Description

An analysis of EPA data by the Center of Public Integrity shows that the number of reported human health problems, including severe reactions, attributed to pyrethrins and pyrethroids increased by about 300 percent over the past decade. These pesticides are marketed as the safe alternative to older pesticides, but researchers, epidemiologists, and doctors are starting to question the safety of these products. The investigation also found that the EPA received 25,000 reports of pet pesticide reactions of every sort -- fatal, major, moderate and minor -- to over-the-counter pyrethroid spot on products.
