The local Lake Chelan newspaper ran this article about the high cancer rates in Manson from historical pesticide use: http://lakechelanmirror.com/
This is a pretty edgy article for a small town newspaper to run, in my opinion. You usually don’t see much controversy, especially surrounding anything relating to the apple or orchard industry, historical or present. It’s hard not to step on toes with the locals. Kudos to this small town paper for talking about it.
It started with Lead Arsenate in the first half of the 1900’s, and it continues today in 2016 with a new generation of toxic pesticides. Let’s just stop this madness.
