Have You Been To Mosquito Lagoon Lately?
This week on One Cell One Light Radio, Dr. Hildy™ welcomes returning guest, Rosalind Peterson, of California Sky Watch and the Agriculture Defense Coalition, to discuss two different, but none-less important topics.
In the first hour of the show, Dr. Hildy and Rosalind will discuss the United States Air Force’s involvement with mosquito pesticide spraying in Miami-Dade County in South Florida. Just two weeks ago, Air Force crews in C-130 cargo planes flew over the county during the final two daylight hours before sunset and up to 30 minutes after sunset. The planes sprayed out the pesticide Dibromo, sometimes flying as low as 150 feet from the ground. But Dibromo compounds are on the California list of chemicals known to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity.
Dibromo is the brand name of the insecticide Naled, in the organophosphate pesticide family that is commonly used to kill adult (flying) mosquitoes. It has been registered for use in the U.S. since 1959. AMVAC Chemical Corporation has been the major manufacturer of NALED since 1998. The No Spray Coalition and other organizations, such as the ones that Ms. Peterson belongs to, bring up the question: why is a branch of the armed services assisting in spraying a substance that is known to be toxic in one of the most heavily populated areas of the country?
In the second hour, the discussion will turn to a toxic product that is currently being marketed to children as a toy. Insta-Snow, sold by Be Amazing Toys, is advertised on their website as such: “Explore the science of superabsorbent polymers with an amazing, non-toxic powder that erupts into an amazingly realistic drift of “snow” when you add water.”
Yet, on the package itself, one of the ingredients listed is Sodium Polyacrylate, which has been noted by the California EPA as a pesticide and industrial chemical. This product was featured on Ellen Degeneres’ talk show, brought on by guest Steve Spangler, a noted educator of children in the world of science, and had some surprising results. The toxic ingredients in Be Amazing products are similar to those used in Pampers Dry Max Diapers – see links below.Join Dr. Hildy and her guest Rosalind Peterson as they discuss toxic products that are being sprayed in the air and sold to children on One Cell, One Light Radio!
