About us

As people age, they can become increasingly sensitive to pesticide exposure. Certain changes that occur with age limit the body's ability to process pesticide chemicals efficiently, or recover from adverse effects that may occur following a pesticide exposure. While older adults make up less than 3% of reported pesticide exposures, they account for a higher number of moderate or major outcomes, including deaths. Therefore, older adults should consider taking precautions to minimize their exposure to pesticides.
