Dangerous Pests

This video from the Environmental Illness Network is an advertisement against pesticides. It reminded me of two things: our discussion last week on EI and the Entomology class I took last semester.

Since most people choose not to buy produce with worm hole or bites, chemical control of insects is important to the agricultural industry. Although they are very effective and offer fast (and complete) protection against various types of insects, they are detrimental to humans and the environment. Residue problems and incorrect use of pesticides contribute to Environmental Illness and other illnesses associated with the exposure to these harmful chemicals.

Who are the REAL pests? Pesticides or Insects?
