How Are People Exposed To Pesticide Poisoning?
Farm workers are often exposed to pesticides on a regular basis, as are pesticide plant employees. In addition, people can encounter these toxic chemicals in a variety of other ways, from eating contaminated fruits and vegetables to breathing in or absorbing weed killer from somebody’s yard.
What Are The Dangers And Side Effects?
Pesticide exposure can have mild effects (such as causing temporary eye irritation) or very serious effects (such as causing a form of leukemia), depending on the circumstances. In addition, a pregnant woman who is exposed to high levels of pesticides is at particular risk for having a baby born with serious birth defects. These defects may include:
- Missing eyes, ears or nose
- Deformed limbs
- Underdeveloped jaws
- Lack of sex organs
- Neural tube or heart defects
