Effect of Pesticides on Nervous System or Neural Health
Keywords:Pesticides, Neurotoxicity, Alzheimer, Parkinson, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Intermediate syndrome
Pesticides will be utilized to manage pests that are important to agriculture and health care, and they will continue to be necessary for the future related to food security and prevention and control. Pesticides are unlikely to be phased out in the foreseeable future, but they should be handled with prudence. The majority of pesticides are hazardous to humans and can cause serious health problems which lead to death. During chemical spraying, skin contact accounts for about all of the body exposure. Contamination, such as for local farmers in open vegetable farming or pesticide industry employees, may result in direct exposure. Indirect exposure can occur through dietary goods such as food and drinking water, as well as the usage of repellents in homes. Some neurotoxic effects are immediately apparent, while others might take months or even years to appear. A variety of variables, including the toxin’s characteristics and the dosage a person, is exposed to, determine the consequences of neurotoxicity. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Intermediate syndrome, Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s disease are diseases that highly damage the mental health and the neural health of a person. This review is mainly focused on types of pesticides, route of pesticide entry in body, their effect on human health, and how these pesticides induce neural diseases.
