How dangerous are pesticides?

How dangerous are pesticides? Based on information from hospital surveys, an estimated 20,000o people receive emergency care annually for actual or suspected pesticide poisoning, and approximately 10% are admitted to the hospital. Each year 20 -40 die of acute pesticide poisoning in the United States. We still allow pesticides to be sprayed in our homes, in our businesses and in our schools. Pesticide spraying is not about public safety, it is about profit. We also still use Roundup in many areas and it is known to be toxic. There are 42,700 lawsuits regarding the damage Roundup can do as of Oct., 2019, and Trump’s Environmental Destruction Agency says it is safe. It used to be the Environmental Protection Agency.

This weekend I will be contacting many of the major religions around the world and make sure they know about the hazards of pesticides and ask them to tell all of their followers to avoid it. Greta Thunberg is absolutely correct in that we are destroying the world, and pesticides are a major part of that destruction.

There are safe and effective ways to control almost all pests and weeds and nobody needs to be exposed to toxic pesticides. We need to do a lot to help save the world and one thing is we need to get rid of Trump and restore sanity to what used to be the Environmental Protection Agency.

 

About askthebugman

I have been in the pest management industry for over 40 years. In that time I have used almost every pesticide available to control so-called “pests”. With this experience, I have learned over the years that the pesticides we use are far more dangerous than the pests we are trying to control. As a result, it has become a passion for me to improve the quality of life for humans and the planet, by assisting people to not only become more educated and aware of their environment – but also by learning to manage their home and business with a sustainable and healthier approach to tending to unwanted infestations of bugs.
