What Long-Term-Effect Studies have been done? None
People are asking have any long-term studies been done on the effects of the spray?
The answer is no.
And no, MAF is not having to move thousands of people out of the Painted Apple Moth zone when they spray.
Not any more, because MAF has refused to further evacuate many it was previously evacuating and many more have been turned down in spite of their severe health effects.
Many more evacuate themselves and their families at their own expense.
Many of these are people who have never had any preexisting conditions. Their symptoms now reoccur every time MAF sprays.
An independent health risk assessment carried out in 2002 ignored the findings of other international studies which found there were adverse effects associated with the spray.
And MAF offers a “free health service” but you will still have to pay all your own doctors’ bills, treatment and prescription costs.
It is run by a team of doctors, who regularly tell people their symptoms are “all in their minds”, although there are some who’ve admitted the spray is responsible.
Please feel free to phone the MAF Hotline – just don’t expect any answers or concern to be shown. Many have been hung up on, abused or given wrong information.

about the spraying. The campaign is obviously not working
and the sooner we stop it the better.
