New Report Distorts Truth About Pesticides
Date:8/1/2008

ted more than ten hours of interview time with nationally recognized scientific and medical experts in the area of pyrethrins, pyrethroids and incidence reporting with the Center for Public Integrity. One of these experts has been involved with the EPA's reporting structure for incident data since its inception. That expert cautioned the author against drawing conclusions from the dataset that simply could not be supported from a scientific and medical basis given its inherent limitations.

"Clearly, the CPI chose not to invest the time and energy necessary to conduct a thorough analysis, and the result is a seriously flawed report that merely serves to spread misinformation about products that have served consumers well for decades," said Cathcart. "Because of their superior safety profile, pyrethrins and pyrethroids have been the replacement ingredients of choice following the removal of chlorpyrifos and other organophosphates from the marketplace. Pyrethrins and pyrethroids have helped to provide public health benefits by controlling pests that can transmit to humans diseases such as Lyme disease and West Nile virus."
