A recent study showed a link between pesticide use and depression in men exposed to chemicals on farms. An earlier study was also conducted looking at the effects of pesticides in women, which found links to depression too. And there have been others producing similar results.
But there is an even more fundamental question that requires no research, one the chemical companies should address in earnest. And that is, if you create chemicals to kill, (I don’t care what they are killing – bugs, weeds, bees, whatever) they are made to exterminate life. The question then becomes, in what quantity are they dangerous and for whom? You can’t have it both ways. They can’t be poisonous only sometimes on some forms of life.
I agree that levels swing the argument one way or another. A trace amount is much different than a large dose. But, to layer on one small dose after another is to create a large dose. That point seems to be lost on the regulators. Even though the general population will never receive the same amount of pesticides that farmers like those in the studies did, doses will continue to get larger, stronger and more ubiquitous if the EPA and USDA keep upping the ante on acceptable levels. And this is where the sustainability argument comes in. Nature at some point will collapseunder the burden of manmade interference.
