I feel bad for the farmers who use too much of pesticides without looking the consequences. I read this story about a farmer having health problem. A French farmer who can no longer perform his routine farming duties because of permanent pesticide injuries has had his day in court, literally, and the perpetrator of his injuries found guilty of chemical poisoning.

Continuing the discussion by Jamie. Read about 5 million farmers Sue the giant for huge amount.

Pesticides are the only toxic substances released intentionally into our environment to kill living things. This includes substances that kill weeds (herbicides), insects (insecticides), fungus (fungicides), rodents (rodenticides), and others. These big giants are killing the environment knowingly. Hope this time they get at punished for the act.
