He pule paʻakikī paha kēia no Monsanto Co. Hoʻonohonoho ʻia ka Agency Protection Environmental e mālama i ʻehā mau lā o nā hālāwai lehulehu i kau nui ʻia i hoʻokahi nīnau: ʻO glyphosate, ka mea kanu lāʻau hoʻohana nui loa o ka honua a me ka lynchpin i ko Monsanto pōmaikaʻi, palekana e like me Monsanto. ua hoʻolilo iā 40 mau makahiki e haʻi iā mākou ʻo ia?

Akā ʻo ka mea kupanaha, ua hālāwai ka ʻaha aʻoaʻo ʻepekema ʻo EPA (SAP) e nānā i nā pili glyphosate kūpono i ka maʻi ʻaʻai. ua "hoʻopaneʻe ʻia"ʻEhā mau lā wale nō ma mua o ko lākou hoʻomaka ʻana i ʻOkakopa 18, ma hope o ka lobbying ikaika e ka ʻoihana mahiʻai. Ua hakakā ka ʻoihana e mālama i nā hālāwai mai ka mālama ʻia ʻana, a hoʻopaʻapaʻa inā lākou e paʻa ʻia, pono e kāpae ʻia kekahi mau loea o ke ao holoʻokoʻa mai ke komo pū ʻana, me "kekahi mea i hōʻike ākea i ka manaʻo e pili ana i ka carcinogenicity o glyphosate."

I ka hoʻokokoke ʻana o nā hālāwai, ʻO America CropLife, ʻo ia ka mea e hōʻike ai i ka makemake o Monsanto a me nā agribusiness ʻē aʻe, i lawe kikoʻī ʻia me ʻelua mau ʻepekema i koho ʻia no ka panela, e ʻōlelo ana e pili ʻole paha ka poʻe loea i ka makemake o ka ʻoihana. Ma ka lā 12 ʻOkakopa, ka hui ua leka i ka EPA e kāhea ana ʻO Kauka Kenneth Portier o ka American Cancer Society e nānā hohonu loa ʻia no nā "hopena i hana mua ʻia" e pili ana i ka glyphosate.

ʻOi aku, ua kāhea ʻo CropLife no ke alakaʻi ʻana i nā epidemiologist ʻO Kauka Peter Infante e hoʻopau loa ʻia mai ke komo ʻana o ka panela: "E pono ʻo EPA i kauka Dr. Infante me kahi epidemiologist me ka ʻole o ia ʻano palapū," i haʻi aku ʻo CropLife iā EPA. Ua ʻōlelo ka hui ʻoihana kemika ʻaʻole hiki iā Infante ke hāʻawi i nā noiʻi noiʻi i kākoʻo ʻia e ka ʻoihana i ka hilinaʻi a ka ʻoihana i manaʻo ai he kūpono. Ua haʻi ʻo CropLife ua hōʻike ʻo Infante i ka wā i hala no nā mea hoʻopiʻi i nā hihia hōʻike kemikala e kūʻē iā Monsanto. Ua hoʻopaʻapaʻa ʻo Croplife ʻoiai ʻo Infante ka "epidemiologist wale nō ma ka glyphosate SAP" ua hoʻonui ʻo ia i ka mana i ka loiloi i nā ʻike epidemiological e pili ana i ka glyphosate a me ka maʻi ʻaʻai.

ʻO ka leka ʻo CropLife i kau ʻia ma ka Pōʻakolu i hala, a ma ka Pōʻalima ua hoʻolaha ka EPA e ʻimi nei ʻo ia i ka ʻike epidemiology hou aʻe e hōʻoia i ka "hōʻike ikaika mai kēlā aʻo ʻana." Ua ʻōlelo pū kekahi ʻo EPA ua haʻalele manawaleʻa aku kekahi panelist, ʻoiai ua hōʻole ka ʻoihana e ʻōlelo ʻo wai kēlā panela.

ʻO ka hoʻoneʻe ʻana i kā Infante kuleana he neʻe kolo. Ma hope o nā mea āpau, ua hoʻohana ʻo Infante i 24 mau makahiki e hana ana no ka ʻOihana Hoʻomalu a me ka Health Administration e kōkua ana i ka hoʻoholo ʻana i nā pilikia o ka maʻi ʻaʻai i nā limahana i ka wā o ka hoʻomohala ʻia ʻana o nā mea ʻona maʻamau, e like me asbestos, arsenic, a me formaldehyde. Hoʻokomo ʻia kāna resume i kahi manawa ma ka National Institute for Safety Work and Health kahi i alakaʻi ai ʻo ia i nā noiʻi epidemiological e pili ana i nā carcinogens, a ua lawelawe ʻo ia ma ke ʻano he kūkākūkā loea i ka epidemiology no nā kino honua, e like me ka EPA a me ka World Trade Organization.

Wahi a nā kumuwaiwai kokoke i ke kūlana, noho mau ʻo Infante i panelist e like me kēia pule, akā ʻaʻohe mea maopopo ke hiki ke hoʻonohonoho hou ʻia nā hālāwai, a pehea ke ʻano o ka lālā o ka paneli ke hoʻonohonoho hou ʻia lākou. Ua hōʻole ka EPA e kūkākūkā i ka mea i koe ma ka panela a ʻo wai ka mea ʻaʻole i kēia manawa, a ua ʻōlelo kekahi poʻe e ʻike ana e kūlou maoli ana ka EPA i nā pono ʻoihana mahiʻai.

