What are the effects of pesticides on health?

effects of pesticides on health
  • Pesticides are the chemical substances that are designed to kill pests. Many pesticides can put adverse affect on human health. To determine risk, one must consider both the toxicity and hazard of the pesticide and the likelihood of exposure. A low level of exposure to a very toxic pesticide may be no more dangerous than a high level of exposure to a relatively low toxicity pesticide, for example.
  • Pesticides can lead to short-term health effects that are known as acute effects, as well as chronic adverse effects that can take months or years to show effect after exposure.  Some acute health effects are rashes , blisters on the body ,stinging eyes,  blindness, nausea, dizziness, diarrhea and death. Examples of known chronic effects are cancers, birth defects, reproductive harm, immune toxicity, neurological and developmental toxicity, and disruption of the endocrine system.
  • Some people are more prone to impacts of pesticides than others. Effects of pesticides can be seen in every age group. But infants and young children are more susceptible to the toxic effects of pesticides than adults . Occupation can also make a difference as Farmers and pesticide applicators are more vulnerable to the affects because they more exposure to pesticides.

Acute (Immediate) Health Effect

Acute health effects are seen in people after immediate exposure from pesticide symptoms may include

  • Irritation of the nose, throat, and skin
  • Burning sensation in skin
  • Itching, rashes and blisters.
  • Nausea, dizziness and diarrhea
  • Sometimes difficulty in breathing
  • Severe reactions are seen in people who are suffering with asthma. Some pesticides cause more severe reactions mainly pyrethrin/pyrethroid, organophosphate and carbamate pesticides.


  • As symptoms of pesticide poisoning mimic symptoms of other conditions like cold or the flu. Due to this reason, pesticide poisonings are often misdiagnosed and under-reported. Immediate symptoms of poisoning are not severe enough that an individual have to take medical attention, or a doctor might not even think to ask about pesticide exposure. Still immediate consultation of doctor is required if you have any doubt that you may have been poisoned by pesticides.

Chronic (Long-term) Health Effects

Chronic health effects of pesticide poisoning occur after long term exposure of pesticides. These include

  • Cancer and other tumors
  • Brain and nervous system damage
  • Birth defects
  • Infertility and other reproductive problems
  • Can cause damage to the internal organs like lungs, liver, kidneys and other body organs.


Many studies shows that effects of pesticide exposure has increased the risk of cancer. Body parts that are involved include kidney, pancrease , liver , lung  and skin. Increased risk  of cancer have been found in the  farmers  who apply these chemicals in the farms Exposure to insecticides within the home and herbicides outside is associated with blood cancers in children.


Researchs have shown that pesticide exposure to people have worsened neurological disorders outcome.

Reproductive effects

Pesticide exposure To Pregnant ladies can lead to birth defects, fetal death and also put adverse effect on fetal growth.  It has also been associated with bad health and genetic effects. It was also noted that new born when at some point exposed to pesticides had a low birth weight and  developmental defects.


A number of pesticides affect fertility in males. Pesticide exposure in males reduced fertility in males, genetic alterations in sperm, a reduced number of sperm, damage to germinal epithelium and altered hormone function.


Some studies have found that pesticide exposure can also lead to many kind of skin conditions like dermatitis.

Poisoning can leads to respiratory problems.

People who are exposed to pesticides are at greater risk of diabetes.

Children are More Vulnerable to Pesticide Exposure

  • Children are more susceptible to infection because their organs, nervous systems and immune systems are still developing. Metabolism system is also not that much developed in so children are not able to detoxify properly and excrete the harmful toxins and pesticides . Exposure during growing period can also increase the severity of symptoms in children.
  • Moreover children have a higher respiratory rate and more exposure to airborne pesticides is there at a faster rate than adults. Children also consume proportionately more food and water — and pesticide residues — than adults. Children have more contact with grounds and playgrounds so their chances of exposure to pesticides poisoning increases.

