Pesticides are chemicals used in agriculture to protect crops against insects, fungi, weeds and other pests. But pesticides are also potentially toxic to humans. Several studies have examined the link between pesticides and various health issues, including cancer: numerous studies have investigated the correlation between pesticides and types of cancers. The research results have found links between some pesticide exposure and childhood leukemia, brain cancer, and lymphoma, as well as associations with breast cancer. Studies have also investigated links between pesticides and prostate, pancreas and liver cancer, as well as increased risk of melanoma. Neurodevelopmental issues: Pesticide exposure prenatally and in children has been investigated as a source of behavioral problems, neurodevelopmental delays and impaired motor skills. Hormone disruption: Some chemicals in pesticides can disrupt chemicals such as estrogens, thyroid and androgens, which may impact reproduction and fertility. Neurological: Farmers exposed to certain pesticides have a 70 percent higher risk of developing Parkinson's disease. Skin, eye and lung issues: Like other chemicals, pesticides can result in irritation for some people depending on how much they are exposed.
