No ka hoʻokuʻu koke ʻana: Pepeluali 17, 2016
No ka ʻike hou aku i kāhea: Gary Ruskin, 415-944-7350, gary@usrtk.org

Ua hoʻomaikaʻi aku ka hui hoʻolaha hoʻolaha a ka US Right to Know i ka US Food and Drug Administration i kēia lā no ka hoʻolaha ʻana hoʻolālā e hoʻomaka i ka hoʻāʻo ʻana no nā koena glyphosate i ka soybeans, ka palaoa, ka waiū a me nā hua manu i waena o nā meaʻai kūpono e like me ka hopohopo e pili ana i ka mea kanu lāʻau make i puni ka honua. ʻOiai ke kuleana o ka FDA no ka palekana o ka meaʻai a no ke ana pinepine ʻana no nā koena pesticide ma luna o kekahi mau meaʻai, ʻaʻole i nānā pinepine ka ʻoihana i glyphosate i loko o kāna papahana hoʻoponopono kino koena pesticide i ka wā i hala.

ʻO Glyphosate ka mea nui i Roundup weed killer, i hana ʻia e Monsanto Co., a ʻo ia nō hoʻi ka mea hana i loko o nā haneli mau huahana lāʻau make i kūʻai ʻia a puni ka honua. ʻO ia ka lāʻau make make ākea ākea ākea ākea ākea, a ua piʻi kona hoʻohana i ʻAmelika Hui Pū ʻIa me ka hoʻolaha ʻana o nā mea kanu ʻenekini i hoʻolālā ʻia e hoʻomanawanui i ka pīpī ʻia me ka glyphosate. Akā ʻo nā hopohopo e pili ana i ka hopena o ke kemikino i ke olakino kanaka a me ke kaiapuni e ulu nei, a i Malaki 2015 ua hoʻolaha ka poʻe loea o ka World Health Organization i ka glyphosate ma ke ʻano he carcinogen kanaka paha.

"ʻO ka neʻe ʻana o ka FDA kahi hana mua maikaʻi loa ia, akā pono ka hoʻomaʻemaʻe a me ka pālahalaha ʻana o ka hoʻāʻo ʻana," wahi a Gary Ruskin, ka luna hui o US Right to Know. "E kau pū ʻo USDA ma luna o ka moku."

Mālama ka US Department of Agriculture i kāna hōʻike makahiki ponoʻī o nā meaʻai no nā koena pesticide ma o ka "papahana ʻikepili pesticide," e hōʻoia maʻamau no nā haneli pesticides he nui i kēlā me kēia makahiki. Akā hoʻokahi wale nō manawa i ka mōʻaukala o ka papahana 24 mau makahiki i mālama ai ka ʻoihana i nā hoʻokolohua no nā koena glyphosate. ʻO kēlā mau hoʻāʻo, i ka 2011, ua kaupalena ʻia i 300 mau mea soybean a ua loaʻa he 271 o nā laʻana he koena glyphosate.

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.
