Description The Myths of Safe Pesticides de Andre Leu:

The chemical-based conventional agriculture industry claims that the synthesized concoctions they sell as pesticides, herbicides, and insecticides are safe when used as directed, but does the scientific evidence truly support their assertions? Organic agriculturist and lecturer Andre Leu delves into a wealth of respected scientific journals to present the peer-reviewed evidence that proves the claims of chemical companies and pesticide regulators are not all they seem. Leu translates technical jargon into layman s terms to break down the five most-repeated myths about pesticide safety, refuting them using scientific data. The pesticide industry argues that agriculture, and the global population itself, cannot survive without its products, but Leu warns that we are at risk unless we break free of their toxic hold and turn to more natural methods of pest and weed regulation. Andre Leu is the president of the International Federation of Organic Agricultural Movements (IFOAM), the world umbrella body for the organic sector. IFOAM has about 800 member organizations in 120 countries. Its goal is the worldwide adoption of ecologically, socially, and economically sound systems based on the principles of organic agriculture. Andre has over forty years of experience in all areas of organic agriculture, including growing, pest control, weed management, marketing, post-harvest, transport, grower organizations, developing new crops, and education in Australia and in many other countries. He has an extensive knowledge of farming and environmental systems across Asia, Europe, the Americas, and Africa from forty years of visiting and working in these countries. He has written and been published extensively in magazines, newspapers, journals, websites, and other media on many areas of organic agriculture, including climate change, the environment, and the health benefits of organic agronomy. Andre and his wife own an agroecological organic tropical fruit orchard in Daintree, Queensland, Australia, that supplies quality-controlled fruit to a range of markets from local to international.
