A dozen harmful products banned elsewhere.
THE CHEMICAL ATTACK
In recent years, we have seen significant backlash against dangerous chemicals like Roundup.
This has caused tens of millions of dollars to be awarded to affected farmers and consumers.
But Roundup is far from the only chemical we should be concerned with.
In fact, Australia is littered with a range of pesticides and toxic substances found in numerous products.
Shockingly, a dozen of them have been found to be banned in other jurisdictions like the EU and U.S. because they are harmful to human health or cause significant environmental damage.
All pesticides approved for use in Australia are regulated by the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA). Certain pesticides that are available are no longer in use overseas.
Australia authorises the use of 144 highly hazardous pesticides, compared with 73 permitted in the UK.
This includes the highly poisonous chemical Paraquat, which has been banned in more than 50 countries, including the U.K. Paraquat is a herbicide that is widely used by farmers to save arduous labour, protect against invasive weeds and produce agronomically important crops like soy, corn and cotton.
In Australia, Paraquat has been under review by the APVMA since the 1990s and is still used commercially.
According to reports: “It can only be sold to people who have completed the appropriate training, in this case an agricultural chemical users’ certificate, by licensed resellers.”
But it’s not banned. Just to the general public.
Another common herbicide found is Atrazine, a chlorinated triazine systemic herbicide that is used to selectively control annual grasses and broadleaf weeds before they emerge.
Research has found this chemical interferes with reproduction and causes cancer.
These are just two prominent examples.
Here are 12 banned substances being used on Australian food crops, animals and consumer products:
Indeed, a chemical attack is occurring at all facets of life, and has been for many decades now.
Australia seems to be the worst place for it in the Western world, with little-to-no regulation here.
Outside of Roundup, which has only recently had action taken, most remain oblivious to other dangers.
In fact, in some areas, this country is actually encouraging such a toxic transformation.
AUSTRALIA: THE WILD WEST
Authorities here in Australia have a tendency to do whatever they want, however they want, and only take action when something is discovered against them.
Let’s take a look at the recent mice plague that hit Australian farms, for example.
As desperation rose, then-Deputy Premier of New South Wales, John Barilaro, called for an immediate ‘solution’ of widespread outdoor use of the highly-toxic rodenticide, Bromadiolone.
Also known as “napalm for mice”.
The only problem was the lack of care for any environmental damage that may have been caused.
Around the world, bromadiolone is heavily restricted to mainly indoor use, usually by professionals, because of the risk of mass deaths to native wildlife such as eagles, owls, falcons and other animals.
But in Australia: ‘She’ll be right, mate. Let her rip!’
State governments also routinely use dangerous chemicals for ‘environmental weed management’.
As in, they couldn’t be bothered (or don’t have the resources) to manage these forests on-the-ground, so they just fly over the top and spray chemicals on everything in the surroundings.
All of this is part of the larger agenda of mass endocrine system disruption, including a plethora of harmful products that aren’t banned but still have devastating effects on humanity.
Of course, a major category in this attack system is ultra-processed foods and drinks.
Recently, a group of international scientists have produced what they call the ‘Nova definition’ of four classes of food, from items presented in their natural state to the ultra-processed, which are, they say, “industrial formulations typically with five or more and usually many ingredients”.
These include “substances not commonly used in culinary preparations”, and contain additives “whose purpose is to imitate sensory qualities” of natural foods such as fruit.
They are, says Prof Carlos Monteiro from the University of Brazil, “intrinsically unhealthy”.
Ultra-processed products often promote over-consumption, and studies show that ultra-processed products now dominate the food supplies of various high-income countries and are increasingly pervasive in lower-middle and upper-middle-income countries.
Citizens across the world must personally reclaim these systems that have effectively been corporatised, to the great detriment of health, the planet and democracy.
