The effect of pesticides was studied in humans and animal models, and on enzymes in order to develop a better understanding of their mechanism of action, and thus provide guidance for their safe use. It was shown that reduction of human blood cholinesterase activity is a good indicator of exposure to anticholinesterase pesticides. Regular measurements of blood cholinesterase activity and removal of individuals from suspected occupational environments prevented hazardous absorption of pesticides in occupationally exposed people. Ophthalmological studies indicated some functional eye impairment in people exposed to pesticides for many years.
