Synthetic Pesticides and how they effect you

Synthetic pesticides

Synthetic pesticides are man-made chemicals that are used in agriculture to kill insects and pests that would otherwise destroy agriculture crops. The main classes consist of organochlorines, organophosphates, carbamates, and pyrethroids. Exposure to pesticides can cause acute (short term) or chronic (long term) effects on animals and humans, especially in the reproductive, endocrine, and central nervous systems.
