Pesticide Chemistry and Toxicology

A substance used for controlling or reducing the damage caused by pests is called as pesticide. It can be a chemical substance, antimicrobial, disinfectant or even a biological agent. But the excessive usage of these has increased the toxic relevance in foods. This led to regulations for the market and usage. This is directly under the jurisdiction of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) which sets up limits for usage of each and every kind of pesticide/insecticide.

Chlorophenoxy herbicides, one of the widely used pesticides has high relevance to mammalian toxicity. Sublethal levels of doses are known to cause muscle weakness and further addition of doses to ataxia, paralysis, coma and also stiffness of limbs. The prevalence of a wide range of diseased states lead to the need to study the pesticide chemistry and its relevance in toxicology.
