Why Organic Pesticides are much Safer

Chemical pesticides may have its pro’s to its use. But several studies have already emerged that the use of such products may also cause impairments to human beings. If there really were a need for insect repellants (especially if you’re into gardening, farming, etc.), then it would still be a better alternative to go for the organic based products, such as that of organic pesticides.
Why a certain pesticide called ‘Organochlorines’ were banned from the US
According to a recent study conducted by the researchers of the Finnish National Institute for Health and Welfare, Organochlorines were found on pesticide. It’s recognized as ‘Persistent Organic Pollutants’, pollutants that may aid in generating the diabetes disease in humans. These POPs work by damaging the part of the body that produces glucose; and the people that are more at risk of being affected by these POPs would be the overweight individuals.
The connection between pesticides and birth defects, and other diseases
A group of Chinese researchers have also come to associate the use of pesticides to women bearing children with abnormalities. A number of Chinese women were examined and were found to have high percentages of chemicals in their placenta after giving birth (such chemicals were linked to insecticides and from coal smoke inhalation). Other than these birth anomalies, diseases such as nerve ailments and certain cancers were also linked to the use of these toxic products. Most of the people that also get hit by these non-organic pesticides are not just the mothers and children; the elderly are put to risk as well.
Why Chemical Pesticides are harmful to exposed citizens
Exposing yourself to the use of synthetic insect repellants without the proper gears can definitely endanger not just yourself, but the people around you as well. Just take for example some farm companies that endanger their workers’ health with their limitations: insufficient when it comes to protective gears, no hand washing or toilet facilities, no drinking water, etc. These are not safe practices, and should be well managed by companies that frequently use these synthetic products.
Organic Pesticides – A Safer Substitute
An organic garden pest control, particularly the kind that’s been produced and harvested from worms is teeming with microbial activity. Since compost worms such as red wiggler worms only consume natural wastes (kitchen scraps and other garden wastes), you can be assured of a safer substitute to chemical insecticides. Now, the best part about using worm compost is that it contains a healthy population of beneficial microorganisms. These microbes that are contained in the worm poop can be instantly applied on both garden/farm soil and produce without having to worry about burns or other harmful side effects. Right after an application, these good bacteria will then aid in destroying pathogens, and will also help deter certain insects. Of course, the other perks to using organic pesticides would be that your soil and produce would be able to experience an improvement in their other properties.
