by David Gutierrez, Natural News:

“Once again, what we have complained about for years was confirmed,” said Medardo Avila Vazquez of the University Network for Environment and Health (Reduas), “and especially what doctors say about the sprayed towns and areas affected by industrial agriculture. Cancer cases are multiplying as never before in areas with massive use of pesticides.”

Cancer has skyrocketed: The Provincial Tumour Registry and the Department of Statistics and Census analyzed data on cancer tumors and death rates between the years of 2004 and 2009.
