Toxic for all living organisms, used on 80% of agricultural land, SDHIs pesticides Inhibit an enzyme : the Succinate DeHydrogenase
SDHIs in pictures
SDHIs are recognized as highly toxic
You have to equip yourself like cosmonauts to use them
But SDHIs are generously spread in nature
For some, direct contact leads to death (worms, fish)
Slow impregnation causes death of bees and tumors in rodents
It is found in food, drinks and hair
But the financial market of the SDHIs is flourishing and still growing

Pollinis is fighting for the ban on “bee-killer” pesticides and for agriculture that respects the environment and biodiversity. The association works to restore a rich and healthy environment for wild pollinators, and acts to save local honeybees in natural environments where they have evolved for millennia. Pollinis has launched several petitions to stop the scandal of the SDHIs, it’s up to you to sign!
A group of volunteers without money, made up of about fifteen people, headed by the journalist Fabrice Nicolino, seized with the urgency of the disastrous situation caused by the use of pesticides, which organizes every 1st Friday of the month, a rally in front of town halls and has launched a national appeal that we invite you to sign urgently to stop this madness of pesticides
The scientists at the origin of the call concerning the dangers represented by the SDHIs (published in April 2018 in the newspaper Libération), Paule Bénit, PhD (Research Engineer IR2 INSERM, National Institute for Health and Medical Research) and Pierre Rustin, PhD (Research Director CE Emeritus at CNRS, National Center for Scientific Research), members of the Physiopathology and Mitochondrial Disease Therapy Team, of the Mixed Research Unit INSERM UMR 1141 (located at Robert Debré hospital in the 19th arrondissement of Paris), directed by Pierre Gressens, research director at INSERM and professor of fetal and neonatal neurology at King’s College in London.
Members of the CNRS (Malgorzata Rak, PhD, Research Fellow CR1, UMR 1141), INSERM (Judith Favier, PhD, Research Director DR2, UMR970 Cancerology, Georges-Pompidou European Hospital, Dominique Chrétien, PhD, Research Engineer IR2, UMR 1141); AP-HP (Public Assistance – Paris Hospitals; Anne-Paule Gimenez-Roqueplo, MD, PhD, Professor, Oncology, Georges-Pompidou European Hospital; UMR970; Manuel Schiff, MD, PhD, University Lecturer, Hospitaller Practitioner, UMR 1141) have joined the initial call to highlight the dangers of using SDHIs and calling for the suspension of their use under the precautionary principle..