Health Effects of Certain Classes of Pesticides

  • Organophosphates & Carbamate- These pesticides affect the nervous system and brain. So in this poisoning impairment of signal transmission occur. Symptoms of this poisoning include nausea, headaches, nausea, vomiting, pain in chest pain, muscle pain and confusion. In severe poisoning cases convulsions, difficulty breathing, involuntary urination, coma and death may occur.
  • Soil Fumigants:These pesticideswhen applied to soil, forming a gas that is toxic to nematodes, fungi, bacteria, insects and plants in the soil. Because of the gases, they move from the soil into the air and affect people living or working nearby. These commonly affect the respiratory system in the people and leads to symptoms like headache, sunken eyes, infections in lungs etc.
  • Pyrethroids: These are the chemicals compounds that are similar to botanical compounds but have been designed to be more persistent. They are also toxic to the nervous system. Symptoms of pyrethroid poisoning include salivation, tremors, headache, fatigue ,itchy skin and involuntary twitching etc.

SHOP Itching Solution Kit

Route of Exposure

  • People can be exposed to pesticide poisoning by a number of different routes of exposure include: occupation, air-borne and in their food.
  • There are concerns that pesticides used to control pests on food crops are dangerous to people who consume those foods. These concerns are one reason for the organic food movement. Many food crops, including fruits and vegetables, contain pesticide residues after being washed or peeled.

The Final word

  • Exposure to pesticides can affect the health of people and can lead to severe health risks. So proper preventions must be taken while doing work in farms . Also people should be use vegetables, fruits after proper washing or cleaning. Extra care should be given towards children.

What to eat and what not to eat in the spring season according to Ayurveda

Spring is one of the six seasons of North India and neighboring countries, which spreads its beauty in this region between February, March and April. In this season, we should eat a lot of leftovers, otherwise there is an adverse effect on health. Consumption of sweets, dry fruits, sour sweet fruits, curd, ice cream and heavy food is prohibited in this season. At the beginning of spring, the coolness starts decreasing and the heat of the sun starts increasing. According to Ayurveda, during this time the Kapha dosha starts increasing, due to which the fire element starts decreasing in this season and the problem of not being able to digest properly increases. If you are struggling with the problem of indigestion in this season, then do not worry. To stay healthy and full of energy in this season, we should take special care of our food and drink.

According to the predominance of doshas in our body at the time of birth, according to the nature of seven types of doshas have been described in Ayurveda – Vata Pitta, Pitta Kapha, Kapha Vata, Sannipataj (Vata Pitta Kapha is present in equal quantity), Vataja, Pittaja, Kaphaja. These doshas keep changing in every season. Ritucharya has been described to keep these two even. According to the Ritucharya, it is told that in which season one should live and eat, so that one can remain healthy and avoid the defects and diseases that increase in that season. In Ayurveda, 6 seasons have been described and according to them diet and behavior have also been told. By taking care of them, women can remain healthy and full of energy.

To maintain good digestion power in the spring season, one should eat it thoughtfully. Overeating should be avoided in this season. Eat when you are hungry. According to Ayurveda, sweet, sour, too salty or oily food should not be eaten in the spring, as they increase the kapha dosha. Heavy food like urad dal, puri-kachori should not be taken in this season. One should not sleep during the day as there is a possibility of increasing Kapha dosha. Do not use curd when cholesterol is increased because curd has an ayurvedic special quality ‘Abhishyanda’. Abhishyanda guna/karma creates blockage in the channels of the body, arteries etc. Whether to eat curd when menstruation comes, know whether it is true or myth. According to Ayurveda, taking special care of food during this season can prevent Kapha Dost from growing. In this season, it is good to take things with strong juice like bitter gourd, parwal, things with bitter juice like soup etc. In this season, eat light food, which is easy to digest such as moong dal, khichdi, porridge etc. Apart from this, vegetables like gourd, cabbage, carrot, spinach, peas containing nutritious elements should also be included in your diet. If honey and lukewarm water are consumed during this season, then it can also prevent the increase of Kapha dosha and gives relief in cold and cough.

