Fields of Poison 2002: California Farmworkers & Pesticides (in English & Spanish)
Margaret Reeves, Anne Katten, & Martha Guzman. Agricultural workers face greater threats from pesticide-related illnesses -- including acute poisonings & long-term effects such as cancer & birth defects -- than any other sector of society. Farmworkers & their children, are exposed to pesticides while working in & living near the fields. To shed light on this issue, the CA for Pesticide Reform issued a report on the problem in June 1999, presenting CA Dept. of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) data showing that from 1991 to 1996 DPR reported nearly 4,000 cases of farmworker pesticide poisoning, & concluding that the problem was even more serious. This report, in both English & Spanish, updates that 1999 report & shows that farmworkers continue to face unacceptable threats of exposure to hazardous pesticides.
