Biologic Markers: Monitoring Populations Exposed to Pesticides
Pesticides are used extensively throughout the world to control or eradicate environmental pests. Their use can be of vital importance in producing a successful crop. When properly used, pesticides do not cause adverse health effects in humans. Improper use of these substances, however, can result in adverse health effects ranging from minor dermal irritation to death.
