(Paʻi mua 'ia ma Nūhou olakino kaiapuni)

Helu i kahi kiko ʻē aʻe no ka mana ʻoihana ma luna o ka pale o ka lehulehu.

ʻO US Rep Lamar Smith, ka luna o ka US House of Representatives Committee on Science, Space, & Technology, ua hoʻohoka ʻia kahi hoʻolohe ʻana o ke kōmike no ka lā 6 o Pepeluali me kahi papahana e kū pono ana i ka hoʻouka kaua ʻana i kekahi o nā ʻepekema maʻi ʻaʻai nui o ka honua.

Hāʻawi ʻia i ka ʻoiaʻiʻo ʻo ka maʻi ʻaʻai ka kumu alua o ka make maʻAmelika Hui Pū ʻIa, ʻike maopopo ʻia e kākoʻo ana kā mākou poʻe kau kānāwai i ka ʻepekema maʻi ʻaʻai ma mua o ka hoʻāʻo ʻana e kahakaha. Akā ua hana ʻo Smith ma hope o ka World Agency Organization for International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) huhū ʻo Monsanto Co. i kona hoʻolaha ʻana i ka pesticide glyphosate, kahi mea nui i nā huahana hoʻomake nāhelehele a Monsanto, e lilo i carcinogen paha.

ʻOiai ua kapa ʻia ka hoʻolohe ʻana “I ka pale ʻana i ka pono ʻepekema: Ke nānā nei i ka Polokalamu IARC Monograph a me ka loiloi ʻo Glyphosate, ” ʻaʻole nalowale ka mea hoʻohenehene o ka mea wehewehe. i ka poʻe e ukali nei i kā Smith mau hana e hoʻohoka a hōʻole i kēia ʻoihana noiʻi maʻi maʻi.

In nā leka i ke alakaʻi a IARC, Smith ua kau hou i no nā moʻolelo hoʻopunipuni a me nā moʻolelo nūhou ʻole i kanu ʻia e Monsanto a me nā mea kōkua kemika, a ua kuhikuhi ʻia i ka "ʻano koʻikoʻi o kēia mau hopohopo e pili ana i nā lilo o nā kālā ʻauhau."

He mea pono e hoʻomaopopo i ke kumumanaʻo e kau i ka International Agency for Research on Cancer ma ka noho wela i hoʻoneʻe ʻia ma kahi o ʻekolu mau makahiki i hala aku nei i ka wānana ʻana o Monsanto e ʻike nā ʻepekema maʻi ʻaʻai kūwaha honua i kāna mea hoʻomake nāhelehele i loaʻa ka loaʻa o ka carcinogenic ʻO ka hui i ʻōlelo ʻia e like me ka nui i nā kamaʻilio kūloko i lawe ʻia i ka malamalama ma o ka hoʻopiʻi ʻana i kēia manawa.

Hōʻike pū nā palapala i ka lā ʻo Pepeluali 2015, hoʻokahi mahina ma mua o ka hoʻohālikelike ʻana o IARC, i ka wā i waiho aku ai nā luna o Monsanto kahi hoʻolālā hoʻolālā e hōʻino i nā ʻepekema maʻi ʻaʻai. Ua hoʻolālā ʻia ka hoʻolālā e "orchestrate outcry with IARC decision."

ʻO nā hana e hana i ka ʻike lehulehu e pili ana i ka IARC i hōʻiliʻili i ke kauwela i hala aku nei i ka manawa a Monsanto i kākoʻo ai i ka puna moʻolelo haʻi wahaheʻe i kahi mea kākau Reuters nāna i hana i kahi nūhou i kī ʻia a puni ka hona a ua lilo ia i mea kamaʻilio nui no ka hoʻouka kaua kūʻē iā IARC.

Ua hilinaʻi ka moʻolelo i ka waiho ʻana o kahi ʻepekema IARC i kapa ʻia ʻo Aaron Blair a hōʻike ʻia ua kāohi ʻo Blair i ka ʻike koʻikoʻi e hiki ai ke hoʻololi i ka hoʻohālikelike glyphosate IARC. ʻAʻole i hāʻawi ʻo Reuters i kahi loulou i ka waihona, i kēlā manawa ʻaʻole i waiho ʻia i kekahi ʻaha a ʻaʻole i loaʻa ākea.

Ua holo ʻo Chairman Smith me ka moʻolelo, e ʻōlelo ana ua "ʻae ʻo Blair i ka ʻike ʻana ua hiki ke pale ʻia kēia noiʻi ʻana" ka hoʻonohonoho ʻana o glyphosate ma ke ʻano he carcinogen paha.

ʻO ka poʻe e lawe manawa ana e heluhelu maoli ka waiho ana, ka mea i hoʻolaha ʻia i kēia manawa, e ʻike ʻaʻole Blair i ʻōlelo i kekahi mea e like me ia, a ʻo ka ʻoiaʻiʻo ua kūʻē i nā manawa he nui i ka nānā ʻole ʻia o ka ʻikepili i nīnau ʻia a no laila ʻaʻole kūpono e noʻonoʻo ʻia e IARC.