What to eat and what to avoid in spring

There are about 15 grams of protein in 100 grams of black gram. There are many benefits of eating black gram but there are also some disadvantages. Know how much gram should be eaten in a day.

Black gram makes muscles strong and intestines health.
100 grams of kidney beans means a confluence of protein and iron

Spring season means the time between summer and cold in the spring season. It is hot during the day and cold at night. This time starts from 16 March and runs till 15 May. If the weather has changed then it is obvious that many types of chemical changes must have happened in our body. Now if there have been so many changes that it cannot happen that whatever you were eating and drinking last month will continue. Change is necessary in that too.

If you do not do it, it is not that you will fall ill the very next day, but in the long term, there will be a loss, if there is any disease in the body, then it will increase. Whatever is written in Ayurveda has been written after a very long and deep research. Therefore it should never be taken lightly. In this article, we are giving you information about what to eat and what to avoid during the spring season.

What to eat in spring season

As stated above, this season is characterized by instability in summer and winter, so it has an immediate effect on the health of the body. Keeping this in mind, one should not be negligent in eating and drinking during this season. Light, fresh, easily digestible and pungent and astringent food should be consumed during the cold season. Instead of greasy food, dry food should be eaten. Food made of rice, gram, barley and wheat should be eaten and honey must be used in the diet.

Ginger, bitter gourd, amla, parwal, sattu, moong dal, green vegetables, gourd, spinach, lemon, dry ginger, carrot and seasonal fruits should also be eaten. Boiled water with ginger, honey mixed with water or rain water should be drunk in large quantities. It is considered good to drink water from old grains, mustard oil, peepal, black pepper, myrrh, bahera, amla, bel, small radish, mustard, paddy slag, poppy seeds. It is considered good for non-vegetarians to eat the meat of rabbits and animals living in the desert forests. It is considered good to take powder of myrobalan with honey.

Foods to avoid in spring season

To avoid diseases of this season, one should not eat greasy, sour, sweet and heavy substances. The consumption of fried and spicy food and sweets should be kept to a minimum. During the spring season, sleeping during the day should be avoided as it increases the phlegm further. Staying awake at night also worsens air disease. Therefore, one should not stay awake for long at night.

Staying awake till late in the night and sleeping till late in the morning dry up the stool, and also feel hungry late and the glow of the face and eyes also ends. Therefore, sleeping early in the night during this time should also wake up early in the morning.

Effects on body

In this season, the body starts suffering from phlegm, because the phlegm accumulated in the body during the winter season melts due to the heat of the sun during the spring season. Due to this diseases start in the digestive fire. With this the nausea starts. In this season, phlegm increases so much that diseases like tonsils, cough, sore throat, cold, cold and phlegm- fever (flu) immediately surround it.

How to stay healthy

To maintain health, we should do light exercise daily in the spring season. It is good to take a walk before the sun rises, massage with ubtan and take a warm bath. After bathing, the body should be coated with smelling things like camphor, sandalwood, agaru, kumkum, etc. You should take a bath again in the evening. In this season, smoking (cigarettes) made from herbs should be drunk and it is good to apply kajal in the eyes.

At this time in the month of Chaitra, 10-15 leaves of neem should be chewed and eaten on an empty stomach in the morning. By eating continuously for a few days, a person does not have blood diseases, skin diseases, fever etc. throughout the year. Along with the beauty of nature, walking in the gardens also gives happiness to the mind and body. In this season loose cotton clothes should be worn, which are not very bright colours. It is good to use an umbrella or a cap on the head in the sun. We do not get sunlight because of this.

