Food is essential to our daily life. Both producers and consumers want food to be safe. However, in order to improve food production, pesticide / herbicide is widely used in agriculture. Pesticide residues on crops, vegetables and fruits are harmful to our health, such as, causing decline in human immunity; damaging liver and kidney; inducing anemia, peeling, and even leukemia. It can also cause infertility in women or deformities in fetuses, and may even harm the growth and development of the child before the age of 16.
