Farm workers chronically exposed to low levels of pesticides seldom show signs and symptoms of clinical significance. Pesticide poisoning can be acute and chronic. The primary targets of toxicity are the hematopoietic system, the cardiovascular system, the reproductive system and the nervous system. Pesticides can cause gene mutations and chromosomal aberrations in exposed individuals. Mild temporary symptoms of poisoning including headache, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, diarrhea, abdominal pain, myalgia, salivation, mental confusion, fatigue, etc., may quite frequently occur. It is essential to recognize detrimental effects of pesticides timely, thus enabling the earliest possible administration of appropriate treatment.
