Abstract
The responsibility of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act Science Advisory Panel in relation to human health and pesticides is discussed. The use patterns and resulting medical problems monitored by the panel include past and present acute, high chronic, and incidental exposures. The authors mention that acute pesticide exposures may result in dermatitis, eye injury, or poisoning. Chronic occupational exposure is possible among manufacturing or agricultural workers, and other pesticide users. Pathological results may include renal tubular dysfunction, lung cancer, male sterility, neurological and behavioral problems, or some as yet unidentified responses. Low chronic exposure and incidental exposure are due to environmental pesticide residues and may be associated with biological magnification. The authors recommend that cancer mortality data be included in geographical pesticide monitoring reports so that environmental exposure data can be compared to pathology findings.
