The precautionary principle must of course also be applied when deciding on whether, and if so how, such products should be released. But to have as an overarching principle the phasing out of pesticides altogether makes no sense. One might as well propose the phasing out of all medicines – their active ingredients are almost invariably liable to have some harmful effects in certain circumstances. All decisions on new products must strike a balance between efficacy and cost on the one hand and potential risks on the other, and it is vital to avoid the regulators being unduly influenced by those standing to benefit from their approving a product. Life requires compromises and blanket bans are inappropriate. Life itself is a fatal condition, and we can and should only seek to make our end somewhat less imminent or painful, and in so doing to avoid irreversible harm to the environment.
