However, for consumers
who are indirectly infected through contaminated agricultural products
with toxic residue in them. Even if these contaminants
are only consumed at a low rate, a frequent dose can lead to accumulations
and causing chronic problems and affecting the various functions
inside the body like: - Affecting the nervous
system, the majority of pesticides are hazardous to the brain and
- Affecting the organs inside the body, the bodys natural defensive
mechanism that get rids of poison is the liver, then the kidney.
A frequent dosage can make these organs work harder that can
- Affecting the immune system, some pesticides disrupt the function
of the immune systems, causing the weakening of the body that leads
to higher vulnerability of infection.
- Affecting the hormones in the body, directly affecting the Endocrine
gland, the organ directly responsible for producing hormones, thus
making the glands malfunctions that may cause sterility, reduction
in the production of sperm.
- Causing a chemical change and cell mutation in the body, this can
lead to the weakening of the body, sickness and cancer.
are dangerous and may even affect healthy consumers. Unfortunately,
babies or children that are not fully grown yet will be especially
prone to these toxic residues, even if the dosage is minimal; there
is even a risk of mutation. According to the Environmental Working
Group from the USA, the report from year 2516 suggests that Brain
Cancer and leukemia in American children below 14 years old shows
a rise in
33% and the overwhelming cause of death is cancer. Research also
shows that the level of toxic residue in 8 different infant food
contaminated up to 52% with 16 identified chemicals. Most of the
food being tested contains 2 types of toxic in one sample, and
most of the
toxic found in the 16 chemicals are mostly Neurotoxins. This includes
Phosphate and Carbanate.
The level of toxicity is believed to be
safe for adults but unsafe for children and babies. This is because
safety level for consumption has been set to 14 years and older
(disregarding educational levels). In addition, the affect of having
been in contact
with 2 toxics in one food will cause the accumulation of poison
or a catalyst effect, boosting the toxicity level.
A report from
at the Research Center in New Orleans found that the combination
of the two toxins will result in a toxin with 1000 times the
strength of the individual toxin.
Researchers from the University
a research in year 2536, they tried to change the gender
of a male turtle using the hormone: Natural Estrogen and mixing it
alone, compared to mixing it with a small amount PCB 2. The
incubated properly for the birth of a male turtle; results
show that the influence is PCB 2 is far greater than a single mix
type of PCB.
Today the attention is on the analysis of pesticides
that has a poison mixing mechanism and the analysis of
affects of these
resulting toxins. These analyses are now playing a bigger
row in the Codex committee on Pesticide Residues meeting. In the
meeting in April 2544, the committee agreed that the USA
will introduce analytical
Cumulative risk assessment on pesticides. The member countries
will then gain an understanding and report their results
in the next
However, there is currently a law that forces the Environmental
Protection Agency to analyze the affects on human health
that is caused by various
types of pesticides. The EPA also announced that the methods
taken will be an example to practitioners in January 2545.
This is done
protect the infant consumers that are found to be contaminated
with many toxins. This also includes food samples that are
found to contain
more than 2 types of toxins, as mentioned above.
