Effects of
Pesticides of
  Humans

What is Pesticides?
•   If it has the suffix –cide in it, then you know it's about killing
    something. Pesticides are designed to kill
    insects, fungus, bacteria and other things that feed on
    crops, are vectors for disease, nuisances, and things that
    destroy property. Farming is big business. And some of the
    farming companies are bottom–line entities in business to
    make money at any cost. Pesticides and genetically modified
    organisms are how they insure that they will get the crop yield
    they demand every season, no matter how it hurts the
    environment or the consumers.
•   Two types of pesticides are biological and chemical. Biological
    pesticides can be developed using fungi, bacteria and other
    organically present substances. Some biological pesticides are
    microorganisms that, without any manipulation, demonstrate
    natural effectiveness in targeted pest control. These generally
    aren't toxic to humans or animals and don't leave a persistent
    residue.
What is Pesticides?
•   The greatest risk to our environment and our health comes
    from the chemical pesticides. In spite of the dangers, the
    government maintains its approval of the use of toxic chemicals
    to make pesticides. And science is constantly developing
    variations of poisons.
•   Two classes are broad-spectrum and narrow-spectrum
    pesticides. Broad-spectrum pesticides kill many kinds of
    pests, while narrow-spectrum pesticides do just the opposite.
    Narrow-spectrum pesticides are developed to kill specific
    organism types. Examples are algicides for algai, avicides for
    birds, fungicides for fungi and oomycetes (also called water
    molds, they use surface water including preciptiation on
    plants, to move around). Most pesticides kill pests directly on
    contact. Systemic pesticides work differently. They penetrate to
    the inside of a plant traveling along its absorption path.
•   These poisons work by poisoning the pollen and nectar of
    flowers and this can kill needed pollinators like butterflies and
    bees.
Shocking Facts
•   Pesticides are a major threat to bees. The systemic poisoning
    of flowers has killed scores of bees.
•   We're simply losing too many of them. The bees and
    butterflies among others are pollinators and they represent a
    natural tour de force in perpetuating plant cycles and
    evolution.
•   You see, they do cross pollination naturally. More than 25% of
    the bee colonies died in winter 2006/07. That translates to a
    loss of tens of billions of bees.
•   And it's estimated that this loss will negatively impact the
    agricultural economy to the tune of $8 to $12 billion.
Who's at Risk for Exposure to Pesticides?

• Farmers and their families and other persons who use
  chemical pesticides regularly are at greatest risk for
  achieving toxic levels in their bodies. The danger is
  spread out to larger areas, as the pesticides:
    –   Are carried on the wind
    –   Leave residues on produce
    –   Remain inside produce and animals
    –   Run off into open water, contaminating public water supply as well
        as fish and other seafood
• Anyone who uses pesticides or is present when
  pesticides are sprayed is at risk for dangerous exposure.
  The pesticides can enter the body through
  skin, eyes, mouth and nose.
What are the Dangers from Pesticides Exposure?
•   Pesticides can be toxic to humans and lower animals. It can take a
    small amount of some toxins to kill. And other toxins that are
    slower acting, may take a long time to cause harm to the human
    body.
•   Pesticide production can be dangerous, too. One disaster at a
    pesticide manufacturing plant was in Bhopal, India. The plant
    accidentally released 40 tons of an intermediate chemical gas,
    methyl isocyanate, used to produce some pesticides. In that
    disaster, nearly 3,000 people were killed immediately, overall
    approximately 15,000 deaths occurred. Today nearly 100,000
    people suffer from mild to severe permanent damage as a result of
    that disaster.¹
•   In China, it's estimated that 500,000 people suffer pesticide
    poisoning annually, and some 500 of them die.²
•   Children seem to be greatly susceptible to the toxic effects of
    pesticides. The Natural Resource Defense Council has collected
    data which recorded higher incidence of childhood leukemia, brain
    cancer and birth defects. These results correlated with early
    exposure to pesticides.³
Doctor Group's Comment:
“Neurotoxins are any substances that can cause disruption to the
neurological system including the brain. Many neurotoxins are
organophosphates, and several are currently approved and being
used to make pesticides.
What are the Dangers from Pesticides Exposure?
•    Even just using pesticides in amounts within regulation, studies
     have revealed neurotoxins can do serious damage during
     development. Researchers report the dangers of pesticides can
     start as early as fetal stages of life. The Pesticides entry at
     Wikipedia.org lists some of the results that have been recorded in
     recent years including:
•    Fetuses, (pre-birth babies), may suffer from exposure and exhibit
     behavioral problems, growth issues
•    Lower cognitive scores, fewer nerve cells and lower birth weight
•    A lower resistance to the toxic effects of pesticides
•    A greater risk (70% increase), for Parkinson's disease, even with
     low levels of pesticides
•    Can you believe the government approved the use of some
     organophosphates despite the occurrence of illnesses? It makes
     you wonder just who the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
     is working to protect.
What are the Dangers from Pesticides Exposure?
•    What you also need to understand is that toxins from pesticides
     can remain in the body and build up in the liver. And, even at
     "safe" levels your reactions can be mild to severe. High levels of
     exposure can be fatal.
•    How do you know if you're going to be ill? You don't; you just have
     to hope for the best.
•    How will you be affected? Well, you don't really know how you
     body will react to the toxins until it happens. Several factors
     determine how your body will react including your level of
     exposure, the type of chemical you ingest, and your individual
     resistance to the chemicals. Some people are unaffected or are
     mildly affected, while others become severely ill from similar levels
     of exposure.
What are the Dangers from Pesticides Exposure?

