Abstract
The article discusses the entry of pesticides into the body. Protection of these routes means prevention of exposure and prevention of exposure is undoubtedly the best insurance against poisoning. There are four routes of entry of pesticide compounds into the body: (1) dermal, (2) respiratory, (3) oral, and (4) through cuts or abrasions in the skin.
