The side effects of pesticides make looking at alternatives very important.
Did you know that:
~~> Lindane, which is given to people suffering from different insect bites and as a treatment for lice, has been banned in California and many 3rd world countries.
~~> The US Environmental Protection Agency has classified permethrin as a carcinogen because it causes lung tumors in lab rats. This is a cream that is used for insects.
~~> Some bugs have grown resistant to pesticides and insecticides.
AND, keep in mind that:
~~> Pesticides are poisons that do not know when to stop killing.
~~> Pesticides and insecticides do some serious collateral damage. They kill many animals that are good for the environment.
~~> These pesticides and insecticides are adversely affecting the health of people, too.
Those affected first and most seriously are:
- babies in utero
- pregnant women
- older folks
- people with allergies
- people with asthma
- people who get headaches and migraines
- people with immune system problems
- people with eczema and psoriasis