• Some possible reactions are:
  –   Fatigue
  –   Fatigue
  –   Skin Irritations
  –   Nausea
  –   Vomiting
  –   Breathing Problems
  –   Brain Disorders
  –   Blood Disorders
  –   Liver & Kidney Damage
  –   Reproductive Damage
  –   Cancer
  –   Death
That Gives You and Your Family Every
    Reason to Move on to Organic
Vegetables, Fruits, Groceries and Food..

Effects of pesticides of humans

  • 1. Effects of Pesticides of Humans Organic Garden Pvt. Ltd
  • 2. What is Pesticides? • If it has the suffix –cide in it, then you know it's about killing something. Pesticides are designed to kill insects, fungus, bacteria and other things that feed on crops, are vectors for disease, nuisances, and things that destroy property. Farming is big business. And some of the farming companies are bottom–line entities in business to make money at any cost. Pesticides and genetically modified organisms are how they insure that they will get the crop yield they demand every season, no matter how it hurts the environment or the consumers. • Two types of pesticides are biological and chemical. Biological pesticides can be developed using fungi, bacteria and other organically present substances. Some biological pesticides are microorganisms that, without any manipulation, demonstrate natural effectiveness in targeted pest control. These generally aren't toxic to humans or animals and don't leave a persistent residue.
  • 3. What is Pesticides? • The greatest risk to our environment and our health comes from the chemical pesticides. In spite of the dangers, the government maintains its approval of the use of toxic chemicals to make pesticides. And science is constantly developing variations of poisons. • Two classes are broad-spectrum and narrow-spectrum pesticides. Broad-spectrum pesticides kill many kinds of pests, while narrow-spectrum pesticides do just the opposite. Narrow-spectrum pesticides are developed to kill specific organism types. Examples are algicides for algai, avicides for birds, fungicides for fungi and oomycetes (also called water molds, they use surface water including preciptiation on plants, to move around). Most pesticides kill pests directly on contact. Systemic pesticides work differently. They penetrate to the inside of a plant traveling along its absorption path. • These poisons work by poisoning the pollen and nectar of flowers and this can kill needed pollinators like butterflies and bees.
  • 4. Shocking Facts • Pesticides are a major threat to bees. The systemic poisoning of flowers has killed scores of bees. • We're simply losing too many of them. The bees and butterflies among others are pollinators and they represent a natural tour de force in perpetuating plant cycles and evolution. • You see, they do cross pollination naturally. More than 25% of the bee colonies died in winter 2006/07. That translates to a loss of tens of billions of bees. • And it's estimated that this loss will negatively impact the agricultural economy to the tune of $8 to $12 billion.
  • 5. Who's at Risk for Exposure to Pesticides? • Farmers and their families and other persons who use chemical pesticides regularly are at greatest risk for achieving toxic levels in their bodies. The danger is spread out to larger areas, as the pesticides: – Are carried on the wind – Leave residues on produce – Remain inside produce and animals – Run off into open water, contaminating public water supply as well as fish and other seafood • Anyone who uses pesticides or is present when pesticides are sprayed is at risk for dangerous exposure. The pesticides can enter the body through skin, eyes, mouth and nose.
  • 6. What are the Dangers from Pesticides Exposure? • Pesticides can be toxic to humans and lower animals. It can take a small amount of some toxins to kill. And other toxins that are slower acting, may take a long time to cause harm to the human body. • Pesticide production can be dangerous, too. One disaster at a pesticide manufacturing plant was in Bhopal, India. The plant accidentally released 40 tons of an intermediate chemical gas, methyl isocyanate, used to produce some pesticides. In that disaster, nearly 3,000 people were killed immediately, overall approximately 15,000 deaths occurred. Today nearly 100,000 people suffer from mild to severe permanent damage as a result of that disaster.¹ • In China, it's estimated that 500,000 people suffer pesticide poisoning annually, and some 500 of them die.² • Children seem to be greatly susceptible to the toxic effects of pesticides. The Natural Resource Defense Council has collected data which recorded higher incidence of childhood leukemia, brain cancer and birth defects. These results correlated with early exposure to pesticides.³
  • 7. Doctor Group's Comment: “Neurotoxins are any substances that can cause disruption to the neurological system including the brain. Many neurotoxins are organophosphates, and several are currently approved and being used to make pesticides.
  • 8. What are the Dangers from Pesticides Exposure? • Even just using pesticides in amounts within regulation, studies have revealed neurotoxins can do serious damage during development. Researchers report the dangers of pesticides can start as early as fetal stages of life. The Pesticides entry at Wikipedia.org lists some of the results that have been recorded in recent years including: • Fetuses, (pre-birth babies), may suffer from exposure and exhibit behavioral problems, growth issues • Lower cognitive scores, fewer nerve cells and lower birth weight • A lower resistance to the toxic effects of pesticides • A greater risk (70% increase), for Parkinson's disease, even with low levels of pesticides • Can you believe the government approved the use of some organophosphates despite the occurrence of illnesses? It makes you wonder just who the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is working to protect.
  • 9. What are the Dangers from Pesticides Exposure? • What you also need to understand is that toxins from pesticides can remain in the body and build up in the liver. And, even at "safe" levels your reactions can be mild to severe. High levels of exposure can be fatal. • How do you know if you're going to be ill? You don't; you just have to hope for the best. • How will you be affected? Well, you don't really know how you body will react to the toxins until it happens. Several factors determine how your body will react including your level of exposure, the type of chemical you ingest, and your individual resistance to the chemicals. Some people are unaffected or are mildly affected, while others become severely ill from similar levels of exposure.
  • 10. What are the Dangers from Pesticides Exposure? • Some possible reactions are: – Fatigue – Fatigue – Skin Irritations – Nausea – Vomiting – Breathing Problems – Brain Disorders – Blood Disorders – Liver & Kidney Damage – Reproductive Damage – Cancer – Death
