以下是美国NPMA针对北美杀虫剂行动联盟发布“杀虫剂对儿童健康及智力影响”的声明。美国人真的很较真,很火爆。佩服!不过,NPMA跑得实在太主动了,很容易被公众认为是杀虫剂生产商的托了。

Response to Pesticide Action Network of North America's Report on Effects of Pesticides on Children's Health & Intelligence
Overview and Speaking Points 

Prepared for the National Pest Management Association

By the Professional Pest Management Alliance

October 10, 2012

 

Background

On October 10, 2012, the Pesticide Action Network of North America (PANNA), an organization whose self-proclaimed mission is to "replace the use of hazardous pesticides with ecologically sound and socially just alternatives," published a new report ("A Generation in Jeopardy: How Pesticides Are Undermining Our Children's Health and Intelligence") detailing a review of dozens of studies that claim to examine the impact of pesticides on children's health, and calling for effective pesticide regulations and policy changes to phase out the use of pesticides on agricultural products and in places where children live, learn and play.

 

PANNA claims the analysis revealed the following:

  • Evidence linking pesticide exposures with harm to the structure and functioning of the brain and nervous system.
  • Pesticide exposure contributes to a number of increasingly common health outcomes for children, including cancer, birth defects and early puberty.
  • Emerging science suggests that pesticides may be important contributors to the current epidemic of childhood asthma, obesity and diabetes.
  • Extremely low levels of pesticide exposure can cause significant health harms, particularly during pregnancy and early childhood.

The findings of this study were published by several outlets, largely online, on October 10, including The San Francisco Chronicle, The Fresno Bee, BusinessWeek, ScienceDaily and Bakersfield Californian  websites. Due to the findings and our experience with previous studies of this nature, we are closely monitoring this story to see whether it receives further attention by national and other local media outlets and generates inquiries from customers and/or employees.

Statement

 "NPMA is aware of the findings of this report and the studies citied within, as they have been published over a period of several years. We cannot speak to the credibility of the studies examined in this report. However, the science the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) uses to evaluate products is sound.  Pest management products used within the industry are registered by the EPA after it has reviewed extensive heath and safety data and made a determination that the product meets the federal government's tough health standards. Consumers should feel confident that the application of these products is safe to both family and home when applied correctly by qualified and licensed pest professionals as directed on the product label.

The professional pest control industry's primary concern is for the health, safety and protection of its customers and the American public. Common household pests pose significant health risks including the transmission of bacteria and disease, and can exacerbate respiratory issues such as allergies and asthma. As such, pest control should not be taken lightly, but rather it should be handled in partnership with a licensed pest professional to properly identify, assess and treat the infestation. Consumers should discuss Integrated Pest Management solutions with their pest professional."
