How Pesticides Can Destroy Trees and Plants
Pesticides are realistically the only substance that we supply to our environment in order
to specifically kill life. These include herbicides, insecticides, fungicides,
rodenticides, and many others. Unfortunately, these toxins have become a very
common practice around the entire earth. These toxins are present in many
places such as homes, fields, farms, forests, roads, and buildings. Pesticides
are even present in our air, food, and water. These pesticides have already
been connected to our own health in the small cases of headaches all the way up
to cancer. Skin, nerve, and eye damage is a fairly common cases with pesticides
especially the ones we spray on plants.
Over exposure to these pesticides may create lifelong symptoms. Leukemia and lymphoma are two of the most commonly linked cancers to pesticide exposure. However, brain, bone, prostate, testicular, liver, and breast cancer are all connected to pesticides as well. These are
just a few of the many effects that pesticides have on humans. We have stronger
immune systems than plants and access to greater treatments, and nutrients. If
this is what happens to humans exposed to pesticides, can you even imagine what
pesticides do to plant life? The answers are out there. Thankfully there are
alternatives to pesticides out there as well.
