    In February 1989, Ed Bradley and his colleagues at “60 Minutes” scared the wits out of American parents by telling them that children were at risk of developing cancer as a result of exposure to an agricultural chemical called Alar. Cameras transmitted frightening images of children in cancer wards. Self-appointed environmentalists from the Natural Resources Defense Council appeared to tell us that Alar was a “cancer causing agent” and that since children drank a considerable amount of apple juice for their size, the cancer risks of Alar were “intolerable.” Panic ensued across the land. Schools discarded apple products. The apple industry, particularly in the northwestern portions of the United States, was devastated.

    Scientists from around the world emerged to say that Alar, when used in its regulated approved form as it was in 1989, never posed a cancer or other health risk to children or adults. The World Health Organization, American Medical Association, American Council on Science and Health and the physician who was Surgeon General at the time of the Alar incident, Dr. C. Everett Koop, all went on record as saying that the CBS inspired Alar-scare had no scientific basis whatsoever. Many other studies have shown that organically-grown produce does indeed have a higher rate of bacterial contamination than conventionally-grown produce. Even the feds are calling his investigation “irresponsible” and “misleading”. Dr. Oz did the testing in an irresponsible and unreliable fashion, for example combining the sum total of arsenic from organic and inorganic apple juice. What consumers need to know is that there are two kinds of arsenic and that the organic arsenic is harmless. Did you know there is a chemical in celery called 8-MOP (8-Methoxysauraline) that’s carcinogenic in rodent metabolism, there’s also a similar carcinogen in broccoli that’s 5 percent of it’s mass but it’s safe for us because it’s not the chemical it’s the dosage that makes it bad for you. Far from killing us, synthetic chemicals are actually improving our quality of life and in nature there is an entire array of various chemicals that in general are very complicated and perfectly natural. Nature is all about chemistry and in some cases they involve chemicals not good for anyone or anything.
