Pesticide Poisoning

Agriculture chemicals, otherwise referred to as “agrochemicals,” are a large family of chemicals that cover many pest issues associated with farming. Pesticides are designed to control pests, but they can also be toxic to desirable plants and animals, including humans. The three diverse types of pesticide poisoning include the following and among them, the first is single and short-term which is very high level of exposure that can be experienced by individuals who commit suicide, as well as pesticide formulators. The second is long-term high-level exposure, which can occur in pesticide manufacturers and formulators. The third is long-term low-level exposure in which individuals are exposed to sources such as pesticide residues in food as well as contact with pesticide residues of various mediums like air, water, soil, sediment, food materials, plants and animals.
