There are a number of chronic and acute health effects from pesticide exposure. Acute exposures may result in difficulty breathing, nausea and vomiting, headaches, dizziness, rashes, diarrhea and stomach pain. Long term health effects may include cancers, asthma, birth defects, learning disabilities and hormonal disruption.
Pesticides may be present on surfaces, in our water, in food products and in the air we breathe. Children are more susceptible to pesticide exposure than adults for a number of reasons, including:
Their bodies are still developing
They eat and drink more per pound of body weight
They touch many items and put their hands in their mouths
Have more skin surface area relative to their body weight
Breathe more air per pound of body weight
In recent years a number of pesticides have been marketed to consumers as organic, green and natural. Whenever a safer pesticide can be used it will benefit the environment and people, but many of these products may still harbor significant health hazards.
LA Testing, an affiliate of EMSL Analytical, provides pesticide testing services for the general public, industry and public health agencies. Pesticide use needs to be considered carefully to balance the benefits versus the health risks to people and damage to the environment, reported Ben Sublasky, National Director of Client Services for LA Testing and EMSL Analytical. LA Testing has a long tradition of helping to protect people, pets and the environment from the dangers associated with pesticide exposure.
