  • Human and Ecological Risk Assessment: An International Journal
ABSTRACT Improvements in chemical analytical technology and non-invasive sampling protocols have made it easier to detect pesticides and their metabolites at very low concentrations in human tissues. Monitoring has revealed that pesticides penetrate both maternal and paternal reproductive tissues and organs, thus providing a pathway for initiating harm to their offspring starting before fertilization throughout gestation and lactation. This article explores the literature that addresses the… 
Pesticide: An Appraisal on Human Health Implications
Production of food crops is severely constrained by damage from pests which is mainly managed by the use of infallible remedy called pesticides. The use of pesticides was introduced in India during
Effects of arsenic exposure during the pre- and postnatal development on the puberty of female offspring.
TLDR
It was found that the onset of puberty in the As treated rats was 1 mo delayed since vagina was still closed, the vaginal smear showed that they were at diestrus stage with plasma low E2 levels.
Pesticide Contamination and Human Health
TLDR
This review helps to seek the attention of researchers, government, and non-government organizations on health issues that have been associated with the exposure of harmful chemical pesticides and encourage research on finding the new concept in modern agriculture involving a reduction in the use of chemical pesticides.
Malaria Control Insecticide Residues in Breast Milk: The Need to Consider Infant Health Risks
TLDR
Evidence is presented showing that neurologic and endocrine effects are associated with pyrethroids and DDT at levels equal or below known levels in breast milk, which is a potentially significant route of exposure and risk to infants during evaluation of IRS insecticides.
Chlorinated Hydrocarbons and Pyrethrins/Pyrethroids
Publisher Summary This chapter discusses chlorinated hydrocarbons and pyrethrins/pyrethroids. Chlorinated hydrocarbon insecticides were heavily used after their introduction, but due to ecological
Toxicity of the herbicides used on herbicide-tolerant crops, and societal consequences of their use in France.
TLDR
Tests are in progress, and therefore the questions of the environmental risks and the toxicity of these herbicides for the animals and humans consuming the products derived from these plants should be addressed.
Anti-androgenic activities of environmental pesticides in the MDA-kb2 reporter cell line.
TLDR
Fipronil and bupirimate were new described for their AR antagonistic activity and none of the studied pesticides were able to induce the reporter gene after a 18 h exposure.
Pesticides induced oxidative stress and female infertility: a review
TLDR
The present review emphasizes upon pesticides-mediated oxidative stress and its influence on female fertility.
Chapter 36 – Chlorinated Hydrocarbons and Pyrethrins/Pyrethroids
Chlorinated hydrocarbons have lesser mammalian toxicity compared to organophosphate or carbamate insecticides; however, the former are not readily degradable under environmental conditions. As the
Are endocrine disrupting compounds environmental risk factors for autism spectrum disorder?
TLDR
This review will discuss possible mechanisms through which EDC exposure can lead to persistent changes in gene expression and phenotype, which may in turn contribute to transgenerational inheritance of ASD.

Reproductive effects of occupational DDT exposure among male malaria control workers.
TLDR
An increased risk of birth defects associated with high occupational exposure to DDT in this group of workers is found, and the significance of this association at lower exposure levels found in the general population remains uncertain.
Reproductive effects of occupational DDT exposure among male malaria control workers.
TLDR
An increased risk of birth defects associated with high occupational exposure to DDT in this group of workers is found, and the significance of this association at lower exposure levels found in the general population remains uncertain.
Male pesticide exposure and pregnancy outcome.
TLDR
No associations were found between farm chemicals and small-for-gestational-age births or altered sex ratio, and despite limitations in exposure assessment, the authors encourage continued evaluation of male exposures, particularly in relation to miscarriage and preterm delivery.
An exploratory analysis of the effect of pesticide exposure on the risk of spontaneous abortion in an Ontario farm population.
TLDR
This study shows that timing of exposure and restricting analyses to more homogeneous endpoints are important in characterizing the reproductive toxicity of pesticides.
Developmental toxicity of a commercial herbicide mixture in mice: I. Effects on embryo implantation and litter size.
We investigated the developmental toxicity in mice of a common commercial formulation of herbicide containing a mixture of 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D), mecoprop, dicamba, and inactive
Exposure to Organochlorine Compounds and Effects on Ovarian Function
TLDR
A potential effect of DDE on ovarian function is indicated, which may influence other end points such as fertility, pregnancy, and reproductive cancers.
Measurement of pesticides and other toxicants in amniotic fluid as a potential biomarker of prenatal exposure: a validation study.
TLDR
These levels are low compared with levels reported in urine, blood, and meconium in other studies, but indicate direct exposures to the young fetus, possibly during critical periods of development.
Paternal exposure to agricultural pesticides and cause specific fetal death
TLDR
Paternal agricultural work in the areas where pesticides are massively used increases the risk of fetal death from congenital anomalies and the risk is also increased for fetuses conceived during the time periods of maximum use of pesticides.
Reproductive effects in mink (Mustela vison) exposed to the pesticides Lindane, Carbofuran and Pentachlorophenol in a multigeneration study.
TLDR
Exposure of mink to Lindane from conception resulted in a decrease in reproductive efficiency when they were subsequently mated, leading to a 60% reduction in the number of kits born.
