Slow poisoning of India

A great weakness may be food when we are watering our mouth to eat delicious food,we aren't even thinking that we are ingesting harmful chemicals from the pesticides that are sprayed onto it.If we talk about India,pesticides are used indiscriminately and unevenly in the land of ecosystem of India.Farmers use the chemicals carelessly and sometimes they use the wrong chemicals while other overuse.Crops are harvested at the spring so that the hazard level of pesticide is seen in Tomato,Cabbage,Cauliflower and lady's finger.Harmful fungicide are used to ripen the fruits.Whitish and fresh cauliflower which are seen in the market are because of use of pesticides.Cauliflower in pale yellow color are the real ones which are not affected by pesticides.Pesticides has become the burning issue of not only India but also whole world. It can lead to dangerous disease from the residues such as cancer,genetic defects,mental retardation.Slow poisoning of India is threating everyone.Government study shows that it was caused by the aerial spraying of endosulfine which is deadly pesticide.Endosulphine hang on long into the plant after it has been spread.Pest destroy crops about 15 billion rupees in India.Farmers use pesticides to kill them and use it in excessive amount thinking that it will be more effective.But study has shown that about only 10% is sufficient to hit the pesticides.Various applications should be used so that the use can be mitigate and people should be encourages to apply biopesticide instead of pesticides.This can be more helpful for the sustaining ecosystem.

    I believe greatly that the country should introduce biological pesticides in her farming system.
