Inkampani yeCoca-Cola isebenzise uxhaso lwayo lwezingqungquthela zezempilo zomphakathi zomhlaba wonke ukususa icala ngobhubhane lokukhuluphala kude nemikhiqizo yalo, ngokocwaningo kwi-International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health.

Ucwaningo lususelwa ku amadokhumenti mayelana ne-2012 and 2014 International Congresses of Physical Activity and Public Health (ICPAPH), etholwe ngezicelo zomphakathi ezirekhodiwe yi-US Right to Know, iqembu lezempilo lomphakathi eliphenyayo.

Ucwaningo luthole ukuthi “iCoke ibonisene nabaphenyi bayo abaxhasiwe ngezihloko ezizokwethulwa e-ICPAPH, yize besho esidlangalaleni okunye, ngomzamo wokususa icala lokunyuka kwesifo sokukhuluphala kanye nezifo ezihlobene nokudla kude nemikhiqizo yazo ziye ekusebenzeni komzimba nokuzikhethela komuntu ngamunye. . ”

"ICoke isebenzise i-ICPAPH ukukhuthaza amaqembu ayo angaphambili kanye nokuxhasa amanethiwekhi ocwaningo nokuqinisa ubudlelwano nabaholi bezempilo bomphakathi ukuze basebenzise igunya labo ukuletha imiyalezo kaCoke," kubhala ababhali besifundo.

"Lokhu kuphoqelelwa ngokungafanele kwezingqungquthela zezempilo zomphakathi ukufeza imiyalezo kaCoca-Cola kuqeda ukwethenjwa kwembangela yezempilo yomphakathi," kusho uGary Ruskin, umqondisi omkhulu we-US Right to Know. "Sekuyisikhathi esidlule ukuthi umphakathi wezempilo womphakathi uziguqule ube yinto engeke yathengwa noma iqashwe."

Imibhalo ikhombisa ukuthi uRhona Applebaum, owayengumphathi omkhulu wesayensi nezempilo ngaleso sikhathi, uCoca-Cola, wayefuna ukugxila “indlela aziphatha ngayo nogqozi, ”Okukude kakhulu nohulumeni noma isenzo esenziwe ngokuhlanganyela njengezintela zesoda noma ushukela, ukuqothulwa kwezikhangiso zesoda nokumaketha, kanye nezikhalazo ezibhekiswe ezinkampanini zesoda, kanye nezinye izinqubomgomo.

"Uhlelo lokukhiqiza nokusabalalisa ucwaningo oluphathelene nempilo yomphakathi ludinga ukuvikelwa kangcono ethonyeni lamabhizinisi anezintshisekelo ezicacile ukuthi ziphikisana nalezo zezempilo yomphakathi," kusho uBenjamin Wood, ongomunye wababhali abambisene nalolu cwaningo. "Isinyathelo esisodwa sokufeza lokho ukuqeda zonke izinhlobo zoxhaso kumafemu asebenza ezimbonini ezilimaza impilo."

Ucwaningo lubizwa ngokuthi “I-Coca-Cola Yayakhele Kanjani I-International Congress Ngomsebenzi Wokuzivocavoca Nempilo Yomphakathi: Ukuhlaziywa Kokushintshaniswa Kwe-imeyili phakathi kuka-2012 no-2014. ” Yabhaliswa ngokubambisana nguBenjamin Wood, udokotela wezokwelapha kanye nomfundi we-PhD eDeakin University; UGary Ruskin; no-Associate Professor Gary Sacks, naye ovela eDeakin University.

Leli phephandaba lithi “ukusatshalaliswa kolwazi lwesayensi ngezingqungquthela zesayensi kufanele kuvikelwe kangcono ezinhlotsheni ezifihlekile nezingabonakali zomthelela wenkampani.

