Pesticides in Paradise: Hawai‘i’s Health & Environment at Risk

Author:

The chemical industry’s experimentation with pesticide-promoting genetically engineered (GE) crops increasingly threaten Hawai‘i’s public health, biodiversity and food independence. To curb these threats and raise public awareness about this issue, HCFS has published the groundbreaking, in-depth report Pesticides in Paradise: Hawai‘i’s Health and Environment at Risk.

Thanks to environmental reporter Wes Thomas for this story.  I’ve read this report and some of the findings are shocking and most disturbing.  Download the report and reach your own conclusions.  In a related topic,  "West Hawaii Today" reporter Nancy Cook Lauer has an intriguing report on the front page of the "Hawaii Tribune-Herald" regarding community pressure to ban the use of the herbicide Roundup–one of the dangerous chemicals cited in the HCFS Pesticide Report.  Interesting and unsettling story.
