Effects of pesticides on man

It has been estimated that pesticides poisoning accounts for about 3% of all accidental poisoning by chemicals .such accidence can be to the applicators of pesticides and can come through during spraying of pesticides or other treatment operations other types accident it’s may involves large numbers of people are those due to unsafe packing and leakage of pesticides in storage and transport on a number of occasions food as been contaminated in these way.


Other accident have occurred when insecticides that have been found to be effective against one type of pest have been incorrectly used for treatment against others. In the tropics containers that have contained pesticides concentrates are attractive for house hold use. If such containers are used for carrying of cookingconsumables, poisoning may occurs to workers who isan increased and convenient means of sucide. Since relatively small quantities of such chemicals are usually sufficient to kill human being pesticides residue or there metabolities in food could after mans health acute over exposure to pesticides can lead to acute effects on human beings and even death prolonged exposure to some organo chlorine insecticides can lead concentration of pesticides in tissues prolonged organomercuruals may causes irreparable brain damage and hexachlorobenzeneexposure may cause severe skin infections. The nematicide dibromo chloropropanecan interfere with reproductive functions and other pesticides can at high exposure cause tetra genic effects.
