1 IT Department, FPT University, Vietnam
Chemicals such as pesticides, antibiotics and hormones are used for plants and animals to boost production and ensure an adequate supply of food. However, when using these chemicals in excess of the maximum allowable limit in food can cause many unfortunate consequences for human health, from short-term effects such as headaches and nausea to chronic effects such as cancer, damaging organs and causing many diseases. The harms of many pesticides and plant protection to human health and ecosystems in Vietnam are something that scientists, newspapers and many organizations have warned against for many years. Plant protection drugs are toxic to humans and livestock, adversely affect public health, pollute the environment, and kill both insects and beneficial microorganisms, thereby creating conditions for stronger disease development. If using the wrong technique, it will quickly create resistance to the insecticide. Plant protection drugs sometimes leave toxic residues on agricultural products, poisoning users, reducing the quality and competitiveness of agricultural products. The article uses the method of analyzing and comparing data and numbers to determine the impact of pesticides on human life. This paper also focuses on analyzing the use of homestead, the disadvantages, limitations, and negatives of the drugs to life and to raise awareness of drug users.
