Hōʻalo ʻo USDA i ke kālailai ʻana i nā koena Glyphosate e pili ana i ka meaʻai no ka hōʻike makahiki

ʻO ka hui hoʻolaha hoʻolaha a ka mea kūʻai aku ʻo US Right to Know i hōʻino i ka US Department of Agriculture i kēia lā no ka hoʻopuka ʻana i kahi makahiki hōʻike hōʻike koena pesticide i hōʻalo i nā loiloi o nā koena mai glyphosate, kahi lāʻau make kiʻekiʻe e kūʻai aku nei i mea nui i nā ʻoihana mahiʻai ʻoihana, akā hoʻokahi i hoʻopili ʻia i ka maʻi ʻaʻai.

ʻO ka hōʻuluʻulu o ka papahana ʻikepili pesticide o ka USDA i kēia manawa me ka ʻikepili a ka USDA i ʻōlelo ai e "hōʻoia i ka poʻe kūʻai aku ua palekana ka meaʻai a lākou e hānai ai i ko lākou mau ʻohana." Hōʻike ka papahana i kēlā me kēia makahiki i nā ʻano meaʻai like ʻole o ka home a me nā mea i lawe ʻia mai e hōʻiliʻili i ka ʻikepili e hoʻoholo inā loaʻa ka pesticide ma o ka meaʻai i loko o nā kūlana palekana i hoʻonohonoho ʻia e ke aupuni. Hoʻomaʻamaʻa pinepine ka papahana USDA no nā pesticides he mau haneli like ʻole i kēlā me kēia makahiki, a ʻōlelo ke aupuni e nānā kikoʻī ʻia i nā meaʻai e ʻai ʻia e nā keiki a me nā pēpē.

Akā me nā koi o nā mea kūʻai aku no ka hoʻopili ʻana o glyphosate, hoʻomau ka ʻikepili USDA i ka hoʻowahāwahā ʻia i ka hoʻāʻo ʻana no ia pesticide. Hoʻokahi wale nō manawa i ka moʻolelo o ka papahana 24 mau makahiki i mālama ʻia e ka ʻoihana i nā hoʻokolohua no nā koena glyphosate. ʻO kēlā mau hoʻāʻo, i ka 2011, ua kaupalena ʻia i 300 mau laʻana soybean a loaʻa i kēlā 271 o nā laʻana he koena glyphosate.

ʻO nā herbicides i hoʻokumu ʻia ʻo Glyphosate nā pesticides make weed i hoʻohana nui ʻia ma ka honua, a ua piʻi nui ka hoʻohana ʻana o glyphosate i ʻAmelika Hui Pū ʻIa mai ka hoʻolauna 20 mau makahiki i hala o nā mea kanu i hoʻolālā ʻia e ʻae i nā mālama ʻana o ka glyphosate. ʻO Monsanto Co. kekahi o nā alakaʻi nui purveyors o ka lāʻau make ma o kāna inoa Roundup glyphosate. Hoʻopili pololei ʻia nā mea kanu meaʻai nui me ka glyphosate, e like me ka palaoa, ka soybeans, nā beets kō, canola a i kekahi mau hihia, ʻo ka palaoa, ʻoiai ʻaʻole i hana ʻenekene ʻia ka palaoa e like me ka tolerant glyphosate.

Kau ʻia ka makaʻu o ka poʻe kūʻai e pili ana i nā koena glyphosate ma luna o ka meaʻai e like me ka ʻike ʻia o ka glyphosate i ka lewa, a me nā wai, a ma hope o ka hana ʻana o nā ʻepekema maʻi ʻaʻai no ka ʻāpana o ka World Health Organization ua lawa nā hōʻike e wehewehe ai i ka glyphosate ma ke ʻano he "carcinogenic paha i nā kānaka. "

"He ʻōlelo hōʻino ia e hoʻāʻo ai ʻo USDA no nā koena pesticide he haneri akā ʻaʻole glyphosate, ʻo ia kekahi o nā kemika i hoʻohana nui ʻia i kā mākou mea kanu meaʻai," wahi a Gary Ruskin, ka luna alakaʻi o US Right to Know. "Makemake nā mea kūʻai aku e ʻike i ka nui o ka glyphosate i loko o kā mākou meaʻai. No ke aha e haʻi ʻole ai ka USDA iā mākou? Me he mea lā kēia mea makemake nui ʻia mai kā mākou aupuni pekelala iā Monsanto. Ua hala ka manawa no ka ʻAhaʻōlelo e ʻimi ai no ke aha ka hāʻawi ʻana mai o kā Obama hoʻokele i kēia mau ipo aloha iā Monsanto a me ka ʻoihana mahiʻai. "

Pono ʻo US e ʻike he hui nonprofit e noiʻi i nā pilikia e pili ana i ka ʻōnaehana meaʻai ʻoihana, a me nā hana a ka ʻoihana meaʻai i ka kulekele lehulehu. Paipai mākou i ke ʻano mākeke manuahi o ka transparency - ma ka mākeke a me ka politika - he mea nui ia e kūkulu i kahi ʻōnaehana meaʻai olakino maikaʻi aku.