ICoca-Cola Front Group Izamile Ukuqaphela Izimali ZikaCoke Nendima Eyisihluthulelo, kusho Ucwaningo

 UCoca-Cola Ugcinwe "Umndeni We-imeyili" Wabahlanganyeli Bezemfundo Yomphakathi

AbakwaCoca-Cola Co. kanye nezifundiswa eziseqenjini layo eliphambili iGlobal Energy Balance Network (GEBN) bazamile ukusitha iqhaza elibalulekile likaCoke nokuxhasa iqembu, ngokusho kwe isifundo esisha kushicilelwe namhlanje ku Ukudla okunempilo yomphakathi. UCoke kanye nezifundiswa bazame ukunciphisa ubukhulu obubonakalayo bemali kaCoke engu- $ 1.5 million kanye neqhaza lenkampani ekwakheni i-GEBN. UCoke ubuye wagcina "umndeni we-imeyili" wezifundiswa zezempilo zomphakathi uCoke abasebenzise ukukhuthaza izintshisekelo zawo.

Ucwaningo belususelwa emibhalweni etholwe ngezicelo zamarekhodi omphakathi ezenziwa yi-US Right to Know, okuyiqembu eliphenya ngempilo yomphakathi neqembu labathengi. UCoke udale i-GEBN ukubukela phansi ukuxhumana phakathi kokukhuluphala neziphuzo ezinoshukela, njengengxenye yako “Impi” nomphakathi wezempilo womphakathi. IGEBN iphele ngo-2015.

"Lena indaba yokuthi uCoke wasebenzisa kanjani izifundiswa zezempilo zomphakathi ukwenza amasu kagwayi akudala ukuvikela inzuzo yawo," kusho uGary Ruskin, umqondisi omkhulu we-US Right to Know. "Kuyiphuzu eliphansi emlandweni wezempilo yomphakathi, futhi isexwayiso mayelana nezingozi zokwamukela uxhaso lwezinkampani zomsebenzi wezempilo womphakathi."

Mayelana noxhaso lukaCoke, uJohn Peters, uprofesa wezokwelapha e-University of Colorado, kusho: “Ngokuqinisekile kuzofanele sidalule le mali [yeCoca-Cola] esikhathini esithile. Esingancamela ukuba nabanye abaxhasi basheshe bagibele… Njengamanje, sinabaxhasi ababili. UCoca Cola nomnikeli othile ongaziwa… .UJim [Hill] noSteve [Blair], bayabandakanya yini amaNyuvesi njengabaxhasi / abasekeli abaphumelela ukuhlolwa kobuso obomvu? ”

Kwenye i-imeyili, UJohn Peters uyachaza, "Siphethe eminye imibuzo ye-GEBN kanti ngenkathi sidalula uCoke njengomxhasi asifuni ukudalula ukuthi banikele malini."

Leli phepha liphinde linikeze ubufakazi bokuhola kukaCoke kweqembu elibumbene lezifundiswa zezempilo zomphakathi elikhiphe ucwaningo nemiyalezo yezobudlelwano bomphakathi exhasa uCoke. URhona Applebaum, owayengu-VP ngaleso sikhathi nowayengumphathi omkhulu wesayensi nezempilo eCoke, wasebenzisa igama elithi “umndeni we-imeyili”Ukuchaza inethiwekhi. Leli phephandaba lithi, “iCoca-Cola isekele inethiwekhi yezifundiswa, 'njengomndeni we-imeyili' othuthukisa imiyalezo ehambisana necebo layo lobudlelwano bomphakathi, futhi yafuna ukuxhasa lezo zifundiswa ekuqhubekiseleni phambili imisebenzi yazo nokwakha izikhungo zazo zezempilo zomphakathi ezihlangene . ”

"Umndeni we-imeyili kaCoke uyisibonelo sakamuva nje sokuthengiswa okwethusayo kweyunivesithi nomsebenzi wezempilo womphakathi," kusho uRuskin. "Izifundiswa zezempilo yomphakathi emndenini we-imeyili neCoke zifana nezazi zobugebengu emndenini we-imeyili no-Al Capone."

