Newly-elected environmental rapporteur: a supermarket shelf where nerve poison needs to get off

MF and Environmental Rapporteur Mai Villadsen (Enhedslisten)

debate: Oranges, rice and coriander. Immediately put completely ordinary and healthy food on the shelves of the supermarket, smoke in the shopping basket, and then sell it on the plate in the family home. However, a certain dose of nerve agent can also be included in the curve. Many foods contain pesticide residues that kill rif. The poison rif works by attacking the nervous system and was developed as a nerve gas during the Second World War. Later, the drug was put on the market by an American company as an insecticide. The substance was banned in Denmark from producing food in Denmark in 2011, but we still import bulk food produced with poisonous rif. The substance is still allowed to be used in many EU countries and countries outside the EU. For example, there are residues of the substance in every two-thirds of conventionally produced oranges sold in Denmark.

The poisoning of rif is so widespread that researchers have measured the degradation products of the poisoning of rif in the urine of almost all Danes tested. I think that when researchers tell us at the same time, this substance will not only attack the nervous system of insects (the substance is designed to grow food), but also this residue in food will also affect the substance (especially children and Fetus), we should take it very seriously. brain. Researchers suspect that this drug can cause attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, autism and lower IQ, and said that this drug may be so toxic that pregnant women and children cannot take it harmlessly and should stop us. Think about it. Like the guinea pigs we are doing, chemical experiments on populations are crazy.

The new minister must handle this

The Danish Veterinary and Food Administration conducts nearly 2,000 inspections every year on hundreds of thousands of trucks, airplanes and ships carrying fruits and vegetables that arrive in Denmark. In this regard, the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration inspects such things as poisonous rif. A study conducted by Danwatch It shows that during the period 2016-2018, 16 poisoning deaths exceeding the limit were registered, but only one case was that the authorities imposed fines on poisoning deaths that exceeded the limit. An importer of Horsens was found in the coriander from Laos, and the fine was only DKK 7,500. Other findings above the limit did not result in bans or fines from other importers.

We have not imposed sanctions on prohibiting the detection of highly hazardous substances exceeding the limit in food. We believe that this is deeply worrying in the “Unified List”. I will appoint a new minister to handle this matter. This completely undermines the credibility of our control system, that is, a discovery that exceeds the limit will not lead to sanctions or food removal, and then directly gamble for people’s health. Part of the reason may be that the results of the inspection will not be available until the food is resold and eaten a long time ago, but the inspection system itself is not good enough. But I also believe that the new minister must consider whether the import of food containing neurotoxin residues continues to be legal. This food is banned in Denmark, and recognized researchers believe that it is not suitable for human food due to its impact on humans. The brain development of fetuses and children.

“The fact is that we have not imposed sanctions on prohibiting the detection of highly hazardous substances exceeding the limit in food. We believe that this is deeply worrying in the “Unified List”. I hope the new minister will deal with this matter.”

We want an import ban

In addition to the struggle to implement a comprehensive ban in all countries within the EU, we believe in the “Uniform List” that the new Danish Minister of the Environment must impose an import ban on goods produced with poisoned rif. Because even if the EU fully implements the ban, there will still be food imported from other countries outside the EU, and the poison continues is still used as the poison rif and has been sold in more than 100 countries.

“The new Danish Minister of the Environment must impose an import ban on goods produced with poisoned rif”

Environmental Rapporteur Mai Villadsen, unified list

In the “Uniform List”, we believe that, for example, when a pesticide that is illegal in Denmark and is suspected of causing fetal and child ADHD, autism, and lower IQ is found in almost one third of regular citrus fruits in supermarkets, It must intervene. And it was found in almost all Danes. We cannot ignore this at all.

Some supermarkets have even tested the toxic rif content of their fruits and vegetables and set a limit far below the official limit. For example, the limit set by COOP is half of the official limit. We think this is commendable in the “Uniform List”, but it is also a strong signal that the authorities’ “control and official limits” are far from the reasonable views of citizens and the retail industry.

We believe that we should take the warnings of researchers seriously and listen to them when they say that setting a lower limit is meaningless, because the toxic substances we are dealing with can affect brain development even at the lowest doses. Therefore, we believe that Denmark should-while we are working towards a total ban on the EU-impose an import ban on goods produced using poisonous rif. Of course, we should not put oranges with nerve agents on supermarket shelves. I look forward to discussing with the new Minister of the Environment.
