You may not realize it, but you are exposed to hundreds of pesticides every day. Pesticides can be found on the foods we eat, in the products we use in our yards and gardens, and even in the air we breathe. Exposure to these toxic chemicals can have adverse health effects ranging from mild, causing temporary skin or eye irritation, to severe, causing cancer and extreme birth defects.
Prolonged exposure to pesticides over the course of a pregnancy, as is common with farm workers, can cause severe birth defects, such as missing or deformed limbs, ears, and noses, missing eyes, undeveloped jaws, and lack of sex organs, just to name a few. In the most severe cases, babies whose mothers are exposed to pesticides are born with neural tube and heart defects. These children will face physical, emotional, and developmental challenges for the rest of their lives.
