Center Unveils New Report Based on Internal EPA Data

WASHINGTON, July 31 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- According to a new Center for Public Integrity investigation, Perils of the New Pesticides (http://www.publicintegrity.org/investigations/pesticides), pyrethrins and pyrethroids were responsible for more than 26 percent of all major and moderate human incidents involving pesticides in the United States in 2007, up from just 15 percent in 1998 -- a 67 percent increase. This is based on an analysis of adverse reaction reports (http://www.publicintegrity.org/investigations/pesticides/pages/methodology ) filed with the Environmental Protection Agency by pesticide manufacturers.

As a result of the Center's investigation, the director of the EPA's Office of Pesticide Programs said the agency would begin a broad study of the human health effects of these chemicals this year.

"The alarming rise of pesticide-related incidents attributed to pyrethrin and pyrethroid affiliated products is a serious concern for the millions of households that use them," said Center Executive Director Bill Buzenberg. "The Center for Public Integrity uncovered this public safety issue through more than a dozen Freedom of Information Act requests and crunching the data. This should be basic public information if the EPA were doing its job."

Data from the American Association of Poison Control Centers reveals a similar trend that supports the EPA data analyzed by the Center. The number of reported pyrethrin and pyrethroid incidents to poison centers across the country jumped from 16,000 in 1998 to more than 26,000 in 2006, a 63 percent
