Translated title:
The relationship of pesticides to nutrition and their effects on human health
Summary:
The dangerous and irrational use of pesticides in crops and stored food products to control insects and pests has been a serious problem for the environment and public health. At the same time, the nutritional value of food is suppressed by adding toxins to pesticides. Thus, the effect of pesticides on human health, through diet and breathing, affects the respiratory system creating breathing problems, digestive, reproductive, endocrine system and effects on the central nervous system. At the same time, it leads to neuro-cerebral deficits and increased blood pressure in school-aged children, affects pregnant women, generates neuro-cerebrovascular and neurodevelopmental effects and is likely to cause diseases such as breast and prostate cancer, Parkinson's disease and childhood leukemia. The implications for health should therefore be considered as important public health issues and serious measures should be taken to deal with them immediately.
