Hello Everyone here Ji, After watching today's SATYAMEV-JAYATEY' BY Amir Khan I dare to prononce that Impact caused to human-lives and ill efects today by droping of Hydrogen Bomb on Hiroshima & Nagasaki and recent Bhopal gas tragedy seems no-where when I compare ill effects of In-organic production of Farming. Spreading and use of Pesticides should totally be banned.

I fear for my own health too. Knowing that the food that i eat is covered by chemicals and poisons. Health authorities should conduct more checks on the things the farmers use in their farms. Also research should be conducted to see the effect of certain chemicals on human being in the long run. I mean pesticides is an industries, from time to time there will always be new products introduced by pesticides companies. Just need to make sure all these won't affect any lives short term or long term. Promote more organic farmings. I myself starting to fear some of the stuff i buy from the markets and i am thinking of growing some of my favourite vegetables for my own use.

I am a professional beekeeper, and 2 winters ago I lost 50% of my bees. We suspect CCD, (Colony collapse Disease) for the loss, which may be caused by farmers spraying Insecticide, Fungicide, and Herbicides on their crops. This being said, we must use Insecticides in our own honeybee colonies to prevent the bees from dying from American Foul Brood, and Varoa Mites. We are part of our own problem, and there is Nothing we can do about it! If all farmers went Organic the world would starve! There is no way farmers could feed the world without the use of chemicals on their crops, and their animals!

Bhabhji Do you remember initially they gave manures and pesticides free; this decreased the productivity of our soil, next we had to pay for these stuff, what we eat are just poison, we pay 60 rupees for one kilo of vegetable but get the diseases in the long run free..

Sikkim has declared that by 2015, it will become an organioc state. It is very true that we were un-known about it's ill effects till now, but after knowing we should undue the problem. Please go through link first. May God bless You and have a great time

Yes you are right, using inorganic pesticides really helps farmers in controlling pests in their plants. However, there are some residues remained in the plant where they harveste as well as to the soils where they applied pesticides. One of my calssmate's thesis in college was about pesticide residues in plant. He found that most of the plant samples sold in the market have pesticide residues but still within the tolerable limit. Yes it was tolerable and will not caused poison to eaters. However, we must consider the law of bioaccumulation. which means that this pesticides will accumulated in the body of the eaters whether animals or human. In the long run, this will have a ill effect in our body.