DIABETIC NEUROPATHY: Know the Symptoms, Ayurveda Treatment and Prevention Methods

Due to damage to the nerves in diabetes Patient, there are problems like tingling, prickling and numbness in the hands and feet. This is called diabetic neuropathy. It is one of the most common problems of diabetes caused due to increased blood sugar level in the body.

What is diabetic neuropathy?

The name ‘diabetic neuropathy’ is used only for the problems associated with diabetes (nerves in the body are called fibers through which signals from one place to another place in the body).

There are many different types of diabetic neuropathy depending on the part of the body affected.

  1. Peripheral neuropathy
  2. Sensory neuropathy
  3. Automatic Neuropathy
  4. Focal Neuropathy

    In this article, we will talk about peripheral neuropathy in detail.

    Peripheral neuropathy

    Peripheral neuropathy damages the nerves around the hands and feet. Due to this, the affected person has to go through problems like tingling, pain and numbness in the arms and legs.

    Its symptoms first affect the hands and feet and gradually spread throughout the body. Such a sensation occurs even while wearing stockings or gloves. That’s why doctors also call it the stocking-glove pattern. Some people are also very sensitive to touch.

    If this is not taken care of, the affected nerves can get worse in the future (over 10 or 20 years).


    The person may feel these signs and symptoms:

    • Weakness and dizziness
    • Weight loss, as muscle mass is lost.
    • Loss of coordination and balance
    • Digestive problems
    • Trouble with sexual activity
    • Blisters on feet

    These symptoms progress very slowly, so they are not recognized until they become very serious or complicated.

    Peripheral neuropathy is already present in 10.5% to 32.2% of people with diabetes in India. At the same time, about 50% of people get this problem during diabetes.

    Who is at risk of Peripheral Neuropathy?

    Anyone affected by diabetes can develop peripheral neuropathy. However, in these conditions mentioned below, the risk is high.

    • Age Factor- Age more than 55 years old.
    • Affected by diabetes for a long time.
    • Blood sugar is not being controlled.
    • High blood pressure or Hypertension.
    • Obesity

    Who gets Peripheral Neuropathy?

    Researchers have not been able to determine the exact cause of peripheral neuropathy. Although there is no doubt that it is caused due to high blood sugar level.

    Recent research shows that in addition to high blood sugar levels, metabolic disorders, changes in blood vessels, high blood pressure can also cause this problem.

    Apart from this, due to high fat and high cholesterol level around the waist, peripheral neuropathy can also occur.

    The increase in the amount of sugar in the blood causes damage to the blood vessels, which affects the supply of blood from nerve cells to other parts of the body. Because of this, there is no oxygen supply to the nerve cells, which causes damage that cannot be repaired.

    Care for peripheral neuropathy

    Unfortunately, there is no cure for diabetic neuropathy in modern science. Doctors prescribe medicines such as pain relievers and anti-depressants to reduce its symptoms. Prescribed Cream and ointment also helps in relieving the symptoms.

    Controlling the blood sugar level is the best way to protect the nerves from damage.

    These Tips Will Help in Overcoming the Pain-

    1. Exercise as much as possible – Exercise not only relieves pain but also improves mood. Things like walking, gardening, doing household chores and doing light activities come in exercise only.
    2. Take care gently clean, dry and apply moisturizer to your feet every evening. Regularly check for blisters, cuts and wounds on the feet. If any wound is found on the feet and it is getting delayed in recovery, then go to the doctor without delay.
    3. If you are suffering from diabetic neuropathy, then smoking can be dangerous for you as it aggravates the problems of the feet. Apart from this, the pain also increases with smoking.
    4. Cut of alcohol from your life.
    5. Buy a good pair of shoes. Your shoes should be comfortable. Do not wear high heeled shoes.
    6. It is also important to adopt a healthy diet to control blood sugar level:


    • Eat less sweet and oily things.
    • Eat small amounts but at short intervals, eat at least five times a day.
    • Eat more fruits and vegetables.
    • Avoid fruit juices as they are low in fiber and high in sugar.