“Huhū kēia. Makemake ka ʻoihana e ʻōlelo i ko mākou akeakamai aupuni ponoʻī, nā mea kiʻekiʻe i kā lākou māla, ʻaʻole lawa kūpono no kēia mau panela. "

“Huhū kēia. Makemake ka ʻoihana e ʻōlelo i nā ʻepekema aupuni ponoʻī o mākou, nā mea kiʻekiʻe i kā lākou māla, ʻaʻole lawa kūpono no kēia mau panela, "i ʻōlelo ʻia e Michael Hansen, he ʻepekema limahana ma ka Consumers Union. "Inā makemake ka EPA e hoʻohui i nā epidemiologists keu maikaʻi loa akā no ke aha lākou i hana ʻole ai ma mua? Ke hana nei lākou i kēia ma muli o ke kaomi o ka ʻoihana. "

ʻIke maopopo ʻia ka nui o ka ʻoihana, e like me ka lehulehu. ʻO Glyphosate ka mea nui i ka Monsanto's branded herbicides Roundup a me nā lāʻau make i kūʻai ʻia e nā hui mahiʻai lehulehu a puni ka honua. ʻO ia nō hoʻi ke kī i ka 20 mau makahiki o ke kūʻai aku ʻana i nā hua glyphosate-tolerant genetically engineered e Monsanto. ʻO ka wā e hiki mai ana ke kūʻai aku ʻia o nā kemika a me nā mea kanu ke hoʻopilikia ʻia e nā manaʻo nui e hiki i ka glyphosate ke kumu i ka maʻi ʻaʻai a me nā maʻi ʻē aʻe a maʻi paha. Ke hāpai nei nā ʻepekema a puni ka honua i nā hae ʻulaʻula no nā makahiki he nui no nā noiʻi noiʻi hopohopo, a i ka makahiki i hala ka International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), i ʻōlelo ʻia he glyphosate kahi kino kanaka make paha. Ma mua o ʻekolu kakina hoʻopiʻi ua hoʻopiʻi ʻia e kūʻē iā Monsanto e nā poʻe e ʻōlelo nei ua hāʻawi ʻo Roundup iā lākou i ka lymphoma non-Hodgkin, a ke loiloi nei nā mea hoʻokele ʻEulopa a me US i ka kemika no ka hoʻomau mau ʻana.

Mai ka hoʻokaʻawale ʻana o ka IARC, ua noi ʻo Monsanto i ka EPA e hoʻihoʻi i nā ʻoihana ʻoihana palekana ka glyphosate, a hiki i kēia manawa, ua hana pololei ka EPA, e hoʻopuka ana i kahi moʻohelu o nā hōʻike a me nā memo e pili pū ana me ko Monsanto kūlana. Ua ʻimi pū ʻo Monsanto e hoʻoikaika i nā paio no ka palekana o glyphosate ma ke kuhikuhi ʻana i ke kākoʻo nā pepa noiʻi paʻi ʻia i ka hopena o Kepakemapa ma Critical Reviews in Toxicology. Ua hoʻolimalima ʻo Monsanto i ka hui i hoʻonohonoho no ka panela, a ʻo ka hapa nui o nā ʻepekema 16 e pili ana he mau limahana ʻo Monsanto ma mua a i ʻole he poʻe kūkākūkā ʻo Monsanto. ʻO hoʻokahi, ʻo Gary Williams, ua kūkākūkā pū me Monsanto no nā hihia hoʻopiʻi e pili ana i ka glyphosate. ʻOiai kēlā mau pilina, ua kapa ʻia ka noiʻi me he "kūʻokoʻa."

Me he mea lā he hoʻokamani wale ka hōʻike ʻia ʻana o ia mau ʻepekema me ka hilinaʻi ʻia e ka ʻoihana, akā ua ʻōlelo ʻia ʻaʻole kūpono nā ʻepekema e like me Infante a me Portier e ʻōlelo aʻo iā EPA ma muli o ke kuhi hewa. E like me Infante, he moʻolelo lōʻihi kā Portier ma ke ʻano he ʻepekema kūʻokoʻa. ʻO ia ka hope pelekikena o ka Statistics & Evaluation Center ma ka American Cancer Society. Ua komo ʻo ia ma luna o 60 mau hālāwai SAP ʻē aʻe a ua lawelawe ʻo ia ma nā panela aʻoaʻo a me nā aʻoaʻo aʻoaʻo no ka National Institutes of Health, National Institute of Environmental Health Science, ka National Toxicology Program, a me ka World Health Organization Food and Agriculture Organization.

ʻAʻole ʻōlelo pū ʻo Portier e pili ana i ka hopohopo ʻoihana e pili ana iā ia, ka hoʻopanee a hoʻololi paha i ka makana o ka SAP, ʻē aʻe ma mua o ka ʻōlelo ʻana i kēia lā, noho mau ʻo ia ma ka papa.

Ua ʻōlelo ʻo EPA ke "hana nei e hoʻonohonoho hou i ka wā hiki wawe." Akā ʻo ka lohi a me ka hoʻokele ʻana o ka ʻoihana e hoʻohuli i ka komo ʻana o ka panela i mea e hoʻoikaika ai i ka hilinaʻi o ka poʻe kūʻai i kahi hopena hopena.