Isifundo sanamuhla kwi-Public Health Nutrition osihloko sithi "Ukuhlola imizamo kaCoca-Cola yokuthonya impilo yomphakathi 'ngamazwi abo': ukuhlaziywa kwama-imeyili eCoca-Cola anezazi zezempilo zomphakathi ezihola iGlobal Energy Balance Network." Yabhalwa ngokubambisana nguPaulo Serôdio, ocwaninga naye e-University of Barcelona; UGary Ruskin, umqondisi omkhulu we-US Right to Know; UMartin McKee, uprofesa wezempilo yomphakathi waseYurophu, iLondon School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine; noDavid Stuckler, uprofesa eBocconi University.

Ababhali ngokubambisana ocwaningweni lwanamuhla nabo babhale ucwaningo ngeCoke ne-GEBN yeJenali ye-Epidemiology & Community Health enesihloko esithi “Izinhlangano zezesayensi kanye 'nempi' kaCoca-Cola nomphakathi wezempilo womphakathi: imininingwane evela embhalweni wemboni yangaphakathi. "

Amaphepha eDicamba: Imibhalo Eyisihluthulelo Nokuhlaziywa

Phrinta imeyili Ungahlukıselana Ephathwayo

Inqwaba yabalimi ezungeze i-United States imangalela iMonsanto Co yangaphambili, eyathengwa ngo-2018 yiBayer AG, kanye ne-congresserate BASF ngomzamo wokwenza izinkampani ziphendule ngezigidi zamahektare omonakalo wezitshalo abalimi abathi zibangelwa ukusetshenziswa okungekho emthethweni okusetshenzisiwe i ukhula lubulala i-dicamba yamakhemikhali, ukusetshenziswa okukhuthazwa yizinkampani.

Icala lokuqala ukuthethwa kwecala laxabanisa izinkampani zaseMissouri eziphathelene nezinkampani kwaholela ekutheni kukhishwe isinqumo esiyizigidi ezingama- $ 265 ezinkampanini. I- amajaji aklonyelisiwe $ 15 million kumonakalo wokunxephezela kanye nezigidi ezingama- $ 250 kumonakalo wokujezisa.

Icala lifakwe enkantolo ye- Inkantolo Yesifunda Sase-US Yesifunda SaseMpumalanga yeMissouri, Southeastern Division, Idokodo Lombuso # 1: 16-cv-00299-SNLJ. Abanikazi beBader Farms basola ukuthi izinkampani zakha uzungu lokudala "inhlekelele yezemvelo" ezokwengeza abalimi ukuthi bathenge imbewu ebekezelela i-dicamba. Imibhalo esemqoka evela kulelo cala ingatholakala ngezansi.

Ihhovisi le-EPA loMhloli Jikelele (i-OIG) uhlela ukuphenya ukugunyazwa kwe-ejensi yemithi emisha yokubulala ukhula i-dicamba ukuthola ukuthi ngabe i-EPA iyayilandela yini imigomo yenhlangano kanye "nezimiso ezizwakalayo ngokwesayensi" ngenkathi ibhalisa ama-dicamba herbicides amasha.

ISENZO SENKULULEKO

Ngokwehlukana, ngoJuni 3, 2020. INkantolo Yokudluliswa Kwamacala yase-US Yesekethe Lesishiyagalolunye yathi i-Environmental Protection Agency yephule umthetho ngokuvumela ukubulawa kwe-dicamba okwenziwe yiBayer, BASF kanye neCorteva Agrisciences kanye kuguqulwe ukugunyazwa yi-ejensi wemithi yokubulala ukhula ethandwayo esuselwa ku-dicamba eyenziwe yizigebenga ezintathu zamakhemikhali. Lesi sinqumo sikwenze kwaba semthethweni ukuthi abalimi baqhubeke nokusebenzisa lo mkhiqizo.

Kodwa i-EPA yasishaya indiva isinqumo senkantolo, yakhipha isaziso ngoJuni 8 kusho lokho Abalimi bangaqhubeka nokusebenzisa imishanguzo yokubulala ukhula yezinkampani kuze kube nguJulayi 31, yize inkantolo isho ngokukhethekile ngokulandelana kwayo ukuthi ibingafuni ukubambezeleka ekuphumeni lokho kugunyazwa. Inkantolo ibalule umonakalo owenziwe ukusetshenziswa kwe-dicamba ehlobo elidlule ezigidini zamahektare ezitshalo, izivande neziza zemifino ezweni lonke lase-US.

