What is Pesticides ?
Pesticide ingestion and inhalation can damage internal organs, cause cancer, and eventually even cause death. The World Health Organization estimates that one-half of the ground and well water in the U.S. is contaminated with pesticides, resulting in 20,000 deaths each year.

Why Should I Worry ?
Pesticides may cause acute and delayed health effects in those who are exposed. Pesticide exposure can cause a variety of adverse health effects, ranging from simple irritation of the skin and eyes to more severe effects such as affecting the nervous system, mimicking hormones causing reproductive problems, and also causing cancer. A 2007 systematic review found that “most studies on non-Hodgkin lymphoma and leukemia showed positive associations with pesticide exposure”. Strong evidence also exists for other negative outcomes from pesticide exposure including neurological, birth defects, fetal death,and neuro developmental disorder.
