The newer pesticides have, in comparison with the older ones, a good safety record. This is in large part due to intelligent enforcement of the Federal Insecticide, Rodenticide, and Fungicide Act, and of similar legislation in the various states. Educational camgaigns carried on by a great variety of groups, including industry, have helped to familiarize users with the facts and to establish the custom of reading the labels on economic poisons. The American Medical Association, the U.S. Public Health Service, and others have called the attention of physicians to the symptomatology and treatment of intoxication caused by various pesticides.
