What are pesticides? Pesticides are chemicals that are sprayed onto crops to get rid of pests. Pesticides are chemicals that are sprayed on plants to make them look greener or to kill pests or weeds. These pesticides can come in many forms and be found even on the products you find at the grocery store and are very common. However, pesticides can cause a variety of health issues like Parkinson's disease, asthma, kidney cancer, ADHD, lack of mental development, birth defects, respiratory diseases,  lung cancer, coma, and sometimes death.

We would like to ban the use of pesticides from farms, fields, parks, and lawns. Pesticides contain copper, lead, and arsenic which are all dangerous and cancerous. Many farmers that have been suffering from pesticide poisoning and exposure don’t get proper health treatment. Some alternatives include buying organic produce and washing your fruits with things like vinegar or baking soda. You could also use natural methods instead of pesticides for your crops like crop rotation and organic weed killers and you can also use vegetable oil, garlic, chile pepper, and soap sprays to get rid of bugs. 

This is why we should ban pesticides, especially when there are more natural resources to use instead.
