Growing crops without the use of pesticides.
The Problem Using Pesticide
The problem with using pesticide is that when it rains, the rain can carry the pesticides to near by rivers and pollute the water and kill the fishes living in that environment. It is also one of the chemicals that pollute the air. When pesticides are sprayed into the air the wind carries them off to other area.
How It Affects Humans
Pesticides can enter the body by inhaling aerosols, dust that contain pesticides. This can cause tumors, birth defects, genetic mutations, blood and nerve disorders. Children are most likely to become affected because they are still developing and have a weaker immune system than adult.
