Round-Up - as an example of a Pesticide OKed by EPA
- but not necessarily safe
"The product "Round-Up" is an example of inadequate testing.
It is well acknowledged that the surfactant of "Round-Up"
is more toxic than glyposate the active ingredient
which registration is based on.
The International Agency for research on cancer
has indicated that it is "sufficient" to know that 1, 4 - dioxins
(an ingredient of this herbicide)
causes cancer in animals."

EPA is ONLY 'worried' about pesticides.
Very little else generates them a lot of money like pesticides,
so that is where their money is.
Inipol EAP 22 etc. are not applied as BIOCIDES/ PESTICIDES,
so they do not have the same level of requirements.
Round-Up is one of the most popular herbicides on the market!
Comes in a cute little sprayer gun.
But is it really safe?
Products cannot admit that their "soil amendment" product makes plants GROW faster, better, thicker or lusher, just that they supply essential and often missing nutrients.
This rule is because Round-Up herbicide actually makes plants grow, but it makes them run through their life cycle so fast that they die rapidly, so now no product can claim growth stimulation without pesticide registration.
Does today's Chemical Industry Care More About Making Money -
Than what Really Could Happen to People and the Environment?
This is a Serious Problem!
"Thousand of pesticides have been marketed without the required laboratory testing.
The use of any pesticide pose some hazard.
Data on home use pesticide is insufficient, In 1987 the American Consumers Union compiled a list of 50 active ingredients of pesticides used around the home and found that 66% had been inadequately tested to determine whether they could cause cancer, 72% inadequately test for mutations, 62% for birth defects, 64% for adverse effects on reproduction, and 98% for neurobehavioral effects"

"Most of us are unaware of the extent to which we are exposed to pesticides in and around our homes and throughout the community.
Pesticides are poisons.
In humans, they can cause severe illness. They can have serious immediate effects, such as nausea or convulsion, as well as long-term effects such as cancer and reproductive damage."
Don't we all love our children - & wish for them a 'good start' in life? *
This child became an Exxon Valdez oil spill 'bioremediation' worker when he turned 18 years old - 1989
This website is dedicated to helping these workers no longer be experimented on
... to help them receive an accurate diagnosis and an effective treatment.
To stop the harm to your son or grandson or granddaughter
who are next in line in our world's workforce.
Inipol EAP 22 harmed Exxon Valdez oil spill cleanup workers?
Maybe the 1993 Prince William Sound herring run, too?

2-butoxyethanol is a poison -
Find the Exxon Valdez oil spill cleanup workers, and you will find out what it does to humans -
Forget about rats... do they live 30 years?
No one can say the long term effects are never going to happen
- that the chemical can be 'thrown off' and no harm done.
That is a lie from the chemical companies, most likely.
Does the science community really believe that?
How long can toxic effects be thrown off until it is too late?
Rat experiments won't tell you that
Look for the hemolytic anemia 2-butoxyethanol causes
Is it found - upon closer examination - in the Gulf War Syndrome Vets too -
did they daily wash their gear in Saudi Arabia, 1991 with cleaning compounds strong in 2-butoxyethanol?
Did they help to cleanup the 'oil spill?' Some did
