Let’s cut through the hype about pesticides:
Myth 1: “Everything is regulated.”
In reality, very little is regulated. Very few pesticides have been tested and when they are, they are tested individually. In reality, multiple pesticides are usually used at once yet testing in this manner doesn’t exist.
Myth 2: “Just a little is used.”
Actually, quite a lot is used. But the quantity is not the worst problem. Many pesticides mimic our hormones. Just as tiny amounts of hormones have powerful effects on many body functions (like growth & reproduction), tiny amounts of some pesticides are known to have very toxic effects like developmental deformities or brain cell death.
