I see your couple of links one of which referenced a far healthier country than ours and raise you 18,999,998:

we live in the USA???



US life expectancy over a 20-year period, 1987-2007, continued to rise in absolute terms, up 4.3 years for men and 2.4 years for women, in large part because of declining rates of smoking and improvements in medical technology. But the United States lagged behind other industrialized countries, falling from 20th in the world in terms of life expectancy in 1987 to 37th in 2007.

that video is about Nitrogen and phosphorous from fertilizer not about pesticides and the water in those areas eventually return to normal....


You are right it as about the fert not the pesticides. Although other recent studies are showing the level of the pesticide are also causing deaths on a measurable scale as well. The fact it returns to normal means nothing . It just happens now a few times a year during the rainy season where ever there is a major watershed that drains into the ocean. A little off topic ...back to the discussion :)

Chemical fertilizers are just as bad as pesticides regardless.

Life expectancy really has nothing to do with pesticides helping us rather than medical science and the world actually regulating deadly pesticides to increase life expectancy free of mutation and disease as a result of ingesting these horrible toxins.

I already gave a link last page, all you have to do is click "Canada".. it easily refutes your assertion, verbatim, that parents are expected to outlive their children.

I also notice in your Google search you made sure to put in "decline", showing that you clearly had an interest only in looking for what you wanted to read that complied with your pre-existing belief, not looking for actual answers. This is just awful attempts at propaganda.

Regardless of who is right, (and we can both post links until we're blue ion the face, nevermind that none of your links appear to look past the present - "clicking Canada" only showed data to 2009) average life expectancy is clearly not not the only reason to use natural products. Also every article you posted mentions that any gains being made are solely due to medical science. Not diet. Imagine how long we could be living if we had healthier farming/food practices!

So no one...organic supporter, or conventional (pesticide) supporter, knows what chemicals are used as the main ingredient for pesticides? How about Wine? What do they use on them grapes?