Ngo-June 11, i-2020, abakhongi ecaleni wafaka isimangalo esiphuthumayo ukufuna ukuphoqelela umyalelo wenkantolo nokubamba i-EPA ngendelelo. Izinhlangano eziningi zamapulazi zijoyine iCorteva, iBayer neBASF ekuceleni inkantolo ukuthi ingaphoqeleli ngokushesha ukuvinjelwa. Imibhalo itholakala ngezansi.

ISENDLALELO: I-Dicamba isetshenziswe ngabalimi kusukela ngeminyaka yama-1960s kepha ngemikhawulo ebibhekele amandla amakhemikhali ukukhukhumala nokuhamba ngamandla- ukusuka kude lapho efafazwe khona. Ngenkathi imikhiqizo yokubulala ukhula edumile kaMonsanto, njenge-Roundup, iqala ukuphelelwa amandla ngenxa yokuphikiswa kokhula okusakazekile, uMonsanto wanquma ukwethula uhlelo lokutshala i-dicamba olufana nohlelo lwalo oludumile lweRoundup Ready, olwalubhanqa imbewu ebekezelela i-glyphosate ne-glyphosate herbicides. Abalimi abathenga imbewu entsha ebekezelela izakhi zofuzo ze-dicamba bangaphatha kalula ukhula olunenkani ngokufafaza amasimu wonke nge-dicamba, noma ngabe izinyanga zikhula ngokufudumele, ngaphandle kokulimaza izitshalo zabo. IMonsanto umemezele ukusebenzisana ne-BASF ngo-2011. Lezi zinkampani zithe imishanguzo yabo emisha ye-dicamba izobe incipha kakhulu futhi ingathambeki kangako kunezindlela ezindala ze-dicamba.

I-Environmental Protection Agency yavuma ukusetshenziswa kwe-Monsanto's dicamba herbicide “XtendiMax” ngo-2016. I-BASF yathuthukisa eyayo i-dicamba herbicide eyibiza nge-Engenia. Kokubili i-XtendiMax ne-Engenia zathengiswa okokuqala e-United States ngo-2017.

IMonsanto iqale ukuthengisa imbewu yayo ebekezelela i-dicamba ngonyaka we-2016, futhi isimangalo esibalulekile sabamangali ukuthi ukuthengisa imbewu ngaphambi kokuvunyelwa kokulawulwa kwemithi yokubulala ukhula entsha ye-dicamba kukhuthaze abalimi ukuthi bafafaze amasimu ngezinhlobo ezindala ze-dicamba. Icala leBader lithi: “Imbangela yokucekelwa phansi kwezitshalo zikaMmangali Bader Farms ukukhishwa kwamabomu kommangalelwa uMonsanto ngamabomu nangobudedengu kohlelo lwesitshalo olungasebenzi kahle - okuyi-soya yalo eguqulwe ngokwezakhi zofuzo i-Roundup Ready 2 Xtend kanye nembewu kakotini iBollgard II Xtend (“ izilimo ze-Xtend ” ) - ngaphandle kwesihlanganisi esivunyelwe i-EPA esivunyelwe i-dicamba herbicide. ”

Abalimi bathi izinkampani ziyazi futhi zilindele ukuthi imbewu entsha izokhuthaza ukusetshenziswa kabanzi kwe-dicamba kangangokuba ukukhukhuleka kuzolimaza amasimu abalimi abangayithenganga imbewu ekwazi ukubekezelela i-dicamba. Abalimi basola ukuthi lokhu bekuyingxenye yohlelo lokwandisa ukuthengiswa kwembewu ebekezelela izakhi zofuzo ze-dicamba. Abaningi basola ukwakheka okusha kwe-dicamba okuthengiswa yizinkampani nakho kuyakhukhula futhi kudale ukulimala kwezitshalo njengoba nje izinhlobo ezindala zenzile.

Ngeminye imininingwane mayelana ne-dicamba, sicela ubone eyethu ishidi lamaqiniso le-dicamba.
