Is our dependence on pesticides harming the health of our children? Every day, children are exposed to up to 130 chemical pollutants from pesticides. All around the world, scientists and doctors are raising the alarm, linking the increase of child cancers, birth defects, and autism with exposure to chemicals in pesticides. This program follows the tracks of pesticide molecules to show how some of the most dangerous ones get into our everyday life. In France, children breathe a pesticide classified as
probable carcinogenic - it’s one of the best-selling pesticides and is distributed all over the world. In Hawaii, politics and citizens battle with the pesticide industry. This island paradise has become an open-air laboratory where corporations test their future plants and seeds, however, Hawaii has also experienced an explosion in birth defects on the island, and residents voted against the massive use of pesticides in the fields close to schools and hospitals. The pesticide industry sued them to allow the use of pesticides to continue. Filmed in France, Germany, Hawaii, Belgium, and the U.S.A. 56 minutes. Closed captioned. Copyright 2016.
