This Sunday that past the Poughkeepsie Journal featured a front page article criticizing the federal governments study that spraying pesticides in our backyards is not effective against ticks.They quoted a local official as saying "Our children deserve to be protected in our backyards"
The use of pesticides is one of the direct causes of the high rate of cancer in the U.S. The companies like Monsanto do a good enough job of lobbying the use of pesticides and herbicides.They do not need help from the Poughkeepsie Journal.
Our son Adam has had Lyme as a young child. The answer is in education and awareness of how to deal and look for ticks, not to give children cancer in the backyard.
Listen to the song my son Adam sings with his Mom Dassi, sister Noga and brother Zohar(Tioronda Kids). I hope the Poughkeepsie Journal gets it. Tioronda Kids sing "Price Tag" at Ecofest 2013 at Times Square. Send it to your friends!!
