Inert Pesticides, another unlabeled danger

Why do we live in such secretive toxic times? What purpose do toxic chemicals serve in industry or in products? Why with all the health hazards to physical, mental and atmospheric health are they still allowed in production or in commerce? Shouldn’t health trump profits? How and why are chemical companies so powerful?

Ever Since 2005 if a pesticide is considered inert, the public is not allowed what foods or products might contain it. Chlorodifluoromethane, once only used as a refrigerant and being phased out because it depletes the ozone layer, is now used as a pesticide. Despite being recognized as a probable human carcinogen, it’s classified as an inert pesticide so we are kept from knowing what foods might contain it. How is that helpful? Chlorodifluoromethane is a poisonous substance that no one wants to consume. Support Beyond Pesticides in fighting the labeling of all pesticide ingredients.
