Welcome back to the Talk Story portion of our visit with André Leu, right here in Hawaii, speaking about Poisoning Our Children. If you haven’t yet listened to André’s main presentation, you can catch that right here. Most of the last half of this session had to be removed due to inaccuracies, erroneous claims and intentionally damaging statements made by a few attendees in an attempt to discredit our local producers and deflect from the subject at hand. Sadly, such trolling by people with no concern for or experience with human health has become commonplace at such events. This segment had to be removed so as not to spread false information about our producers.
Andre Leu is the Author of Poisoning our Children and the Myths of Safe Pesticides. He is International Director of Regeneration International, an organization that promotes food, farming and land use systems that regenerate and stabilise climate systems, the health of the planet and people, communities, culture and local economies, democracy and peace.
He was the President of IFOAM – Organics International, the world change agent and umbrella body for the organic sector. IFOAM – Organics International has around 850 member organisations in 127 countries.
