A recent Scientific American journal article shows that scientists are worried about the long-term effects of ‘forever chemicals’. These are aptly named chemicals that can take upwards of 100 years to molecularly break down. It happens that 70% of pesticides that were created between 2015 and 2020 have these chemicals in them. Forever chemicals have been found in everything from our drinking water to our bloodstreams, and can be found in things like plastics, cookware, and clothing.
The article adds yet another abrasive headline targeting toxic pesticides and their long-term effects on humans. It’s clearly not just the consumption of these pesticides that have scientists worried. Just having them in the environment can expose us to these chemicals with multiple different ways to enter our bodies.
It shows an even further need for the use of organic pesticides to eliminate pests in our produce crops. Companies like Rollins (NYSE:ROL), Bayer AG (OTC:BAYRY), and Black Bird Biotech (OTC:BBBT) are on the cutting edge of creating healthier alternatives for pesticide usage. These organic pesticides can be just as effective in eliminating pests without the harsh residue of toxic chemicals staying on our produce.
Black Bird Biotech has an EPA-approved organic pesticide called MiteXStream. It is made from plant-based products and protects all of the most common crops from spider mites and other forms of insects.
