Overworked & Under Spray- Pesticides' Danger to Young Farm Workers

The dangers of pesticides on our food aren't limited to the ramifications for those who eat the chemically-sprayed food. In addition to our soil, air and water which come under attack, the health of the farm workers responsible for planting and harvesting suffers.
A short documentary released last week by Toxic Free North Carolina illustrates the dangers. Even more unsettling? The subjects of "Overworked & Under Spray" are six teenagers who worked the fields. Thanks to Pesticide Action Network for spreading the word about the video.
