On 14 August 2018 Fresh Fruit Portal reported:
Brazilian lawmakers have reportedly resurrected a 2002 bill that would severely reduce the role of government health and environment departments in authorizing new pesticides, the Los Angeles Times reported. A second bill would ban the sale of organic foods to supermarkets and other major retail outlets. Environmentalists and other opponents of the proposed changes say that deregulation would increase a range of health problems linked to pesticide exposure -- including cancer and infertility -- and contaminate soil and water.
Global Good News service views this news as the failure of modern government and environment systems.

The LA Times reported that the revival of the old legislation comes as a result of the increasing power of the ruralistas -- a faction of legislators who now hold a majority in Congress and are allied with Brazil's pro-business president, Michel Temer, and Big Agriculture, which is driving the country's economy.
