The Birds and Bees Protection Act Would Bring Costly 'Derogation Drama' to New York
Governor Hochul should stand up for farmers and consumers and veto the bill

June 8, 2023  •  American Council on Science & Health

The state of New York is on the brink of a big mistake by banning a pesticide that is critical for many farmers. Legislators, tired of being hassled by misguided environmental activists, are negotiating the final wording of the inaptly named "Birds and Bees Protection Act," which would prevent growers from accessing neonicotinoids, aka "neonics," a commonly used class of insecticides considered one of the world's environmentally safest.

EPA Shows Again It's the Worst Regulatory Agency in the History of the World
Their stock in trade is shoddy science, dishonesty, and pandering to activists.

RSV vaccine breakthrough prevents respiratory infections that pose serious hazards to older adults
The virus leads to approximately 60,000-120,000 hospitalizations and 6,000-10,000 deaths in people over 65 yearly in the U.S.

It is not every day that drug development results in a breakthrough with the potential to eliminate an often serious and sometimes fatal disease, but one of those days occurred earlier this month.

Earlier this month, the FDA approved a vaccine against respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) for the prevention of lower respiratory tract disease caused by the virus in individuals 60 years of age and older. It is the first RSV vaccine to gain approval anywhere in the world. It was a long haul and is a hugely important development.
