Pesticides

Pesticides are substances that prevent, destroy, repel, or reduce the severity of pests. Pesticides are common chemicals found in thousands of household and industrial products, including cosmetics and personal care products. Different types of pesticides can effect your health in different ways. Some pesticides are carcinogens, known to cause cancer. Some can cause birth defects. Some affect the nervous system. Some pesticides are endocrine disruptors and affect the body's hormones and endocrine system. Some may irritate the skin and eyes. The amount of a pesticide you are exposed to is as important as how toxic the pesticide is.
