||Man is often subjected to relatively high levels of pesticide compounds when he is actively engaged in pest control operations or working directly with the compounds in formulating plants. Experience has shown that if proper precautinary measures and directions are followed, even the more toxic compounds can be handled safely. Although illnesses and even deaths from pesticides occur each year in the United States, it should be pointed out that most of these cases are caused by carelessness or by accident. The article discusses protection of the various routes of entry of pesticides to the body.
