Pesticides include inert ingredients which may be carcinogenic or toxic. Listed below are the effects on human health:
increased risk of leukemia
cancers (lung, brain, testicular, lymphoma)
increase in spontaneous abortions
greater genetic damage
liver and pancreatic damage
disturbances to immune systems (asthma/allergies)
increases in stillbirths
decreased sperm counts
Pesticides are also dangerous to other organisms. Birds die after consuming granular pesticides. Other animals may develop:
abnormal thyroid function
decreased hatching success
demasculinization and feminization of males
alteration of immune function
Because only 5% of pesticides actually reach target weeds, their danger cannot be underestimated.
