Pesticides in food
The increasing population demand high productivity in food production. Because of that, agriculture industry utilizes pesticides on a large scale. In some countries, the substances are strongly regulated and in others not or hardly regulated. Molecules, like Glyphosate and others, remains in the food or diffusing with the water cycle and finally contaminate our daily food. In general, it’s known that large concentrations of pesticide are harmful to humans. This results in potential cancer and other illnesses. But what happens to interaction of small pesticide concentrations in food and humans? It’s assumed that the molecules penetrate human cells and remains in the body forever. In the long term, molecules cumulate to a dangerous concentration with the effect of increasing risks of diseases.
Industrial processes produces food and beverages 24/7. Manufacturers are interested in the quality of raw material before processing in order to comply with government regulations and FDA guidelines. Thus, producer put large effort into lab equipment to qualifying raw material.
