In general, a pesticide is a chemical or a biological agent such as a virus, bacterium, antimicrobial, or disinfectant that deters, incapacitates, kills, pests.

human health and the environment. Pesticides are ubiquitous in the environment and most are synthetic. There is growing concern about children's exposure to pesticides and their special susceptibility. Children are not little adults, and may have higher exposures and greater. significantly increased the concentration of pesticides in food and in our environment, with associated negative effects on human health. Annually there are dozens of million cases of pesticide poisonings worldwide (Richter, ). Moreover, it is now better understood that pesticides have significant.   Pesticides residues have also been detected in human breast milk samples, and there are concerns about prenatal exposure and health effects in children (13, 44–46). This current review aims at highlighting the urgent need for a new concept in agriculture involving a drastic reduction in the use of chemical by: What is ecotoxicology? Pesticides and other contaminants that get into the natural environment can affect wild plants and animals. The science of studying these effects is called ecotoxicology. 1 Ecotoxicology is a mix of ecology, toxicology, physiology, analytical chemistry, molecular biology, and mathematics. Ecotoxicology looks at the impacts of contaminants including pesticides on.
