

        HOW ABOUT RISK MANAGEMENT! PREVENT LAW SUITS FOR WRONGFUL DEATH BY CHEMICALS. how many times do we have to find out decades later that we consumed poison or poured it into our water or dumped containers of toxins into the woods…
        when it comes to human health, ERR ON THE SIDE OF CAUTION
