The use of plant protection products to protect crops from insect pests and diseases results in the contamination of food with toxic pesticides.
Human exposure to pesticides is mainly through food via the consumption of fruit, vegetables and cereals contaminated by pesticide residues.
Perfluoroalkyl PFAS are used in many everyday consumer products, such as
The high bioaccumulation of perfluoroalkyls (PFAS) has been demonstrated in Arctic animals such as polar bears, seals, bald eagles, birds and fish. There is great concern about the pollution of the environment (water, air, soil) by PFAS and their impact on health. Due to their heavy use, only PFOA and PFOS have health effects reported in the scientific literature, unlike other PFAS, which have not been the subject of many toxicological studies.
Significant reduction in the risk of food contamination by pesticide residues through organic farming.
Today, it is difficult to escape from phthalates, the compounds used in the manufacture of most plastics: flooring, food packaging, toys, medical devices, etc.
Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are synthetic molecules used in many industrial applications until they were banned due to their toxicity and their very persistent nature in the environment.
