Harmful pesticides: residues of pesticides in drinking water and food

Posted on November 20, 2009 under Food Safety | Comments are off for this article

The global anti-chemical movement is growing stronger. As scientists dare to acknowledge and educated consumers realize more and more that harmful residues of pesticides in drinking water, vegetables, fruit and almost any other non-organic food are impossible to get rid of, the producers of agrochemicals start talking about global shortage of food, their contribution to sustainability and the importance of technological progress. Behind the truth about poverty, the need for a better environment and the abuse of progressive and socially beneficial inventions by private global corporations through acquisition of patents, we will soon find the real face of the agrochemical producers who have been intoxicating the World for the past decades. Syngenta, Aventis, Monsanto, Bayer, BASF, Dow, DuPont, Sumitomo, Makhtesim-Agan, FMC and many more smaller manufacturers of toxic pesticides are already responsible for the vanishing of over 70% of crop-pollinating honey bees in the USA and Western Europe, increased levels of harmful heavy metals in drinking water, spread of soil degradation and overall negative impact on animal and human immune system which has resulted in pandemic of various diseases including the most recent world epidemic of swine flu responsible for thousands of deaths around the World.

The harmful effects from the use of toxic pesticides and herbicides have reached their geographic and pandemic peak. Or haven’t they just yet?

Zoologists around the World acknowledge that the vanishing of certain species of animals occur due to intensive chemical agriculture. The general weakening of the immune system of humans in many countries of the World is related by doctors with the quality of food which people generally consume. Most of that food has been grown with the use of synthetic fertilizers, toxic pesticides and herbicides, stored and transported in the conditions of deep conservation.

The harmful agrochemicals in foods are impossible to get rid of. Residues of pesticides in drinking water (coming from contaminated ground waters of the vast agricultural lands), vegetables, fruit and cereals remain in food and get consumed by people. The residues of pesticides and herbicides which accumulate in human bodies intoxicate immune systems with heavy metals and cancerous substances which eventually effect human genes. One of the most drastic negative effects on the human genes though come from the genetically modified (GM) crops which get consumer by humans.

Most of the GM plants come to the market with the depressed reproduction gene. The reproduction limitation is introduced by GM seed producers in order to control the steady supply of the seeds by demotivating farmers collect seeding material from the harvested GM crops.

The negative influence of toxic pesticides and herbicides applied on commercial crops is tremendous. There will come time when Syngenta, Aventis, Monsanto, Bayer, BASF, Dow, DuPont, Sumitomo, Makhtesim-Agan, FMC and other manufacturers of toxic pesticides and herbicides will be taken to the international court for their current earnings on the mass murder of animals and humans around the World.
