Health Allegation of Unnecessary Use and Misuse of Pesticides by the Rural People: The Necessity for Alertness
most of the time; they are being mistakenly applied and mistreated mainly by the rural
occupiers in developing countries. The health allegation of abuse and mishandling of
pesticides were assessed and ways forward suggested. This review will provide the payback
of pesticide use, knowledge of the risks caused to people, wildlife and ecosystems. The paper
looks into how producers, consumers and government can reduce risks posed by pesticides.
The primary responsibility of manufacturers is to decrease risks posed by pesticides. To make
certain that undesirable effects on human health and the environment are prohibited,
pesticide registration, product labelling, government enforcement and applicator instruction
should form the foundation of a wide-ranging outline to standardize the manufacture, use
and clearance of pesticides. If the varied improvement processes suggested in this review is
remained to, the developing countries will be less contaminated with ecological risk.