ʻO kahi moʻolelo wahaheʻe e like me ka mea i koi ʻia e ka ʻoihana kemika a ua hoʻopiʻi hou ʻia e Smith i hoʻopiʻi iā IARC no ka hemo ʻana i nā loiloi i loaʻa ʻole ka pilina ma waena o glyphosate a me ka maʻi ʻaʻai mai kāna hōʻike hope loa. ʻAʻole maopopo iā Smith a me ka hui a mālama ʻole paha i ka hoʻopau ʻia ʻana o IARC no Monsanto mau ʻōlelo i ka Ua ʻōlelo nā kānaka ʻepekema maʻi ʻaʻai hiki ʻole ke hōʻoia ʻia.

Nā luna IARC ua kikoʻī ua hoʻomau ʻia nā mea wahaheʻe iā lākou e ka ʻoihana kemika akā ua hāʻule ka pale ma nā pepeiao kuli.

Pono ʻo Monsanto e hōʻino i nā ʻepekema maʻi ʻaʻai honua no ka mea ʻo ia ka IARC e loaʻa nei nā nalu i hāpai ʻia o ka hoʻopiʻi ʻana kūʻē iā Monsanto, a ua hōʻeuʻeu i nā neʻe e pāpā i ka kemika i kekahi o nā ʻāina ʻEulopa.

Akā ʻoiai ʻo Monsanto a me nā pono ʻenehana ʻē aʻe e hopohopo nei e pili ana i nā piliona kālā i loaʻa loaʻa iā lākou i kēlā me kēia makahiki mai nā huahana glyphosate, ʻo ka hoʻouka kaua ʻana i kēia pūʻulu ʻepekema kūʻokoʻa e pili ana iā mākou āpau.

Ma kahi o 39 pākēneka o nā kāne a me nā wahine e noho ana i ʻAmelika Hui Pū ʻIa e manaʻo ʻia e ʻike ʻia me ka maʻi ʻaʻai i ko lākou ola, e like me ka National Cancer Institute.

No kēia makahiki wale nō, ua kuhi ka American Cancer Society e ʻoi aku ana ma mua o 1.68 miliona mau kānaka i hōʻoia hou ʻia me ka maʻi ʻaʻai a ʻoi aku ma mua o 600,000 i make i ka maʻi ʻaʻai. Ma ka honua holoʻokoʻa, aia kekahi mau mea he 14 miliona mau maʻi ʻaʻai e kū nei i kēlā me kēia makahiki, a manaʻo ʻia e helu ʻia kēlā helu ma kahi o 22 miliona e 2030.

Ka maʻi ʻaʻai “pili i ke ola o kēlā me kēia kanaka, ma ka pololei a i ʻole ka ʻole,” a ma ʻō aku o ka nui o ke ola a me ke olakino ke kumu kūʻai ʻo ʻAmelika Hui Pū ʻIa ma mua o $ 200 biliona i loko o nā kumukūʻai lapaʻau a lilo ka hana, e like me ka US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) .

I mea e hōʻemi ai i nā make mai ka maʻi ʻaʻai e pono mākou e hoʻokau hou i ka pale ʻana iā ia ma mua, a me kahi ʻāpana nui o kēlā "pale mua" e like me ka hōʻike 2016 a ka HHS National Toxicology Program (NTP) "e ʻike i ka nā kinikini. ”

ʻIke loa, makemake nā ʻoihana e kūʻai aku i nā kemika i hoʻopili ʻia i ka maʻi ʻaʻai e ʻike i ka IARC defunded a hoʻopau ʻia. Ua ʻōlelo nui lākou ma o ka inoa disingenuous ʻAha Kūkā no ka pololei i ka noiʻi olakino lehulehu (CAPHR), kahi hui kōkua ʻole i hoʻokumu ʻia e ka American Chemistry Council i hoʻokahi makahiki i hala me ka pahuhopu kikoʻī o e paipai ana i ka “hoʻoponopono”O IARC.

Akā no ka ʻike nui ʻana i kā mākou poʻe kau kānāwai i ka hoihoi ʻana i nā pono ʻoihana i ka wā e pili ana nā pono palekana lehulehu i nā maka he haʻahaʻa hou paha ia i kā politika ʻAmelika. ʻO kēia ke ola maoli a me nā mea make.

Pono e mālama ʻia kā mākou mau kauā lehulehu, e kākoʻo i nā ʻepekema e hana nei e ʻike i nā carcinogens, a e hoʻi i hope i nā pono ʻoihana e makemake e hōʻino i ka ʻepekema e hoʻoweliweli nei i kāna loaʻa kālā.

ʻO ke ʻano pololei o ka ʻepekema.
