‘Pesticides in Paradise’ report set to be released in June

LIHUE ­— Hawaii Center for Food Safety is set to release “Pesticides in Paradise: Hawaii’s Health and Environment at Risk,” a report that the center says establishes the relationship between pesticide use, genetically engineered field test sites and public health risks in Hawaii.

“Pesticides in Paradise” delivers a comprehensive review of published scientific and medical research examining the threats pesticides used in Hawaii pose to public health, especially the risk to pregnant women and young children, the Hawaii Center for Food Safety Action Fund stated in a press release announcing the report.

HCFSAF is a non-partisan, not-for-profit, committee that engages in education and electoral activities, including legislative advocacy, candidate endorsing, voter education and grassroots organizing.

An abridged report is available now. A full report will be available in June
