Pesticide 'safe' according to industry funded authority

Despite being linked to birth and developmental abnormalities as well as deaths, the pesticide Endosulfan is okay for restricted use, according to the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority's latest advice (as written up in today's Sydney Morning Herald in 'Pesticide "safe", says industry-funded body', News section, page 11, July 18-19 2009).

Endosulfan has been banned in over 60 countries, but India, Australia and the US still permit its use.

Something causes autism.
