Pesticides are synthetic chemicals that are used to control the insects, weeds and rodents that are known to destroy food supplies or living areas. Pesticide residues are commonly found in non-organic fruits and vegetables. The most common pesticides used in agriculture include Chlordane, Dioxin, Diphenylamine and Heptachlor.

Excessive exposure to pesticides is linked to immune suppression and may play a role in nervous system conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson's disease. Many pesticides have also been implicated in the development of certain cancers such as prostate cancer and exposure may increase the risk of male infertility.
