I should also add a caveat to this statement to assure the reader that I do not favor the presence of chemicals for the sake of chemicals. The chemicals we are talking about are used in food production for specific beneficial purposes. It is these low-level residues that persist in some foods, below federal limits defined as safe, that I am not concerned about. If there is no need for a chemical to be present in food, then obviously no one should put it there, and efforts should be made to minimize exposure in the most cost-beneficial manner.

The thing that numbs the heart is this, That men cannot devise Some scheme of life to banish fear That lurks in most men’s eyes. (James Norman Hall, “Fear”) 3 Chapter The Pesticide Threat The reader now has some of the basic concepts necessary to objectively assess the real risk of consuming fruits and vegetables contaminated with residue levels of pesticides. There are a few more tools needed before we can solve the puzzle. Prior to addressing the true “toxicology” of these chemicals, we should become familiar with the actual culprits.

Examples include specific assays for immunotoxicity (damage to the immune system) and genetic toxicity (chemicals that may cause mutations). Some people have argued, and continue to argue, that this whole process is too restrictive. The cost to society could be a reduced number of effective drugs that might benefit a large number of people suffering from diseases for which there is no current treatment. Our society may be so risk aversive that many more innocent people suffer from a lack of drug availability than do those who actually experience adverse effects.
