New Research Examines Relationship Between Pesticides, the
Environment and Human Health

Pesticide Poisonings Prove 20 Times Higher Than Expected
An international team of scientists working in the highlands of
Ecuador has found that deaths and illness from human exposure
to insecticides is nearly 20 times higher than previously
estimated.

Using a new policy analysis tool known as the Tradeoff
Analysis Model, scientists at the Peruvian-based International
Potato Center, a Future Harvest Center, are calling into
question long-held beliefs about the relationship between
agro-chemicals, the environment, and human health.

The Tradeoff Analysis Model, or TOA, uses software that
integrates computer models from different disciplines. The
system produces easy-to-understand graphs that can help
decision makers weigh the complexities of issues where
agriculture, environment, and human health intersect.

FUTURE HARVEST

People are hungry not because of lack of availability of food, or "over" population, but
because they are too poor to afford the food. Politics and economic conditions that have
led to poverty and dependency around the world would not be alleviated if food production
is further increased and provided to more people

IMPORTANT HEALTH TIPS DURING HIGH
AIR POLLUTION DAYS


Dont exercise midday or in the afternoon, and avoid strenuous outdoor activity when
ozone smog or other pollution levels are high. The highest levels of ozone typically
occur during the afternoon.

Avoid congested streets and rush hour traffic since motor vehicles are a primary
source of air pollution.

Make sure teachers, coaches and recreation officials know about air pollution and
offer alternative indoor activities for children with asthma.

Be aware or the quality of the air you breathe. Pollution levels are often given with
local weather reports and printed in newspapers.

Watch the calendar. Ozone smog tends to be worst during the May-to-October
smog season. Be especially conscious of smog levels during hot weather.

Half the world -- nearly three billion people -- live on less than two
dollars a day.
The GDP (Gross Domestic Product) of the poorest 48 nations (i.e. a
quarter of the world's countries) is less than the wealth of the world's
three richest people combined.
Nearly a billion people entered the 21st century unable to read a book
or sign their names.
Less than one per cent of what the world spent every year on weapons
was be needed to put every child into school by the year 2000 and yet
it didn't happen.

Scientists believe that Global Warming will lead to a weaker Ozone layer, because as the
surface temperature rises, the stratosphere (the Ozone layer being found in the upper part)
will get colder, making the natural repairing of the Ozone slower.
