EFSA ignores cocktail effect of multiple pesticide residues in food

European Food Safety Authority:
Hmm… seems they haven’t read their own name lately!

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has published a new  report: ‘The 2013 European Union report on pesticides in food’.

The report, shows the results for almost 81,000 food samples from 27 EU Member States, Iceland and Norway”.

Their Press Release of 12th March 2015 reports that:

“a combined total of 80,967 samples of a wide variety of processed and unprocessed food products were tested for the presence of 685 pesticides”.

It continues, “97.4% of the samples analysed fell within legal limits” but adds that,

“Residues of more than one pesticide (multiple residues) were found in 27.3% of samples”.

That’s one in four!!!! Muliple health and environmental NGOs say that EFSA does not examine the ‘cocktail effect’ of these residues on humans. Martin Dermine of Pesticide Action Network told Euractive,

“Providing statistics of single residue level in food is too simplistic”.

Ian: I totally agree. I cannot understand why people don’t understand that if we are ingesting toxins at this rate we don’t have a plan in place to continually detox – even something as basic as good hydration!

We were lucky enough to be right there with the first ever hydrogen tablets some five years ago. Now we’re still way out front with our high yield hydrogen tablets.
